Serpent selected the Italian made Novarossi pullstart engine for the Cobra GT. The outstanding quality level, high performance, combined with easy starting and long lasting runtime, makes this engine the ideal partner to start racing. Novarossi also offers a special backplate in case you change to a bumpstart system later, so you can continue with the same engine even longer! The engine is mounted securely on machined aluminum engine mounts.
Polished tuned pipe system
The Dragon RC polished inline tuned pipe system works really well with the Novarossi engine and produces a sharp and powerful tune. Fire it up !
Chassis in 3mm 7075 T6 aluminum , with machined pockets to create flex make lighter. Kick-up angle on front for stable landings. Countersunk holes. Slots to locate the front and rear suspension mounts precisely. Angled sides to increase stiffness.
Large foam bumper, which is kept in place by a upper and lower nylon bumper plate.
Composite stiffener front and rear, to give extra stiffness, but still allow some flex as needed for extra traction.
Central radio / servo mount
Composite compact composite radiobox which offers good space for the steering and throttle,-brake servo, the receiver and the receiver battery. The whole assembly including linkages can be taken off easily and fast in one go, when cleaning the car, or doing maintenance.
Central low dual brake system
The Cobra features a low positioned dual brake system with lightweight glass-fibre disks with springloaded race-brake pads. Very effective stopping power.
The famous Serpent clutch in 3 shoe version has the right setting for smooth performance, but when you hit the throttle hard it will accelerate the Cobra like crazy. Gearing 16/19T
Automatic 2-speed gearbox with centrifugal shoes. The gearbox comes straight from the Viper 977 onroad 1/8 car. Gearing 45-49T
The foam airfilter sits very low in the car, and snugfits tight next to the fueltank.
Steering blocks assembly
Composite steering blocks combined with C-hubs for precise steering. Black hard steel wheel-axles with large size bearings , precision threaded aluminum wheel-hubs with offset and aluminum wheel nuts.
Durable oversized lower suspension arms in strong composite nylon. On the lower side the special shaped downstops screws are mounted. The lower shock-mounting pins are secured with a small grubscrew from the bottom, so they wont drop out.
Front anti-roll bar
The ballraced front anti-roll bar system, consist of a spring steel bend wire, which is guided through the diff-cases and runs in ballraced steel adaptors. The wire is linked to the lower suspension arm, with a captured adjustable threaded pivotball, for very precise and low friction operation and easy tuning.
Shock tower and body mounts front
4.0mm thick aluminum anodized shock tower with 3 upper positioning holes for the shocks and and 3 holes for roll-center positions. 1 centrally located adjustable bodymount , and 2 forward mounted adjustable bodymounts.
Angled steering system / servo saver
The bell cranks are angled to reduce the angle of difference between the total caster and steering plane. Therefore you will have less bump steer and a truer steering Ackerman through the entire range of suspension
Ackermann plate aluminum
With the design of the steering bell cranks when changing the Ackermann you will not need to adjust your steering tie rods. You simply will only need to adjust your end points on your radio.
Rear suspension arms
Durable longer oversized lower suspension arms in strong composite nylon. On the lower side the special downstops screws are mounted. The lower shock-mounting pins are secured with a small grubscrew from the bottom.
Rear uprights assembly
Composite uprights with 3 upper roll-center positions. Strong steel track-rods with L/R threading and strong balljoints to pre-set camber. Hard steel wheel-axles with large size bearings and larger inner ones with precision threaded aluminum wheel-hubs with offset, and alu wheel nuts.
Rear anti-roll bar
The ball raced front anti-roll bar system, consist of a spring steel bend wire, which is guided through the rear wing mount and runs in ballraced steel adapters. The wire is linked to the lower suspension arm, with a captured adjustable threaded pivotball, for very precise and low friction operation.
Shock tower rear
4.0mm thick carbon shock tower, integrated into the rear section for extra stiffness, with 3 upper positioning holes for the shocks and 3 holes for roll-center positions.
Wing mount and body mounts rear
Polycarbonate rear low aero wing. Central rear body mount with the rear body post, which are adjustable in height easily .
Captured pivot pins and balls and bolted hinge pins

Shock absorbers RCM big-bore 16mm
Anodized threaded aluminum shock bodies with durable 4mm shock-rods. Pre-load adjusters with o-rings inside for ride height setting. Shocks use large diameter membranes and large diameter o-rings and bushings to create a super smooth and leak-proof package. Large diameter pistons are held in place by a nut on the polished shock-rods tops. Open type spring retainer to let dirt out easy.
RCM shock springs
Colorcoded shock springs are supplied for the 1st standard set-up and all springs are grinded flat top and bottom, and checked individually for tension and length and matched.
Compact gear differentials
