Just days after giving us a sneak peek of the new Cobra 811 2.0 1/8 scale buggy, Serpent has released the full specs on the car. As we mentioned earlier, the Serpent Cobra 811 2.0 has a completely revised rear end including a wider rear track thanks to longer suspension arms and drive shafts, longer suspension travel with the help of longer shock bodies and shafts, rear shocks relocated to the rear of the shock tower, new taller carbon fiber rear shock tower, and a ball bearing supported rear sway bar. Other updates include lexan mud guards mounted to the lower rear control arm, nylong mud scrappers mounted to the rear uprights, improved diff gears and larger bearings.
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. Laser engraved Cobra logo.
Aligned with chassis kick-up for precise landings and to protect front suspension holde rand anti-roll bar.
Composite stiffener front and rear, to give extra stiffness, but still allow some flex as needed.
Central radio / servo mount
Composite radio box which offers good space for the steering and throttle -servo, the receiver and rx battery. The whole assembly including linkages can be taken off easily and fast in one go, when cleaning the car, or doing maintenance. One extra post is added close to the servo for stability.
Servo arms and linkages
The servo arms have a splined insert to have the right fit per brand. The linkages run very clean and tight and are easy to access to modify settings.
Beautifully machined 7065 T6 suspension brackets in anodized, laser angraved. Precision fit for the nylon roll center inserts and pivot balls / pins.
Steering block assembly
Composite steering blocks combined with 10 degree C-hubs for precise steering. Spring steel wheel-axles with large size bearings and larger inner with precision threaded aluminum wheel-hubs with offset . Flanged and serrated wheel nuts to guarantee that you will not loose a wheel nut in a race.
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 grub screw from the bottom.
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 adapters. The wire is linked to the lower suspension arm, with a captured adjustable threaded pivot ball, for very precise and low friction operation and easy tuning.
Shock tower and body mounts front
4.5mm thick carbon shock tower with 5 upper positioning holes for the shocks and and 6 holes for roll-center positions. 1 centrally located adjustable body mount , and 2 forward mounted adjustable body mounts, all with flip-tops.
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
With the design of the steering bell cranks when changing the Ackerman 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 grub screw from the bottom.
Super light polycarbonate mud guards mount to the new lower suspension arms, and will keep dirt away from your anti-roll bars transmission and wheels.
Rear uprights assembly
Composite uprights with 3 upper roll-center positions. Strong steel track-rods with L/R threading and strong ball joints to pre-set camber. Spring steel wheel-axles with large size bearings and larger inner ones with precision threaded aluminum wheel-hubs with offset . Rubber dust covers in the rear to protect the cvd system and keep the lubrication inside. Flanged and serrated wheel nuts to guarantee that you will not loose a wheel nut in a race.
Composite mud scrapers which mount to the new uprights, and will keep the inside of your wheel cleaner in case of muddy conditons.
Rear 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 adapters. The wire is linked to the lower suspension arm, with a captured adjustable threaded pivot ball, for very precise and low friction operation.
Shock tower rear
4.5mm thick carbon shock tower, integrated into the rear section for extra stiffness, with 5 upper positioning holes for the shocks and 6 holes for roll-center positions.
Wing mount and body mounts rear
Composite rear wing, with strong nylon adjustable rear body mounts on wide body-support bridge located far enough to the rear, to support the bodies in best way.
Captured pivot pins and balls and bolted hinge pins
All spring-steel hinge pins are either captured or bolted in place and made in spring-steel quality. This insures your chances to finish an hour long main event, while battling for the lead. This relieves stress on the hinge pin when adjusting the kick up, or anti squat. Your pin is free to rotate to any angle without binding.
Shock absorbers big-bore 16mm
Hard Teflon coated threaded shock bodies with 4mm shock-rods. Hard anodized aluminum screw on shock-tops with Serpent laser engraving. Pre-load adjusters with o-rings inside. 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. The shock-shafts are protected by rubber boots.
RCM shock springs
Short type color coded shock springs are supplied for the 1st standard set-up Springs are ground flat top and bottom, and checked individually for tension and length.
