Team Serpent just unveiled the sport edition of their competition level 411 1/10 scale touring car. To reduce costs for the club racer Serpent replaced many of the carbon fiber parts found on the original 411 and 411 Team Edition cars with parts made of a durable black “glass fiber” material. The result is a car that handles and performs like it’s more expensive brother but with a smaller price tag. What makes this so great is that you can upgrade the car to a full 411 Team Edition as time and money permits.
Super narrow, symmetrical, durable black glass-fibre chassis plate with optimized flex design, countersunk holes, central section holes all perfectly in center, pockets for gear diff, spool and spur.
Chassis Top Deck
Durable black glass-fibre top deck with optimized flex design. Battery-mount brackets and Lipo battery holders. Easy to use nylon battery tape holder, which allow the battery tape to run over instead of under the chassis. The holders can be reversed for other battery position. The Lipo holders will securely keep the Lipo in place, also at hard impact.
The servo is mounted on a separate plate so flex is less influenced.
