From Serpent:

The Serpent Cobra E-Truggy in RTR trim is an ideal basher type car that can take a lot of beating and  it’s also a great package to start real racing !  Based on the Cobra E-Truggy it has the outright speed, great handling, reliability, rigidness and durability you need.

The RTR package is really dialed:

  • factory assembled racing chassis
  • prepainted and precut low type truggy body and large composite rear wing
  • premounted truggy tires/wheels/inserts
  • pre-set 4S to 6S capable waterproof 150A speedo ( DragonRC)
  • 2000kv brushless long body motor (DragonRC)
  • Digital 2.4ghz transmitter (DragonRC)
  • Metal gear servo 20kg ( DragonRC-Savox)
  • 3 oil filled gear differentials
  • Big bore shocks with rubber dust boots and machined aluminum shock towers
  • Spring steel transmission parts and turnbuckles, front and rear cvd driveshafts
  • Front and rear anti-roll bars
  • Large battery-cases with easy felcron straps
  • Machined aluminum chassis plate
  • Fully ball raced
  • Batteries for the car and transmitter are not included

The body shell is available in orange, red, green, blue and red, as well as a clear type.

Serpent offers a wide variety of optional parts for this car to further improve performance, lighter or for even nicer looks.

Main features

Car

Fully expert pre-assembled and pre-set  chassis and electronics.

Transmitter

DragonRc 2.4 GHz  steering wheel type transmitter with plenty settings and good range. Comes with small and light receiver.

Speedo

DragonRC waterproof speed controller with a massive 150A capacity to control the brushless motor  and 4S or 6S battery power

Motor

DragonRC long body 2000kV brushless motor with easy color-coded connectors

Body

Prepainted and pre-cut  low e-Truggy body, in 4 main colors orange, red, Green and Blue. ( also clear one available as optional)

Tires

Premounted race ready   tires / wheels with soft compounds and pin type profile for incredible grip.

Chassis

Very narrow 3mm 7075T6 aluminum chassis, with machining on the upper face to make it lighter in strategic locations and to control flex. Kick-up front for proper landings. Angled side to increase cornering clearance, and secure and easy mounting side guards with 5 screws. Countersunk holes,   pockets to position the suspension brackets.  Overall the Truggy is designed to keep the weight very central  and near to the centerline as possible, to create a great overall balance.

Side guards / battery trays

Durable shaped composite side guards / battery trays that follow the line of the chassis, and mount with 5 screws each side. Front and sides high enough to keep the dirt out.  The guards/trays create a lot of stability. The batteries are mounted in longitudinal fashion, keeping the weight very low in the car. The battery trays features easy to use Serpent marked felcron straps to secure the batteries in place. Fits 2S and 3S batteries.

Motor mount:

The motor is placed in the most optimal position in the car, keeping motor-forces and transmission parts / alignment in mind.  Only one-screw  is needed to secure  the BL motor, in the nicely designed durable machined aluminum motor mount. Space for additional motor-cooling available as needed.   The space for the motor allows mounting all popular buggy and (monster)truggy motors.

Composite chassis braces

Allows the chassis to flex which helps improve bump handling. Front and rear.

Front bumper

Nicely rounded front bumper, same as on the Cobra buggy, to protect the front  anti-roll bar, suspension brackets, and flows inline with kick-up chassis front for safe landings.

Front suspension

Very long and durable composite lower wishbones, combined with upper spring-steel track rods.  2 lower shock-mount positions.  Down stops can be used as needed. Pivot ball type anti-roll bar rods.

Front steering / servo saver / angled

Innovative angled front steering  assembly 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.

Adjustable spring loaded servo-saver system with interchangeable Ackermann plates. 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..  Very easy to access and set-up.

The Inboard Bell crank keeps the lever and linkage inside the car. It will aid in the prevention of damage to the steering system.   Zero scrub radiuses on steering knuckle, helps reduce the jacking effect created by your steering knuckle offset. It provides a more direct fell while keeping the cars chassis more level while turning.

The front roll center can be changed quickly by moving the steering knuckle shims to their appropriate locations.

Topped off with a strong composite top-plate.

Front steering-block / c-hubs

Very durable front steering block   /  C-hub assembly .

Drive-shafts

Long and lightweight spring steel units with pressed in steel pins, laser-engraved.   Same length front and rear.

Wheel-axles / wheel-nut

Serpent spring steel threaded  wheel-axles with lightweight grey anodized aluminum wheel-nuts to keep the massive truggy wheels/tires on track.

Captured universal joints

Guarantees you will finish a race without losing a pin or set screw. All parts, axles and drive train components have capture pins

Front shock tower

Light, strong and durable machined 5mm aluminum units with 5 positions for shock angle.

Shock-set front  and rear

16mm big bore shocks, with hard anodized precision threaded shock-bodies. Shock boots in silicone rubber to keep the dirt out . Chromed shock-shafts for super smooth shock action . The larger o rings provide less overall pressure and a better seal without dragging on the shock shaft.

Suspension brackets

The hinge-pins / hinge pin balls are captured in durable composite suspension brackets . These capture the nylon roll-center inserts.

Anti-roll bar / anti-roll bar linkage with pivot ball

The anti-roll bars front and rear are made of high quality special spring steel, and are captured on the diff-cased in ball bearing  for perfect guidance and control.

Receiver box / servo mount / speedo mount

Composite one piece radio box to securely mount servo’ s, speedo and receiver.  For optimum balance the light receiver fits the top-case easy, with a small opening to allow cable to protrude. The speedo seats very low on a plate just above the chassis, so short cables can be used to the motor.  The servo is mounted in a vertical fashion.

Central diff

Optimized central gear-diff with  50T super-hard spur-gear .  Very small, compact design to reduce rotating mass to the max.

Transmission shafts

Durable but light and thin Serpent spring steel, laser engraved shafts.

Front and rear diff

Optimized gear-diff with  super hard spur-gears .  Very small, compact design to reduce rotating mass to the max.   Same version front and rear.   Diff coupler in spring steel seated in large bearings for durability.

Rear shock tower

Light, strong and durable machined 5mm aluminum unit with 5 positions for shock angle.

Rear uprights

Durable composite rear uprights with 3 camber positions

Suspension brackets rear

Durable composite units with eccentric inserts to change set-up.

Rear wing mount

The composite rear wing mount, allows to change the angle of the rear wing.

Rear wing

Two stage high down force wing, has two levels of angle, which also includes 2 fins. Helps improve down force and straight line capability

Body mounts

Super Low profile e-Truck Body

Improves appearance as well as keeps the profile low. Comes precut and prepainted.

Decals

Applied to the body.
