For the Spyder SRX2 1/10 2wd buggy Serpent introduce the  laydown transmission in 2 versions that share most of the parts.

The laydown transmission ( or low-rider) is designed to move the weight more to the front and lower in the car. This works really well for high grip tracks like clay, carpet and astro.

To mount the laydown transmission you need to purchase the aluminum chassis upgrade separate.

The upgrade set for the transmission only includes the parts needed when using the SRX2 MM  car as donor-car.

Serpent offers the 4-gear laydown transmission, which is less aggressive on acceleration and therefor easier to drive, more forgiving. And the 3-gear laydown version which  is more aggressive and offers a more agile feel. Which to choose will differ per driver and track.

The transmission cases have the diff height inserts included, so you can choose for high, center or low position. It’s a matter of trying which position adds best to your driving style/feel and track.

The 7075 T6 machined motor-plate mounts easily to the chassis and transcase.

Serpent introduces the long awaited aluminum chassis upgrade for the Spyder SRX2 MM car.

The 2mm  7075 T6  chassis is hard anodized and all lower holes are countersunk.  The set includes the sidebars and center molded parts to keep the electronics positioned well  and stiffen up the chassis.  The chassis is ready to accept the 3 and 4 gear standard transmission and the 3 and 4 gear laydown transmissions.

The battery plate is a nicely machined carbon fiber one and adds to the chassis stiffness as well.

The front end has a separate aluminum  kickup-plate which is connected to the chassis with the durable molded connector brace. This allows you to also try a carbon fiber chassis easily in case needed and it’s cheaper and easier to replace a kickup plate if needed.

The set also includes the new Srx2 body which can be used for the current 4-gear car, as well as the laydown 3 and 4 transmissions.

The front and rear end simply mount on top of the chassis upgrade.

All parts sell separate a spares as well.
