Serpent 720

Just last month we posted the announcement that the guys from Serpent was going to be releasing the new Serpent 720. At the time there wasn't much info to be had about the Serpent 720, that was until now. Here are some more exciting details about the new Serpent 720.

The new Serpent Seven 20 continues to improve upon the long line of championship-winning, ultra-successful, and highly-competitive 1/10th scale cars from Serpent, setting new standards in quality, ease of assembly, ease of use, and outright performance.

The Serpent 720 features the following major enhancements:

  • Wider sweet spot makes for easier setup
  • Easier assembly
  • Front & rear factory assembled gear differentials
  • Optimised geometry
  • Pre-assembled RCC shock absorbers
  • Improved features throughout

The new rear end of the Serpent 720 features new 1-piece lower wishbones and fully adjustable uprights. As with all the wishbones on the Serpent 720, the lower wishbones can be used on both the left and right sides, minimizing the number of spare parts needed to bring to the track. The rear upright features robust pivotball mounting points on the bottom and two upper camber link mounting holes for fine-tuning rear roll center. The all new rear anti-roll bar for the Serpent 720 is now ball-raced for extra precision. Stiffness is quickly and easily adjustable by changing the linkage mounting points on the lower wishbones or alternatively by changing the position of the ball joint pivot point on the roll bar itself. To further stiffen the rear end of the Serpent 720, Serpent has created a distinctive S-shaped carbon brace which spans the two rear bearing blocks.
