Serpent is a name that you say to somebody that races on-road they immediately recognize. They have been dominating the black top for as longs as pavement has been made. Nitro Touring may not be as popular as it should be in the US, but that doesn't stop the die-hards from demanding better cars and Serpent hopes to deliver with their all-new 200mm race chassis, the Serpent 720. Based on the ultra successful Serpent 710, the car has been extensively tested on many different track conditions to ensure the best overall performance.
The 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 debut race for this new chassis will take place on two separate continents on the same weekend, June 16-18. In Europe the 720 will be seen in action at the EFRA GP in the Netherlands whilst in North America the 720 will be competing at the US Nationals in Crystal Park Raceway, California.
