Default Serpent Spyder SRX2MH

I wanted to open up a forum page to discuss the new serpent srx2MH 2wd buggy. Serpent has recently released news of a new conversion and new kit. A revamp of the current srxmm the company has developed a alum chassis hybrid car. Transmission choice will depend on surface, but there is now 4 different style transmissions to choose from. This forum would be used to discuss things like build tips,set up advise,trans selection,and overall opinions. Bring out your voice and keep rc fun

Yes I saw Serpent UK are taking pre orders for them. You can find some pictures there. Looks like they will have some conversion kits as well for the SRX2

The UK distributor has some astro setups. Look for Tony Evodka.

As for options, it's really whatever you need for the conditioned. Everything we run in the US is either for tuning or just personal preference. The car is great out of the box.

SRX2 MH cars were on fire all weekend.

Griffin Hanna kills it at Masters of Dirt.


Paul C. and Kyle Gannon both make the A in 17.5 Buggy at the Associated Offroad Champs. Kyle qualified 3rd.

So some are going to install the alum up grade conversions on their existing srx2mm. I'll be interested in finding out for sure how that works. Be sure and note that the carbere fiber chassis (2mm) is for low ta extremely low traction surfaces.

The lightened aluminum chassis (2mm) is for blinky stock off-road.

Most of the active Serpent racers are on the various Serpent Facebook groups. Here it's somewhat quiet.

At the Team Associated Off-road Championship, held at Trackside Raceway, Kyle Gannon and Paul C. made the A Main of 17.5 2wd with MH conversions. Kyle might have qualified 3rd...I forget.

Mine is on pre-order! Anyone have the inside scoop on when I might get a notice that it has shipped? My buddy has the srx4 and I drove it on Sunday and it's wicked fast compared to my 2.0 22-4. I'm gonna have to try an srx4 sometime down the line. I've driven the nitro truck and srx8 buggy and 811. Nitro is my passion and I gotta say they are not an off-brand. I might be switching out all my Tekno stuff for serpent in the next few years!!

Kyle qualified 3rd, not sure where he finished overall.

We also had a 1-2 finish in 13.5 4wd, which shows the design of the drive train to be very good for even a spec class.
