Default Serpent 710 EP Frankstein....???

Why not use my serpent 710 with a brushless motor?
We (I and my brother) decided to develop a project to convert in a EP car.

Project Details:

1. Motor (7700) and ESC MAMBA
2. LIPO 4000 2S
3. Chassi Serpent 710
4. Intenal ratio ~8,36:1 final
5. Superior Deck and battery holder in fiberglass high density
6. Motor holder in aluminum
8. Spektrum DSM2

The project is done, the car is perfect, realy good, good steering and very strong.

sorry about the noise, a GP under maintenance....

Next step, install my 2,5T brushless

Very cool. You should figure out how to get it to 190mm so you can run it in TC. I imagine it would make weight and handle pretty good on carpet with rubber tires.

Awsome !!

I have always loved the way the nitros are built. Would think it would out handle the curent electrics but would be a slower accleration rate then them do to the heavier parts in the drive train. But it wouldnt slow down either. Might be a wash.

How heavy is it? Can I get a top view pic? Wheres the batt?

Love the spider diffs. Once you set them, there done. No more checking and adjusting between rounds.

Great stuff - I love out-of-the-box BL conversions Now you just need to lift off a bit sooner before the hairpins, or put a spool up front and brake harder

If you like the suspension on the Nitro TC's and think it would "out handle the current electrics" An easy way to do it would be to get the origonal Corally C4 or Xray T1. The Corally used the same suspension as the Serpent Impulse it even had Serpent logos on the parts.

Ya, I remember that car, was just talking to a buddy about that. I dont know about the corally but I had the serpent, didnt really like the car to be honest. Thought my Reflex ripped it up with out breathing hard. As long as there was'nt a mile long straight anyway.

Maybe find an old reflex, throw the parts on a carbon chasis and see what it could do. That would be a neat little project.
