Default Serpent 411 ERYX 2.0 Touring Car



The Serpent 411 ERYX 2.0 is the next big development stage for the 411 platform. Featuring an ultra low centre of gravity, optimized weight distribution, high performance geometry and top quality materials throughout, the S411 should see you in the winner’s circle in no time. In fact everything associated with this car is of the highest quality, from the packaging and supplied manuals, right through to the product and race support.

Key new items in the 411 ERYX 2.0

  • Lighter geardifferential with composite gears and coated alu outdrives; less rotating mass and smoother
  • Lowered steering system; for more direct steeering feel and lower CG
  • Innovative floating servo-holder combined with steering-system; for less flex-influence
  • Lower shocktowers FR and RR for lower CG
  • Super - Short RCM shocks with softer membrames (same springs as before) for lower CG and improved shock action
  • New chassisplate 2.25mm for mounting split blocks
  • Split suspension brackets inner FR and RR for more flex
  • Improved harder suspension arms FR and RR and C-hubs for more traction
  • Kit includes 2 type of alu support brackets for the motormount, allowing more or less flex.

Why bother posting up a new thread? We have a good S411 thread already...

Eryx is the genus of a particular boa.

Amazing that only took 5 seconds to find.

Ha! Nice. I would NOT have used the Eryx name based solely on that coincidence

I hear the pricing will be about the same as the current team edition. Even though I am an Xray fan, Serpent does make a nice car. I like how they make the shocks shorter and yet utilize the same springs. I wish they had pulled that off with the T4.
