Default Serpent SRX8-GT



Being involved with the Gt category from almost the beginning, Serpent has understood the direction and path necessary to produce a race winning car. With the S811-GT being our Designer Billy Eastonís first GT, mating his knowledge of design with team drivers Joaquin Desoto and his son, as well as countless other team members, was a match made in heaven. Working tirelessly on new concepts, suspension geometry, product assembly and durability, our team was able to create an absolute monster of a product. The SRX8-GT has innovations at virtually every corner, while being one of the easiest cars we have ever produced to work on. Here at Serpent we are extremely proud of the SRX8-GT and have taken great pride in the design, from top to bottom. We didnít just want to make a new car, we wanted to make a new car that simply changed the game. If youíre looking for sheer performance and quality in one product, look no further the SRX8-GT is the one for you, this product is simply rivaled by no-one. Product
600057 Serpent Cobra SRX8 GT 1/8 GP

No word yet on an electric version but I bet it probably isn't at the top of their priorities at the moment. I'd guess we may see an electric version before the end of the year. It might be possible to convert a nitro version into electric using SRX8E parts but that'll be an expensive way to do it.

Yes. It looks absolutely awesome and really light weight compared to the outgoing Cobra 3.1 I can see me having to add lots of brass to get the car to minimum weight

The production car I've seen has plastic covers over the diffs. Also if you look at the Cobra GT thread a few posts up from bottom there is some pre-production photos showing the clear plastic covers installed.

Car looks really nice!

Wonder if using the SRX8e steering servo horn will make the steering linkage parallel rather than having it at a slight angle.

The promo site is now live so head over to check out the full specs of this awesome machine.
I can't wait to get mine and start testing for the first big GT8 race for me which will be the GT8 euros in Germany in June.
