Default East Civic by Central RC

Ok guys, some of you already have seeing the body running in Asia and in USA. From the maker of the world famous Central Lola, now we have the East Civic sedan.
The body is ready, with efra number assigned and embossed in the mold and our first shipment is on the way. As soon as we have it, we will send it to Roar for approval. Hopefully we will have it approved by mid May.

We will start selling the bodies inmediately and we are already taking pre-orders

As i comment in another thread, some of the Serpent drivers have being testing this body since long time. We have being able to find a good balance with steering and stability. The body comes with the holes market for the 720and the NT1. We reccomend to mount the body in the marked position (same for spoiler)

So far i have not change that much my setup when switching from the most common body to the civic. Juts adding some more or less toe in the rear as well as some more or less front camber in the front, depending on track conditions, is working for me. Some drivers have found the need to change a little bit more their setups, but at the end, they have being able to run fastest but overall more consistant laps with this body.

DJ and myself have being running the body for some time, so we have already some experience. Please fell free to ask and we will answer all your questions

I had a chance to test this body at the US Open and all I can say is STEERING!!!! Just as Paolo has posted it has more entry, mid and exit steering than anything else out there!!

Make sure to tell your local shops to call Serpent USA to order some or call Serpent USA for more info.

Can you send Body`s to Switzerland?
We also have a adress in the US were you can send them to.
Because there is no dealer for Serpent in Switzerland, but 3 Drivers of the championships want one.

Hi Madjack, sorry for the pic, is not that good and i know is kind of hard to see al the details in the picture. But it's even harder for me to write about all the deatils.
It looks like bodies will be here really soon and we can start shipping this Friday to dealers. So hopefully really soon you will be able to catch all the details by yourself.

For the West Coast guys, let me tell you that Kamikaze has placed a large order, so get in touch with him to pre-order.

Paolo
