Serpent 733 1/10 200mm touring
Seen from Serpent's web, let's start the discussion here.
As copied from the web's,

733: Main features
- New geometry and roll-centers, lower center of gravity and modified weight-positioning for improved grip and better balance.
- Adjustable caster, camber, toe-in, width, wheelbase front and rear, ride-height, roll centers and more.
- alu front lower bearing blocks and suspension brackets, with integrated anti-roll bar holders and integrated alu middle bearing block
- ball-raced wire type front anti-roll bar system, more efficient and easier to tweak
- new servo-saver design, mounted on the chassis only, with new and easy to mount linkages, options to change ackermann
- split type rear end assembly, with alu holders for 2-speed/brake (from 966) and integrated anti-roll bar holders, and also split type rear alu bearing blocks combined with alu suspension brackets for easy differential access.
- New, very accessible brake system, with large ventilated disks, lower in the car, with ready to use race brake-pads
- New nylon suspension parts / wishbones front and rear
- New rear uprights and keeping the latest 720 steeringblocks, both combined with the lightweight alu pivotballs and nylon ball-cups.
- Very thick and strong carbon shock-towers front and rear with a variety of positions.
- High quality steel parts, stainless steel high speed bearings, allen type steel screws throughout the car
- Race proven Centax clutch (a Serpent innovation) combined with the reliable LC 2-speed gearbox

I still don't think it will be out next month if they raced the car this weekend and didn't have enough parts in case of crashes. They are still fine tuning I think august to september release.Can't wait to get mine.

How much do you think its going to cost? about the same as the 720 '09?

flylow 06-08-2009 09:32 AM


good luck:eek:

beta bob 06-08-2009 09:38 AM

I just realized that the rear end doesn't have that carbon "s" chassis stiffener

Serpent-Dan 06-08-2009 09:43 AM

Should be more than a 09 kit. 450-520 range

_cyclops_ 06-08-2009 10:41 AM

That looks totally new... amazing!

solitude127 06-08-2009 01:04 PM

The engine looks really moved forward.

Nitro-Racer* 06-08-2009 01:16 PM

i think that it looks more forward because the rear is very nude?

Geberit 06-08-2009 01:31 PM

What's the deal with the front bumper? More down force on the front axis or more cooling for the engine? I guess both!

spurgear 06-08-2009 02:35 PM

Im thinking those springs are there for illustration. It looks like the older ones and its mixed up. Shorter is supposed to be in front and longer in the rear

RC MARKET 06-08-2009 03:24 PM
