> Description

Shock absorbers RCM big-bore 16mm   
Anodized aluminium shock bodies with durable 4mm shock-rods. Adjustable nut to set the ride height setting. Shocks use large diameter membranes and large diameter O-rings  and bushings to create a supersmooth and leak-proof package. Large diameter pistons are held in place by a nut on the polished shock-rods tops. Open type spring retainer to let dirt out easy.  
   
RCM shock springs   
Color-coded progressive shock springs are supplied for the 1st standard set-up  and all springs are grinded flat top and bottom, and checked individually for tension and length and are matched.

Compact gear differentials   
Large Volume Differentials and oversized gears.
One of those must haves are high volume large internal gear diffs. We manned up here, and went back to the drawing board and completely re-tooled our differential approach. The internal gears are a staggering Mod 1.25 which puts them at the largest in the market place. Hardened spring-steel diff-coupler 13T with connector running in 2 oversized bearings  The Cobra-E uses a 13T / 44T combo gearing and a 44T central spur gear.   This drive ratio will provide amazing acceleration combined with the low vehicle weight.
   
Front and rear drive   
The front has captured driveshafts using a CVD system. The rear has durable black steel driveshafts with hard steel pins.
   
Hard black steel transmission parts   
The front and rear strong hard black steel cardan shafts connect the differentials .     

Body
Serpent superlow SRX8E buggy body, fully pre-painted in a very attractive design and pre-cut too.  The very low body has excellent handling, also supreme in jumps.

Rear wing:
The straight MD rear wing is included for great downforce and straight line stability.

Tyres / wheels
The Cobra is fitted with premounted DragonRC buggy racing tyres. The tyres are glued on durable but flexible DragonRC race-wheels with molded cell-foam inserts.  A super-package for excellent grip on the most common surfaces.

Oils and grease   
Top-quality silicone shock-oil, silicone diff oil and some grease is used to meet the standard set-up.

Shocktower rear    
4mm thick 6061-T6 aluminium shocktower, integrated into the rear section for extra stiffness,  with 4 upper positioning holes for the shocks and 4 holes for roll-center positions.

Wing mount and bodymounts rear   
Composite rear straight MD wing, with a strong nylon mount, with angle adjustment. Central rear bodymount.  


Angled steering system / servo saver   
The bell cranks are angled to reduce the angle of difference between the total caster and steering plane. Therefore you will have less bump steer and a truer steering Ackerman through the entire range of suspension   

Rear suspension arms   
Durable longer oversized  lower suspension arms in strong composite nylon. On the lower side the downstops screws are mounted. The lower shock-mounting pins are secured with a small grubscrew from the bottom.    

Mud-guards
Optional are the composite mud guards, which can mount to the lower suspension arms, and will keep dirt away from your anti-roll bars transmission and wheels.
   
Rear  uprights  assembly   
Composite uprights with 3 upper roll-center positions. Strong steel track-rods with L/R threading and strong balljoints  to pre-set camber.  Hard steel wheel-axles with large size bearings   and larger inner   ones  with precision threaded aluminum wheel-hubs with offset. Flanged and serrated wheel nuts to guarantee that you will not loose a wheel nut in a race.   

Rear anti-roll bar   
The front anti-roll bar  system, consist of a spring steel bend wire, which is guided through the rear diff case and runs in steel adaptors.  The wire is linked to the lower suspension arm, with a captured adjustable threaded pivot ball, for very precise and low friction  operation.


Shocktower and bodymounts front   
4mm thick 6061T6 aluminium anodized shocktower with 3 upper positioning holes for the shocks and 4 holes for roll-center positions.  1 centrally located adjustable bodymount.


Motor mount:
The motor is placed in the most optimal position in the car, keeping motor-forces and transmission parts/alignment in mind.  Only one-screw  is needed to secure  the BL motor, in the nicely designed durable machined aluminum motor mount. Space for additional motor-cooling available as needed.
The space for the motor allows a maximum motor-length of 70mm, which covers most widely used motors ( except for the truggy/monster truck motors).
    
Steering blocks assembly    
Composite steering blocks combined with 10 degr C-hubs  for precise steering.  Spring steel wheel-axles with large size bearings and larger inner with precision threaded aluminum wheel-hubs with offset . Flanged and serrated wheel nuts to guarantee that you will not loose a wheel nut in a race.

Front anti-roll bar   
The front anti-roll bar system, consist of a spring steel bend wire, which is guided through the diff-cases and runs in steel adaptors.  The wire is linked to the lower suspension arm, with a captured adjustable threaded pivot ball, for very precise and low friction  operation and easy tuning.


Chassis   
Chassis plate in  3mm  6061-T6 aluminium. Kick-up angle on front  for stabile landings.  Countersunk holes.   Slots to locate the  front and rear suspension mounts precisely.  Angled sides to increase stiffness.  
   
Bumper    
Aligned with chassis  kick-up for precise landings and to protect front suspension holder and anti-roll bar.
