  • Description

    The Serpent Viper 989E 1/8 Electric On-Road Car Kit is the latest version of the 989. Electric racing has evolved with huge power and insane speeds. Especially in the popular drag racing class in the US. The power going through the transmission is extreme. The 989E is designed to handle that power and put it down as effectively as possible. The 989E is based on the ultra-successful 989 gas racer and shares it’s suspension, shocks and quite a lot of other features like the chassis plate and the driveshafts


    • Chassis: Symmetrical chassis plate optimised flex and torsion, in 7075 T6 aluminum, anodised and laser engraved. Chamfered edges for more ground clearance when cornering and countersunk holes.
    • Low big bore shocks: Coated threaded shock bodies in high quality aluminum. Supersmooth x-ring / machined bushing package, to guide and seal the spring- steel piston rods. Precision machined pistons included in 3 types. Threaded pre-load shock nuts in aluminum with O-ring inside. Light but strong nylon spring-cups. Selected, matched and paired shock absorber springs with color coding.
    • ESC mounting plate: The elevated speedo mounting plate gives stiffness for the battery plates and creates also room for oversized speedos. Even 1/5 scale speedos fit, a very popular choice in the dragster racing scene.
    • Motor mount: Ample room for a huge range of motor sizes. Even long custom made motors have enough room.
    • Shock tower front & rear: The 3mm carbon fiber front and rear shock tower with 2 positions for the front and 3 positions for the rear for upper shock mounting.
    • Steering blocks: Very strong composite steering blocks with 2 Ackermann positions, L and R use the same. The steering blocks feature inserts, which allow to change the kingpin inclination to a leading or trailing position. The steering blocks also allow use of the optional carbon fiber aero disks to be mounted for less flex and a more direct steering feel.
    • Uprights: Durable medium type composite uprights, which seat the wheel-axles bearings. The upright offers the mounting position for the steel camber-rod with L/R threading. Roll center changes can be made on top of the upright with shims. The upright can be mounted with the optional carbon fiber aero disks for more rear grip and straight line stability.
    • Wheel axles and driveshaft: The durable spring steel wheel axles combined with spring steel driveshafts bring the power to the wheels.
    • Pullies: Precision moulded super-true pullies, which feature holed sidewalls to let debris move out easier. Light and durable.
    • Belts: Low friction Kevlar reinforced belts with fine pitch. Long lasting and smooth.
    • Decals: The 989 includes one sheet with Serpent logos and one with 989 logos. Decals are very thin material and come pre-cut.
