The Serpent Cobra e-truggy is the electric powered version of the very popular Cobra nitro-powered Truggy. Serpent created the E-Buggy Cobra few years back, with the motor front mounted together with the speedo, receiver and servo, allowing the batteries to be mounted in longitudinal fashion in the center-back of the car, and as low as possible, one side each, to create a perfectly balanced car. This same design has now been used also in the Truggy, allowing more space for the motor in case a driver wants to mount a truggy size brushless motor.

Main features:
Very narrow 3mm 7075T6 aluminum chassis, with machining on the upper face to make it lighter in strategic locations and to control flex. Kick-up front for proper landings. Angled side to increase cornering clearance, and secure and easy mounting side guards with 5 screws. Countersunk holes, pockets to position the suspension brackets. Grey anodized with Cobra Logo engraved. Overall the Truggy is designed to keep the weight very central and as near to the center line as possible, to create a great overall balance.
Side guards / battery trays
Durable shaped composite side guards / battery trays that follow the line of the chassis, and mount with 5 screws each side. Front and sides are high enough to keep the dirt out. The guards/trays create a lot of stability. The batteries are mounted in longitudinal fashion, keeping the weight very low in the car. The battery trays feature hinged covers, to keep the batteries well in place, but are easy to open for access.
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 mounting all popular buggy and (monster)truggy motors.
Composite chassis braces
Allows the chassis to flex which helps improve bump handling. Front and rear.
Front bumper
Nicely rounded front bumper, same as on the Cobra buggy, to protect the front anti-roll bar, suspension brackets, and flows inline with kick-up chassis front for safe landings.
Front suspension
Very long and durable composite lower wishbones, combined with upper spring-steel track rods. 2 lower shock-mount positions. Down stops can be used as needed. Pivot ball type anti-roll bar rods. Innovative angled front steering assembly 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.
Adjustable spring loaded servo-saver system with interchangeable Ackermann plates. With the design of the steering bell cranks when changing the Ackerman you will not need to adjust your steering tie rods. You simply will only need to adjust your end points on your radio.. Very easy to access and set-up.
The Inboard Bell crank keeps the lever and linkage inside the car. It will aid in the prevention of damage to the steering system. Zero scrub radii on steering knuckle, helps reduce the jacking effect created by your steering knuckle offset. It provides a more direct fell while keeping the cars chassis more level while turning.
The front roll center can be changed quickly by moving the steering knuckle shims to their appropriate locations.
Long and lightweight spring steel units with pressed in steel pins, laser-engraved. Same length front and rear.
Captured universal joints
The idea here was simple. Guarantees you will finish a race without loosing a pin or set screw. All parts, Axles and drive train components have capture pins
Shock-set front and rear
16mm big bore shocks, with hard anodized precision threaded shock-bodies. Shock boots in silicone rubber to keep the dirt out. Chromed shock-Shafts for super smooth shock action. The larger o-rings provide less overall pressure and a better seal without dragging on the shock Shaft.
Anti-roll bar / anti-roll bar linkage with pivot ball
The anti-roll bars front and rear are made of high quality special spring steel, and are captured on the diff-case in ball bearings for perfect guidance and control.
Receiver box / servo mount / speedo mount
Composite one piece radio box to securely mount servo, speedo and receiver. For optimum balance the light receiver fits the top-case easy, with a small opening to allow cable to protrude. The speedo seats very low on a plate just above the chassis, so short cables can be used to the motor. The servo is mounted in a vertical fashion.
Rear wing mount / wing
The composite rear wing mount, allows to change the angle of the rear wing. Two stage high down force wing, has two levels of angle, which also includes 2 fins. Helps improve down force and straight line stability
