Serpent Viper 989E 1/8 EP

Die Serpent 989E Viper ist die neueste Eloktro-Version des 989.
Der Elektrobereich hat sich stark entwickelt, was die Thematik Akku und Motor betrifft. Dies Leistungsfähigkeit dieser Fahrzeuge hat dadurch zugenommen. Besonders in der beliebten Dragster-Klasse in den USA ist die Leistung, die über das Getriebe fließt, extrem. Der 989E ist so konzipiert, dass er sich um diese Leistung gut umsetzt und sie so effektiv wie möglich überträgt.
Der 989E basiert auf dem äußerst erfolgreichen 989 Nitro mit vielen Teilen und Merkmalen, wie der Federung, Stoßdämpfern, Antriebswellen uvm..

Power delivery starts with the batteries. We made room for serious power, 4S, 6S or more. There is plenty of space for them, still they are very low in the car.
The batteries are mounted on a 2.5mm thick carbon plate. They can be mounted in 3 different positions, changing the CG to alter the cars behaviour
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
The topdeck is creating enough stiffness for the whole chassis and carries the receiver, steering-servo and belt tensioner
We also took care of the motor. We created the room for a huge range of motor sizes
Even long custom made motors have enough room
To avoid unwanted torsional flex, we created a “power box” around the motor, making this part of the chassis very stiff. To achieve this, the motor mounting plate is connected to the bearing-block of the spur gear shaft, to the chassis and to the mounting bracket of the topdeck
Power is then transmitted further with unbreakable, module 1 steel gears
Further down we changed to a super wide, 10mm rear belt. The power then goes through the solid rear axle which carries a n aluminium pulley as well
For the dragster lovers we also offer a wheelie bar as an option

Overview of the main specs

  • Chassis
    Symmetrical chassis plate optimised flex and torsion, in 7075 T6 aluminium, 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 aluminium. 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 shocknuts in alu with O-ring inside. Light but strong nylon spring-cups. Selected, matched and paired shock absorber springs with colour coding.
  • Shocktower front & rear
    The 3mm carbon fibre front and rear shocktower 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 fibre 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 centre changes can be made on top of the upright with shims. The upright can be mounted with the optional carbon fibre 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 durabele.
  • Belts
    Low friction Kevlar reinforced belts with fine pitch. Longlasting and smooth.
  • Decals
    The 989 includes one sheet with Serpent generic logos and one with 989 logos. Decals are very thin material and come pre-cut.
