Serpent S100-LTR 200mm pan car kit |SERPENT
The Serpent S100 LTR is the next evolution of the S100 platform which is developed together with the input from our Serpent pancar team-drivers.
Main developments for the S100- LTR version
– Wider carbon chassis, versatile for different layouts
– steeringblocks with inserts
– unique friction free central pivot system
– Serpent light and long RCCX pancar shock
– pivotlink steering system
– servo position ( more layouts possible)
– redesigned rear podplate and lighter alu rear brackets
– lower center of gravity
The strong basis is formed by the 2.5mm thick carbon fibre chassis plate with supports enabling a forward or backward battery position, and enough space for all the valuable electronics.
The newly designed motorpod is a beautifull combination of high quality machined alu brackets and top quality carbon fibre parts, bolted together to create an ultra stiff rear pod. The motor-bracket allows the brushless motor to be mounted in the optimal position for car balance and offers good heat dissipation as well .
To aid rear traction under acceleration and to absorb bumps, the S100 Link sports a centrally mounted shock absorber. Supplied with a soft spring, the pre load of which can be adjusted, the front mount of this shock absorber is used for adjusting the rear down stop and range of movement between the chassis and motor pod.
The S100 Link comes supplied with a durable and high performance ball differential. Easily adjusted by a plastic nut, accessible through the right rear wheel, the differential uses high quality steel balls and plates and is supplied with both suitable silicone and graphite grease for use during assembly and maintenance.
The rear ball-differential features hardened D-plates and carbon shaft assembly for super smooth diff action.
The lightweight graphite rear axle is mounted on bearings that sit within eccentric composite inserts that allows the user to quickly and easily change the rear ride height of the car simply by changing between inserts.
The kit comes supplied with all 9 inserts which range between 0 and 4mm, each differing by 0.5mm and all are reversible for an even wider range of adjustment.
On the S100 WGT Link, the Lipo’s can be mounted in 3 different positions by simply changing the composite battery mounting position, perfect for adjusting the cars weight distribution. The S100-LTR can be fitted with a short or long battery.
The S100-LTR features a low carbon fibre bumperplate, with on top of that a strong and durable shaped front bumper.
For securely mounting the body shell to your S100 Link, the car has strong plastic body posts front and rear. All 4 posts are supplied with orange anodised adjustable collars to precisely adjust the body’s height and the posts are supplied extra long to allow the user to cut them to their own preferred length. The front body posts have also been designed to help protect the front of the carbon chassis from splitting in the event of a heavy front impact.
In the S100 LTR you can mount the springs in the original outer positon, or in the new more inside position.
The S100-LTR uses the same tube-system as on the S120-LTR. Precision machined aluminium coated tubes connected with small ball-links. This system plays a big part in how the car turns into a corner which can be adjusted through the use of different oils .
The central section is a combination of elements to control the movements of the rear end perfectly
– a central main shock, based on the famous Serpent RCC technology
– 2 spring loaded shaped side bars
– the tube system
These elements interact to create the best possible handling (roll, bump and alignment) under all grip-conditions.
The new innovative pivot-system which connect sthe rear pod with the main chassis allows for full free movement of the 2 main parts, thus avoiding any binding, enabling the side-links to work optimally. With small shims the ride-height can be easily changed.
– The S100 WGT comes supplied with a high quality miniature servo saver, which through the use of orange anodised shims, has adjustable Ackermann.
The kit includes 3 alu servo posts to select from, which enable perfectly centered mounting of any popular brand servo.
In the kit you will find 2 steering system options.
– The new balraced pivot link system with the servo on its side in longtudinal direction, mounted with 2 small and light servo brackets.
– The standard alu servo post with micro servosaver. The alu servo posts have eccentric holes, so any brand servo can be centered properly.
The new steeringblocks feature and adjustable king pin inclination with easily changed inserts, which are all 4 included.
