Serpent is happy to annouce that Swiss topdriver in 1/10 EP Antonio Mangiaracina has reconfirmed with Serpent for the 2017 season.,
Antonio started with Serpent to run the new and innovative Project 4X car and has been racing the car for a few months now, as well as helping drivers around him to learn the car quicker. The results are very good already and he really loves the new car and its very different design !
Another brilliant event was held at the Schumacher Indoor Masters round 4 at Worksop this past weekend.
There were 14 heats of entries across the 2 classes of 2wd and 4wd buggy. Once again a huge entry for an event.
This time the Worksop track crew had designed a very fast and flowing circuit, so lap times were going to be pretty quick!
Doors opened at the venue at 7AM and there was a huge flow of people entering the sports arena. Many racers keen to get back racing at the venue as we hadn't been able to have an event here since November, this due to the Christmas Holidays. Many drivers had nice new shiny kit to use that they had received for Christmas presents.
As always the qualifying format was round by round, with the best 2 results to count towards the final and grid position.
It was Danny McGee on form in 4wd qualifying, just ahead of Jack Neal and James Helliwell.
In 2wd it was very close between Neil Cragg and Danny McGee all day, with both drivers taking 2 round TQ's each, but Neil having the faster time which would see him line up on pole position. Adam Perei drove superb and would line up a brilliant 3rd on the grid.

Topdriver Tim Benson from Germany joins Team Serpent
We welcome Tim Benson to the expanding Serpent Team. Tim will focus on racing the Project 4X car at major German events as well as ETS races. He will also run the Natrix 748-Wc 1/10 scale nitro car at a selection of events !
This is what Tim has to say:
First of all I want to thank Kyosho for the last years. It has been a great time, but its time to move on.
I was able to test the new Project 4x car and it felt great at the track. With all the diffent setting possibilities it makes the car very interesting to work with, different but very easy ! The feeling of the Project 4X car is very nice and made me change to Serpent.
Changing to Serpent also means a change of the Nitro 1/10 onroad car to the Natrix 784-WC which shows great performance at many races. I am looking forward to the new saison 2017.
Dakotah Phend, using the X Factory Infinity rear tower brace, has won the first two A mains here at the 30th annual C.R.C.R.C. MidWinter Championships. In an unbelievable finish to A-1, Phend inherited the win 100 feet from the finish when race leader Jared Tebo hit a marshal who was working on a back-marker. A-2 was a wire-to-wire win for Dakotah, with second-qualifier Tebo in hot pursuit looking for a way to pass almost until the end.
The X Factory Infinity tower brace moves the rear shocks to the front of the arms. In an interview, Dakotah said, “Moving the shocks forward helps smooth the car out through corner entry and exit, and helps it jump better.”
Dakotah also used the X Factory Infinity carbon fiber front tower. X Factory congratulates Dakotah Phend on a great race win!

Introducing an exciting new racing class in VRC Pro: Rally X (Rally Cross). Based on the popular WRX style rally racing, VRC Pro delivers a complete new r/c racing experience, a true mix of on- and offroad racing on special Rally X tracks.
Rally X events will also visit existing on-road tracks like Heemstede and Messina in the future, these tracks will be converted to RallyX style tracks for these events. The 2016 VRC Worlds kick off with Rally X on the X1 track located in a harbor container terminal area. The X1 and MACH-X tracks will be the first tracks available for Rally X.
Rally X is a new class of r/c racing that is unique to VRC Pro. Rally car racing does not exist in real live r/c racing, but as it combines on- and off-road racing many r/c racers are expected to embrace this spectacular class!
Rally X will be released on November 29 when the 2016 VRC Worlds kick off on X1.
Je m'y colle puisque personne ne daigne te répondre...
Je suis TRES satisfait des 24K (j'en ai 6 lol) : c'est constant, pas de mauvaise surprise... je mets tjs le timing à 50° en blinky.
Je pense que c'est pour une DTM ? Dans ce cas, en salle je mets 4,4 de ratio... sur grande piste je pense en-dessous de 4 (jusque dans les 3,50 d'après Trinity) mais je ne suis pas spécialiste.
Après, les PRT sont des moteurs réputés... LRP, Orion, les Ares Sky RC st tb aussi dc fais-toi plaisir avant tout...
l'axe est fait maison à partir d'un jonc de carbone et d'un axe xray cassé sur lequel j'ai récupéré le plateau. Je pense qu'il est possible d'utiliser un axe du commerce en changeant la butée de 3mm du diff par une de 4mm.
