C'est les amortisseurs la tête en bas que je trouve bizarre...

C'est clair qu'il est vraiment beau ce chassis...pas vraiment innovant mais vraiment superbe!En plus si il y a la qualité serpent comme pour leur chassis thermique...

Par contre les amortisseurs ressemblent a ceux de la serpent 720 (amortisseur RCC) et ils ne sont pas top, probleme de fuite.Enfin on chipote la.

C'est la reponse de serpent a la xray NT1 qui cartonne dans le milieu du 200mm (il n'y a qu'a voir le dernier CE)

Serpent have introduced this new 5 cell chassis plate for the S400 to optimise the car further when raced under the latest EFRA rules that require the use of only 5 cells. Machined out of a 2.5mm sheet of high quality carbon fibre, the plate is a simple replacement for the standard 6 cell version but now only sports 5 cell slots and this allows for a less tight radio equipment configuration. The chassis has contersunk screw holes on the bottom a better weight distribution, a machined slot under the motor to allow it to sit as low as possible and all the areas that are used for mounting the cars electrics have machined grooves to provide that all important cooling.

Serpent is pleased to announce the release of this carbon conversion set for the Serpent S400 electric touring car. Enabling a great performance advantage on carpet, combined with the use of foam tyres, the set features a machined 3.4mm thick carbon fibre 6-cell chassis plate, which is extremely stiff and perfect for these high grip conditions. A great feature of this chassis plate is that along with the recessed mounting points, to lower the overall centre-of-gravity, the cell slots have be pre machined so no extra preparation in this area is needed.

Also included in the set is stiff, front and rear, upper plates that also sport extensions that enable you to further stiffen the chassis by mounting the 4 supplied aluminium posts to both the upper and lower plates

Elle répond très très bien sur moquette en tout cas selon moi ;o) La finition est vraiment ce que j'ai vu de mieux (j'ai eu des Xray, Tamiya, Losi et Hot bodies). Par contre, biellettes en acier véritable et cardan aussi (synonyme de fiabilité...). Toutes les pièces sont magnifiques et la platine supérieure carbone s'emboite pile poil dans les pièces alu (presque pas besoin des vis:)). On va voir ce que Walter P.V. en pense après ce week-end!

Cette S400, cela donne quoi au montage et sur la piste? Est ce que chez Serpent ils ont été impécable pour sortir la voiture parfaite de boite?

Il y a t-il des points de montage à soigner ou à faire attention?

Coté piste, comment est le comportement, quels sont les réglages de bases, leur influence sur le comportement du chassis? Les points à faire attention?

voir mon commentaire un peu plus haut (et bien que je ne sois pas pilote officiel), mon avis est je crois pragmatique. Le plus gros reproche est le diff qui se desserre régulièrement (à surveiller donc) et pour l'instant, l'indisponibilité des pièces sensibles (plateaux de diff introuvables!).

Pieces de réglages:

image.php?ImageID=1234568885&size=350

Serpent has released 2 sets of new series shock springs, which are suitable for use with all current and previous Serpent shock absorbers. Sold in sets of 5 pairs of springs, 1 set contains 23mm length springs, 1mm longer than the older version, for the front of 1/8th scale chassis’ and both the front and rear of 1/10th scale chassis’, while the 2nd set contains 27mm springs for the use on the rear of 1/8th scale chassis’. Featuring a new colour rating these new series of springs are of a better quality, coming with ground flat ends, and as they no longer have a colour coating they function more accurately. The spring’s hardness is now identified by the coloured paint on the springs tip.

Pre assembled rear 35T gear differential.

New for the Serpent S400 is this innovative 35T rear gear differential. Designed with competition in mind, this new diff is only 5 grams heavier than the standard ball differential yet provides more consistent operation and there is absolutely no slippage, which helps improve acceleration. Another benefit is that it requires little or no maintenance or rebuilding and it can be simply set by just changing the oil. To keep the weight down, the differential is supplied with coated aluminium out drives and to get you on the track as quick as possible, the diff comes pre-assembled, with you only needing to add oil. Expect a front gear differential in the near future.

Last weekend saw the first running of the Xceed Challenge Cup race in the Netherlands. Organised by new rc racing accessory company Xceed in association with the MACH Club the event was a huge success and for Serpent the two day event proved very fruitful as the S400 took all three places on the A Final Modified podium and also placed well on the A Final Stock podium.

Rob de Haas, the man responsible for Xceed and for putting together the Challenge Cup sent us this report from the event -

Report Xceed Challenge Cup ’07

Friday 23rd of November, 4.30 PM. With a car fully loaded with goody bags, store equipment and armed with a time schedule I managed to get myself at the indoor event location. Friday evening was reserved for pre-registration and free practice for the competitors of the Xceed Challenge Cup’07. As soon as the XES, Xceed Event Store, was settled the first guys came along too complete their registration.

image.php?ImageID=1234569124&size=350

Drivers at the first ever Xceed Challenge Cup

For every competitor we created a goody bag, within an Xceed cap, body clips, poster and flyer and the goodies received from the sponsors. Included were the Xceed EP10 rubber tires for the 1/10th scale modified and stock class. Included for the 1/12th scale was the LRP-HPI Challenge 17turns motor. The guys who decided too use the free practice opportunity could test the tires and install their motor. In total 30 guys showed up for practice and the atmosphere was pretty fun already.

Saturday 24th of November, 7.45 AM. An early start, arriving 2 hours before the Xceed Challenge Cup would officially start. The contestant dribbled in one by one as we planned the official registration from 8 till 9 AM. The guys who already completed their registration on Friday had the opportunity to run some free practice laps before the controlled practices would start.

The available pit room was divided in two sections, cause we wanted for every driver to have his/her own spot to gear up the cars. The main section was situated in front of the course and the second section was situated in the room next to the track. The total competitors field consisted of 48 drivers after counting the final registrations. For the Xceed crew it was really nice too see that drivers from all over the country came too intend the event. Not only domestic drivers took the effort to compete but several international drivers from the UK, France, Germany and Austria showed up as well.

image.php?ImageID=1234569125&size=350

Busy pit area

The 24th was used for controlled practice till 3.15 PM and around 3.30 PM the first 2 qualifications took place. One of the main goals for the XCC’07 event was to let every competitor run as many times possible. With 4 controlled practices and 2 qualifications the drivers had enough time too be well prepared for the final racing day on Sunday.

The drivers were divided in groups per class. For the 1/10th electric modified 4 groups, 1/10th electric stock 4 groups and for 1/12th electric stock 2 groups.

The controlled practice lap times turned out to be the base for the lap times for the first 2 qualifications. Only the best qualify counted for the a place in the final. After running 4 control practices and 2 qualifies it was time for a delicious buffet and a drift demonstration from the RCD guys. The cars looked spectacular when the lights went off. Its hard for these guys too run on carpet with long straight pieces of track. But most of them mastered the track and gave a spectacular demonstration.

Sunday morning 25th of November, 8.00 AM early start again. The drivers had the chance too do some free practice in the first two hours. The last 3 qualifiers would start around 9.30 AM and the actual finales started around 15.30.

1/12th driver Remy Moller had a great start on the first qualify on Sunday. And take notice that this was his first 1/12th scale race ever. With his CRC he performed really good, driver Rik Veenma took second place with his 10 year old Corally chassis and with Daan Schuuring and the rest of the field right behind him.

1/10th stock driver Arjan Wolters, pitched down his pole position in the last qualify run. This final promised to be an exciting one seeing that the top 8 drivers only had a 6 second difference.

image.php?ImageID=1234569128&size=350

Rob Kuijper's distinctive pink S400

1/10th modified one of the head classes in this event. With an awesome power produced by a 3.5 turn brushless motor and running with the new categorized battery packs this class became one of the fastest in the electric scene. Rob Janssen, team driver of Serpent, driving his S400 took his pole position back in the last heat while loosing it too Bjorn Prumper in the second heat of today’s qualify run. With an extraordinary time difference of only 11th hundred of second between Rob and Bjorn this final promised to be as good as the 1/12th.

The finals of the Xceed Challenge Cup were exhilarating with a lot of close racing in the 1/12th Stock final. This was one the best finals of this day. As Remy Moller performed really well on the qualifications on Saturday, Rik Veenma was dominating the finals on Sunday. With 3 wins in a row he won the Xceed Challenge Cup 1/12th.

Something else changed as well, drivers were more eager too exceed there own lap times and win the challenge cup. The driving on Saturday was pretty neat, no big crashes and everybody cleared the track for a fast driver. On Sunday the exhilaration of drivers was noticeable, more fanatic and therefore the level of quality racing went up. The track was packed with visitors and you could notice they really liked seeing the finals.
