Festival of Speed
The Serpent eGT8 Cobra is 1/8 scale and is a monster of a chassis in comparison to my much loved Tamiya’s.
It is 4wD and powered by a punchy DRAGON RC Brushless BL8 2490KV Motor, with power supplied by TWO Lipo batteries.
This amazing RC car gets around the track with ease and is so planted to the tarmac when at speed, that it seem like the car is on rails! The speed down the straight is immense and would think that speeds can reach approx. 68mph!
Tyre choices are critical to making sure that the Serpent is operating at optimal performance, and due to the high speed and of course stress to the rubber, these tyres will have a much shorter life span than those that I run on my Tamiya’s.
The Crystal Palace track is perfect for running the Serpent on, as the track is a high-speed one with plenty of straight line speed and a few technical turns to slow this beast down (a bit).
I’m excited to tune the Serpent so it performs much better at the Crystal Palace track, as well as make sure I’ve got more than 1 tyre choice… and of course, plenty of Lipo batteries ready!
