Serpent 747-e 200mm
Based on the 747 nitro sedan, Serpent has announced the electric 747-e. Starting out as a nitro sedan gives the car a couple of advantages, it makes the 747-e easier to drive, and you end up with a car that is more rugged than a “normal” touring car. Recommended power system is a 3S LiPo, 540 brushless motor of less than 5000kV, and an 8th scale ESC.

* Carbon fiber chassis, top deck, battery holders, and shock towers
* Gear diffs front and rear
* Bearings used on roll bars
* CVDs used in front, dogbones used in the rear
* Low friction belts

The part number for the 747-e is #804006 and you can get complete information at This Link on Serpent’s website.

Serpent Pre-painted 8th Scale Cobra GT Body
If you’ve read BSRC for any length of time then you already know we are big fans of pre-painted bodies. None of our staffers have any painting skillz, and quite frankly we would rather spend more time with our families or outside driving than wielding a rattle can. Today the fine folks over at Serpent announced a new Pre-Painted 1/8th Cobra GT Body. The body comes in their signature orange color and fits short wheelbase GT cars (325mm). It has a large rear wing for loads of downforce and is molded out of top quality polycarbonate.

The part number is #170311 and you can get more information over on the official Serpent Website.
