Teaser: Serpent Spyder SRX-2 RM 1/10 Off-Road Buggy



Latest from Serpent:

Serpent will release the Serpent Spyder 1/10 buggy in the 2nd part of september .

For the last 12 months Billy Easton has been very busy designing and testing and redesigning what we believe is the best 1/10 scale 2wd buggy ! We decided to release the purpose designed rear motor version 1st , as that is whats raced mainly, and release the also purpose designed mid-motor version soon after, as well as the 2wd ShortCourse truck. No compromises.

So first the: Serpent 1/10 2wd buggy with rear motor (RM).

Main specs: Composite chassis, carbon battery-plate, carbon shocktowers front and rear, slipper clutch, machined heatsink motormount, big-bore shocks hardcoated, super-tough composite suspension parts, light cab-forward body, large rear wing, white front and rear race wheels, fully ballraced, high quality hardware, Serpent spring-steel transmission and suspension parts. Optimimal race-geometry, many set-up and weight balance possibilities.

Designed by Billy Easton, USA. World Champion 1/10- 2wd

All details to follow soon.

The seperate Serpent Spyder SRX-2 midmotor (MM) version will be released mid october 2013, for indoor and superhigh traction tracks. The RM and MM share many parts, but the Spyder MM design is optimised for MM only. No compromises.

The Spyder 2wd SCT RM will follow soon after.

#500001 Serpent Spyder Buggy SRX-2 RM 2wd 1/10

Reserve your now !

Full Spyder info in next week.

Serpent Spyder, Kyosho RB6, Associated B4.2, Losi 22 (2.0), Atomik V2MR, Durango DEX210, Tamiya TRF201, Schumacher Cougar, XRay (XB2?), Hobby Pro PRS1... Am I missing any? I've been playing with and racing toy cars since the early 80's, don't remember a time when we've had nearly this many competitive 2wd buggies to choose from.
And bring on short course trucks and buggies in every flavor!

I for one am glad to see 2wd making a resurgence,..

When I took a few years off to recover from surgery and went back to racing and saw short course truck dominating with no one running 2wd buggy like they did in the early 2000's I was disappointed to say the least...


Especially indoor racing?....SC is crap racing compared to the finesse of 2wd buggy....


Really glad to see racing that requires a good trigger finger, no bashing and jumping that requires skill...

I couldn't agree more except that I find 2wd buggy really quite easy to jump, especially compared with short course. A mod buggy in the air will do about anything you want it to, and then some!

I usually start out the season racing 2wd SC and 2wd buggy, then switch back and forth with the SC but take the buggy every weekend anyway. Then by the end of the winter season, I'm about only taking the buggy every weekend. It's just more fun to race with that group of guys around here anyway. Plus tires are cheap.

I kind of phrased that wrong...what I meant is 2wd takes more skill to land and jump correctly.....SC is all about launching...

Yeah that makes more sense. If an SC truck hits the ground with all four wheels generally in the same direction, it mostly works. The buggy is a little more picky...

I got'cha now!
