Serpent SDX4 roll center spacer

Serpent have introduced a roll center spacer for the Spyder SDX4. Made from 2mm aluminum hard coated, the spacer fits below the differential into the chassis.  You can also put 2 on top of eachother to create 4mm spacer. The design is made such way that the 2 spacers will also lock in position. Depending on the plates use you may need to also space out the rear stiffener. Increasing the roll center will move the differential higher as well, creating more grip and steering, but less easy to drive.

Developed especially with the demanding clay-type tracks in mind, the rubber will extract the maximum traction and performance from the tyre and it will become available in soft and hard compounds for both the existing range of 1/8th treads and also the new 1/10th buggy tyres.

Serpent SDX4 center gear differential set

Serpent have introduced new gear center differential set for the Spyder SDX4. This compact differential is the same as the front and rear diff, except for the spur gear. The durable and true composite 86T gear is included in the set, the others are  optional. The differential uses 10T and 18T internal gears combined with a composite cross shaft and spring steel outdrives. The center gear differential will make the Spyder SDX4 even easier to drive, less aggressive on power, compared to the center-slipper.
