Team Associated have launched those who have the task of replacing the famous and B5 and B5M, the B6 and B6D Team kits. Divide and conquer! In today’s racing, traction dictates your setup — period! With both B6 and B6D configurations available, getting to the top of the podium has never been easier. Out of the box, the B6 offers racers a setup developed for high to very-high traction, whereas the B6D excels when traction is low to high. Racing at multiple tracks, or where traction changes throughout the day, has never been easier; setups and tuning parts are interchangeable between the two configurations, making the B6 platform extremely versatile. Both versions come with the speed, durability and lineage expected of a true champion. Choose the configuration that suits your track and conquer the competition! Available in June.

high quality equipment, innovations, packed performance, made to last, easy maintenance and great information, service and support.
Its design was entrusted to Billy Easton and a team of 5 designers, each with their own specialty. He is responsible for and very proud on this latest design of the Cobra SRX8, which he worked on for the past year. Billy used the input from many Serpent drivers, teamdrivers and distributors, to create this brandnew 1/8 buggy.

Serpent is releasing an additional version of the belt-driven Serpent Spyder 4wd 1/10 buggy with a hardcoated lightened 7075 T6 aluminum chassis. The carbon chassis which is standard on the current Spyder SRX4 gives the car the extra flex, which works well on medium and lower grip surfaces, but with the hard coated alu chassis the car works better on medium to superhigh grip tracks.
The durable 7075 T6 alu chassis, laser-engraved with Spyder SRX4 logo is stiffer than the carbon version. The aluminum plate is machined to make it lighter, hardcoated for stiffness and durability and it has countersunk holes for a smooth lower surface.
