New Serpent X20'23 Touring Car



Press Release From Serpent:

The 1/10 Touring car market has changed with some new and innovative designs – Serpent has been working hard on their latest and best EP touring car yet, they are ready to present the X20 ‘23! New and improved suspension geometry giving you maximum rotation!  Featuring a beautifully engineered aluminum rear diff, along with a completely new designed rear upper arm link setup providing increased adjustability. New shocks are also included with a larger 13mm bypass system. The Serpent X20 ‘23 is more adjustable, more refined and has more performance!


The duel ball bearing DJC shafts in the front and rear ball raced CVD have been given a tweak, we have removed the fiddly c-clips and replaced with larger single units which are included as standard. Giving ultra-smooth & silent torque application throughout the suspension and steering travel.


Available in both carbon and aluminium, the X20 ‘23 chassis is designed with symmetry in mind, chassis flex points have been updated along with the continuation of maximum flex adjustments.


With the changes made to the suspension geometry, changes of the motor mount were implemented so the belt system can become more efficient and mounted on the same pulley. A duel ball bearing tension system removes the possibility of belt skip.


Keeping with our successful duel pivot ball suspension system and innovative steering hub, we have added the now industry standard anti tire touch system. All new upper arms are mounted with the use of pivot balls, increasing suspension efficiency.


Engineering at its best! Our all new Aluminium gear diff will ensure complete efficiency and smooth action with its ball raced out drives.


New innovative lipo mounts have been designed with a spring loaded carbon fiber lever, allowing quick removal without the need for any tools. They also incorporate adjustability for different dimension batteries.


All new designed arm with complete flex adjustability utilising different inserts.


Moving away from the Hinge pin style suspension, we have developed a New arm mounting system which allows for the new pivot ball concept and increased adjustability for roll centre and camber gain.


A revolutionary concept, the X20 ‘23 features a ‘floating’ or ‘fixed’ Shock tower adjustment, allowing more setup control of flex to adapt and fine tune to all styles of track and grip condition.


A new 13mm big bore Progressive shock absorber with hard coating. Machined Shock Pistons are included standard to ensure maximum smoothness and durability.
