For all Serpent 1/18 scale cars, 966 and 977, Serpent now offers the CVD driveshafts in hard anodized 7075-T6 aluminium . Laser engraved with length and Serpent logo.
These are around 50% lighter than the same durable units in spring-steel. So an important reduction of rotational masses to improve acceleration and braking.
Front per set: alu 7,15 grams:
Rear per set: alu 7,80 grams
We advice to use the alu shafts mainly for qualifying only, as durability is less then spring steel ones, which should be used for longer finals .
