    NT1 Wins Venezuela Nationals R6

    May 24, 2009 - 16:44 by Kevin 0 Comments


    Xray reports – “Saturday I was going to the track in the early morning because I had a new engine and I needed to break it in. After the break-in I tested the engine and pipe and they were very good. After that I started working on the setup and I found a very good one. Sunday morning. It rained in the morning and all drivers waited. When the rain stopped and the track was dry the Qualifiers started and the traction was very different but my car was working well in this situation though the lap times were very different from the day before. Finals – When the race started, I took it easy because the race is very long (1 hour) and my strategy was to make it to the end without a tire change. I knew other drivers would be changing their tires but my car was very good and the tires were working well. I want to say thanks to Emidio for being my pitman, and would also like to thank my sponsors XRAY, RCAmerica, Spektrum, JACO, MAXpower and EXOS fuel.” Read More… [Source - teamxray.com]

The basic concept of the Impulse / 705 / 710 / 720 has been an excellent platform and brought Serpent lots of success, many victories and many Serpent racers. Its time for the next stage. More than “just” evolution this time. ….. Focus as always on sheer performance, as you are used to from Serpent, as racing company pur sang. Many bigger and smaller innovations by Salven are packed in this high-tech racing chassis. Still with more focus than ever on user-friendly design, ease of assembly, maintenance and set-up, and a wider sweet spot. All that combined with further improved quality to face high-end racing ! Serpent has been testing the new 200mm gas-car Serpent 7XX on 2 tracks by expert and regular drivers. Test-results are very good and only small modifications are needed to make it perfect. The Serpent 7XX is a completely new concept and uses only the 2-speed, Centax clutch and RCC shocks from the previous model. Read more…
