Serpent announced that the new S120 Pro 1/12 pan car kit is coming soon. The S120 pro is a revolutionary innovative 1/12 car design based on the F110 SF4. The S120 Pro makes use of the “link-less” design introduced with the SF4, meaning the designers have junked the usual side links in favor of a bearing-supported linear guide system that allows to brake harder and accelerate earlier while offering greater stability and consistency when braking/accelerating and steering input overlap as the rear pod movement is independent of chassis roll.
Let’s check out it now!
The car itself is based on a new ultra-narrow carbon fiber chassis that was made possible thanks to scrapping the traditional side links while allowing to access both inline and transversal battery positions. A 1-screw battery mount allows for easy battery swaps in both battery positions with the inline position utilizing a trick bottom-loaded battery tray. Other features include a new ultra-low center of gravity keyed rear pod design with shim-based ride height adjustments and the rear carbon fiber axle is also of an innovative design that utilizes aluminum sleeves to increase overall stiffness while a bigger 8mm bearing on the spur gear side helps to cope with the high loads of today’s high-power motors. The center shock absorbers utilize new larger diameter pistons and the dual roll dampers incorporate a roll limiter that also reduces the risk of dirt getting into the tubes.
Up front the S120 features an evolved SF4 suspension that utilizes a pan-car-specific geometry and that is easy to build and maintain. The specially designed top deck greatly supports overall chassis stiffness while allowing for two body mount positions and it doesn’t need to be removed for battery swaps, ensuring a straight chassis run after run. Included with the kit comes a special speedo and receiver mount that is used for the transversal battery configuration when the lower battery compartment plate is not in use. The plate allows for easy mounting of all components while the inline battery position utilizes an aluminum battery plate. The kit is rounded out by multi-Ackermann composite steering blocks, a special servo mount for precise steering response and an 18-ball ball differential. The kit will hit stores very soon.
