Juan Hildalgo reports his ENS race in Aigen Austria.

Well...! ENS round 1 in the beautiful Aigen track, Austria, is already in the books.
Back home with my dad after four days of Racing.

Sweet and sour taste after a good pace in the qualification, scoring a P1 and a P2 and securing the second position in the grid.

In the final, one of the strangest things that ever happened to me occurred, in the warm up everything was fine, and in the beginning of 45Â’ final, I missed all engine power in the first laps and drivers who were behind overtook me in the straight and unfortunately some hit me and I finished in the grass (Yes, I was, actually really slow😅)
After some laps power just came back again (yes, magically🤔) and trying to recover I run out of fuel at 4Â’10”
After all, really happy with the performance of the 750EVO, with which I honestly think we could have fought for the win. Good pace and fastest laps in the 45Â’ final!

So thatÂ’s racing sometimes...now already thinking in the next one,

I would also like to say that it felt so good to finally meet friends from RC again, we had a good time together. Really grateful with Julius Kolf, Klaus Lechner, Michael for the technical advices and Iñaki Montesinos for the good pit stops! Every race is part of continuos learning.

Congrats to Jilles Groskamp for the win and thanks to all those who support me.

See you in the next one!

Merlin Depta reports his ENS race at the Aigen track in Austria

Back home with my dad after four days of racing at European Nitro Series Rd1 in beautiful Aigen, Austria.

I haven't had a radio in my race since exactly one year at the same track with the same event making it hardly to the A-main by bumping up.

The more surprising was our pace this year! I arrived super relaxed taking this first ENS as holiday from the Merlin McFly workshop.

It took me the first 1-2 runs to get used to my radio and feeling for the car but from this point on we found ourselves in the top spots every single round!

Scoring a P2 and P2 in the first two qualifiers we managed to go into the main final from second position with strongest competition right in the neck!

As the main final started I felt that the first set of tires was not as good as the other one we drove in within the warmup so I tried to keep my position as long as I could. Thanks to Dominic for this amazing and super fair fight within the first minutes of the race... Blocking away the whole 8-car-train behind me 😅

With the second set of tires the pace was o.k. again and with 8 minutes to go I found myself within the Top4. A flameout while refuelling made us lose some places which resulted in P6 after the final.

I must say that it felt so great to finally meet again friends from RC, have a good time, a chat and a drink together. It felt so great to have an awesome team Serpent (Michael, Jill, Ricardo, Martin,Julius, Konstantinos you Malakas are amazing) with me in the paddock. Klaus did an amazing job on my engines and in the pits. He is so unbelievable motivated that I couldn't ask for more. It's so good to share this hobby with my dad who has always supported me over the years and is still taking care of me.

I also want to congratulate my friend Simon for this great performance in the OPEN 1/8. Also Dominic and Toni were super strong.

Thanks to my sponsors making these trips possible

Till next time!

Serpent Medius X20FWD '21 carbon is shipping!!

X20FWD Â’21 improves on the very successful X20FWD touring car.
The chassis is based on the popular mid motor design, using a light weight and strong 1-piece motor mount concept, without any interference between the front and rear chassis flex while still allowing center flex adjustability. The advantage for this style of design is to allow maximum flex capabilities without impacting the drivetrain, meaning smoother power delivery, more consistency and less chance of stripping spurs. And it uses the all new dual ball bearing DJC shafts and our new Steering hub allows adjustment of Axle height, offset and Roll center.

Alessio wins AMCI Italian Championship!!!

" The race was in my home track "Naxos world track", just one shot race to become national champion. A bit disappointed because a lot good italians drivers could't come for the COVID situation.

The 80% of the cars was Serpent, every car worked realy good. I have used my standard setup and the car was super good in every condition. In the final, thanks the good balance of the car the tyre consumption was low, this allowed us to have a winning strategy.

Serpent gots, Tq, best lap and victory. In the final there were nice fight between me and other Serpent drivers like Occhipinti, Giaimo, Musolino. Thats also the arrival order.

Serpent team driver Stick King with his Serpent X20 Fwd

The 1/10 FWD race was held at TRC HK last weekend. The race was postponed twice due to pandemic but it didnÂ’t affect the racersÂ’ enthusiasm and there were over 100 participants took part in the race.

Serpent team driver StickKing with his Serpent X20 Fwd, finished strong and brought home the TQ and win. StickKing took the first and fourth rounds of the qualifies to secure the TQ spot.

He won the first final without any challenge but a different story in the second final. Senna took the win in the second final as StickKing had a mistake. In the deciding final, StickKing was leading from tone to tone and that brought him the overall victory.

Another Serpent drivers Chee and Kelvin Hu, who are famous GP drivers in HK, also had a solid race. Chee finished fifth and Kelvin just missed the podium in the B main.

A great result for the Serpent Team in Hong Kong!!

Serpent Spyder SRX4 Gen3 is ready!!

10 years ago, we started the journey into the development of a belt driven 1:10 4wd offroad car, with the intent to revolutionize the market. The original SRX-4 was born, although it was a good car, it had its short comings. Since that time we have continued to develop, test, design and re-designed it behind the scenes in our secret lab. It had to be easier than any car of its kind to work on, handle with precision and ease, be maintenance friendly, and share more parts across the 1:10 categories we compete in. Aside from those targeted positives it also needed to be better than any 4wd car in performance we have created to date. Foresight was key factor, when the SRX-2 Gen3 was being born, we already had a good understanding how to craft together from its DNA the ultimate 4wd version. The two cars had to be worked on in tandem to make sure it was possible to reach the goals we had set forth. The SRX-4 Gen 3 shares over 50% of its SRX-2 Gen3 relative, an accomplishment we are quite proud of. This was really important as we didnÂ’t want customers to have to purchase a significant amount of new parts just to operate two cars. Lowering operational costs is always a positive thing, and there is no doubt we have managed to achieve this goal. The SRX-4 Gen3 is a belt driven masterpiece, when evolution becomes the revolution.

Alvaro Fernandez is Northwest regional Champion 2020 with Serpent.

In this difficult year due to Coronavirus situation, with some national races and EC Championship cancelled here in Spain, we was able to race only regional races in the Northwest of Spain here at Galicia.

This year we try also electric touring superstock with the new Serpent X20, racing on same wekeends like our usual category 1/8 On Road Nitro with our Serpent 989.

A lot of work on pits with both categories but really fun, and things goes very well as we won the Championship on both scales with one race to dispute end this month. Both cars X20 & S989 worked very nice in our different tracks, really happy with their performance!



I hope this situation can change soon in the near future to see races with more pilots and see all our friends from other places.

I hope 2021 can be better for all. Only just add my sincere thanks to Serpent and Bumpers Online for their support!
Thank you!

Alvaro Fernández

An evolution of the original X20 Medius!
Learning from the X20 we have improved some handling characteristics to make the car
more nimble and improve corner speed, stiffening of the chassis in critical areas to change
the flex points along with tweaking the roll centre has led to the all improved speed.
A Refresh on the already smooth drivetrain gives us more acceleration and nicer torque
delivery with the all new ball raced driveshaft system.
Innovative New Steering hubs allow a multitude of setup combinations including an industry
first axle offset option.
The new X20Â’21 is lighter, faster and more adjustable.

Serpent 804450 Oneway diff fr S7XX is now available!

The drag assisted one-way for the Serpent 750 is a very nice option.
Replacing the normal front diff, it enables you to still brake and turn in like a diff but the exit drive and change of direction on-throttle is much better.
It is important though to adjust the oil viscosity according to the available grip level.
With lower grip level you should go to thicker oil to get more front braking power.
