DragonRC waterproof speedcontroller with a massive 150A capacity to control
the brushless motor and 4S or 6S battery power
DragonRC longbody 2000kV brushless motor with easy colorcoded connectors
Prepainted and pre-cut low e-Truggy body, in 4 main colors orange, red, Green
and Blue. ( also clear one available as optional)
Premounted race ready tyres / wheels with soft compounds and pintype profile
for incredible grip.
Very narrow 3mm 7075T6 aluminium chassis, with machining on the upper face to
make it lighter in strategic locations and to control flex. Kick-up front for
proper landings. Angled side to increase cornering clearance, and secure and
easy mounting side guards with 5 screws. Countersunk holes, pockets to position
the suspension brackets. Overall the Truggy is designed to keep the weight very
central and near to the centerline as possible, to create a great overall balance.
Side guards / battery trays
Durable shaped composite side guards / battery trays that follow the line of
the chassis, and mount with 5 screws each side. Front and sides high enough
to keep the dirt out. The guards/trays create a lot of stability. The batteries
are mounted in longtudinal fashion, keeping the weight very low in the car.
The battery trays features easy to use Serpent marked felcron TM straps to secure
the batteries in place. Fits 2S and 3S batteries.
The motor is placed in the most optimal position in the car, keeping motor-forces
and transmission parts / alignment in mind. Only one-screw is needed to secure
the BL motor, in the nicely designed durable machined aluminium motormount.
Space for additional motor-cooling available as needed. The space for the motor
allows mounting all popular buggy and (monster)truggy motors.
Composite chassis braces
Allows the chassis to flex which helps improve bump handling. Front and rear.
Nicely rounded front bumper, same as on the Cobra buggy, to protect the front
anti-roll bar, suspension brackets, and flows inline with kick-up chassis front
for safe landings.
Very long and durable composite lower wishbones, combined with upper spring-steel
trackrods. 2 lower shock-mount positions. Downstops can be used as needed. Pivotball
type anti-roll bar rods.
Front steering / servo saver / angled
Innovative angled front steering assembly to reduce the angle of difference
between the total caster and steering plane. Therefore you will have less bump
steer and a truer steering Ackerman through the entire range of suspension.
Adjustable spring loaded servo-saver system with interchangeable Ackermann
plates. With the design of the steering bell cranks when changing the Ackerman
you will not need to adjust your steering tie rods. You simply will only need
to adjust your end points on your radio. Very easy to access and set-up.
The Inboard Bell crank keeps the lever and linkage inside the car. It will
aid in the prevention of damage to the steering system. Zero scrub radiuses
on steering knuckle, helps reduce the jacking effect created by your steering
knuckle offset. It provides a more direct fell while keeping the cars chassis
more level while turning.
The front roll center can be changed quickly by moving the steering knuckle
shims to their appropriate locations.
Topped of with a strong composite top-plate.
Front steering-block / c-hubs
Very durable front steeringblock / C-hub assembly.
Long and lightweight spring steel units with pressed in steel pins, laser-engraved.

Shock-set front and rear
16mm big bore shocks, with hard anodized precision threaded shock-bodies. Shockboots
in silicone rubber to keep the dirt out . Chromed shock-shafts for supersmooth
shockaction . The larger o rings provide less overall pressure and a better
seal without dragging on the shock shaft.
The hinge-pins / hingepin balls are captured in durable composite suspension
brackets . These capture the nylon roll-center inserts.

The anti-roll bars front and rear are made of high quality special spring steel,
and are captured on the diff-cased in ballbearing for perfect guidance and control.
Receiver box / servo mount / speedo mount
Composite one piece radiobox to securely mount servo? s, speedo and receiver.
For optimum balance the light receiver fits the top-case easy, with a small
opening to allow cable to protrude. The speedo seats very low on a plate just
above the chassis, so short cables can be used to the motor. The servo is mounted
in a vertical fashion.

design to reduce rotating mass to the max.
Durable but light and thin Serpent spring steel, laser engraved shafts.
