INTRODUCTION:

Serpent designer Billy Easton, former 1/10 scale 2wd World Champion, and the designer of the successful Cobra 1/8 series of cars, and the Spyder 1/10 RM, MM and SCT, has created this new masterpiece.  

The RTR Spyder buggy is based  on the high end competition version of the Spyder MM buggy and shares most components and geometry.   All option parts of the race version alsof fit the RTR version.   It comes complete with everything except transmitter batteries and  car battery.

CHASSIS:

Composite chassis plate with a layout allowing for a perfect weight balance, and optimal space for the electronics, battery and servo.  The front Kick-up angle in the Chassis incorporates more clearance for racing and allow for more nose landings

FRONT AND REAR SHOCK TOWERS:

Composite front and rear shock towers. The thick composite shock towers have multiple shock angle positions allowing customers to fine tune for varying track conditions.

SHOCK ABSORBERS:

Dual system 12mm big bore shocks with coated threaded bodies, a unique cap design, a superbly sealing o-ring and spacer package. The Shocks can be used in Bladder or Emulsion setups. The shock-set comes with a set of moulded pistons to choose from.  A selection of 5 springs-sets is available to fine-tune the suspension settings.  Shock Collars with inner o-rings are used on the threaded bodies to set-ride height.

FRONT UPPER BULKHEAD:

The front upper bulkhead is and supports the upper links and shock tower in the best possible way. The front section offers the option to mount a front wing and sway bar unit

FRONT AND REAR TRACK ROD ENDS:

Spring steel front and rear track rods are mounted to durable composite captured ball joints.  The track Rods have L/R threading for easy adjustments.

FRONT WISHBONES:

The front Wishbones are made from a super strong composite material. The arms are angled to optimize the CG and pivot on 3mm captured pins on the inside and out. The arms have 2 mounting positions for shock angle and are prepared to use an optional anti-roll bar if needed.

 

STEERING SYSTEM AND ACKERMANN:

The steering system has a reverse swinging pivot system that optimizes the efficiency through all different types of corners. You have 3 Ackerman choices to choose from.

STEERING BLOCKS:

The steering blocks fit 5x10x4 mm bearings. The steering blocks utilize some of the best high strength materials on the market today.

CASTOR BLOCKS AND SETTINGS:

Caster block inserts come as 0, 2.5 and 5 degree version all of which are included.  The caster blocks are very compact and strong units made from a special composite material.

DIFFERENTIAL:

The gear-differenial  is a super compact, effective and durable unit.  The structure and assembly is common type in this class, but the high quality parts and well functioning will make it stand out.  The height of the diff can be changed with optional inserts.

CLUTCH:

The car features a solid slipper combined with a steel gear, to have a simple and durable system.  The slipper clutch is optional.

REAR UPRIGHTS:

The rear hub uprights use a larger 5x14x4 outer bearing and 10x15x4 mm inner for ultimate lasting performance. The rear uprights utilize some of the best high strength materials on the market today.

The rear uprights allow you to adjust, the toe in from -2 to + 2 degrees by use of various inserts also included in the kit.

WHEEL AXLES AND WHEEL HEX: 

The spring steel wheel-axles utilized 12mm hex adapter to follow current market standards. The front springs steel axle is fixed, while the rear wheel-hex is a composite version.




BATTERY SPACE MOUNT AND WEIGHT BALANCE:

The battery is mounted perfectly in the center line of the car, and can be moved to front or back to play with weight balance. Pieces of hard foam are supplied to do so and secure the battery in position. The battery-top-brace has a secure quick release system with handy twist nuts.

ANTI-ROLL BARS:

Anti-roll bars can be fitted on the front and rear of the car, but are optional. They can be used on high grip surfaces to further adjust the cars performance


MOTOR PLATE AND MOTOR GUARD:

The motor plate is a machined aluminum; it is then anodized and machined for weight.  The composite motor guard will keep your motor protected even after the hardest of landings.

REAR TRANSMISSION CASE:

The composite rear transmission case is light and durable. It allows the customer to adjust the differential height to each specific condition. It also securely holds the motor plate, differential as well as supports the rear wing mount and rear carbon fibre shock tower.

REAR DRIVESHAFT SYSTEM, WHEEL AXLES: 

The spring steel drive shafts are thin and light, yet durable.  The spring steel wheel-axles are 5mm, light and durable, guided by the 2 different size of bearings, inner 10x14x4 mm and outer 5x13x4 mm. The driveshaft pin is fully captured to prevent any failure. These bearings are for sure to stand up the rigors of any track condition.

REAR SUSPENSION BRACKETS AND TOE IN:

The 3mm spring steel pivot pins are held in place by the suspension bracket made from aluminum.  Inside the bracket you use inserts to set toe-in and roll center. You can adjust the toe-in from 2 to 4 degrees and adjust the anti squat from 0 to 4 degrees.

REAR SUSPENSION ARMS: 

The long and durable angled rear suspension arms are very tough units to withstand the rigors of the track and the hard landings.  The rear arm offers 2 options for shock position and two mounting locations for the rear anti-roll bar if needed.

REAR CHASSIS SKID PLATE: 

The composite rear skid plate connects to the chassis plate. This connection allows you to unclip the rear end in one piece, but helps reduce the total cost of maintenance. It is also made from extremely high strength composite material.

BODYSHELL AND REAR WING: 

The light and low cab-forward style body, made in top quality clear polycarbonate,  has a nice flowing line, steep front windscreen  for down force with indents in the section in front of the windscreen. The shark fin on the roof of the cabin offers not only style but stability.  The smooth body lines enhance the cars appearance and do so in style
The polycarbonate rear wing utilizes raised cutes in the sides to improve wheel clearance.

REAR WING HOLDER:
