Serpent designer Billy Easton from USA, is part of a team of 5 designers, each with their own specialty. He is responsible for and very proud on this latest design of the Cobra SRX8, which he worked on for the past year. Billy used the input from many Serpent drivers, teamdrivers and distributors, to create this brandnew 1/8 buggy. The focus is as always on performance, but we have paid a lot of attention to ease of use, and durability. View also the Designer interview on our website
