Transmitter and receiver
The DragonRC pistol type transmitter comes with a nice large LCD screen, which makes is easy to select through the easy menus. The small and light receiver is fitted inside the radiobox of the car.
The electronic speedcontroller is a fully Waterproof 120A unit from DragonRC with a small footprint which fits the Cobra like a glove. The new modern design is very small and attractive looking. Topquality soft silicone covered cables.
The DragonRC brushless sensorless motor is a strong 2450kv unit which gives lots of torque and amazing topspeed. , and is anodised in same bronze color as the other alu parts of the car.
Chassisplate in 3mm 7075 T6 aluminium. Kick-up angle on front for stable landings. Countersunk holes. Slots to locate the front and rear suspension mounts precisely. Angled sides to increase stiffness.
Large foam bumper, which is kept in place by a upper and lower nylon bumperplate.
Composite stiffener front and rear, to give extra stiffness, but still allow some flex as needed.
Central radio / servo mount
Composite compact radiobox which offers good space for the steering servo and the receiver.
Battery-cases / side-guards
The main eyecatchers are the extremely low laydown longitudinal placed battery-packs at each side of the car, being part of the side-guards, securely fastened with a fliptop-lid, for easy and fast battery changes. The weight low in the car and in the right position, well balanced. The Lipo holders comply with ROAR legal packs / dimensions.
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 a maximum motor-length of 70mm, which covers most widely used motors ( except for the truggy / monstertruck motors).
Composite steeringblocks combined with 10 dgr C-hubs for precise steering. Spring steel wheel-axles with large size bearings and larger inner with precision threaded aluminum wheel-hubs with offset . Flanged wheel nuts to guarantee that you will not loose a wheel nut in a race.
Durable oversized lower suspension arms in strong composite nylon. On the lower side the special shaped downstops screws are mounted. The lower shock-mounting pins are secured with a small grubscrew from the bottom.
Front anti-roll bar
The ballraced front anti-roll bar system, consist of a spring steel bend wire, which is guided through the diff-cases and runs in ballraced steel adaptors. The wire is linked to the lower suspension arm, with a captured adjustable threaded pivotball, for very precise and low friction operation and easy tuning.
Shocktower and bodymounts front
4.0mm thick aluminium anodised shocktower with 2 upper positioning holes for the shocks and and 3 holes for roll-center positions. Strong, in height adjustable bodymounts with wide top-section to seat the body well.
Angled steering system / servo saver
The bell cranks are angled to reduce the angle of difference between the total caster and steering plane. Therefore you will have less bump steer and a truer steering Ackermann through the entire range of suspension
With the design of the steering bell cranks when changing the Ackermann you will not need to adjust your steering tie rods. You simply will only need to adjust your end points on your radio..
Rear suspension arms
Durable longer oversized lower suspension arms in strong composite nylon. On the lower side the special downstops screws are mounted. The lower shock-mounting pins are secured with a small grubscrew from the bottom.
Rear uprights assembly
