This is the Serpent S100 Link 1/10 scale pan car kit. This High performance 1/10 scale pan chassis, features a plethora of high quality machined carbon fiber and aluminum parts. The fully adjustable front end creates loads of steering, while the spring loaded Link rear end system, combined with a diagonal positioned main shock and lateral damper with through shaft, control the roll of the car. This well balanced chassis offers a wide selection of set-up options to dial the car in best for any track and features that rival the best in the industry.

The S100 Link chassis consists of 2 main elements, a 2.5mm thick carbon fiber chassis plate and a rear aluminum motor pod. The chassis uses a Link-system, and is damped using a conventional centrally mounted shock absorber, together with a laterally mounted floating monoshock. The front end of the car is completely adjustable and utilises the now standard fixed lower suspension arms combined with active upper wishbones, which together with kingpin mounted springs ensure that the car is able to corner at high speeds and soak up any small bumps found on the racing surface.

In Depth Features:

  • Development: Serpent pan-car developers Markus Mobers and Paul Ciccarello, both with over 20 years of pan car racing experience, created this new masterpiece, assisted by Billy Easton and Michael Salven.
  • S100 Front End: The front end of the car features 11 different adjustments to help you get the most from your car, all of which are easy to adjust and measure. Fixed lower suspension arms are themselves damped by the central strut which uses rubber o-rings to take up the flex in this area, while the grey anodized aluminum front upper wishbone mounts are available in different caster angles, with 6 degree versions as standard equipment. With the spring loaded steering block king pins, the cornering forces are channeled through the upper wishbones, which enable the car to corner at high speeds.
  • Mono-Shock: Another unique feature of the S100 Link is its laterally mounted floating mono-shock which dampens the flex between the chassis and the motor pod. Mounted using ball joints from the top of the rear motor pod, both ends of the shock shaft are attached to the top of the rear carbon body mount plate on the chassis, and thanks to its design even the smallest of movements between the front and rear of the car are easily absorbed. This system plays a big part in how the car turns into a corner which can be adjusted through the use of different oils and shock pistons.
  • Central Section: The spring loaded side-bar links are made of composite nylon and control the roll of the chassis, together with the lateral damper and the main central shock. The central section is a combination of elements to control the movements of the rear end perfectly. These elements interact to create the best possible handling (roll, bump and alignment) under all grip-conditions.
    • A central main shock, based on the famous Serpent RCC technology; the shock tower enables various angles.
    • The laid down mono-shock, same as used in the S100T before, with through type shock-rod, and excellent dampening characteristics
    • Precision made springs and pivot balls.
    • 2 spring loaded shaped side bars
  • Body Post: For securely mounting the body shell to your S100 Link, the car has strong plastic body posts front and rear. All 4 posts are supplied with orange anodized adjustable collars to precisely adjust the body's height and the posts are supplied extra long to allow the user to cut them to their own preferred length. The front body posts have also been designed to help protect the front of the carbon chassis from splitting in the event of a heavy front impact.
  • Battery Mounts: On the S100 Link, the cells can be mounted in different positions by simply changing the composite battery insert mounting position, perfect for adjusting the cars weight distribution.
  • Servo Saver: The S100 Link comes supplied with a high quality miniature servo saver, which through the use of orange anodized shims, has adjustable Ackerman. The kit includes 3 aluminum servo posts to select from, which enable perfectly centered mounting of any popular brand servo.
  • Rear Axle Mounts: The lightweight graphite rear axle is mounted on bearings that sit within eccentric composite inserts that allows the user to quickly and easily change the rear ride height of the car by simply changing inserts. The kit comes supplied with all 9 inserts which range between 0 and 4mm, each differing by 0.5mm and all are reversible for an even wider range of adjustment.
  • Rear Ball Differential: The S100 Link comes supplied with a durable and high performance ball differential. The diff is easily adjusted by tightening or loosening a plastic nut that is accessible through the right rear wheel. The differential uses high quality steel balls and plates and is supplied with both silicone and graphite grease for use during assembly and maintenance. The re-designed rear diff features improved hardened D-plates and carbon shaft assembly for super smooth diff action.
  • Central Shock Absorber: To aid rear traction under acceleration and to absorb bumps, the S100 Link sports a centrally mounted shock absorber. Supplied with a soft spring, the pre load of which can be adjusted. The front mount of this shock absorber is used for adjusting the rear down stop and range of movement between the chassis and motor pod. The central shock is mounted on a carbon/aluminum shock-tower with a number of positions to choose from.
  • Rear Motor Pod Chassis: The strong basis is formed by the 2.5mm thick carbon fiber chassis plate with pockets to allow 1S or 2S Lipo pack, with supports enabling a forward or backward battery position, and enough space for all your valuable electronics. The newly designed motorpod is a beautiful combination of high quality machined aluminum brackets and top quality carbon fiber parts, bolted together to create an ultra stiff rear pod. The new motor-bracket allows a brushless motor to be mounted in the optimal position for car balance and offers good heat dissipation as well.
  • Packaging & Manual: The S100 Link is sold in a very compact matte black box and which can fit the built S100 (minus wheels). To allow you to build your car with the greatest of ease, Serpent supplies a full color instruction manual and integrated reference guide section that contains all the exploded views and latest options. The S100 link also comes supplied with a pair of decal sheets in black and white.
