Main specs of the F110 SF2 car.
Carbon fibre chassisplate in 2.5mm
Narrow chassis in high quality woven carbon fibre, stiff type, but enough flex to create more grip as needed. Countersunk holes in the bottom for an even surface. The chassis layout offers various ways to mount the battery central or backwards, and the servo can be mounted in 2 ways too more front or more to the rear. This allows the driver to play with weight distribution which has a big effect in F1. The battery and servo, together with the motor are among the heaviest parts in the car.
Chassis and holders fit Shorty packs
The kit includes the 2 carbon side-plates, so the speedo and receiver can be mounted on the side of the chassis, still centrally to retain a perfect balance. Composite holders kepe the Shorty packs well positioned. The Shorty packs nowadays have so much power, that a regular 2S packs in no longer needed to fit.
Superb looking high downforce front composite wing
The new realistic looking composite front F1 wing creates lot of downforce. On both sides of the wing the main flaps are adjustable, 3 position to choose. The nylon front bumper sits flush with the chassis and mounts rigidly with 2 large screws to the chassis. The bumper will absorb hard frontal crashes.
Front suspension with lower carbon wishbones
The fully adjustable front suspension allows for camber and caster changes, as well as toe and roll center adjustment. The manual shows a good starting point as base set-up. The lower wishbone-plate is made in durable 2.5mm carbon fibre, and allow for enough flex. The plate is machined thinner in the middle to allow the extra flex, especially when the full suspension pivotballs are used. The upper wishbones are adjustable to set camber. Shims above or below the balls of the suspension can be used for roll-center adjustments. Caster is set with the nylon inserts in the the front carbon topplate. Toe-in is set with the steering rods.
Durable springloaded steeringblocks with pivotballs
The steeringblocks are spring loaded on the kingpin, and create supersmooth suspension travel . Various springs available. The kingpin inclication can be easily changed with inserts. From zero to four degrees, with 2 being default. All inserts are included. The steeringblocks offer 2 ackermann positions.
Adjustable ride height to suit both rubber and foam tyres
The chassis offers the possibility to easily change the ride height with spacers.
Strong servo holder and servo saver
The aluminium servo mounts allow the servo to be mounted flat on its side, in either a front or more backwards position. The new centre pivot type steering system is very smooth and precise, as well as durable and offers 2 inner ackermann positions. The car can be used with the included small servo-saver ( includes splines in 23/24/25T) or solid with a lever ( also 3 included).
new, lightweight central shockabsorber RCC type with threaded housing for finetuning. A pivotball mounted hydraulic central shockabsorber connects to upper front and rear assembly. The small shocktower offers 3 holes for set-up changes. The foam insert type shockabsober feature a hardened shockrod, smooth o-ring/shim package and a threaded housing to enable spring preload changes with very small increments. The unique design enables also easy adjustment of the rear pod droop. The shockspring is selected and grinded flat for equal action. More springstypes and silicone oils available to play with set-up.
Springloaded Link-type rear suspension with single tube
The springloaded pivotball mounted side-links interact with the single silicone oil filled tube and the central upper shockabsorber to ceate maximum grip with the rear tyres.
Carbon fibre bodymount and topdeck
The bodymount doubles as sidespringholder and tube holder. Strong nylon bodymounts with fine tuning nuts for body-height.
Captured pivotball connection
The captured pivotball links the rear pod with the chassis. This innovative rear-central pivot system which connect the rear pod in new way with the chassis, and thus prevents any binding, creating more effective sidelink action, at any angle. With this set-up changing roll-center is also very easy.
Pancar style rear end
Strong carbon fibre lower pod and rear plate and aluminium powerpod sides. The right alu motorholder fits most commonly used motors . The light alu rear axle seats in bearings in nylon ride height inserts. All 5 types rideheigts inserts are included in the kit.
Strong and light aluminum rear axle
The light aluminum rear axle is more durable and comes close to the weight of a carbon fibre one ( which sells as optional)
Durable and light ball-differential, and light alu hex wheel-hubs
The ball-raced ball differential is supersmooth and easy to assemble, with light hardened steel plates. The hexagon diff and wheel adaptor are also lightweight and spin supertrue. One spur-gear is included.
Large 2 level adjustable rear wing
The realistic looking high downforce rear wing with 2 layers connects to the carbon rear plate. The top-wing can be adjusted in 3 positions for less or more downforce / drag.
The Serpent F110 SF2 comes as assembly-kit in a compact box with Serpent graphics. The box includes all the parts packed in bags following the steps of the online pdf-style full color manual and 2 decalsheets. The kit does not include, body, wheels-tyres or electronics.
The Serpent F110 SF2 is developed by Michael Salven in close cooperation with (race)engineer and ETS front runner David Ehrbar. The F110 SF2 is the next step in the evolution of the F110 platform that already won the ETS Championship title in its first season.
The F1 class is growing fast in popularity and the development of class and technology goes hand in hand. With the completely new front end, the innovative rear-center pivot system, the adjutsable steeringblocks, the realistics and performing new front and rear wing and the many other improvements, the Serpent F110 SF2 can put you in the winners circle!
