Serpent Viper 988 1/8 On Road Nitro Kit is the culmination of almost 40 years of 1/8 scale on road competition. Sharing proven parts with the Japan Worlds winning Viper 977, the 988 features a long list of updates that make it the pinnacle of Serpent design and quality.  


  • Redesigned front and rear lower suspension arms in a completely new hollow type design, with separate screw on top-covers. The rear arms longer then before to suit the updated rear geometry. Optional carbon top decks and hard arms.
  • Redesigned rear end geometry creating more steering and overall grip, lower rear pivot pins are closer together, creating a longer link between pivot and up-right
  • Longer rear CVD style driveshafts in proven Serpent spring steel
  • Redesigned smart design anodized aluminum brackets and bearing blocks front and rear which allow for super easy change of parts, anti-roll bars and for general maintenance
  • Same anti-roll bars used in the front and rear
  • Redesigned type front down stops for quick re-setting from top or bottom even inside the pits
  • The compact disc brake unit moved back to the 2-speed shaft on smart redesigned aluminum bracket
  • Redesigned flow type aero style bumper with separate inserts to race open or closed to influence steering / grip
  • Redesigned optimized flex control 7075 T6 chassis with weight system and carbon flex brace
