Serpent SRX8 RTR 1/8 Nitro Buggy w/2.4GHz Radio & .21 Pull-Start Engine
i took this buggy to my local track where i've been racing for about 8 months with my mp10, and laid down one of the best laps ever. this ready to run is actually ready to run. after proper breakin of engine, even with a non compitition " pullstart" powerplant its plan to see this chassis is legit. serpent does offer upgradebale parts that are a definite upgrade, but not needed... i defently recomend this for anybody who just wants anothrr buggy or just getting into sport and not ready to build a kit, this is for you...

Serpent SRX8 RTR 1/8 Nitro Buggy w/2.4GHz Radio & .21 Pull-Start Engine
This is a step up from ANY RTR nitro buggy, it's high end all around honestly, kind off between a race kit and a RTR package.

The engine is alright, it's (based in my experience) a force .21 pro, nothing fancy but it has some power for sure!

Electronics are meh, but work.

This thing rocks out of the box, the suspension is kit quality, the driveline is basically set as a high end buggy. You name it, this is the best RTR option period!

Looks awesome very good Quality!!! the only thing I don’t care for is the remote, but it’s not a deal breaker. I will replace the Transmitter and receiver, not a big deal . Love this buggy definitely recommend it to others

Serpent SRX8 RTR 1/8 Nitro Buggy w/2.4GHz Radio & .21 Pull-Start Engine
For starters, the glow plug was bad from the box, couldn’t even break it in because it would not stay running. Wouldn’t hold a tune at all. Absolutely no Info on what type of glow plug to use, no instructions for the motor at all either only reason it’s getting three stars if for lack of info, Once I changed the glow plug it ran amazing. Definitely change the servos and radio system if you wanna keep up at the local track.
Buggy us build tough that’s for sure. Hitting a huge double and slamming in to the back of the down jump and she kept on going, land nose first, yup, she cartwheels and kept going.

This buggy is built like a race kit. Very happy with purchase. I have broke the engine in with no issues. This is my third serpent rtr and all are great. This is far the best rtr nitro buggy on the market.

I’m very happy with this serpent nitro buggy rtr. It’s perfect for someone who wants to learn and try nitro out on the track. I took it out to thunder alley and it handled well on the track I do recommend upgrading to the srx8 pro parts along the way
