Serpent has released the new SRX8GT TQ (evolution of the SRX8GT that has proven his great potential on the World championships in Miami at the beginning of the year). This racing car shares many high performance parts from the original platform. In addition to the details carried over from the SRX8 platform, the designers have introduced many new, design concepts to push it well into the future.
The all new gearbox of the 989 is now also included in this kit The gearbox has less inertia than the one from the SRX8. This improves acceleration. A much longer ramp for the roller avoiding locking of the second gear even with excessive wear on the shoes.
Despite being lighter it offers new features to improve reliability and consistently, the M4 setscrews for gap adjustment to help keeping the gap constant. The 2 bearings in the second gear “bell” for better truth of rotation and balance Easy access for adjustment from the outside.
Also all new on the SRX8GT TQ are the aluminium uprights with carbon brackets to have all possible rollcenter positions for each condition you could need.
The all new Adjustable GT clutch set was used for the first time at the Worlds and was proven to be the best available clutch. The kit will have the steel clutch bell with the black shoe, but also available is a optional aluminum coated clutch bell and also a yellow clutch shoe.
Also included in the kit are the new HTD diffs, these where also used by the team at the Worlds. One of those must haves are high volume large internal gear diffs. The internal gears are a staggering Mod 1.25 which puts them at the largest in the market place. With a maximum engagement surface on the tooth for earth shattering oil shearing, coupled with larger volume housing, these differentials reduce any fading or loss of performance. The internal ratio is industry 10/20.
