600698 Ackermann-set Cobra S811

Serpent introduces this new Ackermann set for the Cobra range of cars. The new central alu steering bar has the bearings pressed inside. The Ackermann plates are in tough carbon fibre . The set uses slightly shorter springsteel steering rods with L/R threading. Hardware as needed included.

The new Ackermann gives a more direct steering feel. Topdrivers like Neumann, Easton and Duraes have been using it over past half year already.
