The video I just posted on 3hobby.net
should show you exactly how it performs "out of the box" in a furious race. The 720 took 1st, 2nd, 3rd in its debut race in Europe during the recent EFRA GP race.
To be honest, I just want to hurt Mugen and Kyosho drivers on the track ... the rivalry down here is very fierce...
Assuming that you mean you want to win from them in a fair race then your spirit is right. A lot needs to go into the prep to win a race though including practise. I know that my driving has gone downhill in the last 8 months mainly because I've had so little track time. There was 6 x 720, 2 x 710, 1 x MTX4 and one RRR in the main final of the above race. While this was an outstanding result for Serpent, each of those drivers not only had great cars, they were also skillfull and spent a lot of time on their prep for the race, including the MTX4 and RRR drivers.
The 720 definitely appears to be the faster (Salven very nearly got 20 laps on this track) and better (it took top three easily) car. It will help you do better in races for sure.
