Titanium screws work well...
Ceramic bearings also save some wait... do other things and you'll compromize in strenght and other things...

I don't use them, but there are different manufactures. You should select the screws yourself. You probably want soms spares too

www.the-border.com had 710 screw set kits, haven't seen them for the 720...

Default parts 803178

hi

can anyone tell me the above 720 parts is the 2-speed shaft (spring steel) be used in 710?

Also I have bought this steel pinion 16T 802512. Its a great option part but I notice the clutch bell is wobble badly. Anyone experience this? the clutch bell seems good after I exchange it back to 17T aluminium pinion.

Should fit with some dremel work. The left nudge for the pulley screw is more to the left or right....

The 16T is to 'small' to manufacture. It's adviced to not use it. Some drivers also complain that it will not give more bottom speed because you'll only generate wheelspin.

I'm not sure, but i've heard that the 16T being to small to manufacture with good quality and durability. It's the reason why the 720 changed it's ratio a little, so you don't need the 16T anymore... but i'm not sure...

The spring steel 2-speed axle will fit both the 710 and 720.

Will the 710 universals fit the 720? I keep losing front dogbones and want to change over to universals to solve this problem. If not where can I find the universals for the 720?
