Remenber that the euro is high vs the $ and Europe is very expensive. I really think it is cheaper to get on in the US.
Thanks man.. That is exacty what I was looking for... I know that Europe is expensive, but I checked the prices and they are much cheaper than here in my contry.

Default Rear lower A-arm problems

I was curious if anyone has run into the same problem I am having with the rear lower A-arms and pillow balls? It seems as though if I just brush up against a board (not smack hard) it pushes the rear pillow ball into the A-arm causing a toe-out effect. I even super glued it and that didn't work. I am thinking about threading in a set screw in before I screw in the pillow ball to act sort of like a stopper. But out of all the vehicles I have owned and raced, I have never ran into this problem. Any suggestions would be very appreciated. Thanks

Thumbs up Re: rear arms of 720

I did have the same problem, I e-mailed serpent and they send me a new one with the more material added into the tread. send them an e-mail.
They have great customer support.

I too had the same problem and I emailed Serpent with my concern and they definitely stepped up to the plate and sent me a replacement. GREAT customer service. While waiting for the replacements, I used the pivot-ball from my old MTX-2 and it worked perfect.

Hey

Yeah, I had the same problem and I believe that the problem was with the rear lower arms... manufacturing problem.... anyway, I changed the arms and have no problem... to be safe.. I also used the Mugen upgrade pivot balls...

I don't know about the front (I run a one-way), but in the rear you should fill the diffs with 10,000, 20,000, and 30,000. This is what most 720's are running.

Gidde,

don't worry too much on getting all the oils from the get go....

the kit comes with all the fluids that you need to bulid the car. Start with the baseline set-up that the kit provides and test THIS on your track to get a feel (rear diff @ 30K), I feel your changes should not veer off too far from the stock set-up...

you'll love the car! Drive Hard....

Unhappy gear ratio

Someone know it´s some gear ratio table even of the 720, looked at myTSN but can´t find any there, there was a good one to download there for the 710 but it´s not for 720
