That is not made by Hero, it was made by a Hong Kong Company, aluminum, colored treated. It is looked "exactly" like Hero's.

No I run sedan body and big track, here
That's quite a technical track too so the chassis must have lots of steering for you to say it oversteers even for this. I guess the team should have had this chassis for the worlds.

Can you describe to us the effects on the car handling? does it generate more rear grip?

For those of you that previously ran a RRR WCE or MTX-4, I'm just wondering how you're doing with your 720. Do you think you are doing better with the 720 or about the same? i.e. Are you qualifying or finishing mains higher than you were before? Are there things about the 720 that you like better than your previous car? Are there things about your previous car you like better than the 720? And lastly, are you considering switching back?

I know there was a lot of excitement when the 720 came out. I know a lot of hardcore MTX-4 and RRR guys switched. I guess the question I'm trying to have answered is, "Was it a good decision to switch cars?"

this is a personal opinion, handling wise i like the 720 better than my RRR WCE, lap time are a bit faster in my 720 than my RRR only problem with 720 is the plastics they are not as durable as the RRR this is the department that Serpent should improve

Good call... I was talking to a Mugen Team driver the other day and he asked me why do I drive the 720... I told him that I've driven the top 4 cars on the market today.... and as for the Mugen... The Mugen is a great car... But for my driving style though, I prefer the 720... If you've driven the 710 like I did and had the car dialed/setup correctly... Then you'll love the way the 720 can handle... Now, if you've never driven a Serpent, but only driven a Mugen or Kyosho, you may not like the way the Serpent feels... You really have to work on roll-center setup and dampening to get the 720 dialed... Much like in the same way the 710 was... The 720 can be setup to be driven nice and smooth if that's what you like or can also be setup to attack the track and be driven hard... As far as the 720's plastic quality and being durable... I must say Serpent could have done alittle better job in that area... The 705 and the 710 plastics were better... Much better... I'm sure Serpent is aware of the issues and are working on correcting them... I hope... ... Heck I wish RCTECH had spell check...

I must say I have no problem with the plastics on the serpent 720. The first batch had issues with the rear arm pivot balls, but that has been fixed. I know serpent-usa was giving replacements to poelpe, to maintain a good repore with their clients.
