BREAKING NEWS

http://www.rc411.com/pages/newsarchi...e=062006#18601

From XTREME RC CARS
Serpent Announces New 720

Posted on Thursday, June 01, 2006 at 12:26 PM by DerekB

Serpent is a name that you say to somebody that races on-road they immediately recognize. They have been dominating the black top for as longs as pavement has been made. Nitro Touring may not be as popular as it should be in the US, but that doesn't stop the die-hards from demanding better cars and Serpent hopes to deliver with their all-new 200mm race chassis, the Serpent 720. Based on the ultra successful Serpent 710, the car has been extensively tested on many different track conditions to ensure the best overall performance.

The 720 features the following major enhancements:
- Wider sweet spot makes for easier setup
- Easier assembly
- Front & rear factory assembled gear differentials
- Optimised geometry
- Pre-assembled RCC shock absorbers
- Improved features throughout

The debut race for this new chassis will take place on two separate continents on the same weekend, June 16-18. In Europe the 720 will be seen in action at the EFRA GP in the Netherlands whilst in North America the 720 will be competing at the US Nationals in Crystal Park Raceway, California.

When you guys see the attention to details on the new car it is great. they have listened to the people about issues some had with the 710, such as being able to use the same arms for right and left, not having to stock as many spares. Good job Serpent, Man I can not wait.

When you just look at the pictures, it looks almost identical to the 710. The major difference is rear section of the car. Anyway, I'm sure 720 will be an excellent car. One question though, since it looks quite similar to the 710, is it likely some of the parts for 710 will work for the 720

A lot of the old parts will work, but there are also a lot of changes.

who wants to buy a mugen? j/k

the car looks really good. i hope the "sweet spot" is indeed bigger now compared to the 710 so the setup is not too touchy.
