I don't recall any part that has created this much of a talking point. I think we need to get something into perspective here and that is we already have the best car and yet we still aren't satisfied with being the best.

Like my sig says when only the best will do.

Sepent drivers don't compromise!!

I just ran my 720 for the first time yesterday. I built my car last year but ran my 710 for the rest of the season. I think I'm going to sell it (710) now and by another 720 but a 07 model. I should have run this car last year!!! I have optioned out my 720 and will install the 3rd one way in my 06 model. This is a good dicussion. People are really thinking about how we can use this part for our advantage.

I told you once you drove the 720 you would put the 710 down. Remember?

Default Overdrive?

That was one hell of an explanation on how the 3rd one way works.
My question is 18T overdrive pulley?

It will work with all types of front axle. Diff, one-way and solid.

The way I understand it a front oneway cannot be used. The car would have no brakes at all with a front one way.

Im new to onroad racing and new to these forums. I have decide to buy the serpent 720 '07 version when it comes out and I want to know what option parts are most of you using and what I should get?

On road racing seems to be very confusing.

To be perfectly honest the only option parts that you may want are the Long akerman which I think it comes with and maybe the one piece engine mount. The car is very good on it's own merit. Perfectly capable stock, however that new 3rd onway does look exiting.
