We're thinking about starting a class with these at our track.
My indoor(nitro) club ran this class. (Toro truck class). All I can say it is a blast to drive. The body has a ton of front downforce. But the rear has little to none. The turn in is outragious but you can't get on throttle to early or the rear end will rotate on you. You have to practice keeping the rearend behind the front Cab.

With the dutch nitro tour we used this body too, remove the rear stabi, helps lots! When there's grip enough, you can put the stabi back on...

It was actually quite fun, because we had 1 heat anti-clockwize, and that gives wrong grip levels on some corners, you could go tipsy just because you where of the line and then got on it

Our track was set up as a mild road course (one slow s-turn) but as a rule no rear stabalizer could be used

The 720 has a staggering 76 option parts available for it. I'm wondering what everyone is actually using on their cars and what the most common upgrades are.

Also, what engines and pipes are the Team guys using? I'm adding an engines section to the KB and it would great if I could list exactly what each person is using, both here in the US and abroad, to help answer the question "What engine/pipe should I get?"

Thanks!

Mentioned upgrades to the 720..
I have: Installed the new gas cap, put in the break one way bearing shaft, put in titanium piviot balls (710 & 720), blade type rear swaybar (720), Aluminum mid bearing brace, CVD's all around. Did some other upgrades to ghetto proof my 710 when racing on small parking lot tracks.

720 is loaded for 301! I'm hunting Mugens!!
