Yes, the size is 3.5x8mm.
I thought it was an inch screw because this is not a very common size here. I'll try to find them. Thanks.

Hey all, wondering what the general staring point is for tire diameter split, when going to a new track, or the default starting set up tire split is, I thought it was 1.5 mm, but wanna be sure, doing the math on the gear ratios, it works out to 1 mm for a perfect balance front to rear, THANKS!

You are right. 1 is the sweet spot but I also like starting with 1.5 .

Looks like Alessio Mazzeo and his 720 have the current TQ at the 2007 EFRA European Championship 1:10 B. We'll see if he can hold on to it for the next 2 qualifying rounds.

Results are being posted here: http://www.racingclubroeselare.be/fi...ack/index.html

More info and pictures of the event are posted at http://www.redrc.net

3 rounds all done, he leads by a solid 2.5 secs or so. Only one round left tomorrow and I'd be surprised if anyone beats his time because everyday it seems that the first round is always slow due to the dust coming from the roads nearby the track.

I think that's meant to go on the fuel tank lid.

I have not read the directions, but it is best that after you put in the orange o-ring that you use something to hold it tightly shut for a day or so. It will help the seal in the future. Just a tip. Use a hard/strong rubber band.

This thing feels like my 8th scale with that 3rd oneway. You will be spoiled if you run it!!

ZX vs. MF.. Like the other guys say, it is up to personal opinion. I like Novarossi= MF motors.
What is a 3rd oneway.
Where can I find some setup sheets on the 72007.I run in the NY area
so the tracks are not well groomed.Also I will be going to 301 raceway in june for that big race.Any setup tips for that track will be helpful.thanx

Check out my 720 Web site for info on the 3rd one way. I also have some sample setup sheets which should be applicable to both the 720 and 07.

I got a big problem with the traction roll whenever I race in a tight track.
Just wonder how would it be solved as i had tried too many ways in the setting.

Please advise.

A number of things you could try if you haven't already.

Locked diff front
Harder shore front
Higher roll center
