Just TRY and get those diffs out between heats!

I also heard they recommend you use red grade threadlock on everything, or JB Weld.

They need to come out with a new car so they can try to compete with Mugen and Kyosho again. Hell, the 710 is barely better than a NTC3.

You know me too well don't you.

For the 720, its more of a wish mainly because I've tried a few cars and can see small and subtle differences that it can make to small changes. The problem is the deisgn of the new car is already set ...

I do believe a 710 won the winternats oops I mean dominated O ya i also think there was one mtx4 in the A and one in the B main hmm must be a great car everyone said it was going to be.

From what i have heard with testing the new car it was running 12.5 at ft myers. So i'd have to say look out everyone else

The 710 has been out forever

Someone read my mind.

Fact is, the 710 has so many setup options is not even funny. And more than half of those setup options are never used or arent moved from stock.

Mugen did not win the winternats because Mikey concentrated on 1/8 since his 1/10 was demolished by a 1/8 during open practice.
