Here are my questions for Team Serpent:

1. Will there be any 720 specific option parts available when the 720 kit comes out?
2. For the ROAR Nats, will the Team be driving out-of-the-box 720s? If not, what will be different?
3. When do you think a 720 team kit will be released?
4. What two specific component changes resulted in the biggest performance gain for the 720? Could you elaborate a bit on the before and after technical aspects of these changes?

Thank you!

stupid questions!

why you need option parts? the car rans out of the box like the others too. no 720, 710, RRR, MTX, G4S need *blink* *blink* parts.
are you a racing with that car or do you put it in a showcase?

Well, asking for required optionals isn't that bad.. the 710 is hard to control without the optional front diff.


I think a lot of drivetrain optionals (the allow pulleys etc) will fit on the 720. That is nice, because that also helps acceleration. The optional engine mount also fits. The X-brace in the middle is probably different and the bearing holder for the mid-shaft is also different i think.
What about the front stabi holders? I also think the beaarings are the same size, so the ceramic bearings will fit too...
What about the CVD's... since the front diff is the same as the 710, and the steering blocks are the same i'm assuming that they will fit in the front...

Those to parts will be available in allow i gues. Since it's an option that lots of drivers use...
I don't see any reason why there would be more optional parts needed... for racers this is about it..


if i sum this all up, the 720 is just a very good evolution on the 710, this car will rock!

Driving a front diff. is verry populair in Holland but even when you will cross the border to Belgium the're the drive most off the time with one-way.

So i think the diff. is not for everybody a good thing....

They should all come to Holland

CVD's fit front and rear.
X-brace is the same
Middle bearing block is the same
Front stabi holders are the same
Pulleys are the same except the 2 sp outer is now a 21. and the rear diff is 47
Bearings are all the same

Goood!

About the diff, this means the center pulley (where the brake is attached) has a different size?
And default an overdrive, nice!

1. Not at the moment. Almost every single 710 upgrade fits the 720
2. We took all the optionals we had in our 710 and installed in the 720.
3.720 Team Kit? 720 will be in the street early July
4. that's too long to answer now I got to try to finish my stuff for the Nats

no, the center pulley is the same. So no overdrive (well, 0.5mm split will give 1:1)
