Julius, hope to see you in Hong Koing

Unfortunately the KLM 777 doesn't fly to HKG.....
I guess we'll need to catch up in Manila again!

I think you should look at the shiny 720/08 box and reconsider

Honestly its all about driving/mechanical skill not the car (between these kind of brands).

yes sir, I will be trained for that!!!

questions on 720, Are you using the mid oneway anymore.
I will be racing on a high grip track ( traction roll problem). Layout mix with 2 x Long straight and few tight u turns. Should I try it? I only have time for 1 practice before I go racing so any help would be good.

Hi Dan

It's your decision of course and it's all up to you. Remember though that the 720 is a very good handling car. Any of those top cars out there can handle and will have a good showing at a big race, all dependant on how many quality drivers they pay for to race.

Keep in mind the maintenance of the car and the parts cost. For instance if you bend a CVD (which I haven't on mine by the way after many crashes ), it may cost you $30 to $40 each and I've seen a couple of them bend with minor accident despite the advertised strength. Just to name an example.

Anyway, like I said it's up to you and it's all about enjoying the hobby. Good luck and I hope you stay with the snake .

Hi

I have a 3/4 built 720, and the 2 speed shaft just seems to float backwards and forwards. Maybe i have missed something

Thanks
