Thanks
There should be an aluminum spacer in between the right side bearing in the bulkhead and the 2 speed spur gear.

Thank you... i just pulled it out of the box and had a looksy. Not as bad as i thought it was, does seem to spin free for a while and then tighten up briefly. Maybe it frees up after track time....

I can't remember why i never finished it now

Would a VXR racing LiPo cell fit under the tank?

I would like to use the pack in my 720 and my nt1

My best guess is that is is close to a AAA battery. Possibly slightly less thick than the dia of a AAA.

Had an amazing testing with 720 on the weekend after 10 months driving other brand . The lap time was as quick as my other car that I been driving / testing for months. It has the perfect amount of steering I want. The LCG and brass weight really makes some diff.
