no loosen it a bit. As for diff leakage you my have over tightened the four screws and crushed the o-ring.

L23 are for the 720 & L27 is for the rear of the 960. I use L27 in the rear of the 720 sometimes as well.

Default 1 or 0 Degree Steering Block

Hi, I have at the moment install in my 720 the steering block 1degr L+R 803212, our club is using a Parking Loot track, low to Med traction, very technical, what will be the difference of using the 1 degree or the 0 degree Steering Block.

Thanks

RCPANAMA

The l stands for length and 23 and 27 stand for the lenght in mm.
So pretty simple to remember because you never use longer springs in the front then the rear.

does anyone know what are the effects of different length fuel lines? like the length of the line from the pipe to the tank? the tank to the carb? i know run time increases with longer lines do to there being more fuel on board, but any other effects? what about short lines? when running my fuel lines like the manual says, they'll be very short from what i'm used to seeing. i was always told to coil up the line from the pipe to the tank.

the way you say that you have it from pipe to tank is fine, as for tank to carb dont go straight back angle it around the filter
