I find the 0 degree blocks easier to drive. Hope this helps...

Not exactly.. I'll put it this way: The standard and the option blocks gives you the same amount of steering and the only difference is, when you throw deep into a corner entry, the 0/1 degree blocks grips better and gives you a smooth feeling. Whereas the standard blocks push the tyres outward if corner entry line is missed or slightly out and requires quick fingers to do a little correction. The 0/1 degree blocks is friendlier to drive. When this setup is properly tune, to find more steering or reduce steering, you may go to advance setup by touching the caster and front roll center settings.

Cheers,
Raymond Chan

Just got my 720 08 kit. The front diff gets 50 000 oil and rear gets 30 000 oil with the kit. My car kept pushing going into the corner so I replaced the 50 000 in the front diff with 30 000 oil.

1)My question is, what happens to the handling of the car if I go even thinner with the front oil? (if I go to thin).

2)What effect will it have when the rear diff oil goes to high or to low?

3)The 08 kit comes with a brass insert in the chassis plate. I know that it adds weight to the front of the car, and therefore creates more down pressure on the front wheels. Will this insert make the car turn in better or push during turn in? What effect will it have on corner exit?

4) I bought the CF insert as well. What will happen to the handling if I use the CF insert? (guess it relates back to question 3)

Hi, I am using the Xceed LiPo battery for the 720, I do have a picture this was when I was using the VRX LiPo Battery, and you can see how I mounted the Regulator in a plastic L shape piece.

Today I change the same L shape Plastic to Aluminum because the two small holes that I used so I could attach this to the Carbon top plate (803153) crack with the car vibration.

What I do is when I mount the L shape aluminum piece to the Carbone top plate (803153) in the side where the outside belt is, then the cable that goes in to the receiver goes through the back of the fuel tank. The cable that attaches to the battery goes in top of the 803153, because I do not use any switch I connect direct the two cables.

I hope this can help, I now my English is not that good.

Typer, http://3hobby.net/modules.php?name=C...howpage&pid=61

This was on my 710 but I'm going to do the same thing on my 720 with the Xceed LiPo battery and regulator.

There is an article here http://3hobby.net/modules.php?name=C...howpage&pid=84

Which pretty much changes your 720 into an 08 version.

Thanks for the setup but where did you get the Atlas shell from?

Also, which clutch shoe and spring did you use? What gap and end-play?

Thanks!

DJ,

I saw you used a Blitz Altis 2.3 body during the winternats, I'm also using this body on my Serpent 720! In your winternats setup sheet I can't find the body position.
What do you consider to be the biggest differences between this body and the Stratus 3.1?
