Thank you very much for the answers, and here is one more.
-Are the rear and side belt tensioners redesigned? If the belts are same and the pulleys get smaller, I think the belts get even looser. In 710 I have some difficulties with the tension of the side belt.

The distance between the pulleys is slightly different to compensate for the changed pulleys. The side belt tension problems you describe are most likely using a 21t side pulley. For the 720 that is the standard pulley so we designed the belt tension around that.

For the 710 look here: http://www.mytsn.com/publ/publ.asp?pid=10984

Thanks again, I have read this article just after you have write it I'm very happy with the 21t mid-side pulley, it gives me a little faster front end responce and my tyres wears equaly. This is very important for me cause the characteristics of the car changes very little during the race. Perhaps I don't need such an option in 720...

Hi GUys::

I just received the body painted yesterday, and like he said the, headlights are painted, no sticker. Because I am a ofical serpent dealer, I think I will only use the body for promotional purpose only.

Oh yeah...I knew it is painted, it is a compliment to his "PHAT" paint job...no matter what, those bodies are insane good looking.........GO SERPENT.

About someone/site already got the S720....please, I think alll of us here already know (that explain no one here care about talking)....if there are only certain TEAM DRIVER has it for the upcoming national, how would this SHOP can have the car that NO ONE (beside the few top Serpent driver) have and ready to deliver...? That is just not right...at least, called it out for "PRE-ORDER"....

Beside, $430....? that just plain wrong...making ppl think SERPENT is going to jack up the price for new car, which I really doubt S720 is close to $80 more expensive then the released S710 like 2.5 years ago...

No worries mate.
There are NO kits out of the door yet.

Like rookie said, there is no way a site or store can have kits available unless they are taking preorders, but they should advice clients of that. I am making a list of my regular clients who wants 720s, but because I don't have the final price I haven't posted in my website in order to be responsible.

Right now the preliminary info about price is that it will be like the 710.

With the front diff quite stiff are you running softer tires up front?

I hope you are right about the pricing for the 720.

We do try that at various tracks. Sometimes it works and that makes tire wear very equal as well. But I must say it is still early days on setup. We'll know much more after the car has run the Heemstede GP and the Nats.
