I'd rather have a cheap plastic bumper plate break than bend my nice shiney chassis.

From the pictures the track appears to be very open and flowing. The one way is probably faster

The Team has been testing several things up front, geared diff, ball diff, solid axle and front one-way. The front gear diff made the car very easy to drive however on this track with the current conditions the stop watch tells them they are faster with the one ways at this time. It really is nice to have all those options available, to choose from.

Bearings are all the same

We have some issues with the center belt rubbing the manifold at 710. So is that mean we still have the same problem in 720?

I don't understand why serpent did this preview thing. They should just launch the car for their customers.
If you ever own a 710 before, trust me you would rather wait for another 3 months or more then getting a 710 right now.

remember that the 710 was a completely new design from the 705 (previous car).
now, this new 720 is a refined 710... it can only be better
besides, people are already saying a bunch of good things about the car.

Yeah, the car looks really good! I saw Paolo's car Saturday and it was unbelievably quick and I think that was their first day there.

Scotty's car got nailed really hard and it didn't break so the car seems to be a lot stronger than the 710.

I've never heard of anyone having this problem.
