Default Side belt touching the manifold

I just finish building my 720'08 and notice that the side belt is touching the manifold, what can be done to prevent this from happening?

Thanks,

I dont know about the others.. basically i shave the part of the manifold that touches the side belt using a rotary tool.

Just picked up some nice servos for my 720. I bought 2 of the KO Propo PDS-2413 ICS Low Profile servos from AMain. They look nice, and the wire isn't too long like the HiTecs. Looks like they will work good for my car.

This orange aluminum differential axle you speak of is probably the older Ball Differential. It used an aluminum ring with a plastic insert to adjust its tension on the fly. Im not too sure where you can get this differential still, but im sure someone here knows where you can get one. It's a ball differential though, if youre still interested in it. The newer gear differential has proven to be more consistent and will give better performance.

That's the the aluminium adjuster for the ball diffs used for the 710.

Well, the 710 rear diff is different size to the 720 one but the front one is the same so they are interchangeable.
