I have the stock gearing 1st gear (59T/17T) and second (57T/23T) on my 720 and i would like to convert to the WC transmission. So all i need is a clutch bell and pinions/spurgears?
Also i noticed they dont make the same gearing for the second in WC. Would the closest to my stock be (56T/23T)???
Anyone knows if this will mesh? Anyone have a chart?

How u do it?
I basically use a new set of tires. Is that the purpose of the green
wheels? Wouldnt his way be inaccurate?
well, basically i set the ride height depending on tyre diameter and how long the mains is. the main purpose is to keep your car from bottoming at the later stage. each time i change tyres esp. with different diameter i set them again.

Hello all,
I would appreciate if you explained the difference in car handling between the plastic and the metallic X bracket.
Thanks in advance

I would think that the plastic "X" brace would let the chassis flex more and give you more steering. I have never always ran the alum. one. I have heard cutting the alum. one in half gives you alot more steering.

I use the aluminum brace and cut it in the middle. I think it gives the correct amount of flex and helps the car steer more, but stay stable. I also do not use the middle screw on the left graphite brace that the side belt tensioner is on. I cut that area away so the graphite does not touch the alum brace. Hope I explained myself well enough for people.

Why would you spend money on the aluminum x brace then cut it in the middle? should have just stayed with the plastic one, which will function the same.

They do not respond the same. Trust me when I tell you I have tried every way possible and the way I use it works best for me. I find that I am able to carry more corner speed with stability my way. The diagram that was posted with the graphite cut is not the way I use it. I tried that way and liked mine better. I cut the graphite at the upper part of the aluminum brace. It is still connected in the bottum and rear. Hope this helps.
