I will bring COOKIES to the 1/8 Scale Nat's.

Didn't think about the oneway. I will check that also. I was also thinking about gears. I'm running 61/17, 56/23. Is that putting the mesh on a angle since there isn't an equal difference.

honestly, ther isn't much diff from the 06 720 to the 08 720... u get front one way diff, cvd front, diff lower deck (but not much), delrin pivot ball nuts, single piece engine mount and alu x brace... the rest pretty much the same... u can easily buy LCG lower deck, LCG single piece engine mount, smaller fly wheel, SPP CVD, front one way, SPP alu x brace, SPP delrin pivot ball nuts, n the rest as upgrade for a 720-06 n it end up better speced than the 720-08... unless ur 720-06 is pretty worn out...

I tested them back at the 2007 Winternats. They were awesome. I ran the same pinions and spurs for the entire event. Quals and mains. I liked them a lot. I do not have them on my car at the moment. I still need to put them on, I just got them a couple of weeks ago and have not run sicne then.

The first one is a blade bar and depends on the blades used. the other is the 2.5mm. I prefer to use the 2.3 optional and use the inner holes on the arms. I am able to use this bar on all tracks.

Are there optional blades for the first one ? The stock blades do seem to be a bit rigid.

I think so, but I have never used them. I think serpent has a standard and a soft blade. Maybe you can search their site.

Default Xceed Lipo pack & regulator

Hi everyone,

I just go an Xceed Rx pack and regulator and I was wondering where you install the regulator on the 720.

Also how long can the pack last, will it last for a day of racing or should I charge it before my main.

Thanks for your help

I believe these are the soft blades.

Anti-roll bar blade RR soft (2) (#903237)
