Thanks for your help
You can install the regulator in between the fuel tank and the pipe under the radio tray.

If fully charged, the 1100 mAh will run one hour and forty five minutes (continues) in your 720 (based on 2 JR Z9100S digital servos)

Default WC update

hi guys, just wondering if the std transmission on the 720 06 can be updated with the WC clutch bell pinions and spurs, or do the spur housings need to be updated as well, or any clutch parts. thanks.

Default Belt Position

On my 720, the rear belt keeps riding the edge of the gear. Should I move the small gear a little? If I do, the belt seems to rub the edge of the small gear lip a little.

It should not matter but yes, you can move the small gear on the main shaft a little. With some trial and error you should be able to get them aligned.

double check the bearings eccenter holders ... both sides have to be the same.

One of the most common mistakes with assembly of the car is that the side pulleys are swapped front-to-rear. Double check these or when you see that the car is slowish when everything else is right on it ... then check these side gears.

I am not sure at the momoent. When I build the shocks I just make sure they are long enough that they do not bind and extend with the arm all they way through the droop action. Then I make sure they are equal and have similar rebound. Hope I explained myself OK.
