Not sure what I can say, but there will some nice additions for the 09' 720. It should be cool. Just a note. I ran the new CVD's at the Sedan Nationals at the Fort and gave them a really good test. They are awesome. Again I will say, they are awesome.

Its probably hard to say what else can be updated... We'll probably see the new CVDs in it, new updated rear end, lightweight shafts, the WC pinion/spur system. I have noticed that each year edition basically just sums up every upgrade that has come out in the year. We will wait and see.

Exclamation Xceed Lipo's

I just want to give my 2 cents because this batteries are very dangerous when mist handle, improper use or improper charging may cause explosion or fire. I'm currently using the same batteries for my 720 and loving it. No this batteries can't be balance cause it come with only one connector for both cells! Lipo batteries that need balancing come with 2 different connector one of those is use to charge each cell or ballance and the other for dicharge. Balanced lipo's typically provide higher total voltage and it is not needed for this car since we are using a regulator for 6.2 volt and the batteries provide 7.4 volt.

PLEASE REAR AND UNDERSTAND THE INTRUCTION THAT COME WITH YOU CHARGER AND YOUR BATTERIES AND IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER TO CHARGE THAT BATTERIES AFTER EACH USE !!!

Thanks guys,

I ended up running my stock set-up that I have posted here lately, with 37 front and 40 rears (Twister Tires). Car was on rails all weekend. Motor and clutch were screaming also.
