If you are thinking of running this on your 710. Don't the internal ratio is different.
For the 710 Chris's gearing would be 17/22 60/55. You'll have exactly the same ratio that way.

Rafael, great job wrenching for Chris and making those fast pit stops! You can relax now and catch some much needed sleep on the red-eye back to Miami!!!!

Thanks, I'll give this a try until I get the 720. We have a covered track almost the same size as the one at Crystal Park and we're going to use their layout.

We had a couple drivers who entered the Nats, so it should be fun.

Thanks again.

Julius, what engine did you run on MACH? The standard Mega ZX12 or the Massimo Fantini tuned version part 221001? And what ratios did you have on your gears? I checked your setups, but no new setup published since 2005

Congrats to Serpent team in USA and Europe. Looking forward for more victories!!!

I was running 59mmR and 58mmF with 17/22-60/55 and I think it worked the best with the MegaPicco motor. With any other motor, I needed to use 61/56 spurs on the same tires.

No, the part where he said "Dutch Championships" - he means the EFRA GP, yesterday's race was not a Dutch Championship ... it was held in Holland but its the European GP, an event sanctioned by EFRA.

Its the standard Mega ZX ... his setup will be there when the new 720 page on myTSN is up.

And the 720 were box-stock kits ... not WCE, not modified and certainly hasn't got lots of letters behind the name.

There will always be skeptics but then again .. OK, there's a small mod or two in there.

Default Longer Servo Lever

I've heard a lot of 710 options will make it to the 720. I wonder if this includes the longer servo lever? My guess is the default 720 will drive better out of the box than the 710, with a slight understeer but I wonder what the feeling was for the 720 drivers. Would the longer servo lever be needed or was the default good enough?
