The 720 is just a well made and the best new car in the market

Congrats to Team Serpent. Awesome job with the new 720.

Thanks for the help with the Mega engines and Jaco tires. Both worked awesome.

It was nice seeing all you guys(Paolo,Gianni,Rafael,Scotty,Roniel,and Max) here in Cali. Hope to see you guys again.

Chris

Well guys the weekend went well and the goal was met. The 720 is awesome and does not have a slight understeer problem. If anything it has more steering than the 710 at its best day. I ran the car for two days before Tosolini got to the track working on setups and learning the car and I have to say that it is very easy to work on and drives very good. Tosolini and Gray ran a solid front axle on the car for consistency and drivability. With the solid axle we were getting .3 mm of wear with 45shore .5mm with 42shore and .6mm with 40shore every 10 minutes. The car maintained its 1mm split the whole race and was super easy to drive. Our Mega Picco engines were allowing us to run 5:30 per tank and we were only a few tenths off the pace of Swuager who was extremely fast but had to pit more often. The one hour finals are about strategy and ours was pretty good. The whole Serpent team was working together in an efficient manner allowing us to find some good strategies and setups. At the end the two cars the ran one set of tires only finished ahead. Both Tosolini 1st (Serpent 720) and Ishitani 2nd(Mugen) 1 set of tires.

P.S. Tosolini won the Nationals with the new Spektrum Pro series

Hey guys I want to thank all the guys from the Cali Area for the great hospitality they showed us at team serpent and me by name. Leo ,Sam. Chris V, Bryan, Jeffery Lynn, Garen, Team Molzer(Cool Cats), Ken from Skyline.

I want to thank Mark Harrison for helping me with the pitting of the car he is fast. We worked as a team and acheived a victory for the team.

For those of you interested the cars are awesome. 100% better than the 710 and the fit and finish of the car is amazing. When the car comes out in 2 weeks we will have the Tosolilni Solid axle setup available online at mytsn.com. I also have an awesome one way setup that would be very good for smooth tracks. When I have my kit I will focus on getting some better setups..
