i would loosen the brake pulley a bit and move it over so the rear belt runs more on the rear diff pulley.

howdy guys, well i finished building my new 720, rather than not being able to get a new 09 kit for the states, i grabbed the last 08 kit in AU. i had my first run with the car last night. all i can say is HELL YEAH. this car rocks.
TQ and a very solid race win, the fastest i have ever been, this is the car for me. i cant say enough about it, but i guess most have one here and already know. i did use the brass insert up front, and the spool. didnt understeer one ounce, and a heap of rear grip, just perfect. i hope for many more good things with this car in the future, its by far the best car i have ever driven.

I believe the Xceed is the only one available that is direct drop in. As I mentioned in the other thread, it will be sufficient to run an entire hour worth of racing no problem.

KO, Futaba, Airtronics, and JR are all good. For steering look for a speed of about .10 with 100-160 oz/in of torque. Throttle you can use a standard with high torque, I'll say at least 80 oz/in. My .02 cents
