Yo Mike, go with the 2630 "Fat Boy" pipe. That seems to give the best results.

Default Issues

Just got a 720 and to say i'm dissapointed is an understatement.

The organisation of the parts in the bags crazy, all over the place, there are screws missing (for the brass bit in the chassis)
Nothing to bad, easily fixed.

However, main issue i'm having at the moment is with the clutch. I've had it set up as per instructions, measured perfectly with feeler guages and vernier calipers, but i just can't get the clutch to engage at a lowish rpm, which is not good while i'm trying to run the motor in.
I've loosend the clutch as much as possible to get it to engage earlier, but it doesn't seem to make a difference.
I have not had this trouble with my Kyosho or Mugen clutch.

Has anybody got any ideas what i could have missed or what i'm doing wrong?

And just to top off my annoyance, the manifold spring (the serpent one that holds it to the car) just broke, no idea why, just trying to run the motor in

i have already broken the pipe retainer spring, no big deal, i had a spare few.
screws also missing from the brass insert, had many already, no biggie.
i agree parts are all over the place, with screws and opening bags all the time to use just a few things , then place an opened bag on the table for a while. can be better organised for sure, but let me say , the dissapointment will be short lived once it hits the track
try backing off the clutch spring as much as you can abd use a 0.3 clutch gap for run in. im sure it will engage ok like this. i had no issues with the clutch. but do look at getting the WC trans asap. much better.

the WC only has wider spurs and pinions it's not a must have. as far as the kit it goes together rather well.

good job on the build here are just a few changes you m
need to make. the side belt rides under the bearing by the pipe, and you might want to angle the inlet from the carb towards the sur gears so that your fuel tubing will go around your airfilter
