Before I switched to the Xceed lipo pack I used a long wire (about 5cm or 2 inches to connect the top cell to the rest of the pack and laid it in the recess between the cells.
make sure u use superglue to hold each cells before u solder... i use a thin piece of copper to cennect between each cells...

Once the top brackets are off, take the front belt of the diff/oneway pulley. Just pull the belt to the side and rotate the diff/oneway. Then lift up the diff/oneway and rotate the excenters and set the desired position. Make sure both sides are in the same hole (I put some white paint on the excenters so they are easily visible throught the holes in the bulkhead).

Then put the belt back on (again rotate the diff while pulling the belt back on). reinstall the top brackets and you're done.

Default WA 2009 state tiltles

like to let you guys know, the 720 was on its game this weekend. after trading blows with Xray driver John Moyle (aka GRUB) the 720 TQed, set new lap record at 15.9 sec. first tourer ever in the 15 sec bracket. and came home with the win , after John had major problems with his car, the officials, and first corner carnage. Thanks to DJ for his help with pipe , header and clutch settings, was just a bullet everywhere, thanks, DJ
just a note as well, the 966 also set the new lap record, and first 8th scale int he 14's. TQ but had servo issues with 3 or 4 mins to go . was going to be a thrilling race till the car became so hard to steer, then servo then locked up. so a great weekend for myself , and Serpent, and novarossi engines.
