After running a 5 port ZX12 all week in outlaw and a 3 port ZX12 in the semi and final, I would have to say they are plenty fast, reliable, and get good fuel mileage.

I think the zx12 is like a real race engine you'll have to replace it after a race so only factory teams will actually get good results with it. (or if you keep replacing the conrod after 1 litre or something.)

Serpent USA was kind enough to supply me with ZX12's for my OFNA sedan and I was more than happy with the power.

Looking at the pictures of some of the team driver I noticed they insalled the transponder on a small carbon plate on the front right side. Just wondering if that's the transponder munt which will be included in the kit for the USA spec.

You should probably check with who ever is the distributor for your area. The U.S. is added this to their kits for the easy use/convience for their clients, at their own expence.(I think, do not quote me)

Quite a lot of my friend over from HK already pre-ordered their 720...and their local distributor told them those pre-ordred 720 will also be equipped front gear diff and front 1-way/locked solid optional diff just like the US - spec for the 1st batch promotion....however, that is only at HK, don't know other Asia area like Japan, Thailand or others are the same.

What the heck are you doing staying til at least 1:30 in the morning???? 720 pricing information will be sent out today, I promise!!!!!
Dough,
When you guys said the 720 will be out by 1st week of July does it mean the hobby shops will have it by 1st week of July or hobby shops still have to wait till it got shipped to them which might be 1 more week...you know from East coast to West coast usually takes a week.
