You must have not tightened it enough, use a known good 2.5mm allen wrench and torque it down, we have never experience engine mount moving or screws loosening as long as it is tight enough.

I have a question for all you 720 owners! I just bought a used but in good condition LCG chassis for my 720. Mine is the 08' version with the black plated chassis. Does the LCG chassis makes a big difference?? If you have the LCG what would you say was the most noticeable change when driving your 720? I'd like to hear any kind of experience with this Lower Certer of Gravity chassis!!!

Thanks!!!!

i have a 09 with this plate, same as the 08 other then the milling and more holes.... lower CG and a lighter car...cant go wrong.

from the web site

optional chassis plate which has been heavily milled on the topside to enable the whole car to sit lower, allowing for a lower centre of gravity while, through the addition of extra holes, the chassis plate is now extremely light. This chassis will be perfect for those racers looking for that extra cornering advantage in higher grip conditions and to allow your chassis to be made stiffer, the front of the chassis has space to mount the optional carbon stiffener plate, which will be sold separately.

Oh the LCG def. feels a lot lighter!
I will get started on the chassis swap! I can't wait to try it at the track.



Thanks!
