Thanks!
Just make sure to install the front brass insert to the front section of the chassis when running the LCG chassis, this brass plate provides more weight to the front of the car, helping to remove snap oversteer and allowing the car to corner faster and smoother. In addition to the improved cornering speeds the added weight mounted in the chassis helps prevent grip roll on high traction surfaces, here to see a picture: http://kamikazetoysandhobbies.com/pr...prod=SER803207

I have question for any one that runs a 720. Front tire wear is very odd like if someone turned a tire truer on and left a in side feather edge. Is this roll center problem, tire wear is flat.

I had the same problem. Try adding more caster or more camber. The car was weird like that.

Caster slid back -2 camber, same results. Changed roll center to lower, upper position better results. Makes me wonder if this was the reason they developed the 1 degree up rights? To give more or less roll. Thank you Quietstrom76.

Hey guys, if anyone is interested in a carbon transponder mount. I am selling mine along with the whole radio tray in eBay. Its at $1.99 at the moment and ends in about an hour. Search serpent 720 if interested.

The carbon mount alone is about $30 in http://www.serpentamerica.com/shop/p...3&cat=0&page=1

I loved my 720, especially after all the hop ups but the 733 just has more potential.
