I've just checked 720 manual and it explains everything clearly.. There is something different about centax. That 0.5 mm. shim placed in between engine and flywheel cone is ommited And manual says "use flywheel cone that comes with your engine" . Moreover, gives 1.5mm for spring cup nut tension... Why is that so? Is it going to be a benefit if I install my 710's centax that way???

If you use a mega zx12, this is the best way for both cars. For other engines, I am not sure.

So the possibility of getting it before the July 15 is slim to none? I hope not but I will wait if so.

I don't know. To be honest, the information came from a shop very close to the serpent USA.

They are not just as competitive as we are here in the States.
Check this site out listed below and when you consider the front diff, one way, RCC shocks, and etc. this kit is very fairly priced. Difference is you don't have to purchase the kit and then spend the money on the upgrades which would make the total outlay almost $100.00 more than the kit price.

You do get alot for the $$$'s, but still you will need front universals, exhaust, engine & receiver pack before you hit the track.

You shouldn't have to spend that. If you own universals from the 710, you can use that but otherwise you need the usual tyres, exhaust, engine, shell, Tx, Rx. Hey ... nobody said this kit is a QD RTR.

Does any company make hardened aluminium or steel pinions for the 710/720.
