OK, toss one over here ... just tell you friend you lost one.

The springs fit but you'll need the front ones on the rear I think ... so you need two sets of fronts. Julius or Rene will correct me of course.

I will Slow. The shocks are the same front and rear (both "fronts") but the springs are still different. So you can use your old spring sets you might have from your 710.

No, just interested in how the thing goes together from an engineering standpoint.

You have not put that MTX4 on ebay yet...? There are quite a lot of them over EBAY now because they are running 720...............and how many more 1st/2nd spur gear, side belt that you want to break and cost you the win? Serpent is your answer man..........

If you need one, let me know.........

From my friend over HK........they DO NOT have the front 1-way came with the kit like the US spec 720....ANOTHER PLUS..........

Joe, EMAIL send with your B-main pictures.

Default Parts for 720

Is there an online store that will ship most of the 720's parts world wide?

Ok, here are some pictures, as promised. It's just the chassis; I don't have an engine and electronics installed yet. If someone wants more close up images of any details, just ask and I'll see what I can do...

Feel free to use these pictures for whatever you please, but if you post them to other forums, please host them on your own webspace (and maybe tell me where you used them...)

Right, I got it the wrong way round. Serpent's fault for not getting a special 3hobby kit to me first!

Is there any US Serpent rep that can give us a eta. My LHS is getting mine from Serpent USA and was just wondering how longer I have to wait.

I feel like I am 12 years old waiting for Christmas.
