The 710 arms have the same wheel base, but track width is narrower, easy fixed by winding out the pillow ball. The lower shock mounting position is also about 2 to 3mm closer to the car centre. Handy to keep some 710 arms as a fine tuning option.

Someone asked a question about camber rise a page or so back. I am not too sure about the correct answer but I think it would be useful to have more camber rise on a slippery bumpy track or if you are looking for more rear grip on mid corner to exit. Please someone who knows for sure feel free to correct or expand.

You can see in this picture how I did the instalation I have in the 720 a 1,oo VXR LiPo, you have to cut the size of the battery holder, you will not be able to install the holder from behain of the chassis, only from the top, but that is no sacrfice for what you get, the Voltage Regulator yoy have to install it on the size of the car with a plstic holder.

This is the same picture I included before but you could see better the way is mounted, I also put in from of the battery a piece of foam 8Marine Foam) so the battery will be tide when is install in the chassis. The battery and the foam has booth a piece of double size tape to help the battery been always in the same place.

Hope this will help

Default Diff/One way position

What is the difference in handling when you set the front diff/one way on the high or low position? Same for the rear diff...

If you mean what will happen if you install the excenters the other way round?
In the front you will get problems with the diff rubbing the servo saver.
In the rear it is installed in the lowest position, which is best for CG. I'd see no gain in bringing it up....

Where did you install the servo regulator ? On the left side between the fuel tank and the side belt ?

Thanks... appreciate the clarification.

But guys, I am still having the same problem. The ass is loose. Eveytime I come onto the power mid corner and corner exit, and if i come on too quickly, the ass comes out. Rear RC is at the lowest, springs are red, rear downstop is set to 5, camber is 3 with camber rise is 5.

Not sure what i am doing wrong here

No. The excenters have a thick part and a thin part that depending on which side you put the excenter on, will make the diff sit in a higher or lower position. It shouldn't move the diff forward or backward, only up or down. For example, if you get traction roll, should you raise the front?

I think the opposite is true (at least from tyre-wear viewpoint), because on very slipery track you can go with less camber and have a rear tyre worn slightly conical to iniside. On really high grip tracks with fast sweepers usually you should adjust a lot of static camber and the rear outer tyre still has smaller outer diameter (conical to outside). In this case adjusting more camber-gain (shorter link) is very useful.

With other way round I meant changing left and right, causing what you suggested. The front is already "Up". and the rear "down". They need to be installed that way to create clearance to the other parts.

If you have big problems getting the tires to wear correctly it is more often a problem with too soft rims or excessive slop in the suspension.
Although it is true in higher grip you will need more static camber.

If the short link works is something to test at your track, as it can change from track to track. In general, expect more steering, and at some tracks better tractin out of corners (especially hairpins).

But it can make the car unpredictable and unstable under braking.

It's an easy change though. I have two sets of arms and leave the inner screw in place when I switch to the outer position. That way the change is a two minute job.
