Double check the track width & you need to check your radio settings they should not fall off

Didn't had any problems in the canteen, full throttle is no problemo.

I mean if you lighten your rear diff too much(10.000cst) make sure you don't have fast corners(70+) at your track, otherwise you loose all stability.
Right ...

So is there a transponser mount and holder set for the 720 ? I don't think the one for 960 fits. I could buy the transponder holder, #1666 but don't want to drill two additional holes on the upper deck. If I mount the transponder on the front then I do need the extention.

#1666 comes with the front servo mount which has 2 special holes for the transponder mount, go to my TSN and take a look, who says you need to drill holes? by the way the #1666 just came in (it is now in stock in the store)

1666 is a 960 part and will not fit on the 720 without modification.

Why bother with an additional transponder mount if you can install the transponder on the noseplate 803146? I don't get it.

1. The rear of the car is loose - allot of the 720 drivers experienced the same problem - track only has hairpin bends - everyone said the same thing, the back doesn't follow the front. But still the car was easier to drive then the 710.

2. The rear lower wishbone - with two pivot balls is very weak - if you toutch the rear side of the car against the track piping - it pushes the rear pivot balls further in - I started with 3 toe in at rear and the slightest toutch at the rear and I was running 3 toe out. I wanted to try thread tape over the pivot balls but i did not get a chance too.

But, just so that all of you know, the winner at the Soth African Nationals in Durban this weekend was a Serpent 720.

Really not sure why the back of this car is so loose.... any ideas? I figure its the diff oils - the standard 50000 F and 30000 R doesn't work on a hairpin track. Thinking more like 100000 in the front and 10000 or 20000 in the rear.

Acid
We've noticed in high temps the fit of the pivot balls could be tighter. we'll adress this as soon as possible. For the moment thread tape (teflon plumbers tape) should be a fix.

I agree with your idea to run harder front and softer rear oil. I'd suggest about 80k front (100k might take away too much steering) and 20k rear. Running front and rear shocks in the lowest tower holes will improve handling as well.
