Main page and link is in English but the report is in French. No use to me, would be better if the report is in English as well.

We understand very well the concern of the language. It is a usual subject of discussion at RC Infos.

Here the position of the editor of RC Infos:

1. We publish the reports in their original language. A report written by a French author is published in French, a German article, in German etc. We unfortunately currently do not have the means of translating the articles in other languages.

2. The manufacturers can, if they wish it, to take the work of translation to their load and/or to support RC Infos while placing advertisements on the website, which could can give us the means of translating

3. The article of the 720 was required by the Swiss distributor of Serpent, which also provided the car for the test. His interest is that the readers of its market understand the article, and in Switzerland it is not English who dominates.

4. There is the possibility of translating the article into English, with translator like Altavista (http://babelfish.altavista.com/) or equivalent.

Sorry for those which are disappointed to not understand the text, but the +150 pictures are international and remain very interesting.

Yes it sure does. It will give more mid corner steering. You may want to run some expo (like 15%) on the steering to make the car a bit less nervous around center with the long saver arm.

Don't quite understand what you mean by "cut your body post with one hole left for your body clip..."

Maybe the mod DJ Apolaro did on his 710 here on this picture is also possible on 720 and that would help to avoid a sudden break of the rear shock tower? Any comments?

Hey DJ,

What's up? Come on, let us hear your comments on the 720. I heard you were going like a rocket on the GLC. I am sure lots of people would like to hear what you think about the car. Where shall we pay attention at the setup?
