Yes, DJ ... tell us.

I think it's really hard to break the shocktower part on the 720 because it's protected by the bodymount piece.
This will take all the impact now and is flexibel and so doesn't break.

@ aaalp

Do you mean the 2 poles that stick out of the back?

That's meant to keep the body from getting under the tires during refueling and racing.
On the 720 there are special holes made for it.
But on the 710 it makes the shocktower even more funerable to rear impacts.

Do like what dj did to the body poles, placing them even more forward, will do that on my car too.
I am desiging a new part to mount the body on, it's lower and more forward.

Thumbs up Shock tower

I broke one of shock towers over last weekend at Great lake challenge. My car sided backwards against board and broke tower and rear plastic piece. It was hard hit so canít complain. For me it was first weekend with car so I was pretty happy how it worked out of the box.

Default Building the car...

So.. i'm a little late with getting the car and building it.. but i didn't have any time yet...

Now, i started buidling and i'm amazed by how the fitting is.. the front arms are a little tight.. nothing a arm reamer would not fix.. for the rest.. WOW!
I realy like the way the upper front arm and lower rear arm are fittet, no small screw to secure the pin, very good!

Do yourself a favour and don't take the reamer anywhere near those car parts.

For those of you who have the ability to race at the GLC track or a track very similar to that type of traction will do well with this set-up. In my opinion Scotty's car was one of the fastest if not one of the best along with DJ's car. Working on his car I found the car to have lots of steering which is the reason for most of the traction rol problems. Here is what I did to make Scotty's car hook-up. The only options we used was the center aluminum cross brace and the front aluminum layshaft spindle. Here is the setup for high bite tracks with a one way..
Front
Front Droop 0
Shocks 50w 3 hole inner most hole
Purple springs
Middle roll center position upper arm
Swaybar 90deg
oneway
long ackerman
Rear
40k diff oil
shocks 50w 3 hole inner most hole
Purple springs
Sway bar 3mm in on the bar
droop 7
upper link in the lower hole


good luck with the 720
