720 here in our area will have their first debut club race tomorrow, we will see how well it will do.

You may have to check your fitment again, I did mine to the book and I didn't need to change anything. Are you worried about each arm being able to fall or when both arms are joined by the hub carrier. If it is with both arms joined then check you do not have to much tension on the pivot balls.

Hit the track today in anger for the first time with the 720 and I have to say the car is awesome. I ran the recommended setting from the setup sheet and I had heaps of grip whilst others where sliding. I was easily faster at that track (not my usual track) but the funny thing was it seemed as if i was going slower. I suppose this is because it was so easy to drive, I could run any line I choose and did not have to fight the car at all.

I may need to go to harder rear shore as the split goes the wrong way after about 10mins but I could still put it where I liked. I got a lighter diff oil that I was going to try but found I didn't need it at all.

I'm really happy now to have made the switch from my RRR, despite the fact I had to spend $$$ to do it.

The only changes I have from the kit are CVD's F/R and race pads.

Yes gear diff with the kit oil. I did get lighter oil for the rear but didn't need it. On a high traction track I would probably go to 60000 or 70000 in the front. The purists will say go with a oneway but there's no need to follow what someone else does as we all drive differently.

it's the lower arm.. it already gets stuck on the (hinge?)-pin without any mounting on the car...
I'm sure this will not wear of with on run

Any ideas on making the ball/set screws (part#1650) moving freely on the ball joint (1660)?
I know they wear but i want the car to be good in the first run...

OK so you are aware that the the hinge pin is supposed to be a snug fit in the arms. When you mount the pin at either end that's where it pivots from.

Tighten them until there is no movement then back it out just a touch.

if your runnin' on a short track i would say use a gear diff with heavy gear diff oil on the front and one step less on the rear and use a hard spring on a smooth hightraction track.

It's the front lower arm, the hinge pin is set with a screw.. So if the arm binds to the hinge pin, there isn't any movement

The ball is so tight in the joint that it does not move freely... nothing to do with tightening and so on...
