You're not planning on upgrading already, are you?

720 proved itself a winner again today taking out first and second of the final. I was lucky to finish first as I started with 57.5 fronts and ended with nothing left and tremendous understeer. My four lap lead was reduced to 1.5

Hey like I said earlier, the car can only get better and better with upgrades here and there and some playing with setups . Honestly, I don't have any of them yet as they are all new, but everything is availalble at the Skyline site.

I'm just playing Nigel. I heard that the 720 is already good to go out of the box.

You know as well as I do, that the RRR needs all the help it can get.

Rainer,

I think the time is right for you to jump of the RRR and get the 720. I'm sure you will find the same thing that myself and others are saying and that is the 720 is a class car with a very wide sweet spot.

Simon

I remember when the 710 came out,everyone as posting building tips,things to change,etc..and resulted in the great set up(and building) guide.I don't notice much of that happening here.Is that testimony to the build quality of the car?.....or is no one posting?....
