I'm definitely going to keep both of my RRR for quite some time. It would be nice to add a 720 to the line-up, as it seems everyone that had/has a RRR and/or MTX-4 seems to like it. I'm sure it's a good car. I haven't seen a 720 out here yet (not even in the hobby store), so I'm anxious to see how it does on our track.

Mugen and Kyosho have a strong presence out here. Most of the guys that had 710s switched to Mugen and most of the new guys show up with a Mugen. I think it will be a while before we see a snake slither it's way up to the starting line.

rskoncepts/RoyU: You guys know of anyone that is running a 720???

Default Walter, do you need bodies?

Hey Walter you in there? I was just thinking, I have a couple clear bodies laying around. Do you want me to run them out to you so that you can paint them your colors for the weekend?

Paulo says the wheels are 1mm offset, and Doug says they are zero offset.

Which is correct?

Are you sure Paolo said 1mm offset? I think Doug is correct.

Paolo is right.....The correct answer is 1mm offset for the Serpent Jaco wheels.
