hi guys, yesterday Ozgur DERIN (TR) took Turkish Championship title with his 720. A small but important trick from his 720; rear body support plate is too much soft for Bursa (TR) Racepark since it's a fast track and he put a second body support onto the other to make it more solid. Before this modification, body was leaning to one side in a high speed turn. BTW, his 720 was like a slot car on the track

Thank you very much Asil, it's a realy good race. The rear body mount mod helps very much for rear end stabilty I think.

Thinking of buying a 720, could anyone advise of anything that would be good to buy as an optional to start off with.

Also any UK bods on this forum ... how much is this kit in the UK?

Nothing, honestly. The kit comes with ceramic centax thrust bearings, yellow clutch shoes and RCC shocks - all go-fast hop-ups from the 710 days.

If you have experience with the 710, you might like to have the long ackermann for the steering. It gives a similar "feel" in the 720.

The best hop up is CVDs. When you run dogbones, and you steer at full throttle, the engine bogs down.
