It already comes with front adjustable anti-roll bar.

Thanks for responses ... 720 ordered as well as CVD's.

I now need some engine advice pleeeese.

Mega ZX-12 DSII
Mega MF-12 3P MASMO

The Masmo is a bit more expensive but cost not really a prob ... just want to know what would be the better motor. Once this decision is made I can get the specific one piece engine mount

Thanks

both are good.
DSII is a picco based motor and has more bottom end power. I preffer this one
MF-12 is a nova based motor and is also very good. Power is good with a slight more top speed, not a much bottom.

Hi,

I have got a 710 and next week I'll buy the new 720.
I'd like to know if the diff and shock oils are included in the kit and their viscosity.
I want to buy some other viscosities both for diffs and shocks.
I always used 30wt and 35wt oils for the shocks of my 710.
Can you suggest any shock and diff oil viscosities I should buy for the 720?

Thanks

I have been finding the 720 like to have a little heavier shock oil than the 710. But remember it depends on the track conditions(which are always subject to change).

Diff and Shock oil are included in the kit.
50K & 30K for diffs
35W for shocks

Buying different viscosities for your diff/s and shocks is not a bad idea and will be good for tuning option. I suggest trying out the ones that came with the kit first and then go from there depending on what you feel you need.

I don't think the ZX12 DSII is available yet (the .21 DSII is the one that is already available).

Here is a link to Maxy's post regarding the Maxy Modified DSII: http://www.rctech.net/forum/showpost...&postcount=195
