- Alu radio mount (X-brace)
- Alu mid pooly holder
- CVD's

Hopup's aren't required, but they do help the handling of the car on most tracks.
The CVD's are there to make the car smoother, so that helps on every track

To help give the front end alittle more protection, I would get the 720 lola front lower bumper plate and get the 710 front foam bumper pad... Unless you never crash and no one ever hits you on the track... The cvd's and the long ackerman as stated by B4... The longer ackerman will make the car feel smoother and so much more easier to drive... Other then that, the car is ready to go out the box...

SKYLINE makes a lot of good hop ups for the 720 and they all serve their purpose, from front and rear shock towers to rear upper camber plate, front aluminum post, ligthened 2 speed shaft......

Oh right - they're back online. I don't know if you realised, when you post the previous plug, I went to the website and it said "Bandwidth exceeded!".

By the way, I've just posted a "Scenes Video" from the Brisbane Worlds courtesy of Kyle Branson and family and I think I'll be getting a "Bandwidth exceeded" message soon to!
