I have both the 710 and the 720. I mainly use the 720 because of the duribility of the rear. A year before the 720 was released, my primary race car was my 710. It worked great and still does!! Now since I have gotten used to the 720, I use my 710 as my back up. Many of the 720/710 parts are interchangable. I have parts for both. You can't go wrong either way.

I have both and now race the 720 mainly because of current available spares. I think the 720 also has better performance due to the change in upper deck, the sligthly longer wishbones and different gear ratios.

Stop thinking and debating. Just get the latest car that serpent has: The 08 720. There's a good reason why they replaced the 710 for the 720. If you decide on the 710, later down the line, you're gonna be saying, " Damn, I should've got the 720. " Trust me, I did this before and wasted alot of funds. Do yourself a favor, get the 08 720 . Goodluck.

Dude I have had all of them The Kyosho comes last on my list due to the fact of the 2nd gear not switching @ the same point and it has the same problem as the mugen stripping 2nd gear!!

Seprent rules! THAT is if I have to go away from my TM G4S!!!
