Default Serpent 720 09

i know this kit is very new i know, and some may have it already. i have a question that is bugging me. the option for the 08 or any 720 worth having is the WC trans. i have it fitted to my original 720, and since havent done a spur since fitting it. since this is an option part, and i have now stocked many spares for the WC trans. is it std on the 09 720 ? it would be a shame if it is not std, as i think most would have upgraded by now to it. thanks

I'm quite sure that among the upgrades and options for the '09 version is the LCG chassis and the WC gears, and I believe some changes to the rear.

The WC gears are not included in the 09 kits, the 803199 LCG chassis is included so does the new Front CVD PRO axles, the 31mm flywheel and the LCG one piece engine mount are among the upgrades that came with the 09.

I believe the plastic parts for the front end are now made stronger also. No more breaking knuckles.

You are correct there Melvin, the plastics are much stronger now.

bit dissapointed it doesnt come with the WC trans. seems a waste to throw out new parts of a new released kit cause they are outdated. i really think serpent needed to include the WC trans in the kit. oh well. looks like ill hold of on a new car for a while then.

I won't consider the LC Trans outdated, because they are still being produced.

i can not use 16/61 with LC, i would strip first gear sometimes in a matter of minuets. since i changed to WC never stripped a gear, i replaced due to wear but never failed me, so i will not go backwards to the LC , and as i read the 09 description, all parts that were options are now std on 720 09. so im just asking why isnt the WC on the 09, it is an option for the 08 isnt it ?. My problem lies with srepent not you Sam, hope you understand.

The WC transmission has wider spurs and pinions and if I'm not mistaken the red shoe.

Why has the yellow shoe been discontinued for sedans in favor of the red. That leaves us with the xp(black) shoe and red only.
