Agreed!! I got to watch a lot of the races as I had a keen interest in how my RC buds were doing down there. Refereeing seemed very inconsistent. I'll leave it at that..

I remember not liking the call that was made against Paul Lemieux after his pass on Martin Hudy, on a side by side collision in the last S turns...I hope they decide to move the loop to another section of the track where there is no chicanes and enough space behind the loop to stop those ridiculous dives at the loop from wrecking the cars: I would say 25 feet before pitlane would be perfect.....

Going to wait for Joaquin's and Dominics setups from the Worlds to see how they compare to each others and the kit setup before final adjustments.
front upper arms? The lower ones were fine with me. Uppers needed a minimal shave of the inserts. I prefer to shave the inserts because when a quick change of arm is neede I will forget to shave it 😂

The uppers were fine! The bottoms were not lined up front to rear. Lots of reaming and testing. SerpentAmerica has 750 kits and parts in stock. I'm going to order spares and check them out.

I never thought to clearance the insert, I sand the 2mm caster clip on a flat surface until I get the desired arm drop.

interesting. I did not have any issue with the lower ones. Also I donít mind if they are just slightly tight. They free up after the first run normally.
grinding the caster clip is fine as well. But my caster clips often have a way of doing a magical disappearing act... so I grind stuff I am less likely to lose 😂

For the information your looking for I would look thru the 748WC forum. The Natrix 750 is a fairly new chassis. But the 748wc and 750 share the same info when answering your questions. For servos I prefer Low profile servos. I would only us a lipo battery if you are using high voltage electronics.

Pass you soon...

after a bunch of research I decided to go with just a nice NIMH flat pack, seems most do this and are happy with it. just received the engine and pipe set up, I will receive the car and all electronics on 1/16 and look forward to getting my hands on it and starting the build. thank you for all of your help!

have fun building.
Just make sure when using an nimh pack to shim the fuel tank if needed. The manual has info on this.

My build went pretty well. All of my arms were fine. The only issue I had is the shims on the brake pad module. I opted for 1.0 mm shims vice the 1.5 shims. I also had to add a small amount of shims behind the 2 speed pin to make sure the housing doesn't touch the right rear bulkhd because of the thinner shims. This also lined up the rear pulley a little better.

the spacing of the brake pad module is close indeed. I used the 1.5 shims but attached the brake module to the 2speed bearing block before installing on the chassis.

I've seen this chassis on RedRC. Gotta wear out my current chassis before considering this. Even then, not sure I want to give up the weight as far as CoG goes. Thoughts??

Same here... In stock form my 750 is only 22 grams over the legal limit with 1 25 gram weight installed. Too much weight removed too low in the car....
