car is sooooo much better than the 748. Rear grip is on point. Running the kit setup except for blue springs, 2 hole 2 stage pistons and 900cst (per Walters suggestion)and I am already .5 second faster than my 748 on two different tracks! Even using the kit Dif oils!

Pass you soon...
are the low profile servos required for this chassis? thought I read somewhere that standard size will hit the tank on the 748? I picked up 2 savox hi speed standard size not knowing this, should I pick up 2 low profile servos and just delay the build for another week or so?

You need a low-profile servo for the throttle/brake. A standard will work for steering.

The 748 and 750 were specifically design for low profile servos only, if you put a standard size servo in the steering it will offset the balance of the car.

Thanks for all the info up to now. Finalizing my car build now, in the shimming process. Definitely like the changes made on the S750. Diffs positioning is awesome, makes it easy to hold the eccentric position hands free before putting the upper bulk head on. Hope to try this car out at my local track soon.

Is it safe to say that this is a decent contender? I recently moved down to Homestead, FL (about 5 minutes away from HRCR, as a matter of fact ), and I have the itch to race again after an 18 year hiatus.

I still have my Serpent Impulse (with a few Pro upgrades) that I could TECHNICALLY run, but... yeah- Iíd probably be one or two love taps against a board away from retiring it for good - my spare parts inventory is not that deep, lol. I also doubt that my serpent branded .12 motor (which was manufactured by Novarossi for Serpent IIRC) could hold a candle to the current generation of .12ís regardless. Anyway, Serpent was the only Nitro brand I ever used. Local support for Serpent was always great here in South Florida dating back to the 90ís, and despite all the logistical changes to the company over the years, itís good to see the brand still going.

Nice to see you might come back to race. This Saturday there might be people at the track. Not sure with the holiday weekend, but pass by since you are so close and check it out. From there you can ask questions to see what brands there are and support. I can tell you the 2 main companies locally are RCtarget and Serpent. I race for RCtarget and they carry the Capricorn products and Serpent America is run by Desoto racing. I think the product you have is out dated, but you can come with it to the track and try it out. For racing I think you will want something newer, as a lot has changed, but for sure you can drive your car there.

Yeah. I stopped for about 20 years and then needed a hobby and got back into it. See you there if you go.

Well, stopped by the track today around 1:30PM, just to check it out, but no one was there - and with good reason; it started raining in the area no more than 5 minutes after I left. if itís usually open for practice on Saturdays, Iíll stop by in two weeks (Iíll be tied up next week).

Iím one step closer to making my way back to the track... picked up my 750 today! Aside from the usual spare ďextremitiesĒ, are there any specific spares or optionals that I should consider having in my parts box from Day One?

Ooh! I hadn't even thought about that... Thanks. I had the pinions in mind, should've thought about the spurs too. I also noticed that since the kit comes with 2 hole pistons, so I may get the 1's and 3's to have them in my box as well. weights can come later too
