If you look closely to the lower arm you can see a adjusting nut to set the play on the pivot ball for the swaybar. It is the same ball and nut as is used in the S120 front suspension. Because the ball is adjustable from the bottom it is very easy to set the tweak on the swaybar

It is indeed the optional disk for the 966.

As was stated earlier, you might get away with using the 1/10 optional one when you add a spacer on the bushing to get the brakepads slightly closer together.

As the brake system on the 733 is equal to the 966, you'll have plenty of brake anyway!

Julius would this be the final chassis or would the chassis have cut outs like the 720 ?

This is the final chassis. 3mm thus no cutouts needed.

A chassis with no cut outs would be better than one with cut outs aerodynamically. But maybe due to scale size it may not really matter. Personally I am excited looking at the bottom of the 733 chassis

I have made up my mind... I will get the 733, and give the Evo2 WC to my son to drive. Once he is ready, will sell it and get another 733 for the "I Know I Can't Drive, So Shut Up! scuderia".

wow. I really tried to find a bad spot on this car, but really can't find it...
It's really hard to resist the power of the pre-order at my local shop...


Oh, btw, is that a low profile brake/gas servo?
