The 2 speed clutch system is the same as 966? Only the 2 speed shoe is of different p/n? Why the diff in p/n?
Rest of the parts are the same as 966.

The difference is the spring. The 1/8 scale use a stiffer spring than the sedan

Keavze, i tried the spool, no front bar, with purple front springs, i also tried a couple of different tire combos. 37/40 was better than 40/37. 40/37 was good when using the blue front spring, and when the track was a little slippery. i also used the new Xceed A5. the car is close to where i want it now. i ran 1mm caster with the spool as well.

thanks paul for yr info...

i'm thinking of trying a softer frt spring (now using blue) with the stock 2.5mm bar. i'm using 37F/40R. 300k frt diff with 80k rear diff. right now my front tires able to maintain the 2mm split from beginning to the end, something not right? usually the rear will wear faster and the split will get lesser right?

won't purple spring be alittle too hard? 1mm caster = how many mm of clips in frt of arms?

so..., spool is better for you than diff?

firstly i like the spool, i have kept it in to try some things. nothing tried nothing ventured ? by removing the front bar, it actually allows the front wheels to work independantly, by going harder front spring, the car doesnt loose the ability to change direction fast. also i find the harder spring allows for faster weight transfer to the rear, so rear grip actually is increased a little as well. i have 3mm of caster clips in the front of the top arm, with 2mm shorter wheelbase, yes it actually is 1mm of caster. you can run a thicker rear diff oil with this setup as well, due to the increased rear grip. i went from 30k rear to 40k, with short rear wheelbase as well. so i have a car now that rotates well, changes direction quickly and it is very settled.
if you like a car that pushes a little, you can go to 40 all round. i found tire wear to be better with this setup as well. i like this setup, but depends on how you like your car to drive. i can carry more corner entry speed in, and let the spool slow the car down mid corner, then hit the throttle to get around the last little bit. im now getting more front tire wear with this setup, so now my split maintains itself as well. but i must say the grip isnt the best, its actually a low traction track. but i also use the same sort of setup with the 966, a grey front spring and long red at the back.

hi paul,
so you didn't use any frt sway bar for both yr 733 and 966?
my 733 is very stable and easy to drive; maybe abit too stable and settled...haha.

my 966 has been pretty dialed for my liking.

not sure what the tracks are like where you race ? but here is a link to where i race. http://www.onroadrccarclubbunbury.org.au/Site/index.htm

low traction, high tire wear, and piping to make you drive better

you've got the best timings for 1/10 and 1/8... great job!

my track here got similar straight of 55m but 1/8 takes about 17s while 1/10 takes about 19s. low-medium traction, new tires will wear out in about 35-40mins.

we battle to finish with foam still on the plastic in 30 mins. the serpent wether 720 or 733 seems to have the best tire wear. in official practice for the states, i actually did a 15.9 with the tourer. but its not official time.

LW shafts would be cool, hollow steel is good coming from kyosho. ti, maybe not so much..

Ti kit would really be cool, but look for 3racing or someone like that. You could probably get away with the NT1 kit or anything else and be close. Buy 2 for $75 and have plenty of spare ti screws.

Is there anyone who can gauge the weight of 733's main and middle shafts, spur gear adaptors, differentials, and universals? Im trying to compare the transmission weights of the cars available today. I have stock and option xray parts' info, and waiting for the capricorn car.

Thanks
