Fyi, the pivotball is kind soft in kit. I bend one (rear PB of rear suspension) in a very small crash, relacing with Xray steel one. It's a bit long for 733 but still work.

What ever you hit it must have a been a pretty hard hit, I've never seem a 733 or 720 pivot ball bent, the arm will break first. And why replace it with a Xray? All you're doing is adding weight.

By the way, the pivot balls ARE aluminum, in case you didnt know, best ones in the bussines!

I know stock is Aluminum and I know it's lightweight. But I rather to have a few gram with strong pivotball. Beside, breaking arms is cheaper/more notable than bend pivotball. If something need to take the crash energy, let it be arm, not pivotball.

And, it's a "VERY" light crash, body doesnt even deform, yet still bend it. Maybe it's because my car is 1st batch, but anyway, stronger steel pivotball ftw.

Off course I cannot argue about the impact as I wasn't there. But the alu pivot balls have been unchanged since the 710 and I've yet to bend one.

Nothing is impossible. But it sure has nothing to do with first batch...

anyone tried changing the position the steering links attatch to the steering hub ?
for the life of me i cant run the forward outer Ackerman position in the servo saver with out the steering arms getting very close or touching the alloy bulkheads.
only way i have found to do it is the outer steering attatchment to go under the the hub, so the attatchment screw on top , and the linkage to the underside of the bearing block/steering hub.
would this effect the ackerman as well, due the arms being more flat as it steers ?

i have had a few big, and i mean big hits.
i have broken one bumper plate top and bottom, 2 left lower front arms, and reciever box. everything else , absolutely fine. i really think a new type of bumper will fix quite a few issues. like a wide lower plate like the 08/09 720. this will also protect the lower arms more. but i have already said this once or twice before. still nothing new to fix it.

Remember about the pivot balls, it is better they bend than break. At least you can finish a run. It a hit bent the pivot ball, it will most likely break one than it stiffer. Just food for thought.

i'm planning to get a replacement set of bearings for my 733, specifically i was thinking about getting a set of boca bearings, i know the best ones are the ones with orange seal, which are 360.99 dollars, besides those ones which are the ones i should get? i saw a set for 144 but my doubt was that there's a set with metal shield and another one with yellow ruber seal, which one do you recommend me?

The ceramic set with the Gray seals from Serpent are the best, and it is only US$129.99.

You could opt to get the green seal or the $1 bearing. To be absolutey honest there really isnt that much performance gain going from say stock to ceramics. Example Paolo ...stock bearing, fast yes and just as easy to maintain.
