clutch spring is the thing to change. engine bearings ? hahaha doesnt effect car grip.
next time, try the clutch spring.
U said track no grip !
so can choice F35 R37 Shore tire
use soft spring & gap is small ,
will have smooth to control ,
but lose some power , so need turn your engine ,
have response & Punch ,
but engine bearing had gap will hard to turn your engine to fast !

low traction, but unbelievable tire wear ! 3mm of tire wear in like 5 mins of racing. while 35's are ok for qualifying, 30 min finals, it is a race as to who has more tires left . but the srepents are the best for tire wear, others have more than that.
the only way i have balanced the power, to grip ratio was to use the 1.7 spring. even between the serpent cars, mine was the smoothest on power , and this also added to less tire wear, due to not spinning up the tires.
it was a suggestion for someone else. i wasnt asking for the help. my car is good, after i used the 1.7 spring.
there is no problem with engine tune, i have power i have speed, ask anyone that sees the car go past them ! but it was getting on power that was a problem. i tried many things to settle the rear. nothing really worked till i used the 1.7 spring. so thats why i suggested it to NitroWD.
when the grip is there, i use 1.8, and agressive settings, but not at my home track.

Does anyone know what the weight difference between a 720 roller and a 733 roller?
Anyone know the answer to this question?

If you guys come up with a list of parts to lighten the load, I'll be more than happy to post up a weight guide for the 733 on the Knowledge Base.

I just weighted my 733 yesterday. The car as it came out of the box, no tires, with all the radio gear installed, no pipe, no engine, and no body weights 1299grams.

Its not gonna weight that for long though

Im using Futaba radio gear. The servos are BLS541s, both of the them.

Is that with all the dirt in the car from the nationals or is it clean?

Don't have the car anymore for me, but this is my suggestion:

- Get "H" suspension parts right away, it's way more stronger than original one.

- Pivotball always run out-of-stock for my LHS. If it does the same for you, get spare just in case. Xray pivotball is long and can only be use on rear of rear suspension.

- Stock spring is either too hard (33front) or too soft (23.5 rear). I end up using 28.5front/25rear on low bit condition, and 30.5front/28rear on normal condition.
