What would you say about the stock brake disc?
IMO it's not so good and little bit not straight.

Did you test CSO, Xceed or Optional Serpent brake?
I need to have one of these, but I don't know which one exactly.

The car is very easy to drive with stock setup. No options needed. Also, the car has a large range where it works well.

My current setup is still very close to stock.
One of the big advantages to the 733 is the open design. This makes everything easy to clean and maintain.

The "h" marked hard suspension parts are about as stiff as the stock ones. Just try to feel the difference by trying to bend the parts by hand. However the "h" marked parts ar made from a different material which will be much more crash resistent.

For high/med grip tracks the "h" parts are good. There will be a softer version suited for low/med grip tracks soon

hey guys quick Q, upto assembling my diffs, and my front binds pretty heavily when turning the outdrives by hand.. i have checked to make sure the screws in the diffs are in tight enough etc. and i was just wondering if it will be tight for a little while while they are running in or is there something else i should be checking?

Check if you mount the excentric (tensioner) in the same position left and right...
