yes spool, high insert for front top arms. and steering links on underside of steering hubs for clearance , and forward ackerman. car is really settled, and lots of steering and rear grip. just how i like it purple front and red long rear springs. track is low to Med grip with bumps , what more can you ask for
oh and savage tire wear, there thats more

The hole in the insert at the top is a lower roll center than with the hole in the middle or bottom. It's opposite because the rear roll center is changed on the lower hinge pin and the front is on the upper hinge pin.

Has anyone come out with a large 1/8 scale style bumper for the 733 yet? You know, one of those huge ones that spans the entire front of the car across the front tires...

Hi everyone,

I am building my 733 and noticed when building the diffs (the first thing you put together, axle and gear with 1 screw to tighten) is that the axle doesn't turn freely.

Anyone else has this problem please ?

Or do you need to run a couple of laps first ?

Thanks,

Greetz,

Christoph

its more a tight fit of the axle to the plastic. it will free up after a few tanks, nothing too much to worry about. just make sure you use a black grease on your one way bearing for first gear. many people have been told to use this grease, instead of one way lube, it will prevent the one way bearing from locking up.
