My 733 is between 1706-1717 depending on the body.
The chassie is very heavy on the radioside.
Take away the radio box = -25gram
Changed all the the screws but under under to aluminium= -40gram
Changed to lowprofile servos Futaba9551 shorten cables -45gram
Lighweight gearbox axel= -10gram
After this I had to put 10gram under the Lipo ack to get over 1700 with Chev Kruzer light weight body. It's now also very even in the weight between the sides.

But the weight limit is 1725g, so why do you need to go that light?

After 11 years running Mugen sedans and recently having switched to a 733, I have to say, quality wise, Serpent is still the dark side

But, it's a good handling car, if you keep it away from anything solid

Hi guys,

Just a little question. I use a universal stater box now, but i would love one that fits perfectly.
Like in the good old days for the 960, Serpent made one, perfect fit and top quality.

Which one do you guys use please ?

Thanks,

Christoph

If you have the starter box adapters for the Serpent then this Starter box is the way to go!

Unfortunately there are no 733 adapters.
I used the 720 ones and modified them to fit the 733.
