Default 733/biggie

ohla mr.rocha how r u amigo. i was glad i used the losi lube on the thrust bearing did not have none but i did use and reccomend the xceed lube for the one-way been using it for the last year and a half and is awesome. no problems. i also tried the rear arm link set-up that paolo talked about and man does work. i started where he described and brought down to 3mm. rest was similar to DJ'S or almost close to. car was sleek and fast and yes serpent cars were the fastest out there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!GO 73333333333333333 SEE YA AT THE WORLDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

just get the short and long spring kits. this will cover it all, also look at the front sway bar set, and the 2.3 rear sway bar. everything else from the kit is enough. if you like the front solid axle, then go for that as well.

Thanks guys for looking out. Sorry it took so long to reply, but I was getting some sleep actually.

I tried the shims once, however I stayed with no shims on the upright and the race that I set the record was with no shims. I only tried running shims in a practice once and liked it better without.

Are you rounding it or are you just grinding it flat to get the 1.1

two stupid questions.

1. when dj talks about +0.5mm front and 4mm rear downstops, is this measured with the shocks and sway bars mounted? or do you remove them? the setup sheet shows these measurements with the shocks mounted


2. with the front and rear belt tensioner things on the diffs, do both left/right need to be symentrical? for example, do the left and right slots need to be the same (middle slot left/right or front slot left/right etc etc). can the left one be say in the first slot and the right one be in the middle slot to get optimal tension in the belt?

1. Yes, with everything removed
2. Both need to always be the same.
