No all belts are different between 720 and 733.
The orange belts are fine. The original 4mm rear belt was no good, but the newer 5mm is perfect. There is a very small gain in the freerun belts but it's not a huge difference.

Just had the WA State titles here today, as defending Champ with the 720 08, From Last year with the 720, the 733 improved the TQ Time by 3 seconds (could have been 6 seconds, due to Locked up 1st hub just before the line).
102 Laps last year with the 720, and this year with the 733, 103 Laps in 30 mins. Just 0.8 seconds off 104 Laps. Serpent TQ, Win, and 3rd, 4th and 5th placings. cant say enough about the car, and the 966, just Awesome cars.

Thanks to Walter RC for their support in the last few months, and Xceed tires are just superb.

Default need help pls

hi serpent racer,
i'm stephen from malaysia. recently i shift fr. 720-09 to 733.
just like you guys says the car is simply GOOD
last week after i bash my 733 on weekend, i came home and check my car,
found out that front upper arm where we adjust the caster spacer,
i have set on 4mm ( which means the upper arm's setting is original set.)
but when i turn the tyre when the steering is at max., there is a knock or
a stuck at the U.J. why is this happening? i have to set the upper arm spacer or caster more ( to the max. ) only then it will be ok, but there is still
a small amount of knock at the U.J.

pls let me know what i do wrong..

tks a lots

happy racing .....

You should not use or need that much steering throw. The steering blocks can turn more than the cvd's will allow, so just adjust travel to keep the joints from binding.
