There are a few of us out there that are looking for that setup. I am sure we will figure it out when we get there. LoL

SERPENT 733 - What a car!

3rd race with it, and loving it more and more, I have a few things to try for the next race which I am sure will make it faster.

A couple of interesting things I tried over the weekend:

2 bevel diff - felt much better, alot smoother, plus the added bonus of saving on rotating mass - worked perfectly over 3 days of hard racing.
Yellow Clutch shoe - too agressive for my liking regardless of how low the spring was set.
M Plastics - massive grip difference over H, very durable and fit better.
DJ's shaved rear anti-roll bar trick - calmed the rear end nicely.

Has anyone tried the xceed diffs yet? I hear some of the other brands are having reliability problems with the composite diffs??

Very few parts will interchange between the cars. I think only the steering blocks, drive hexes, cvd's, and shocks.

I will be running the 733 at Leisure hours this weekend. Car is pretty much dialed in, just needs a minor touch to the rear suspension...

Can't wait!

Default front belt

Hey guy's,

Ran my 733 for the first time on the weekend and what a great car. I done 2 practise sessions plus 6 qualifier heats and a 10min final. I'm stripping the car at the moment and have noticed that the front belt is partially stripped and the small pulley on the small layshaft is destroyed. i noticed that the belt seems to be running on the left hand side of the diff and layshaft pulleys very hard, i cant see anything that is forcing it over to this side of the pulleys. Where is everyone elses belt running in the centre or to one side or has anyone else had any of these issues at all.

thanks in advance.

Micky, just shim the middle pulley left or right so the belt runs evenly, thats what I did...

...a little leakage in one of my diffs as well...brand new.

I`m trying to find the Orange Serpent colour (limited stock of paint in the shops here in Norway).
I`v bought 5 different ones, and they all are awful.

Can anybody guide me to the correct colour.....

Best Regards

i never used a diff long enough to notice any alignment problems. i did notice some with a car here at the WA states. was a lack of use of the plastic spacers between diff and bearings. a spool is a nice fit and guides the belt better. with the diffs, i really think its the design that catches people out.
when assembling them, diff fluid gets in the tubes where the screws go, and fills them up, and when the cases compress, if you have the pulley on it, a fair bit of diff fluid gets caught up. i really think its a weapage of the diff fluid coming out around the screws, and leaks down to the joint if left sitting for a while in one spot. i have used sealant on the diff o ring, and i try to clean out the pulley screw side of oil, as i think it compresses so much and stresses the plastic tubes as well when fitting the remaining screws for the pulley. Just my thaughts , regards, Patto.
