I allready orderd it today
It`s al lot of money for what Roelof discribed, but if it works (Salven drove it at our home track and was pretty fast!!!), then it will be worth every dollar.

I hope it will come soon, so i can try it before the next National.

Nice video but why is the car missing a screw in the shock tower? Lol

Also, I saw in the pics from the worlds that all or most of the 733 cars had a "new" rear chassis brace set up that connects the rear two speed shaft blocks with the diff covers on the rear end. Can anyone shed some light on this? Was this for the worlds only? It looked like the right side two speed shaft block had just been made since it did not have the same silver anodizing as the left side? Just curious.

It depends on what your priority is. If you are in dire need of more traction for your set-up and track, then this is the fix. However if you're like me who have no problems with rear grip (actually too much) then its a wait and see.

I will say this though. Last time I ran at my track I used a 45rears with 40fronts in an effort to gain more steering because I didn't have 37fronts. The rear end popped out a bit on exit of the turns but was manageable. However, if I had the DLS system in the rear, that rear end would have been planted the whole time. I also had excellent tire wear at the end of the 20min main as a result of using the 45s.

So think of it this way, what you lose in the purchase of the DLS can be gained from the savings in tire wear. Eventually after several sets, it can pay for itself.

Is this long term or just in part because you're gonna race something else other than 1/10th nitro?

It's long term. Not switching brands or classes. Just taking a step back. Real life needs me.
