First of all, you said you wanted a monster and that it had to be durable. You didn't say that you were on a budget.

$600 is full retail and like everything in this hobby, no body sells for full retail. If you really want one here you go.

Hop ups and options will always be available for any car. For the 733 there's plenty. However, just to get started, the kit is a good base.

The latest is the new DLS rear link system which was recently used by the team drivers at the World Champs race in TX. Read back a few pages on this thread you find more info on that option.

Default DLS System

Hi fellow Serpents,

As we all know,the DLS has been introduced during the Worlds,and I am interested in giving it a try.Currently,my 733 has been dialed in for my local track so im worried if i try the DLS,it would mess up the car's handling and performance.

So just want to know from those who has given the DLS a try,is there major changes to the setup for it to work properly or it works just fine out of the package??Please do share your experiences with the 733 before and after with the DLS since its been out for some time now hence there should be guys out there who have tested it thoroughly.

Thanks guys!

One of our guys just used the DLS this weekend. The rear end is really planted. However the drawback is that you need to adjust your setup by trying to find more steering to compensate. That was done by lowering the front's roll center and adding more droop while reducing some droop in the rear.

Once you're able to dial in more steering, the car will be enter and exit the turns easily while on throttle. Hence, more corner speed.

Double check the the install for any binds. What is your measurement on your linkage on the inside. Set it to 47.7mm. Start with 3 camber and 3 toe and adjust from there. Make sure there are no binds. The system works great so you may have missed something.

47.7 is what we were told to set at the worlds so thats where mine is. 45.5 is pretty close but not sure if it will make a difference. Paolo may know that answer.

I have run the DLS with and with out the sway bar. With the anti installed it allows the rear to rotate more. Watch the ball cups on the lower arm for binds
