-LiPo Reciever pack
-Xceed Ti Screws

Then you have other things like:

-Lightweight bodies (eg Protoform make normal and "light weight versions, there is 15g difference between the two)
-Lightweight wheels (Capricorn save about 20g all round compared to normal rims)

If your a normal club driver, 50grams won't do much to your times. But if your searching for that 0.1 or 0.2 on the limit, then saving weight is a must.

But then again, improving the efficiency of your car will probably yield the same result (eg ceramic bearings, low friction belts, etc)
Funny, this is what i did exactly, from 1950 to 1780 gram for the total car.
Only the xceed diff broke down, the little pin is in the satelitewheel now , but i replaced the 10mm for a 7mm, perhaps this is to short.

Perhaps the chasis can save some grams??

1950 ?why your car weights too much ?my 710 weights about 1770 ...is 733 that heavy?


about the diffs ...the factory setup says 80k in front and 30k in rear ..is this good for a start or i must use sth else ? mention that my track has lots of grip as the asphalt and the track is brand new and clean ...


for engine i am gonna use Sirio XXX ..i have it in my 710 with 1gallon and i will use it in my brand new 733 ...what is your opinion about this engine ? i think that is a nice and reliable fast engine with a low cost ....

Jimbo one word of advice when ur using a SIRIO engine place a 1mm shim under the 4 corners of the engine mounts unless you purchase the sirio engine mounts.

you mean the screws that connect the engine mount with the sassis ?or the screws near the side of the engine that connect the engine with the engine mount ...described it to me my friend if you can ....

why i must place the shims ?
these shims raise the mount higher and the engine fits better ?

i think you mean the first ...the truth is that i havent understand very well the engine mount system ...
we put the mount into the sasis and then the engine in the engine mount and adjusting the correst position with the screws ?

Between the chassis and lower motor mount. The Sirio's engine block is bigger than Novarossi so it will hit and not line up right. Trust me i had to do it once when I used a Sirio

ok my friend thanks for the advise ...you save me from wasted time ...are there any shims in the kit or i must use some others from my spares ?

another question is ...if i place this shims 1mm the engine will raise higher ...then maybe i will have problem with the flywheel and the starter box.. i am thinking that maybe the wheel cant reach the flywheel in order to move it ...is it right my thought or i wont have problem ?

This mount will leave you with zero engine alignment options if I see that correctly

I'm running Sirio XXX and XXXV's in my 733 with the Sirio engine mount W/O any issues or shims.

The only tight spot is the fuel hose from the carb to the tank. I have to run it between head and carb.

That's what I'm saying if you have the stock mount you need to raise it up by 1mm if your using the optional mount for a Sirio engine you don't have to raise it

The fastest and easiest method would be through Capricorn directly.
You can contact them about the shipping costs to the US.

If you have a bit more time and want to save on shipping costs order it through Team Epic or your local Capricorn reseller.
