Pass you soon...
Yep, I got the pinion wrench. Just looking for the holder that goes inside the flywheel (as I have already damaged a flywheel trying to remove a very tight pinion off it)

I have not come across the clutchbell holder for the 733. Since I use neverseize on my pinions; rarely are they hard to come off. I use a small allen wrench thru the access hole.

Sometimes I scratch my head with how serpent come up with pricing????

Complete DLS kit is $115.

However, if you ordered the parts seperately:

Serpent 733 Camber Bracket Carbon DLS - $12.00
Serpent 733 Support Brackets Carbon DLS (2) - $8.30
Serpent 733 Pivot Lever Alu (2) - $18.00
add the bearings, tie rods, spacers, plastics - $31.85

Total = $70.15US if ordered seperately

It takes a "cheap Chinese" to figure a way to get a DLS for less.

My congrats to you. You're a better "cheap Chinese" than me.

The best way is the way which allows YOU to drive your car around the track faster. The DLS system adds so much rear traction that some people run it with the sway bar to take away some rear traction to gain more steering.

Pass you soon...

It depends on your track and your setup.
