hello guys,

after a broken suspension arm (M), i decided to go to the H suspension kit.. However the front lower arms are binding cause they have a tighter fit than before. Will they free up after some laps or should i shave them alitle bit to have a free move?

I haven't run the H arms. I'm sure they will free up a little after you run them, but I will highly recommend to shave them a little bit.
Free suspension has a really high impact on handling of the car....

I also added the DLS to my car and tested it this weekend. The rear end is really really good. Rias 5037 are you coming up for the nationals at the end of the month?

Nah boet, decided to only run my home nats this year, no away nats. Are you running all the nats, see you running a 353 now, have you given up on the jlr's. It took me a few setup tries to get DLS working 4 DMCC, but once i got it right car was on rails.

Just ordered the EVO, same price (419 euro) as the "old" 733.
Can't wait to build it!

Hey guys I just finished running 2011 Winter Nats and I managed to put the only Serpent 733 EVO in the A main. The car was just awesome I've been to this track many times and this was the fastest I've ever been. picked up a lap on my best qualifying time and shaved .3 off my fastest lap. It really is amazing how stable the car is with the DLS. I still have work to do on the driving side but the car is there.

Cruzer body/Matrix tires
Setup
Traction High, Fast and flowing.
Front: width 198/ diff 200K
camber 2, short wb, caster 3mm/roll center up
#2 piston/1000cst/purple spring/2nd hole up
stock sway bar.
Droop-1

Rear: DLS and sway bar
Width 200mm/ Diff 50K
Camber 3.5/toe 2.5/short wb/ roll center middle
#2 piston/1000cst/pink spring/2nd hole up
7mm of spacers on upright.
Droop-4

Marcos you did a great Job this week with putting the only 733 in the Amain. Also with the pressure of running with the Big Boyz.... T-roy and I knew you could do it.... And now I have someone to help me bring home the Hardware

Great job Mr Moten,

I told you; I need to keep my good eye on you
I will need to chat with you when I install my DLS system this season.

I'm pleased to see you and Chicky done well and all of the other Serpent pilots.

as always...


Pass you soon...

Thanks man! Any questions on the setup just let me know. I've been running the DLS since the Worlds last year and I love it.

My 733 EVO arrived today!

Do you guys have a good setup with DLS for a European style track? Im guessing a setup with DLS is quite different from the standard setup, what should I change?

Or should I start without DLS and first learn the car before putting it on?

My track: http://www.machheemstede.nl/ec2011/i...&id=2&Itemid=5

That is basically the Serpent test track. I would check if Michael Salven has any posted on serpent.com if not start off with quietstorms setup just maybe stock diff oils as the traction is a lil different
