My track: http://www.machheemstede.nl/ec2011/i...&id=2&Itemid=5
I'd start with the box setup on the front. As far as starting without the DLS would just be your personal choice. The car feels a little different when you switch to DLS from the standard rear end but only the first lap or two. Try the box setup if you try without DLS. With DLS try 3 camber, 2.5 toe, roll center middle, and 5mm shims on the uprights.

He was in the Mugen thread as well the other day. Even said positive things.
I think it's a scandal and should be investigated

Ummmmm why were you in the Xray thread? I was looking to see how many times my name is mentioned. What's your excuse? Is the rumor true about you joining the Xray training camp? I saw you and Drew talking over by the port-A-potties. Does Kyosho know?

Is anyone running an Novarossi engine with an INS box on their 733?

I can't seem to get enough clearance for the fuel line as the fuel inlet on the carb hits the side brace or hits the Xceed INS box

If someone has a photo, please post.

It's very tight.
I'm running Sirio engines and I have to squeeze the fuel line between the cooling head and the INS box

Yes, I thought about running it in between the cooling head and box, but didn't like the fuel line so close to the heat.

I finally managed to get it in nicely, I just had to keep playing with the carb positioning and fuel inlet positioning, and shaved about 2mm off a small section of the side brace - what a pain!

Front tires should wear flat, rear should cone to the inside. I run 47.7 but 45.5 should be fine also. Not sure if the 2.2mm difference hurts anything.

I just finished building my EVO and really like it. The build went very smooth. I had only one problem, they put a small suspension bracket in the kit instead of the wide one, but thatís being fixed.
I only think itís a bit strange that the connection parts to connect the new bulkheads and the 2speed mounts arenít included in the kit, did they forget mine or do you have to buy them separate. I also am missing the carbon brace for the DLS. Or can you mount the aluminum parts also on the original carbon brace? (which hole?).

Iím thinking of machining the connection parts myself, which material would be most suited for the rubber one?

Thanks for the advise on setup. I think I will start without DLS and put it on when I know the car a bit better.

The connector pieces have not been released yet. I've converted my 733 to an EVO model and the only pieces I'm waiting on are the two different type of connectors.

The DLS should have came complete. I would get the correct part from Serpent. No need to throw another variable into the mix.


Pass you soon...
