Check for binds

Blue front, Orange rear? With all the rear traction DLS is supposed to generate, something odd is happening??

Yeah I know but I'm getting him back to a base setup so we can figure it out. By the way are you helping him or still doubting the DLS?

I tried the DLS twice and have since removed it.

At least you finally tried it, now you can have an opinion of it based on experience.

So what do you think may be happening to ugglasdav car mid corner?

Expensive opinion!

I would go heavier shock oils, lighter rear diff, check dls rod lengths are equal, etc etc...

i think for starters swap springs, front to back, and take off the shocks from bottom arms. check smoothness of dls. then make sure you have enough ride hieght. DLS needs 1 or 2mm more hieght, as it will get very unsettled if it bottoms out all the time.
Nova , i have no idea why you think the dls dont work. you must be doing somthing wrong. it is a great piece of gear.

Not saying it doesn't work. Just found you had to really upset the balance of the car to get it to work at our track.

To give you an idea, Ric runs 42s all arounds at our track! The others run 40s all round! It will probably work well on other tracks, but because Moorebank is fast/big/flowing and grippy, not suitable imo

thanks patto,
Also any more ideas with using the DLS system in regards to set ups and the like

guys, i recently ordered a whole bunch of spur gears for the 733. some of these spur gears have the letter "X" etched on them.

I take it these are supposed to be the new/improved batch?

Default 1st gear hub Breakage

Hi Guys,
Ran my 733 evo for the first time yesterday and was very impressed,
Run the car again today about 10 laps in lost drive and once i collected the car from the infield had a quick check found the aluminium oneway hub that holds 1st gear had cracked thus releasing its hold on the oneway bearing!

Is this common, will i need to carry plenty of spares or is there a fix?
