I learned this a couple of races ago. The DLS hates bumpy tracks!

I had different experience. I was testing on a low grip medium-size track with some huge bumps and it was all day and night faster and more consistent with DLS even when the tires and rideheight was very low. I felt also when it starts sliding it is whole lot easier/faster to regain grip/control back on the car. IMHO.

Don't get me wrong the car worked but it was edgy when I hit a bump.

Hi everyone,

I will be running 733 Evo for upcoming national series this year in Turkey along with Mega-Max power engines and Xceed Carbon rim tires.

I have heard about the car being little heavier than legal limit, so any suggestions for lightening up this beauty? I searched the internet a lot in order to find some manufacturers producing titanium screw kits, lightweight main and middle shafts, etc. but nothing came up. Did you guys find any? And anyone here used the plastic diff gears with success? I have a set made by capricorn, and it had no problem on lab c01 car.

I will be using Life pack and two low profile servos, Xceed A5, Chevy V2, and Protoform P56 bodies, Xceed INS box, and optional alum. chassis stiffner to complete.

Thanks!

You should be very close to limit running the life pack. low profile servos, carbon wheels and light weight body (I am 5g over with these 4 items alone).

You can also look at CSO lightweight 2-speed shaft and lightweight brake disc.

For the screws, you can buy for the mugen mtx4 the titanium kits T0809 and T0810 for 80% the 733 screw.
For the lightweight main and middle shafts, http://www.kd-racing.fr/titane-pour-p-344.html

Hello,

Xceed has nice Titanium screw set for the 733 and also light geardiff set. I would use the original diff gears but with 1 shaft and 2 planetary gears only. You need to double the thickness of the oil you would use with original 4 gears setup in this case.

You can find Titanium shafts and alu wheelaxles here: http://www.tt-tuning.hu/
Ti Middle shaft
Ti 2-speed shaft
Alu CVD front axles
Alu rear axles
Alu Swaybar mounts

Hope this help,
Gergely

Thanks guys for so much options for me to choose from! Looks like I need to build my car first and weight it before buying any optionals. But it wont hurt having lightweight transmission and lower CoG on the car, so I may think adding some weight under the fuel tank.

take your time with the build of the car, there are some parts you have
to work on them before putting them in the car. For optionals, if you have
bought the evo, really i cant think of need for any optionals.. Only things i
have changed to my 733 is the rear belt to the 5mm belt (this is a must),
the pivot balls to better ones (from my 720), the ball joints (#903230) and
H suspension.

Default Question gents?

What did you guys do to lighten up your cars? I know switch batteries any other suggestions. What about making the drive train smoother.
