I got a chance to check out the 733 in the precess of being built at the ROAR region 1 regional this past weekend. The from what i see so far the quality looks great. I love the way the aluminium parts look ( no more stripped plastic ). The chassis looks solid too. Looks like they did their homework.

I've run my S720 for about a year and I never stipped a gear, I just replace them before longer mains. If you're striping spurs you need to check your mesh.

Wow!! 1 year that is excellent, your driving mus be awesome and the drivers you race against too.

I don't strip gears to often probably 2 to 3 times a year due to some Death racers or when I have a really bad collision.

I didnt say they lasted a year, I said I never striped one. Gears wear out like on any car, I ussualy replace them before mains at trophy races. I just make sure my mesh is set right and the pinions are not too worn out.

+1 and i make sure my mesh is set properly after each race because some crashes can be enough to move the motor. But i also have been lucky with the spur gears not stripping but im constantly changing my gearing because i race at three tracks.

Jilles was running the car yesterday at our track, salven and stef where there as well. He was preparing for the euro's

Really like the look of the car.
I believe it's the first of a new generation of tourers. All of the other brands will follow the new design benchmark set by Serpent.
