Hi Les,
Usually race at the Bayside club over at Wynnum......733 goes very well around there. (Be quiet RC Carnage! ) You should come on over and have a race sometime.
Will be venturing over to Brendale for the Qld champs again this year and maybe a race meet or two beforehand for a bit of testing.

And yeah the pivot point is very different when comparing to my older 733 with DLS.......wondering why Serpent have done this??
i know Carnage was takin the piss, thats why i said car setup was an understatment. as it will effect the whole system, that you will have to resetup the rear for the pivot point change. basically it will change the leverage of the amount it will change the camber when activated. so it will be either a camber change, or it will be a rod length change. i made one for a Xray T3, so i played with all different points, and it changes it so much, you will be surprised. Cranage , bring on the Banter... umm what you drive ? piece of cheese ? an outdated Muggin ? or one of the new breed $$ cars

Thanks Patto, yeah just looking at it and think you are right, the pivot point with the new car is much higher so i'm thinking longer rods too, and re-adjust camber to suit.
Just trying to figure out why Serpent have not included the camber plate specifically for the DLS, would have made it much easier.....

personally i would get the plate, and use the DLS one. i can send you my setup still if you like, and compare to what is different. worth a try.
