I have 2 733.
One with front diff and one with front solid axle.
Yesterday both threw the front belt. Is that just bad luck or are they stretched or what?
What can I do to prevent this?

Never seen this happen. I have snapped a belt. How does the alignment look to the front drive pulley? How is the tension on the belt? The 733 with a diff; do you have the small spacers installed on both sides? I never ran a spool so; I have no advice on that.

Do you have the clip and side of the pulley on its place?

Usually the 2nd position from the front works. If you have spool and orange belt you might want to use the 2 tighter position. What are your front tires doing while braking? Do they stop? If so, decrease your brake EPA also.

Hello Andy,

1; you can upgrade your current Serpent clutch with the Xceed spring and nut (the Xceed spring is too tight on the Serpent nut). If you want to adjust the clutch from the outside easier you can also use the Xceed SPT bell.
2; I think you can use both
3; End of this month.

I'm not sure. But I think Serpent America sells pieces parts for the Exceed clutch.

Default new 733 parts

I have it on good authority that the new gearbox is similar to the 1/8th and comes with the side bracket as well.
