The 733 TE as has all the latest hop-ups. other than the ultra clutch. The 733 TE will run great out of the box.


Pass you soon...

So guys trying to use my brain but cant seem to work this out.

1) What is the DLS for ( why would you run the DLS )
2) Have you done a compare from DLS to no DLS back to back??
3) Do you think it makes a difference and How?????

Thanks heaps guys
Aaron

1) The DLS increases rear grip and seems to help with tire wear.

2)Yes and at every round of British Nationals decided against running it.

3) yes it makes a differance but so far i have found it slows the direction change of the car and found that on the limit the car would break away rather than a controlled drift, Also on bumpy or tracks where kurbs can be ridden the DLS would feel less consistent (Due to the fact both wheels have a direct effect on each other).

My final opinion is it would be good on high speed smooth flowing tracks which we dont have many of in the uk so i dont see it making a return on my car in 2012 season.

DLS has it's place. My home track is little too bumpy to run the DLS. But I do like having the option.

Pass you soon...

I haven't used the DLS yet either, but was concerned that the Lilydale surface will be a bit bumpy to run it, but after chatting to Patto, I'm gonna give it a try in practice and see what it feels like

I have run the DLS for the last couple of race meets and i have gone back to back with and without the DLS.

what i have noticed.

The DLS didn't give me anymore grip than i had on a dusty slippery track without the DLS had more rear grip.
When the track gripped up or i raced on a track with goop on the surface the DLS was great it allowed the car to be over gripped in the rear and used the grip very well like the car rotated so well with the extra track grip and the car felt like it would slide into corners and carry momentum through a corner but on a slippery track i cant get the rear end to grip or is there something didnt do like more rear toe/camber than normal thats what im trying to work out cause i had slight more grip without the DLS but with the DLS the car rotated so much better. would anyone agree with what i am saying.

Also is there anything different that people have done when running the DLS example more camber or toe or less/more droop?????

Thanks guys trying to get my head around the DLS and the best place to use this system.
Regards
Aaron

I would start off with Scott Kimbrow's DLS setup and tune from there.
Good luck..

Ran the Australian Titles last week at Lilydale
The TE chassis performed amazingly & the SL6 was great once dialed!!!
Too bad I can't say the same about the STS Engines
By Sunday the car's on rails but on eng#2, rebuild #1 after snapping a crank on eng#1, burning a piston out pre-detonating on eng#2. With the rain, humidity & rebuilt engines on 3 of the 5 days it was difficult to get tune. The car felt doughy in the mids out of corners which really affected lap times
Tested DLS on Wednesday, but was happier with the balance without & didn't have much track time with rain delays so went with what I knew
To sum it up, I learnt more then I'd learn in a year of clubbys. Can't wait for the Vic Titles in January!!
Big thanks to Ric for pointing me in the right direction with setup on Wednesday too

When and where is the Serpent Tour? Sounds like I may have to put that on my list of events to run
I'm planning next year to run the Vics and would like to make the Nats too!
REALLY excited about the potential of the car! It was handling amazingly
The engines really limited me, but that's what you get for $80 each

My 733 (non TE) ran around 1730-1745 grams no dls, tires trued to 57.5 and 59.5mm. Normal body. I use a faily light lipo batttery at only 42 grams. I would believe the TE to be a little lighter with the new gearbox. I have not built my 733 TE.

Pass you soon...

You use standard or low profile servos ? Good weight for Roar races, but club guys run alot lower weight than that....
