Ummm I've never had any issues with stripped gears. I still have the ones from the first 733.

Can't wait to get my hands on the TE very soon

the gears pictured are of a Team Magic guys, not a 733. Seems Azza is having an issue, but i think its a problem he is having with either clutch, or possibly his track conditions. its Hot in Australia guys, but in saying that i never had an issue with gears. so please dont read into that pic too much, i said what i said cause i used to Run Team Magic.

Yes the Photo was not from my pit bench it is just abit of sledging and fun between race mates ( Thanks Snowy ).

I will say to all the 733 lovers out there that my car is is very fast great to work on and i love it i am having a problem with the gear box and i will be out testing this weekend and recording clutch temps. while playing with different clutch shoes and gaps and tensions to see what i can come up with.

The issue is starting to get annoying with the stripping gears but the car is weapon fast at the moment and has been for a few months.
maybe i should back off alittle and it wouldn't stress the gear box as much???

I hope this gets resolved but im loosing faith unfortunatly.

But there seems to be plenty of racers out there not having this problem so there has to a reason( hopefully i find it )

other than that you can be assured that the 733 is extremely fast everything else for me has been very reliable and easy to tune and work on i love the car i just hate not finishing races because of stupif things like this

Hope you get the prob sorted Aza
Sounds like a massive pain in the rear end
I've been 1/8 buggying!!! Haven't had to deal with a 2speed in 2 months
The Vic Titles are the end of January though, so I'd better dust off the TE for some some running before then to see if any trans problems rear their head

Any interest in 2 painted bodies for a 733. I used one. The other only has paint. Xceed Audi and a blitz Altis. I would post pics but for some reason I can't from my iPhone. The used shell doenst have rips or bruises.

I use Savox SC-1251MG Low Profiles in both of my 733's, my F104 Pro and my TC02 Pro and not one problem so far :-)
I only have 1 car that doesn't run them and only because of torque requirements on 1/8 IC buggies

With a lightweight lipo my 733 TE weighs around 1738 grams. This is ready to race with DLS installed. I have no other lightweight options installed.

The TE is slightly lighter than the standard by maybe 5-10 grams.


Pass you soon...
