how about using the serpent cleaning gum as diff oil to have the "spool" effect?

i did this on my M03R, it seems ok... but speed of these minis are nothing to touring cars...

this is true if you want to lock the diff use silly putty. Thats what people do with monster trucks

Hello from France,

I have been driving a mugen mtx4 since 2006, and yet I am waiting my new 733.
I have a question to all the users off this new car :
Did you use threadlock (loctite) in order to secure some assembly on the car?? Or did you just good tighten the screws?
If you use threadlock, on which parts did you apply it?

thanks a lot, sorry for my poor english

have a good day,

Julien

I just got my new 733 today. This serpent is definitely not for beginners, I think serpent could have done a little better with the manual but nothing too bad. In about 2hrs I pretty much finished with the front and rear assemblies.

DJ thanks for posting your set up so fast!!! Just in time for my build... Good starting point.

No problems with tight parts here, only one problem so far is one of my rear bulkheads came with out one of the pin that makes it sit in place on the chassis. Took me 2 mins to fix with an hpi pin from a Savage and dreamel tool.

NO STICKERS???

I hope to finish in time before Sunday's race at Leisure Hours Raceway in Joliet for the Byron challenge.

I used threadlock on every screw that touches metal.

Anyone going to run a Lipo? I bought one but it's not quit narrow enough. It rubs the belt a little even when I pushed it all the way against the tank. I think I'm just going to run a standard Nimh unless someone suggests something different. It's the Align RX pack 1200mah, nice pack little too wide.

I'm going to try ProTek lipo pack but have no idea on what regulator to choose. I've recently had a really BAD experience with MuchMore 5A.
