Any one find out if the car is balanced around a lipo pack or a cell pack?
And how are your tires wearing? I heard some where this car is better on tires and can run same shore all around and not over wear the rear.

well the rear tire wear on mine does not seem so fantastic as claimed.... similiar to my other cars....

however maybe my setup is not perfect yet as my rear sides ard sometimes and hence might contribute to the wear...

3 questions please:

a. what is the weight of the 733 ready to run? are they abit heavy or abit on the light side? i am considering whether to buy low profile servos but if its abit on the skinny side, may stick to standard size servos.

b. does the 733 have an option for a heavier clutch spring? if so, what is the part number? i want to get more options to tune the clutch.

c. will a standard size reciever pack fit? (i have a couple that i used in the mtx4 and rrr - are these the same size?

thanks.

Guys,

I think you should consider these LiFePo4 packs as reiceiver packs for the 733 and other gas cars.
They have only 6.6 Volt, which means there's no voltage regulator needed and the y have the exact same dimensions as 5 cell 2/3 A packs.
The are very robust compared to lipos.

I have two packs. I put one in my son's 966 and one is in my MTX4-R, where it fit into the MMod aluminum holder. (5 cell packs fit only VERY tight into that thing.
These packs hold their voltage over 90% of their discharge and are 40 grams lighter than NiMh.
Klaus bought 4 packs, since he felt that the belt is coming too close in his 733's with a 5 cell pack.

The car is not too light. With lipo and small tires you will just make weight. With a normal battery you will probably be about 40grams over. I am guessing, but I think I am close. Also depends on your electronics.

That pack is 30mm wide, same width as a 2/3A nimh. Anything wider than 30mm is scary close to the belt. 35mm hits the belt(some of these lipo RX packs are a tad wide). I double side taped the battery to the mount then wrapped it in tape. Like dJ said slam the battery all the way against the tank as far as you can get it.

Ok first impression......................WOW!

First the car has lots of steering. It really does feel like an electric touring car in the way it changes direction.

Tire wear is apparently different as well. I tested in a low traction condition and the tire wear was nothing compared to my S720. Don't no why.

Bodies: for me Stratus all the way. The Blitz Altis 2.3 has so much steering it's not even funny, rear very twitchy. Civic is really stable but I lost some steering. The stratus was much more balanced on this car. I didn't make any setup changes between bodies so still have some more testing to do. Different tracks, traction, this could change.

Ok guys not picking on serpent but i was just wondering why doesn't serpent come out with some options when the car is released like the one way with the locking pins i mean i don't like running a spool because if you ever get in sticky situations were you have to use the brakes the car spins out but runninga spool seems to make a car easier to drive bht this is just an opinion

I have always had good results with Stratus 3.1.
Building the 733 I find contrary to the pictures I must mount the center body post in front of the shock tower, rather than behind. Has any one measured the off set below the windscreen to drill this post hole, It's always been a helpful little crutch.
