Got to see one run last Sunday at Crystal Park while I was out there praticing and I must say that car is FAST.

Another gentlemen that was pitting in front of me was building his at the track and that car is beautiful. Completely new car from the ground up.

Once I get comfortable with my 720 I will replace it with a 733 with no doubt.

I'm sure everyone that has theirs is enjoying them.

mine is rubbing as well. but its not a big deal. will probably 'skin' the belt after the first run and all will be well. does not bind the drivetrain at all - at least mine.

Mine rubbed also but it's nothing to worry about. It barely touched on mine but after 1 or 2 tanks my drive line was very free. I rechecked that spot and there was no damage to the belt.

Fatboy from your pictures it seems your left Toe link in more on the inside rather than the outside like the right side.

I should make toe adjustments interesting

Just another tip. We are using associated diff lube. The small clear bottle for the one-way bearing. It helps it last even longer than normal.

Another tip!

Don't super glue your tongue to either of the 2-speed springs.

I heard that was the ticket to a perfect shift point.

The associated lube is only to use with the new one-ways. Not the old ones.
