"Layed down" means it's mounted in the lowest possible hole in the shock tower.

I would think anything close to the kit short blue spring would be in the range you would want. That would mean pink (one softer) and purple (one firmer).

Here's the chart:

New Spring ratings

N/mm lb/inch
White 2,3 13,0
Yellow 2,8 16,0
Orange 3,4 19,5
Red 4,1 23,5
Pink 4,9 28,0
Blue 5,8 33,0
Purple 6,8 39,0
Green 8,0 45,5
Grey 9,0 51,5
Black 10,0 57,0

The 733 alows you to change the wheelbase front and rear. Theres clips in the rear hingepins that you can put on the back or infront of the arm. You can also do the same with the front of the car. in the front you have to make sure to change the caster clips(mounted on the upper arm) or your caster will change.

Quick question for you guys, have anyone on here tried putting the sirio power clutch in the 733? Does it work? obvioulsy i gotta use the kyosho pinions, as the serpent pinions will simply not thread on the sirio clutch bell, as the threadding is different.The pitch on the serpent pinions looks identical to the kyosho pinions. Trust me i have measured both of them side by side, they`re identical in size and pitch. your help would b greatly appreciated.

I'm just curious as to why are you trying to put a sirio clutch on the 733?

I`ve had all the car makes, from a to z. NT1, Mugen3 and 4, KYOSHOrrr and the 720, and now i got this piece of art called the 733. In all of my tests that i had done, the sirio power clutch, just gives me that much extra, on the nt1 it gave me app 1.5 to 2 tenths a lap, on the kyosho i got 1 to 1.5, it`s just that the sirio just feels that much more responsive. Thats why i`m asking you experts this question.Please no bashing, i love my new ride, its just that i`m looking for that little bit extra, you guys know what i mean right.Thanks guys.

I don't think that any bashing was intended. IMO the best clutch system is the Serpent. The new red shoe by serpent maybe a better choice. Have you tried the the clutch that came with the car? if not you willl be plesantly surprised!!!!

Hi, I am fixing my new 733 and wondering if the Futaba 9254 servos would be good for it. I have 2 9402, but they are quite old and don't wanna to use them. Thanks in advance. Dayday

I wouldn't use the 9254, they're only rated at 4.8 volts and it only has 47oz/in of torque. The 9402s are better, they are just analog. I'm running 9452's throttle and steering and they fit and work really well.
