Hi Howard, stock gearing is fine for a Nova based engine. If you use a Picco based engine, than you will need to go 23-55 and keep the first gear the same

You have two options. Either use the same rotor as the 966, or use the Xceed rotor for the NT1 ( i am using this one. I did space the brake pad 1mm ( the outside one), since the disk is thinner than the 1/8 scale. But is smaller in diameter, brake power is the same and rotating mass is a lot less!

Default Temporary Fix

Hello Guys:

Locally we just got a temporary fix for this problem.

I friend just got a soldering tip, and fuse the broken part back. He disassembled the tank and with the soldering tip he melt both parts and fuse it together. After that he assembled it back and put a little spacer on the spring to make it have more pressure. It worked for him and my car and stop the leak.

What I did was to first set the cap and one side of the tank, partially insert the pin.Then put the spring,and then push it in with a tool that have enough surface so it doesn't pop out trought the side. Then align one side ofthe spring and push the pin. Then with a screw driver push the side that need to be align. I prefer to use the side that didn't broke as my first side to work with. Then last the other side that was fix.

I hope I explained well. If any doubt I have more to fix at the store so can take pictures if you need them.

so just to confirm, all new 733 kits ordered from today onwards will have the updated tank that doesn't break?

RCMARKET, can you confirm if all new 733 shipped will now have corrected tanks??

I think you shoudl wait for the official statement from serpent. That they are ready to ship. So far I Understand that they are working on that, so is no probable that new kits that were put together last week have the new tank.

That's with the Spektrum temp telemetry, Protoform Stratus 3.1 body, JR dig servos. The battery pack is heavy. Maybe I should have used less paint?
