Mine rubs but this is not a problem, If you want you can just grind off a little material.

also, im using new JR servos with grommets. this makes the mounts a bit thick and changes the alignment of fr and rr linkages. do i need to use the servo grommets?
thanks

Well if after bending it, it was straight then no problem my rear on was that way and I resolved it in a similar manner. I generally use grommets however I only have them on the throttle not the steering. No issues so far.

However am not by ANY means the end all Be all guy to go to. When it comes to setup and chassis tunning Mr Morganti and Mr Apolaro should be your go to guys.

Well guys I got to run the car for the first time this weekend...

small changes and you noticed them almost immediately.
I have heard you guys say the sweet spot was very large
and I agree. My overall first impression of the car was
happiness - no more traction roll!!! This is the set up I ran
at Ft Myers and I am SURE it is going to change again - just
wanted to share with you guys

You can tighten the servo saver a bit to raise the metal up a bit, if the belt scratches the plastic parts, just use sand paper or a cutter to file it out a tiny bit. Mine is not touching after the modification.

I have been looking for engines as well. Being out of the states right now, I cannot see what most guys are running for the on road curcuit. I am tossed up between the novarossi 353, the RB Concept touring 9 onroad competition, or the RB Concept touring 9 RC on road competition engines.

so what is everyones verdict on the car after a few runs?

any broken parts, any wear in the drivetrain (belts, pulleys etc)?

how is the slop in the arms, linkages, etc? i noticed after a few runs of my rrr, everything was very sloppy.

also, those that are speaking highly of the car after running it, are you comparing it to the 720? anyone switch from NT1, RRR, MTX4 and run the car yet? Would like to see some input.


finally, what shock and diff oils come closest to the serpent ones? i can't find serpent shock or diff oils

thanks.

justin.

I switched from the 720 and this car is a lot better all around. That sweet spot is as big as everyone is saying. Tried lots of changes on the car and so far nothing I've done has upset the car. It really is a great car.

Shock oils are different Serpent 40wt is 1000cst, 35wt is 600cst, diff oil may be the same across the board but double check below.

X2 I also have a 720 and this new 733 is kind of making the 720 obsolete. I have tons of spares for my 720 TONS!!!. I agree on the sweet spot, it's just great!!! Last race @ local track I finished 3rd, 2 NT1's finished before me but that was only my second time at the track with the 733 and my set up wasn't 100% I'm sure that will change as I get more familiar with the car.

I also have a NT1 but i'm waiting on parts for it (rear diffs) once I get it running again I will compare them and post.
