That really depends on your traction but you should be safe with 38f/38r with box setup.

Default Persistent tank leak

I have had problems with fuel leaking out of the filler cap of my 733 I have even removed the tank from the car and left upturned with fuel in for 24hrs hoping the O-ring would soften, no luck.
So I removed the cap spring and replaced with a slightly larger spring from a NTC3 low profile tank. Result leak cured tank can now hold pressure with not a hint of air leaking around the filler cap.

send it back to the hobby shop. Serpent agreed to replace it with a new and improved fuel tank.

You have to get the serpent shock building tool, it makes or easier to build all 4 shocks with the same rebound.

Nice, I talked to the guys at Murnan yesterday, gonna pick one up, cant wait to rip it up with it. Almost done putting the kit together. Everthing on this kit fits so well together. Its all compact and everthing seems to flow. Well its backto building, have fun getting that motor singing

shock shaft all way out, then do the retainer up half way, then when oil is coming out, push the shock shaft halfway down. then slowly tighten the retainer up. it works for me.

Use a 3mm and a 1mm castor clip put them at the bottom of the shock and fill the shock with oil put shock together then slowly push in shock till the castor clips hit the shock body and then tighten the cap Paolo showed me this trick works everytime
