Thanks for the response however I think you misunderstood what I said. The tip of the pipe touches the steering linkage not the manifold.

When you want to be the first in having a new product and when the change is as big as it is the 733 from 720, you now you have this possible situation, in my case been in a country without a dealer is even worth, but that is part of the cost of been first to have it.

I must say that even with my tank been broke (I fix it temporally), I am very happy with this car; I have no regret not even with the tank problem.

The improvement of the car compare to the 720 is big, I have put more than 25 tanks in the car (733) and every time I test it I am happier, I am using Dj, initial Set Up recommendation, in a Low traction technical Parking lot track, is working grate, my 720 is grate and I do have a very good set up, but it took a lot of time an work to have it, if a change a small part, the car (720) will change dramatically, not in the case of the 733, it takes small changes and the car (733) does small changes, so you can really play with the set up`, with no trauma.

You have to admit, that Serpent have rush to have this car out in to the market, this always creates problems, like Software’s there are always people who like to be the first one to play with it, and they are the ones who give recommendation to the company to fix bugs, same with this Hobby.

Look I will have to buy me tank, because RC-Musroom will not replace it, and I do not regret it a bit, I would had been unhappy in reading all the excellent comments people are talking about the car and not been part of it.
As I said in 3hobby, we Serpent lover have now a winner, here in Panama Kyoshoo and Mugen driver are really looking into the car.

If you love your 720 this new 733 will give you a change of heart the first time you drive it! I have well over $1000 on upgrades and spares for my 720... I'm considering selling it all and investing on 733 parts.

If I go higher in the rear will it make the car more lose in the back or less?

If you go heavier on the rear diff. It will give you more on power steering/rotation. In effect it will be more loose.

DJ, I have a technical question, in my 720 (I am using same combination in the 733)), I am using tires 37 front & 40 rear, when I switch 40, 40 or 40, 37, the car will not handles as good as the 37 front 40 rear.

What will be the explanation for this?

As I always said I am not an expert in the technical mater

Thanks

RCPANAMA

Our kit was the same with the weights drilled on the wrong side (leading instead of trailing). We tried the clutch like that at the end of a race day just run some laps and its ordinary.

No major drama, we just used a new clutch shoe and cut them the right way.

when you run a softer front the tire wear is more even through your run. It also gives more steering. Therefore when you run a harder tire in the front the steering is less and the rear tires wear faster. This creates more rear tire wear and gives the car front whell drive.

Hope this helps.
