i ran the 733 for the first time today and i am impressed ! traction was low/ medium and i used DJ 's setup to start. only change i made was to use some older yellow long springs and as DJ said on bumpy / smooth track the car liked this change. the car is the easiest rolling car i have ever had. i used the new ( reverse flyweights) .4 gap 1.2 clutch tension .2 end gap with a plus12 and the opperation was flawless allowing the engine to rev-up better than ever. i ran better lap times than before at equal traction. i cannot wait to go run again

Hope this helps.

Thanks Dj, it makes sense, but now that say it

tank lids are the same as 720/966, so try a new lid. also give it time to settle in and seal.

Joey, leaving tomorrow for the Nats. We have plenty of tanks don't worry. Anyway, the new ones work fine, the rubber just need to settle in. Put a rubber band to hold the cap down for a few hours. This will accelerate the settle in process. Is the same cap as the 966, so there is no reason why it should not work
