I have not driven a 733 yet waiting for Paolo to let me take it for a spin
After watching a lot of 733 @ the Nationals I must say it transitions very well & looks really smooth on the track more like an electric touring car.
Good luck to all that have 1 & hopefully I can get 1 soon to enjoy the fun

We didn't let him go. From what I understand he only signed a two race deal. Bumod and the Worlds.

Hello,

I still used the WC gears/bell but "old" spare parts not the new ones coming with the 733.

I used the kit gears for the entire week including the final. Hardly any wear on the spurs or the pinions. This is the best drive line out of all the cars I've ran. NO stripping issues at all.

I had the same problem and solved it by changing to a shorter collet between engine and flywheel.

not sure. i use the serpent gear program. from the site. also the outline of the 733, it has teh pulley sizes, so i put them into the program. seems a little less top end, but bottom ratio is greatly improved.

i am yet to even run my cars. first run will be Nationals in a few weeks time

Default diffs leaking

anyone had their front and rear diffs leaking?

when i had mine assembled; they were fine, no leaks. however after i run the car 2 days later, it started leaking. i'm sure that they were not over filled.

other than using rtv, any other fixes?

btw, anyone that has yet to assemble their kits, could do a favour to measure the size of the diff oring?
