I think a 53 and a 62 on first would be a great option for gears. Just to have more fine tuning. Not that it is needed, but would be great.

btw, anyone that has yet to assemble their kits, could do a favour to measure the size of the diff oring?
just make sure you do not strip or break the bit of plastic your screws go into on the diff... once that happens, it will leak...

the solution is to change to the v2 diff housing.....

It's really sad to see him go, on the brighter side we still have drivers here in the US that are very highly competitive. Serpent seems to be recruiting new talent and IMO a great addition would be Chris Tosolini. I personally would rather see toso joining our team as opposed to having Jiles for the worlds. (Hint Hint SerpentUSA)

However in this day, age and economy it's ALL about money. Had it been me I'd have done the same thing. However I honestly believe though that there are still drivers who have loyalty regardless of financial gain eg. DJ, Paolo, Swagger, Collari etc. No love lost but I feel kinda betrayed!!!!!

Just my $0.00 cents, recession guys can't afford the usual $0.02 cents sorry

With stock gears and my 353 tuned the 733 felt a little slower on top than my 720 but not by much. Out of the corners the 733 wins all day long.

I run the same motor. I use 17/61 and 23/55. With this combo you will get good bottom, mid and top. I typically use a 2630 with short header and 16%. Run time is good and power is great. Adjust the clutch based on traction. For low bite also use a 60 instead of 61 spur. Clutch for low bite use .4 to .5 gap. For high bite use .7 to .8 gap.

Hope this helps. Try it the next time at the track.

Hey Dj, can you post your setup from the Nats when you get a chance? I'd like to see how far off my setup is from yours.

I tried to upload here the setup from the serpent editable one, but it did not work. Check the serpent.com site in a few days. If it is not up then let me know and I will type it out here.

Just for you Mr Wayne; The traction was super high. I would not use this set-up normally. Too stiff in the front, but I was tring to make the car transition really fast for the chicanes.

Front
droop 0
stock sway bar
green springs layed down
2 hole piston 1,000 wt oil
car short and 2mm of actual caster or 4mm of clips (same thing)
-1 toe on each side
1.75 left and 1.5 right camber
4 ride height
37 shore 56mm - Twister (non light weight)
198 width

Rear
droop 3
2.3mm sway bar inner position
pink springs 2nd hole from bottom
3 hole piston 900wt oil
car short
+2 toe on each side
3.25 left camber and 2.75 right camber
5 ride height
camber link inner bottom on tower and inner on hub with 1mm shim
2 back screw out for more flex on the bottum of chassis. The ones that hold the motor mount thingy.
40 shore 58mm Twister (non light weight)
199 width

For normal traction I would use blue front spings, red rear springs and 2.5 rear toe. Also maybe flip the shock pistons front to rear. Just switch the spings, the shocks themselves are the same size.

If I missed anything, just ask. I leave out of town in the morning. Will be back Monday night. Will reply then.

Later,

DJ Apolaro
