The 733 has bring me back to racing, i left it 3 years ago to go and fly helis... Now im back !!!

Im going to buy everything again since my 710 is now obsolete... my budget will accept mid prices, good quality (not top dollar)

What would you recommend ???

Engine: im planning on using a brand new RB Rody i never used or a Brand New OS 12TZ 5 port.

Should i get a new engine ???

Servos: i might buy Futaba's s3050 their mid price is affordable, would this work properly ??

TX and RX: i dont want cheap Spektrum !!! JR is out or surface racing ??? I cant afford the 3pk 2.4 or the 4pk 2.4.... But i do want the 2.4 technology, what would you suggest ?

What lipo does the 733 use ??

I would really really appreciate your help, im really trying to keep a low to mid budget.

God bless
Alf

I'd run the engines you have for now

Servos are a good choice. good torque good price

As for spares, get the Suspension set part # 804175 (I call it the crash pack), it comes with all the suspension arms including the front and rear upright in one package, also get a set of complete drive belts and as for the diff, just squeeze the 2 housing together really tight by hand then tighten the 4 screws.
