No Alex it is RC SLOW MARKET. They have been told this many times & done nothing about it

It can take me about 1 hour just to order things. I would buy MORE products off them but their web site is too SLOW

Cheers Daza

Default belts

are the orange belts more lasting than the black ones?

my rear black belt broke just after about 5tanks. my front and side black belts are beginning to have lots of fibres 'coming out'.
stuff from the belts can be seen sticking to the middle pulleys.

any other brands of belt can fit the 733?

There is all day and night difference in lifetime between the two. Orange belts are strong enough.

Here's the theory;
Simply put the MORE ANGLED (inside wheel is turning in more compared to the outside wheel) - less agressive = good for wide open corners and sweepers. Smooth, predictable steering. A good example of this is Homestead

LESS ANGLED (inside whee is turning in less compared to the outside wheel)- More Agressive = good for tight corners or technical track. For me I have found that the car is very reactive this way especailly on power!. A good example of this is MDI or Ft Myers

So to answer your question further back (linkages more parellel= Less angle=more agressive= more on power)

*These were MY findings

just got back from the AU Nats. first time i ever run the 733 on a track i never raced, and grip conditions i never seen before. pretty high grip.
yes the orange belts are good, the low friction roll better, but wouldnt use for a long final. they start to frey then let go pretty quickly. the car is good. kit oils not so great on high grip , used the front kit oil in the rear, and some 120,000 W oil in the front. also had a oneway lock on solid, couldnt get it off. didnt break a thing on the car all week, but first corner of 1/4 final broke a front arm, but combination of rain and lower grip caused it. stock gearing worked fine, run time was an issue, after not finishing 2 qualifiers due to running out, decided to go 2 stops. this hurt as i lost time over others but lap times were good.
the event got rained out , but learnt alot about the car.
