All I can say is that DJ's car was on rails at Chaplin this past Sunday! His car was very well balanced! I cant wait to go back out there and try this setup! So much info in so little time, we'll be back for more lessons at Kissimmee!

I ran the set-up DJ first suggested. I rolled the first few laps nice and slow, to get used to how the car handled. This thing stuck to the track like glue!. Each lap I was getting on the throttle more and more. It ended up being a practice day at the track, so I was running with 1/8th and 1/10 scale cars. My 733 gave ALL of the 1/8th scale guys a great run, and as for the 1/10 scale cars, bu-bye. This car handles like its on rails, and the Novarossi 353 has the power to push it to the limits I love it!
Glad you made it back safe. I've been there twice. What track did you run on?

thats it.
you will find the last 2 and first 2 springs on the list are extra. the spring kits dont come with them. you will get orange, upto green , but in saying that, i have had 3 sets of springs in packets, and they all seem to be different with what you get in them. i doubt white or yellow would be used much , and the grey and black for extreme high grip silky smooth track situations.

Is this also true for the 720? I want to upgrade to the new springs, but doubt between the long or short springs in the rear.
