I've found that temperature affects the plastics on any car. What was the temp when you were at the track?

the hit to the wall might be harder than you thought.
this weekend racing at the winternats we had some days that were in the 40's & this track all the barriers are steel & I saw some 733 smack the walls & they were still able to continue.
any car will break especially while the hit to the wall was on power while you were steering can easily press more stress on the servo saver sometimes if you anticipate the mistake & left off the throttle you get lucky
good luck

Honestly i don`t think bigtaco is exaggerating at all.
I also had the 733 for one race and promptly sold it after that, the plastic parts on the serpent are nowhere near as durable as the kyosho and the nt1. Sorry if i offended anyone but that`s just my feelings about the 733, great car just pretty fragile. Now let me tell you something else, i have had no experience with the new harder more durable parts so i can`t tell you anything about those.
