So you may need to use the 733 bottom rear arms and uprights.

Can you explain which part doesn't work? I'm curious.

Thanks!

I stuck my 747 in the A-main @ GLC in Toledo,OH this weekend. The car was so easy to drive and extremely quick. Thank you Michael Salven


Pass you soon...

The front parts fit fine but the Ali parts that fit on the rear uprights need a little modification to make fit and you also need a front oneway and solid in the rear

Ive been racing with serpent driver and i gotta say his car is working.
This past weekend the car looked really fast and easy to drive. Seems like serpent has done very well with this design.

Lol, I would have been better with a blindfold on. SMH

All jokes aside, the car has been really good. I have been running mostly on medium/high bite. Car is really easy to drive and does what's asked of it well.
If anyone needs help, feel free to ask. I will be on the boards more often.
