Seems like it comes with more plastic doesn't it though? The RB7 I mean.

Debating between this and the ET410 (when it comes out). At $369, I'm pretty sure I'm going to get this. Well done Kyosho, price DOES matter!

Will the same wheels that work for the RB6.6 work for this as well?

I have no idea on the progress of this or whether its possible, but its done in 8th scale so you can buy premounts and they fit everything.

Kyosho use a weird offset so if these rules ever come in then they will definitely be changing.

But it doesn't look like the RB7 will be changing from the ZX6 / RB6 cars as it wasn't mentioned anywhere, and it wouldn't surprise me if these kind of rules never get through anyway

I thought the offset was same as Associated, but the front wheels are thinner so the hex nuts donít fit properly?

I don't know about Associated but as one of the few running a Kyosho at my club I found it hard to find anyone with wheels that would fit mine so i could try out different tyres. Luckily someone use to have a Lazer so had a bunch, but they were the only one. Most were running Durango, HB and Losi from memory. It was then that I was told about Kyosho being different to most others.

Associated
Yokomo
Schumacher
Kyosho

All so close as makes no difference and consider 'the' standard by many.

Is there any build tips or things you guys were doing with the RB6.6 that weren't in the manuals that you anticipate doing on the 7 to make it faster or perform better?
