​​​​​​ Kyosho have recognised that these are weak and there is now an updated version in the shops, part number LA387B (The B designates an updated part) The Exotek parts are only available in 10 degrees so it depends on your setup as to if you could run these.

Can't wait to give my new ZX7 a few laps this weekend! I'll add a pic when the forum allows, it wouldn't allow me to add it.

I run it that way, too...it's easier to place the wires from the speedo to the motor, IMO.

Anyone else having the problem with the front and rear universal swing shafts start binding after a few packs and not moving free anymore? It seems like the pin is moving against the collar and starts causing the binding...After removing the collar and putting the pin back in it's position the universals move free again. It doesn't matter if I run them with grease or without...
I don't have that problem with the same universals in my RB7.

For those who are interested...
I just left away the set screw that secures the pin and now it's all good.

I’m considering ordering this for indoor carpet. Should I wait until after the worlds or any reason why not to pull the trigger on this now?
