Thank you sir. I'll check for those tonight.

Any opinions on the center diff? I have one for it, seems to leak like crazy though...

I don't run a center diff... I would rebuild it, use a new seal, put a small amount of green slime on it and don't overfill it. The center diff is basically the same as the front and rear, I have no problems with leaking diffs so far.

I'll give it a run with the slipper first. Rebuild the diff and put it aside for now.

My winning Setup from the last race on EOS carpet. Took the win in a field of 30 cars. Car is very forgiving, fast and easy to drive.

Checked for those afford mentioned O-rings. They are present. Drivetrain is smooth, car runs rather fast for a 13.5 Tekin Spec-R. Handles awesome, car seems very predictable. loses steering after hard braking. No clue why.

All I know is, I want one! Kyosho is sold out of them and they are not making any more for another few months, so they say. Therefore, the only ones left are the ones in the stores. I'm curious if Kyosho is coming out with a new model next year. I was told, by a factory driver, that the new owners have some big plans brewing.

I just pulled the trigger on a ZX7.
Was thinking I'd at least get the aluminium shock caps and perhaps the aluminium rear hubs to start with.
If anyone knows, can you mount the servo on the opposite side straight out of the box?
Looking forward to get this built and running alongside my RB7.

Yes, you can mount the servo on both sides.

Thanks mate 👍
Are there any essential things to look for, other than the front hubs?
As no one stocks Kyosho in my area, I will need to keep spares.
Was thinking to have some front arms and hubs in the pit box.
I'm happy the rear is the same as the ultima.

I broke the front shock tower holder twice (LA353).
