I linked those pics from ebay since thats where I got it, was about half the price of a new kit yet it has most of the hop ups available, infact the only major thing is lack of threaded shocks, but using spacers is more precise anyway.

Running it indoors on slippery wooden floors I'm strugling for grip, I've got it working better but the combination of a cheap radio and lack of steering linkage options is making the steering far too aggresive. I'm going to drill a hole on the servo saver/horn closer to the center, just might create some clearance problems though.

hey freaks,
i finally ran the car this weekend. i must say that it runs so well. yesterday was a day of practice/setup since our track is permanent and the indoor champs are coming up. i put about 8 packs through it on a fairly tight ozite track. my base setup was about the stiffest that i had seen out there. 22/40 front and 18/40 rear. the car has so much steering both on and off power. i liked the balance though. i'm used to a car with some push, so i went even stiffer. still gobs of steering. after practice yesterday and racing today i ended up with this setup:

front:

spring 26.5lb
oil 40wt
toe 0deg
ride 4mm
camber -1deg
castor 7deg
droop 5mm
sway none
tire trc plaid

rear:

spring 22lb
oil 40wt
toe 1.5deg
ride 4.5mm
camber -1.5deg
castor -
droop 5mm
sway none
tire trc purple

i also ran full time 4wd with a volvo s40 body. the car was really neutral like this. it seems like this setup is drastically stiffer than anything i've seen for the 7even. all the fast guys with tc3's run 40/30 on our track, so i guess we must have some grip out there. the rclab wanted to roll/lift out of the chicane with the softer springs. i did get even tire wear though, which is something i shoot for if i can. thoughts on the setup anyone. softer with swaybars? i have no complaints at this point. i dropped 9 thenths off of my lap times and i'm just getting better. i don't really want to change a thing, but i'm puzzled by the stiff setup. for those metric guys it's 470g/mm front and 400g/mm rear.

by the way, the plastic on this kit is garbage. i think it's really just hard wax. i kept losing front hubs when the lower king pin would tear out with just a brush. a body post snapped (when i dropped the car off of the table). it turns white when you cut it or thread it! lucky there's not much of it on the stock kit.

well, this has been a...usually long post. please comment. as promised pics are coming, i just need to find where the photographer put them.

later, chris.

Default CAMBER LINK

Has anyone used the long front camber link on the front? How did you find it?

Has anyone made any changes from the kit set up? Would like to hear what you have done and how it has changed the car.

Hello FTD,

Yes,I had my frt camber link mounted on the inner shock tower hole and had extented it all the way to the outer C hub kingpin.This is a nice change as I find it not twitchy to drive.It's really stable but travel on the frt suspension is limited.C hub will hit the Camber link if it compressed too far.A little sanding to the c hub would help it alittle.Remember to use lunsford tie rods as it's much more longer and stronger.

Ever since I had changed it to that way,I never went back to the stock location.Using the stk tierods is possible but be carefull as it will break them from hard compression of the frt suspension.

chrisman, ftd, and others,
i've finally got documentation of my labors. ftd, i've changed a few things from the stock kit w/o even having run it yet. so i can't comment on the changes. none of them will yield staggering results anyway. i've posted below how i felt about the car, and what my setup was. i'm gonna use valuable server space in the next few posts, please comment if you fellas feel like it.

below is the finished product, before i ran it. ummm... what's different than stock?

- 17/37 pullies and belts
- rpm and xpress ballends
- aluminum battery posts and servo mounts
- corally front tensioner
- 96 tooth spur to drop motor height
- c/f shock towers
- xpress threaded shock bodies (and shafts because they're longer)
- custom c/f bumper plate and aluminum mounts
- xpress cvd's
- cvd blade conversion
- all stainless hex fasteners
- hangar 9 titanium camber links
- camber links in new location

i think that's it for now. chrisman...am i leaving anything out? aluminum cariers and hubs will be in the pit box pending durability. thanks for all your help. a proud moment it was this weekend past. enjoy!

plate:
i was hoping for a seriously durable car, so why not? plus it keeps the body posts shorter and straighter.

front end:
just a good view of the camber link locations. still thinking about going all the way to the kingpin with the outer ballend, but i may reserve that hole for a torque rod in the future. as is, the links are as long or longer than with the mod that chrisman runs. note, the amb wire under everything. i'm sure that i'll be kicking my self for that at some point, but it's clean.
