Hi guys,

The bearing liners(weight savings there).
The motor mounts is different from 6.0 ver II as it sits higher now and the center bearing has the liner too.(weight reduction again) & isolate bearing away from any metal.(no glitch)
Conecting the suspension arm...... stay tune.This one that I'm building would have all the options for the car as the other one has only plastics parts on it.
I just need more time..... and doug for my electronics....

I just put my RC Lab 7 Even 6 up for sale in the for sale section on RC Tech. I am including in that a MVP and Matched 2000 saddle pack. (Pack I soldered just to fit our cars). Asking 150.00. It has the Shock tower upgrades, and a bunch of spare parts.

Ok..here's an update...the new car is very responsive.It's loaded with every options I can I get my hands on,it was under weight.
Need new tires and a new body very soon.Ran lots of packs on it and it's smooth.......................
Broke 1 ball end stud though...hit it really hard on the wall... melted my rear belt tensioner and strip the rear belt...too much power laid down.......Overall results is very pleasing.

good to hear chrisman. what made it underweight? and are you talking 53 ounces/1500 grams? or the 50 we run here on carpet? ok, i think i know.

mine was working awesome yesterday for practice. ran double diff setup for ozite with foams (scrapped the spool). really happy with the setup i found. i'm now using the alum 5* carriers, and moved camber link to kingpin. man, it felt good, with a slight push if i got out of the groove. i'll keep this setup for the rest of the carpet season. now i can focus on my driving.

btw - i know why they run steel outdrives on every oneway evermade. apparently they take abuse like crazy since there is no relief in one direction. especially important when you hit boards or other mishaps. my spool (alum) caused the blades to sever in one run and the pins just gouged into the outdrive slots like a knife through butter. oh well. live and learn. time for steel! but i'll have a buddy make them for me if i ever do that.

later.

Hey Seaball,

You know what savings I got for the screws....As for electronic side...it's all really small components like Esc Quantum Com,receiver (smallest you can find) etc....I still uses the 300M body with a molded hard wing now.

So I see you moved the frt upper link to the King pin....the new car,uses it .It uses the optional 3* caster c hubs.Excellent for turns.Still have frt oneways on...I love it.I can dive in really hard and even apply full brakes.I was really amazed how it really handled last Sat.All I need now is heavier oil,frt sway bars and I should be able to gain a lap or 2.later..

Hi guys, time I got back to looking at this forum.

Our indoors championship up here in Scotland is going well, currently there is a Lab in second position but the gap to first is getting smaller every week, thanks to a Matrix V10R motor from Modeltech, aka RC Lab uk. For a small club we have quite a few Labs, 4 out of about 18 regular drivers. I had a bad start to the indoor season myself but this second half has been better since I have my car setup well now. I was challenging the guy who drives the Lab thats in second at the moment, when we had a fun night last night. I've just bought myself a Matrix V10R since it is going so well for the fast guy, my GM3 is a good motor but it's getting old and has had a charred armature for over a year.

In the uk there aren't so many carpet tracks and only a few months a year where we can run outdoors so tracks are quite slippy. This means we use softer springs, I'm currently using HPI reds on the front and greens on the rear, just a little softer than kit. Even outdoors on tarmac I wouldn't go much harder, I need all the grip I can get. It's been said by a lot of drivers that the lab is more suited to stock racing, it does seem to give good speed with stock motors, but here is Scotland last summers outdoor modified season was won by a Lab.

Herminator,

Nice to see you dropping by..... Keep up he good job.Rubbing dr to dr handles is what I call racing.I'm still using the P2KS.They are consistent and so far gives me the power I need to keep up with the top fast guys.Only thing the lap doesn't like is GM3 motors..it gives me a lot of glitches no matter what I do to the motor or receiver.Changed the motor..everything went away.I race stock when there's not many mod guys to run.Otherwise mod is my class.Indoor racing on carpet is alot of challenge.Lap times are faster and wear on tires (foam) incredible.

Hey..thats racing... Herminator,got any pictures that we can share.Track....cars..etc?..

hey fellas,

i just thought. chrisman's right. we post our labs, why not our clubs or tracks. here' my winter carpet site. it's a weird panoramic shot, but you'll get the point.

it's a pretty big, sweeping layout. we rollout our monsters around 1.05

later.
