THE NEW 7.7 WOULD HAVE MORE ROOM FOR ALL THE ELECTRONICS AS THE PREVIOUS VERSION IS A LITTLE TIGHT FOR THEM.THE BULK HEADS,MOTOR MOUNTS AND STEERING POST ARE HIGHER THAN THE PREVIOUS ONES.

DIFFS OUTDRIVES ARE MADE OF MOLDED PLASTIC INSTEAD OF THE ALUMINIUM OUTDRIVES.THEY ARE NICE AND SMOOTH TOO.BLADE CONVERSION ON THIS WOULD BE EXCELLENT AS THEY HAVE LESS UNSPRUNG ROTATIONAL MASS. COOL..

FRT DRIVE STILL USES THE FRT SUPER LIGHT WEIGHT ONEWAY DIFFS SAME RELIABILITY AS THE VER 6.0.

NICEST PART OF THE CAR IS THE NEW CHASSIS WHICH LAY THE BATTERIES MORE TOWARDS THE REAR AND THE NEW BATTERY TRAYS.THIS ALSO GIVES OTHER RACER THE CHOICE OF HAVING A STICK CONFIG,AS SOME CLUBS ONLY ALLOWED STICK PACKS ONLY.SPENT ALL THE MONEY ON NICE CELLS AND THE LAST THING YOU WANT IS TO GET THE CELLS SHORTED AND DAMAGES TO THE CELLS FROM SCRAPING THE GROUND.

GRAHITE ALL AROUND ON THE PRO VERSION IS THE WAY TO GO BUT GETTING THE ENTRY LEVEL ONE IS AS GOOD TOO.JUST PRICED DIFFERENTLY

HERMINATOR WELL SAID....

PRO3RACER01,

GOING WITH A TOTALLY DIFFERENT CAR..... GOOD FOR YOU.MID MOTOR RULES.......

BASICALLY RUN THE CAR OFF THE KIT AND GO FROM THERE.SOME RACERS WOULD GO FOR ANOTHER DIFF FOR THE FRT AS THE COMES WITH A FRT ONEWAY.

BLADES CONVERSION FOR THE REAR DIFF OR FRT IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO RUN FULL TIME 4X4 WOULD BENIFIT THE DURABILITY AND RELIABILITY OF THE OUTDRIVES.

OTHER THAN THAT,THE CAR IS PRETTY COMPETETIVE.

RCLAB PREVIOUS VERSION IS THE VER 6.0.THE NEW ONE IS THE 7.7.HOPEFULLY IT'LL MAKE IT TO THE NORTH AMERICAN SHORE.OTHER THAN THAT THE VER 6.0 SHOULD STILL BE AVAILABLE.MOST OF THE PARTS ARE INTERCHANGEABLE WITH THE NEW ONE.CHEERS.!!.

The new car is RC Lab 7even Evo 7, or RC Lab 7-7

the one people will have now is RC Lab 7even Evo 6.0, or RC Lab 7-6

There will be two version of the new 7-7 though, a racer version and a pro version. The Pro has lots of aluminium pasrts as standard and is closer to the old 6.0 in terms of box spec. Although the 6.0 didn't have alloy hubs as standard.

man, i've been away for a while and i must say...nice to see some activity. the new car is going to be awesome. either version. and the nice part is the compatability between both the racer kit and the pro. i could see the plastic bulks coming in handy with some carpet events with the 50 oz min weight. the new rear hubs look awesome. and most importantly is the adjustable antisquat/antidive for both the front and the rear. thank you rclab! add to that the fact that both blocks for each end will come with the kit and you can't deny that rclab is truly doing what its racers are asking for. economical adjustability! you just can't go wrong with this kit.

as far as the 6.0 goes, i still like the lower top plates as electronics are getting smaller and smaller. i run a xxtra and a tc2 and they both fit on the lower deck...oh yeah, and a 9550oops! to me it's just prettier to see the plates low giving the chassis a super flat look. performance benefit is surely negligeable though.

this car is a blast to own!

later,
chris.

pro3racer: Congrats on the new kit! Did you get the blue or silver version? The kit doesn't come with a pinion gear but comes with a 100 tooth spur gear. I gear like this:

P2K: 32t
P2K2, MVP: 31t
GM3: 29t
Monster stock: 28t
Ti 10X2: 28t

Obviously you'll have to fine-tune gearing for your track and driving style, but this should be a good starting point.

lab driver,
100 tooth spur? i never knew this! i've been running the kimbrough 96, but my motor is often too high when i run new foams, or a high rpm motor. i'll have to check my pit box, but i bet i lost it.

trying some knew stuff this weekend on the lab. not much, but a few things. with the atlas layshaft assembly, my rear belt is loose enough to lift near the top of the tensioner. this should allow me to cut a new rear ladder style top deck that has a rung across the plate about midway back or so. i've noticed that most of the flex (what little there is) comes rearward of the motor. for carpet, i'd like to stiffen just a bit. we'll see.
also, i'm trying to fit some plastic bones on here to lighten it more and reduce rotating, and unsprung weight further. i've still got to figure that out though.
and a front antidive hingepin angle is piqueing(sp) my curiosity after running my atlas type t this way and getting favorable results on carpet.

we'll see. later kids.

Seaball-I think that's what came with it, Im using a Kimbrough 96 tooth now also. I used to have an atlas-the layshaft always seemed weak to me. I had the original YM34 though, maybe they changed it for the T. Let us know how the even stiffer (!) chassis goes.
