With the Xpress diff it's identicle to the 7even ones.I beleive they share the same maufacture.The Xpress has plastic outdrives which weighs lighter than the aluminum ones.There's delrin outdrives for the Xpress diff.I won't be surprise to see them soon...It is as smooth as the 7even ones.Just weight and Xpress diff you may find lying in the corner of the store sells for cheap.Main thing is the weight.Less weight better acceleration.Less power draw...longer run time.

The Xpress universals,yes, universals!!!..are much stronger material and it fits..the cvd on the 7even cars,wears and you may see the slop in the cvd out drives pin.When you have the car in the air,try moving the wheel slowly and see how much slop you have to move before you be able to turn the wheel.That's power loss right there.If there's no slop.....more power and run time right!!.. will see if there's another set up to cure these slops......Till then.Keep on Racing and have fun.

Hello AlexT,

Xpress is another TC company.It's origin is from HK.They Had the Xpress Pro and Mini Pro.Mike Swagger was sponsered by them.Their cars are very light weight cars.Fast but durability was an issue then.The company hasn't made any new cars but their parts are interchangeable especially the diffs.They are well known for their smoothness and weight.Very light.
They haven't got a website to promote this car anymore.Alex racing in Japan had hop ups for this car which can be use on the 7even cars too.It's been around for a while.so the products has proven to work at its best.That's why I suggested the Xpress diff.Otherwise,The kit diff is still very good.The new version should be revised and have blades to protect the aluminum diff from pitting...

Chrisman

P/S .who knows maybe a H/D light weight diff be out soon.

Hi AlexT,

If your interested in the xpress parts try this site:http://www.rc-xpress.com/all.html

If you are just starting out and are not yet at the top of your game then I suggest sticking to the stock diff. and save your money for other things that will really help your driving and tunning skills improve. Things like tires, inserts, wheels, springs, shock fluids, brushes and even a lathe that will keep your motor running faster longer.

Having these things and learning how to use them will do more for your car and allow you to drive the car easier and to your liking, which will result in faster lap times.

If you are at the top of your game and are looking for that .1 to.2 of a sec. per lap to take t.q. then lighter (especially rolling mass) is the ticket. It's even more important in stock when every little bit counts. Either way don't forget to use the x-ray blades as illustated here, it will save both diffs. and reduce slop.

Final answer...

Angry Grrrrr!

What are you guys doing with your drive shaft collars in the back of the Seven? When I bought mine used, they were all missing. I just got the new parts today, and hope to race tomorrow. I was not impressed with the quality of those drive shaft collars. Are you putting them between your rear bearings or what? There seems to be a lot of slop in the back of the car along the drive shafte without them.

Please let me know ASAP as I race tomorrow (Saturday)!

Default Thanks Chrisman!

I had to go back and look at some of the old photos that you posted of your Seven. That really helps. I was trying to figure out how to hook up the servo linkages, and you showed me how that you did it. Thanks.

That is amazing that you could fit your receiver underneath your front top deck like that. I will have to see if I can fit my Hi-tec DCX FM receiver under there tomorrow. Do you have any problems with it glitching having so much graphite/carbon and electronics around it?

Default Pretty good first day out!

This was the first day that I got to run my Seven. I had a couple of hang ups where my servo arms would slip.

The worst was then I lost of the nut that goes on the aluminum ball stud that goes with the Carbon fiber shock tower upgrade. Those aluminum ball studs are junk. I am going to upgrade to the RC Lab captured ball system. Aluminum is just not strong enough to hold well. The threads in aluminum can cross thread really easy and strip as you try to tighten them up.

So that ended my day.

But when I was racing, I was catching the leader who was running IRS chassis TC3.
