Not that this helps any as there is zero support for Xpress here.
um... you've got some hints....

In a former msg, I have told that the test driver (actually he involed in some development of the 7even) was a former team driver of the X-press (they are both HK car, and he involed some development in the X-press as well), some of the parts will compatible with the x-press...
If you have ever seen an X-press with a multi link beam system in the rear (the device that can control the rear toe-in inside a corner), I tell you that the 7even have try that option before... but due to the difficulties to setup that system, the Lab have gave up on the production... In the process, 1 or 2 prototype have been made, but I can't see any other else nowadays.... We still got one Xpress with that device..

Moreover, we still have some X-press parts in stock....

Mike swauger have left his car in the lab when he visit HK...

I did read something a while ago about the diffs from the Xpress fitting in the RCLab. I owned the top line MS Xpress but I never ran it. I was amazed at how nice the car was and how free the drivetrain was compared to the Yokomo I was running at the time. I eventually sold the car as there was absolutely no parts available anywhere.

Hey... you have to know me sooner....
Some New X-press have ran out from the storehouse in these days.. especially the mini (1/12 touring) seems this scale start to get hot...
I think the best 1/12 touring concerning the price together was the X-press...

A buddy once had the Xpress Mini when I had my HPI Mini Pro cars. They were a blast for sure.

I still see the Xpress sedan and the Xpress Mini on eBay all the time. Someone has a bunch of these all NIB for sale there.

The interest in 12th scale sedans (mini class) seems to be taking off and you may want to blow the dust off those Xpress cars for sure. I know that they used to be available all decked out with the red alloy parts, graphite chassis and they sure looked fast.

If you need a test driver, just let me know. I'll run a Mini Xpress for you.

Where can I get a RC Lab car? I've never seen one before and they look sweet as hell. I'd love to have one just as a conversation piece.

Hey i've been putting off buying a RClab car for too long! I'm finally back in the market for a new touring car...I was about to order the 7evo6 from speedtech but I saw a 7evo7 NR on the Hong Kong site that blew me away...It accepts stick packs!!! My club has this sportsman class that I love racing in but they only accept the use of stick packs. I was thinking about just taping my pack on the chassis of the 7evo6 but that just looks so...unprofessional...Can I get the 7evo7 NR anywhere in the USA? Or a stick pack config for the 7evo6? Hmm...let me know before I buy the 7evo6 this week okay guys!

kreator - i'd go witht the new car if it's not too much hassle. the new car will allow more adjustments, and will be better supported by those running the lab cars. 90+% of the 6.0 parts still fit, but how they fit is what is changed on the 7.7. if you intend to race competitively, you'll thank yourself for the initial work. the price is comparable, but i can't imagine not wanting to spend the additional $ to allow you change roll center and antidive, and perhaps inboard toe in the future.

Default rclab MY has made it to the A-mains

Finally it has been the trust and hard work of our fellow rclabs in MY that we made it to the A-mains. For your info all our drivers are new drivers that had rat labs for about 3 months and now the A-Mains. The stock car out of the box has gotten them C-main in August, B-Main in September and now A-main in October.

RClab wins A-Main 1st in Stock 23turn 5 mins Race.
RClab TQ 1st in Open Modified Motor Race!

It has been a proud day for us all.

We wouldn't have done if it's not for rclab, this car helps us to win!
