ha haa!!!! ill keep it instead .. audiaudi count me in for the next shipment.!!

as for Rclab My congrats on your A main trophys. Keep up the good work .!!!

Hey man, they are all well tested
You can just buy one, assemble it, and shoot those Yokomos and X-rays out...

Sure, just let me know....
The new 7even GT3 run in the A-main in HK quite frequently, and have some wins as well, when competiting with the SDs and TBIIIs, and those races have some national class racers join... GT3 is great...

Nope..
That's the shaft holding the pulleys on the centre motor mount, so it is the center shaft.. that's how we call it in our place.. but we are not english speaker..

Some of my own bodies are on my site.. I use the same scheme on every car of mine....
The Alfa have better traction then the Stratus, most cars will become pushing in the corner when have the inner spill-platesinstalled. But if without those spill-plates the car will get more steer even then the Stratus. But the most important, the rear spoiler will be disqualify by racings under rule of JMRCA or IFMAR 1/10 EP touring class... too wide...
I like the Stratus, the car seems more stable then the Alfa... and I have already used to the Stratus, I don't wanna setup the car again...

I just received my 7even NR kit but man...there is something seriously wrong with it...I think the rear holes for the rear arm bulkhead were drilled incorrectly or something...There is way too much toe in on the right rear hub and wheel. So much that it touches my stick pack plate....Has anyone had this problem? This sucks because I was planning on racing this weekend...I rebuilt it with new arms, bulkhead, and rear hub and same result everytime...Are the instructions wrong or something? Hmm...Here's a pic of what I mean..

Do you have a setup station to measure the toe in?
I take it the stick pack holders are off another car, with teh Lab the cells are pretty far back, I wouldn't like to run with stick packs even if there is clearance, it still looks very close on the left. Those holders could easily deform while racing and rub on the tyres. If you must run stick packs your best bet may be to use strapping tape, that way you can get the cells further forward and use the slots in the chassis which are there for using tape. If there isn't a rule requiring stick packs, saddle's are a much much better idea, the chassis was designed for them and it will lower the cg a lot.

The 7even NR is especially made to accept stick packs...check it out on the HK website...I went through and did all measurements of the holes and they seem pretty accurate...what is going on here? I also forgot to mention that the bulkheads too are plastic unlike the aluminum ones on the Pro kit...maybe there distorted but I swapped all four and still no luck...I'm stumped...

Hmm stick packs holders must be a HK thing, not seen them on UK kits. If you've swapped out all the plastic parts then it may be the chassis isn't drilled correctly, but thats not very likely. You need to make some precise measurements I think to get a good idea of where the problem might be.

measurements all check out....its gotta be the plastic bulkheads...also, does it matter which hub carriers and what direction they are placed? Mine have two stamped 1.5R and two 1.5L...I'm assuming its right and left but I tried every possible combination and the right rear still toes in...dang it! Let me know how you are setting yours up...

Yes the hubs are right and left handed. If you want to check the bulkheads try and find something like a long wooden scewer and put one in each hole, this will exagerate the angle of the holes so you can see if one is badly drilled. The rear should have some rear toe in, it helps to keep the rear end planted on the track, anything between 1 and 3.5 degrees is used on most cars. Don't have my Lab any more so don't know what stock settings are.

Hmmm...the chassis checks out okay....I fear the bulkheads may be the culprit...here's a pic of bulkheads and chassis...I guess I'll wait and get the aluminum ones or who knows...a new car...I worked over 8 hours on this car and had to tear the whole thing apart...Sketchy craftsmanship...
