i know the importer for the labs here in Australia and have looked at the car alot, but im not impressed with it. there is alot of slop in it and they seem a bit fragile, suspension arms cracking(yes cracking) layshaft pulleys stripping(where pins go in).

what are your impression of the car and have you guys had these problems? Have the labs one big meets?

I have never had any of the problems you mention. The front end does have some play but that is the Active Camber Action (ACA) and is designed into the car. The ACA can be locked out by using a grub screw to retain the suspension pin instead of using the E-clips. My car is rock solid and tough as nails. I can slice through a TC3 and not even get scratched.

everyone in this forum seems to like the lab very much (cant say for myself, i havent tried one) butover here in Aus they are frowned upon for some reason?

i've run the 6.0 verII for about a year, and now i have converted it to the latest. that is the gt3 beta version. this is by far the best revision that the seven has seen.

i've had the car feeling quite good, and from a durability standpoint...it's a tank. the arms may not be as strong as some of the really robust ones out there (kyosho and atlas to name a few), but they are not brittle. personally i'd like to see the plastic bumper extend about 1/2" further on each side, but the car stays together, quite well.

you should pickup one of stevem's cars to try out. i doubt you'll be dissappointed. just be sure to get a few spare arms,carriers, and hubs so you won't be down and out on race day.

I also run the 6.0 Pro II version and it is underweight but built like a tank. I've broken maybe one front and one rear arm early on but haven't had to replace anything for a very long time.

I can set up anyone interested with a car and some spares like arms and knuckles. Just ask.

Thumbs up gt3

yup, chrisman and myself are both using the newest gt3 chassis. it is by far the nicest work of rclab to date. much needed roll center adjustability (and anitsquat/dive geom). the only problem i've run into is that the chassis is extended forward about 6mm to account for the front susp mount and the front bulkhead no longer attaches to the bumper to reinforce it. after a brutal weekend, i noticed that my graphite is all cracked and bent up. i am in the process of finding someone to remake the bulkheads for me, extending out the front tabs to cover the bumper.

the new chassis is very quality, and very adjustable. you won't go wrong. contact audiaudi for one.

Hey Steve,

I may want to buy some extra parts for the sedan I got from you. It isn't here yet, but I expect that it will be here soon. Can you email me a list of parts that you have. That way I have extras. I bought a TC3 as well to practice with so I don't tear the RCLab car up learning to drive on the small carpet track!

Jeff,

I shipped the car with a new in the package set of front suspension arms and a new in the package set of rear suspension arms. If you have an idea of some other parts you'll need, ust let me know. I have a box of spares including complete aluminum diffs, C-hubs, more F&R arms, hinge pins, even some of the aluminum steering knuckles and C-hubs.

Better yet, I still have two completely built RCLab sedans that I need to sell.
