Possibly looking for a new RC car in a month or two. What is the latest information on RC Lab? Used to have a RC Lab 7 Even Pro II. Enjoyed it, but way too much wheel slop. Thought the quality was really high other than that.

We still use them in the UK and if you got to www.rclab.co.uk/sys then you can see that a GT4 is on the way

yeah, and a malaysia distributor was going to set the world on fire with this car and issue their own updated parts, etc. it never happened to any real magnitude, and i venture to guess that the gt4 won't make it past paper.

the car was cool, but it was lame how support just vanished and everyday morons proclaimed to be the savior for the car and couldn't deliver.

i'll believe it when i see it.

Default Over weight

I have found my 7-7 gt3 pro to be slightly heavy, does anyone have any ideas on how to lighten them?

I found that the quickest way to lighten the car was to sell it and buy something else... not what you want to hear either is it, lol

My standard 7.7 weighs in at 1495 gramms and thats with pretty average radio gear and 3300 cells.

My GT3 weighs 1460 with similar equipment and the lightened centre shaft so I wouldn't say it was that heavy.

Although my Cyclone is only 1425 fully loaded but then the Cyclone is a much newer car.
