Over gear: The layout of new 7even doesn't change too much, just with some modifications of those A-arms, damper positions... I have seen some photos of it from our local RC magazine. Please correct me if I'm wrong, I can't remeber what exactly the modifications are...

ernest: i like plastic cars too...thats y i got the MR4TC, but those kinda plastic is like composite plastic, its a lot stiffer then tamiya plastic, the XXX-S gives me a feeling that the plastic its going to use are the tamiya soft plastic!! if the there are graphite tube chassis or like the prototype, with graphite chassis, i think the car would give me a more "pro" look!!

but i dont really like losi cars!! the make stuff so complicated and stuff!! the outline of the car is not smooth, like the street weapon, i have no idea how to setup that car!! but i believe that the XXX-S is going to be a lot better than street weapon!!

hey...i heard a lot of people say that the micro have no grip what so ever!!! i have a friend whos dad went to japan to look at the model exibition and saw the micro test running, he said that the power slides all the time, i think its just that stock tires are usless right? or that the springs on the car are too hard?

Fai: nice to work with you!

ernestf- I'm using a 10000uF cap with my V12 on the micro! The cap is takes up a serious amount of space!

Is it me or is the original front tires on the micro a different compound to the back? Haven't started painting my Viper body yet... job for this weekend. Ran the chassis around the flat last night and it feels very Smoooth! Just a shame the front gear diff is crap!

My SW IWC used to run quite well with a stupidly "stiff" suspension.... Losi Black springs in the rear and purple springs in the front!
