Kyosho has just posted a new video of the Lazer ZX7 1/10th scale 4WD Competition Buggy. The model arrives in hobby shops in kit version without electronics. The main chassis is made in A7075 T6 alluminium as used on the ZX6.6, but plate thickness has been reduced from 3.0mm to 2.5mm with increased milling to make the chassis lighter and optimize rigidity.
The new design short gullwing type front suspension arms allow deeper stroke to generate more traction.
The tie rod mounting hole has a new position for the front knuckle and increases steering angle. Hub carrier allows precision setting adjustments of caster angle to 7°, 10°, 13° by changing bushes to match different road surface conditions.
Kyosho has also changed the aluminum shock caps for improved stability on jump landings and performance over rough surfaces.
The center differential in the ZX7 features a new lightweight direct slipper incorporating aluminum disk that not only delivers light throttle feel, but also dissipates heat to minimize power loss.
The model uses a completely newly designed aero body, featuring a center fin, narrow cabin, modified front window angle with ribs and smoother side parts for improved rectification for superior overall control and stability.
New rear wing is 1.0mm thick and improves traction performance and durability.
