Turnigy TR-V7 1/16 Brushless Drift Car w/Carbon Chassis
For those of you looking for the ultimate 1/16 drift platform, the TR-V7 is here!
With features such as a full carbon fiber chassis, beautifully finished body, brushless power system, shaft driven 4WD, alloy shocks, fully adjustable suspension and hard compound drift tires, the TR-V7 will be sure to please!
The TR-V7 offers many tuning options such as adjustable camber & castor, shock mounting positions and spring tension. This allows you to dial in your handling for any course!
This model comes almost ready to run, with its pre-installed 5500kvbrushless motor, 25A ESC and 9g steering servo. This means that you will only need to add your own 2CH radio system and your ready to race!
It has the looks of a mean drift racing machine and the performance to back it up!
the only motor that fits without modification is this one ( 2040 Brushless Inrunner Motor 4800kv PRODUCT ID: 259000001 )and an esc to suit is this (
HobbyKing Brushless Car ESC 30A w/ Reverse PRODUCT ID: HK-30A )
the only upgrades I have found necessary are the 4 dog bones, as my plastic ones twisted and then wobbled, the ali ones make the car run much nicer, I also had to modify the front diff to make it permanently locked
the only one i can find that would fit with metal gear is this one ( 9306MG Metal Gear Servo 7.4g / 1.1kg / .16sec )
but Im not sure if its digital, why do you need a heavy duty servo anyway, one of the others would be fine for the drift car ?
the only thing I have replaced on mine is the 4 dog bones, I upgraded to the aluminium ones as my original plastic dog bones twisted and ran with a wobble, I also modified the front diff by removing the balls from the center as it started to slip and this car drifts better with locked diffs
Ohh and order a spare set of wheels because if you run it as much as I do you will need a new set of wheels in a couple of weeks, they dont last long, im going to test the extreme rally drift wheels soon which are a bit bigger and may need the body trimmed to fit but would last a lot longer
I'm looking for a car that I can use 3s 2200 Lipo's.... I have read thru and haven't seen where anyone use these, Anyone know of any cars that you can use these with? I just have So many of these Lipo's, it would be nice to use em....... Thanks for ANY help......
Actually looks like a kill board like was painted on the side of ally fighters in ww2, but hey, what do I know? Heli, not being politically correct, people have very thin skins nowadays. Most of the 1/10 and under cars are designed for 2s batteries, but check the specs on the esc's. If they'll handle 3s and the batteries will fit the tray, go for it. I'm guessing you have a stack of 2200's or there about? Your run time won't be long. Electric heli's and rc cars are different animals.
I like others I have found that make this car go from forward to reverse you need to push two or three times. When ESC ignores you there is a little yellow light. When it obeys there is a light red light. Anyone have any details on the ESC, either to program this feature out, or plain replace it a more friendly 25A ESC.
1- Me agrada ver que el uso del Castellano en estos foros se hace má*s popular.
2- Creo que si ha leí*do mi participació*n en este foro, yo nunca he recomendado, ni recomendaré* la compra de este producto, creo que esta decisió*n depende de cada uno. Usted puede gast**** su dinero donde y como crea conveniente.
3- El ú*nico objetivo que me guí*a en la participació*n en este foro es la mejora té*cnica y a bajo coste de las unidades que he adquirido. Simplemente he narrado soluciones que a mi me han funcionado, que no quiere decir que sean ú*nicas ni las mejores. Un saludo msr1317.
Msr1317 primero que nada querí*a aclarar que yo no afirmo que tu estuvieras alentando a la compra de este producto, solamente estoy haciendo una pregunta ya que es obvio que conoces mucho mas que yo de estos asuntos. Por favor permiteme rehacer la pregunta. Te parece que este es un producto que vale la pena comprar? Sabiendo lo que ya sabes, comprarí*as uno? Obvio estoy pidiendo tu apreciació*n personal, ya que yo no tengo una y te repito que resulta obvio que sabes mucho mas que yo. Saludos
Como comentaba, me agrada ver que el uso del Castellano en estos foros. Te agradezco la aclaració*n y te contesto. Yo personalmente precio calidad me comprarí*a, y he comprado el Mini Rally - Extreme Edition, he puesto algunas fotos en files en el apartado de este coche, y me he construido una casita para la piñ*oneria. espero haberte ayudado. Un saludo
I get about 15 minutes on run time on a zippy 2s 2200 40c pack on a large track. The track we run on is made for 1/10 and 1/8 scale racing. Has some real nice long turns and you really have to work the throttle
Hello, what's the size of the hex to adjust camber and toe? The wheel nuts is 5.5mm, right? I'm waiting my car to arrive and I want to buy the right tools to remove the tires and adjust camber and toe to maximize the drift performance.
- It has a low level of lubrication. (Can be arranged)
-The motor hasn´t rear bearing. Produces heat. (Can be arranged)
- The ESC works very poorly in reverse.
-The servo clashes with management. (Can be arranged)
- The gear servo is not metal.
-The screws are passed to the first. Low quality.
-The bodbones are fragile. No aluminum parts.
- The rear differential is rigid. Drift cars in the rear wheels turn more than the front. It has the same front and rear developments. Pinion 14 teeth
- Low level of aluminum parts and options.
- Body very dark. Low level detail.

1 thumbs up!
OK i received mine yesterday and i can tell that i was really impressed with the looks of this little car, i personally love it, but not only that, i can drift with this car way better than my 1/10 scale. I was able to fit a 2s 2000mah zippy battery and i cant really tell u the exact run time cause after 30min of unstopping drifting the battery was still good, just for that reason alone this is a keeper for me.
Now the bads: ESC is crap! i can't even go reverse and can't find a way to reprogram it, sometimes i turn it on and it goes reverse until i press forward on the transmitter, didn't bring the antenna tube (no big deal), wing was completely loose, and there was some parts that were over tightened, overall the car needed some adjustments out of the box but is still pretty damn good deal for $100 shipped.
I think anyone that like a 1/16-1/18 scale car/truck will love this one.
Problem with the BRUSHLESS motor, this part is not serviceable - appear the motor shaft bearing came off inside in the motor - caused overheating and ruin the main gear connected to the MAIN SHAFT. Only use this less than 5 minutes. Working on the warranty with HK

check if everything is working properly. the esc mine is defective. I believe that verification not even sell it. Cheap one can understand why!
