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!
Here in HK all the parts are like the stock ones. This car is very good and very fast with on road tyres. If you really want to use it. you should by the gears for it. because was the only time I had problems. In the forum some persons complained about the motor. Probably because of the soft tyres too. So, If you want it as drift, its fine. you can by the OneWay to test, and a set of Differential and bevel Gears I have also a motor Pinion in case mine goes bad.
- 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.

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!

Actually pretty impressed with it..
Out of the box, it does tend to push a little as others have said, meaning it can be a bit hard to get the desired angle coming into corners..
Buuuutttt there is hope, xray m18 diffs, and rc18b/t diffs fit and work..
A front one way would reaalllyy help this thing out, and would help throw the rear end out with a little tap of the brakes. I think with that, it would be awesome. Once it gets sliding its actually quite good.
Im using zippy 2200's and I get agggeesss runtime.. Around an hour or so.
Would be good to see some different tires/rims/bodies/drivetrain upgrades.
