Endless pursuit of speed and performance realizes
advanced racing technology to deliver the racing edge
Having maintained its brilliant record in major races throughout Japan and around the world with minor improvements since its launch, the LAZER ZX-6 has fully evolved into the new ZX-7. Over this time the racing landscape has changed significantly with many circuits using high-grip carpet and artificial turf. In addition, the power and speed of electric off road cars has increased dramatically. While maintaining the signature mild control and dynamic maneuverability of the ZX-6, the new narrow main chassis design of the ZX-7 realizes optimal rigidity and lighter weight while the new front suspension and new aero body with rear wing design generates more downforce. These performance improvements go together with the essential elements of reliability and durability as well as wider scope for custom settings that will make the ZX-7 the leading edge in modern racing.
●Center midship motor and center shaft drive 4WD.
●A7075-T6 grade Duralumin upper deckless chassis.
●Equipped with floating resin servo mount.
●Side stiffener dramatically improve chassis rigidity in pitch direction.
●Sliding motor mount provides easy removal/attachment of motor.
●4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension is equipped with turnbuckle upper arms.
●Front and rear are equipped with precision universal swing shafts.
●Aluminum steering arm promises linear control feel.
●Includes X-GEAR high graphite grease and shock springs.
Main chassis is made of the same lightweight and high rigidity A7075 T6 material as 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. Addition of new center stiffener ensures rigidity and improves maintenance by removing front and rear torque rods.
New design short gullwing type front sus arms allow deeper stroke to generate traction. In addition to short sus arms, wide aluminum sus holders produce a great feel for the ground.
New position of tie rod mounting hole for the front knuckle 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.
Aluminum shock caps were used on ZX6.6 but the ZX-7 has changed to reinforced resin for improved stability on jump landings and performance over rough surfaces.
Optimized length of universal shafts minimizes trouble in the drive train and also feature pin retention rings on front and rear joint sections for reliability in meeting the demands of modern high-power loads.
New design rear upper bulk with lower mounting of the upper arm is incorporated into the rear suspension that actively moves to suit high-grip surfaces. New design rear sus arm structure allows arm length to be changed with bushes in the sus shaft hole.
Instead of the center diff used in the ZX6.6, 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. Also, cup joint covers on the center shaft joints reduce wearing and prevent pin coming out.
Completely new design aero body features a center fin, narrow cabin, modified front window angle with ribs and smoother side parts for improved rectification for superior overall controllability and stability.
New rear wing design improves traction performance and durability with 1.0mm thickness. Bolt on attachment is more secure and delivers superior traction compared to previous hook & pin mounting.
