no, i consider it ideal for a locost 7, they have technology from the same era, simple and strong, unlike modern cars, they are not dependant on technology

I hope correctly I understood a question, a body different, and the chassis at all of them identical for 100%.

Very conveniently when there is the correct tool. The motor put easily and quickly.
I will work now with an electrical wiring and brake system

Looking very good, Odessa. I like that we have the same shock abosorbers, although we'll both probably have to replace them before the first drive.

I agree, the rear shock absorbers are very solid. I'll try to put other spring
Согласен, задние амортизаторы очень твёрдые. Попробую поставить другие пружины

Hello. Today I am working on part of the body, which will be used as the master model. Also, I will take matrix measurements for the subsequent development of the parts from the fiberglass. The parts are painted black in order to verify the absence of defects.
