The ZD Racing MX-07 is a very large 1/7 scale RC 4WD Monster Truck. It is the third release in ZD racing's X-07 (1/7 scale) series following on from the EX-07 Hoonicon and DBX-07 Desert Buggy. It is powered by a massive 4292 Brushless motor and has options for kit or RTR with 6s Surpass Hobby or 8s (!) Hobbywing ESCs. Here I have reviewed the RTR model with 6s Surpass ESC.
Typically here at QuadifyRC.com I review smaller scale cars at around that 1/16 to 1/12 scale size. They remain to be some of the best bang for buck cars out there. Here we are taking a big step up and not stopping at 1/10 or even 1/8 scale but going to 1/7 scale. I should be really clear that this is a really big RC car: It is 700mm long (27"), the tyres are 188mm (7.5") tall and 102mm (4") wide and it weighs over 8kg. At this size yes it is quick but compared to smaller cars it handles like something else entirely - the ability to drive over practically any surface with handling being extremely predictable compared to smaller cars. ZD racing have dabbled in 1/10 and 1/8 scale RC cars before but the new 1/7 scale MX-07 as reviewed here is there biggest yet.
In this review I will be looking at the 6s capable RTR version that ships with the Surpass Hobby Rocket 150a ESC and just needs batteries to run. First lets look at what is included.
