Here in the UK we are expecting them to be another month or so....
The next shipment from the US is due next tuesday and if they were on that ship ( that sailed 2 day ago ) i'm sure some US shop would have them by now.

I'm hoping they have sneeked some on the ship and not told anyone as i have one pre-ordered !

Can't wait for this car as Ollys looks brilliant.

I have heard that the first test kits have been ordered and these will go to some team drivers and in-house people to do test builds. If these go according to plan testing the fit of parts and the manuals etc. then it would be up to a month before they start the full rollout - which I would forecast end of October.

Now off course this is all hearsay and speculation on my part - I wish someone from Associated would comment. There are so many new cars coming including a new Xray, Schumacher and I believe a Serpent and I am sure people will be jumping ship to them if they feel they are going to arrive first.

Keven,

Have you run your TC6 with foam tires on carpet yet? If so, how did it work?

Do not think anyone has run it on carpet with foams. Since there really is not any more foam racing anymore :-(

In Minnesota, we're one of the last redneck holdouts in the world running foam tires on carpet.

The big question mark we have right now is whether the TC6 will work out of the box in that configuration. We've seen some other rubber-specific cars act very strange on foam tires.

I'll find out when I get one and try it out. I'll have help from some experienced sedan guys here to set it up, especially if we find out it's too flexible.
