I would suspect there will be a 2.0 and a 2.5mm chassis - good tuning options although don't know which it will come with.

Definitely don't think 1.5mm will be an option - suspect that would flex like paper

This DEFINITELY looks like a home run for Associated. Can't wait to see one of these in person.

well, from what i can see in the pictures anyway

Screws go into those holes. They may have been removed to try and get more flex or he had not put them back in when the pic was taken.

Basically everything from the suspension arm out will be retained. There will be new shocks but the current ones will work. Anti-roll bars,l hardware, bearings, and diff parts (minus outdrives) will stay the same.

Will the rear diff have a cage thrust bearing or will it come with a gear diff?

What's up with this? The buzz for this car is dying quickly. I know that some team drivers could give some more info in an effort to promote the car. For example:

Do current setups work on the new chassis?
Does the car rotate better?
How well it qualified over the weekend when you were using your super human driving skill to crush the competition?

OR

How thick is the chassis and upper deck?


Just lie to me so I can get excited about something!!!!!

I saw this car in action a lot during the nats. One thing that I noticed compared to the TC5 was that it carried a lot more corner speed. I was also told that the tire wear was excellent.
