I'm curious about the performance of the Fox shocks.

They have had those shocks available for their offroad cars for a couple months now. Most people agree it doesn't warrant any on track time, but that the shocks just feel smoother overall.

No DCJ's in the kit! I guess we can put it on the wish list for the TC7.1

That's pretty disappointing.

That's pretty surprising considering almost every car out now comes with djc's. Still a nice looking kit though, I'm liking the upgrades.

Yeah, but all the modern TCs look the same. Looks just like my xray. The biggest thing I'm looking out for is plastic performance in wrecks. I've got a T4 '14 and have been waiting for the TC7 but the breakage on the TC6.2 my friend has has left me a bit squeemish.

Yeah, they should definitely have included metal spool out drives with pucks and DJC.

So add the cost of DCJ and basically not too far off from a T4 price. Didn't really want to come in and bash...but...c'mon Associated!

if anyone has any doubts that Team Associated isnt on their "A" game. Just look at the results from 2015.....look at ROAR Nationals to regional to local level, and see what has been done this year alone.

It may not be a perfect world, but I believe we have a good handle on this racing thing and customers request. We look forward to a extremely good 2016 with all the new vehicles including the TC7

I have no doubt that Team Associated is on their 'A' game but I don't agree that they are listening to customer request. DCJ's are a no brainer at this point. I don't think there is any other current top end car that doesn't come with them. For me personal I like the improvements that they made. However, if you add the cost of DCJ's to the price point of this kit, the consumer could get one of the "optimized luxury touring cars" that have better plastics.

most of us already have dcv's from the 6.2 so just put them on the tc7. even adding the $40 for the dcv's the kit is still cheaper than anything on the market. they could have included them but lets not sweat the small stuff! this is a rock solid kit and cant wait to buid it
