The best way is always to experience it yourself (also the most expensive and difficult way). With my converted 6.2 I was very fast, to my surprise I could go two tenth faster with my T4. Both cars were in perfect shape and had a very good setup for the track. Today one of our top german drivers showed up with an A800 and was instantly 1-2 tenth faster than with his T4. So this is maybe the best car around. And were is it in the ETS sheets?! Tenth

There are many ways to setup a car, even the the wing of a body is very important to tune... My second race today this year, (did a lot of kitesurfing this spring and summer) made it to te A final, 11.909 was my fastest lap and 12.334 sec my best average, finished 5 overall, winner has 11.6 fastest and 12.05 average with the tamiya 419, so the tc6.2 with stock arms, rsd shocks configuration, is not so bad, if you see there are a lot of xray 's '16. If the tc7 is a little bit better than the tc6.2, I'm sure it will be a winner for me, and more training of course. I' m proud that I the only asso Tc driver in my region, it gives me a good feeling if they say around the track ' look who' s that Asso is going around like he 's driving on rails.. 'looks so fast in the chiccane. On that moment I have sparks in my eyes ��. I' m the outsider, 'the lone Wolf' with my AE TC6.2, and I can count on him. I edmit I'm a Asso addict lol. I would be even more proud if the new car is made to make a winner, not to be in the shadow of other top brands. Design to win, not to follow... Okey sorry I'm in the flow of a good raceday...

From what I understand the graphite is cut in the USA...or it was in the recent past

That is better than nothing. Good on Associated if they are able to keep some of it domestic.

Hope the TC7 is a winner.

So this car doesn't have the issues of the 6.2! I would like to see one run before i buy. I sold my zx14 and came back to rc racing full time and save a little money.
