Default Team Associated TC7.2 Factory Team

Team Associated TC7.2 Factory Team














Team Associated is proud to announce their newest 1:10 scale 4WD electric touring car kit, the TC7.2 Factory Team Kit, the next generation in the TC7 lineage.

With current touring car platforms reaching higher plateaus of precision and performance, the engineers behind the doors of Area 51 wasted no time to ensure that the TC7 exceeds expectations. The TC7.2 comes packed with a host of new components and the features necessary to keep you on top.

As the on-road market advances at an ever-increasing rate, more is demanded from the chassis to accommodate the ultra-competitive racing classes. A successor to the TC7.1, the TC7.2 maintains the proven suspension geometry, but adds refinement to chassis balance and the flex necessary for today's racing class. The centrally positioned IFM (Inline Flex Mount) motor mount adds several mounting configurations to help fine-tune chassis flex to the racing surface, and has an integral mounting position for an optional chassis pitch control system (PCS). The TC7.2 also carries an all-new aluminum rear gear differential for the ultimate in precision and heat dissipation, as well as an ultra-light front spool assembly. Along with a list of new features, the TC7.2 Factory Team gives you everything you need to race at the highest level -- all without sacrificing low part count or affordability. A well-refined racing chassis with success in its heritage, the TC7.2 Factory Team Kit is another "Champion by Design" from Team Associated!

Features
  • All-new, ultra-precise aluminum rear gear diff for maximum performance
  • Ultra-lightweight front spool with replaceable hardened steel outdrives
  • One-piece IFM (Inline Flex Mount) motor mount system
  • Updated bearing caps with integral camber link mount for ultra-fine link length adjustments
  • Updated floating servo mount
  • New battery mounting system for greater adjustability
  • Updated narrow chassis shape with optimized flex characteristics
  • PCS (Pitch Control System) option to further adjust chassis flex characteristics
  • FOX(R) Shock Bodies with Genuine Kashima(R) Coat, SS
  • DCV (Dual Constant Velocity) drive shaft assemblies included for front drive
  • Ultra-lightweight carbon composite suspension components
  • Aluminum rear CV bones
  • 26 precision ball bearings

True, Iím sure a lot will wait till the 7.2 is available. Then look to sell. Itís last thing I need right now is to add another. But sometimes itís hard to pass.
