I guess everyone who upgraded from a T2 to a 007 did it to have the latest and greatest, not because the car is better.
Sure not much input on pros and cons of the new car.

i upgraded top the car for carpet and noticed a huge improvemnt, it could have been just the fact of getting a new car, but the 007 just seems to have a better fit and finish (i had one of the very first t2's). The car seems to respond better to setup changes, is faster through the corners, and feels like it has more overall traction.

Whether it was just mental or the car itself all i know is that my driving has been much better, and i am finally challenging for the win instead of always being bq. I have had several people come up to me and say that i have improved dramatically since getting the new car.

I am glad i upgraded everytime i go to the track

the car was released during the carpet season so unless you are a Paul L. type driver now one would have been involved in the testing of the car. I came from a different chassis and I have already done much better with the 007.

I almost won a race, if the bearings wouldn't die one me (first batch of T2007s, bearing died after 6 batteries!)

I would have to say there is much improvement from the T2 to the 007. The 3.5 mil chassis keeps the car stable in any form of racing. I even run it on low traction asphalt and let the suspension do the work. The car doesn't tweak as easy when you smash into something. It's also easier to drive. I do like having the latest and greatest but there is an improvement in the 007.

I'm getting back into touring and currently run the original T2. I was wondering if I should just purchase a 007 conversion kit or should I just break down for a new kit itself. Should I get the conversion kit, should I also get the EU version for when we run outdoors or will the US conversion work fine on asphalt with some changes in setup.

I did not like my T2, I love my 007 on both Rubber and Foam tires. Take it for what its worth.

If you are just getting back into TC, I would honestly suggest you stick with the original T2. There is nothing wrong with that kit, and it's still very competitive against anything out there today. Get back in the groove then upgrade to the 007 toward summer. The conversion kit is a good deal and will convert it to the a 100% 007 kit. The other option is sell your T2 and buy a new 007 kit.

If you run asphalt indoor or outdoor stick with the EU spec car. The US spec chassis and top deck are way too stiff for asphalt racing.

For outdoor asphalt and rubber tire you want the EU kit (or the EU conversion kit).

What I noticed between the t2 and the 007 is the 007 is more stable. The added flex in the rear of the car makes it more consistant... Instead of stepping out in some corners abruptly it stays smooth and maintains forward momentum through the corner... thus more corner speed. Overall I found it easier to drive on at the limit, and that made me faster right from the get go.
