And they had taken out the famous "So when's Associated going to come out with a touring car?" ad in what 98? 97? The actual design concept might be 6-7 years old! And they still are right on top, that is incredible.
I've also got some information on the TC3. I beleive that Jeff Lewis piloted the car's first ever races with Duane Silva. Here's the link:

AE could be in the works with something, but like previously said The NTC3 took a long time for its release. There was even tons running the oldschool Trinity Gas TC3 conversion kit for awhile, and still AE was perfecting, and perfecting the NTC3 before it was released to the masses. Sit back, relax, and let AE take the time to release a solid performing kit thats worthy of the AE logo.

Only thing I wish AE did work on now was a 4WD buggy. With AE's reputation, and losi's support of 4wd, that class IMO would be bigger than the truck/buggy classes by far.

BTW will we ever get any cool shots of the associated back room with all the pretty NIB kits they are hiding from me? I could use some more NIB associated cars.

You guys do realize that the cars have not changed much period over the last 4 years AE just decided not to play revolving TC just to get your money. Most other companies develop the car while they sell different versions of it instead of finishing the product before release (money) Yokomo,Tamiya come to mind. I have a XXX-S but have had 3 TC3s, probably will get another soon. Most of the present cars are good and would not need to be updated to run well for 4 years but there is not as much money to be made that way. I am only impressed that AE is sticking to a good product.
