Default Rumor mill on new Associated TC?

So is are there any rumors out there about a new Associated TC? No particular interest just curious. I know the 6.2 has been out for quite a bit and over due for an update in modern TC update standards.

Default tc 6.3

My guess nothing major tc 6.2 with upgraded plastics. basically the 6.2 with the rsd lightweight kit. I doubt they mess with active rear toe or anything that might take effort which associated wont do for onroad right now. i am running 2 tc 6.2 box stock with dcj. Will be upgrading 1 to the rsd kit this weekend.

I'd have to agree, the car has proven to be quite competitive with some geometry tweaks. They will likely follow their usual trend by changing the plastic this time around.

Nonsense...the new car is coming within the next couple of weeks. It will be a blend of Awesomatix and Associated. This way they can still be referred to as the A-car. It will be a shaft/belt design with leafsprings throughout the entire chassis that attach to coil springs dampened by water balloons. Plastics will be removed from the car entirely and everything else is attached with pop rivets. No need for the extra tools anymore, just need that $14,437 pop rivet gun sold exclusively from you know who...

Saw that with the cheat sheet update.

Hopefully people wont get there hopes up expecting huge changes will be a parts upgrade. the 6.2 is a fine car that can keep up with most cars it doesn't have reactive auto adjusting dehooter. But most of those gimmicks only help a very few drivers that don't use dots and barriers as a way to get value out of your track days.

A TC4.1?

A modular, sport-level touring car that is shaft drive and has gear diffs.

Isn't this what the Team Associated Apex touring car is?

Thanks for pointing this out so that it can be removed. There is no such thing as a TC6.3, and there never will be.
