I'm wondering if the changes are going to make much of a difference in stock class.

Also Amain has the kits on pre-order already. That's pretty exciting.

Looks like all new bulkheads, plastics look different as well. Floating servo not de-coupled though.

Looks pretty good; did they say it includes DCV? it comes in an xray standard.

Interesting Yokomo style sway bar stopper. Shocks look sweet.

Should be a very competitive car to run; if 6.2 owners want to upgrade I say don't bother; get a RSD conversion kit; if they manage to have it in stock. But then your slave to its availability and it seems to be very popular. Stock is up and down.

I'd say the final word would be its durability and and quality control. That's the big thing in Xrays corner.

as a 6.1 owner this intrigues me. a guy in NC told me this past weekend that the TC7 was going to be released and i saw this this morning. kind of been eyeing an awesomatix but learning an entirely different car that not even anyone locally has kind of intimidates me and i'd hate to buy a used car that i know nothing about that i feel i should buy new so i wouldnt pick up anyone's used trash. might have to talk to my shop about this new one

It looks right to me. We had a prototype 1pc mount for a while and it worked nicely. When I tested it, the car cut into the corner better and had better drive out of the corners.

When the mounting positions are further back and further forward, you make the area more stable around the motor, should be far better than their old design that was very flimsy.

I cant wait to get my hands on this one. The steering looks as if it can be flipped to have the bellcranks float like the Xray steering system. I may be wrong but I don't even know if there is a real benefit to doing this.
