I agree!

Hey Randy.... any word on if the plastics are new? Hoping that the 5 off road series plastic was used...

I want to come back!

OK, I guess I'll be the first to ask.... How upgradable is the TC6.2. All I really would like are the new suspension geometries. Are the suspension mounts in the same location on the TC7 as the TC6.2? Is it just a matter of buying TC7 arms and C Blocks?

If you were to upgrade an 6.2 I'd bet on needing all the arms,chub, knuckles and the towers for the geometry change. I think the biggest thing that has not been said is are those big bore low pro shocks? They look like it but no confirmation. The car looks very solid, reminds me of the yokomo and that's not a bad thing in my book

The TEAM has did it, all the things I wanne see improved are updated. It looks like AE is back on rails. It looks back competitive against all the European brands. Glad that I have waited little bit longer.

Greats

im not going to lie, i like the car. But i was expecting a ground up new car. This appears to be more suited to being called a TC6.3 than a TC7. Complaining about the name is trivial, i know.

Im really curious for a full part list comparison.

Good looking car. Fixed all of the weak points on it. I really like the top deck ;)

Svendc 12-10-2015 11:43 PM

when will the kit become available?

Hi, CT,
What is your say in the new motor mount??

hobbs 12-10-2015 11:49 PM

Based on the released photos at this point, i see that parts remained from TC6.2 are
1) Gear diff
2) spool
3) Arm mounts
4) bumper
5) spur mount
6) turnbuckles
7) front & rear drive shafts

The others are all new parts


BTW, anyone feels 'yokomo' in this new TC7??

hobbs 12-11-2015 02:07 AM

I guess below shows the parts carried over from TC6.2 to TC7.
