Team Associated TC7 Touring Car Build

Team Associated TC7 Touring Car Build

The TC7 is Team Associated’s latest asphalt blazer, and we got our hands on one to do a full online build. Included in this build will be a full set of Reedy electronics, a Futaba radio system and LRP tires … yes, I said LRP. Topping off the build is a Protoform Mazda6 GX body painted by the World-famous Larry Genova.

Aside from a few bumps, the build went together great. I got a few inside tips from the TC7’s designer and good friend, Bob Stellflue, so you’ll want to check out the build to see these tweaks.
