Default TC3s


Both the Factory and Team kit are excellent choices. If you don't have the extra $$ to spare the Team is perfect.

You just miss out on the graphite....but you can get a graphite chassis later or may want to upgrade to a carbon fiber chassis later.

Parts availability is usually excellent at LHS and local tracks...I know I try to support the LHS/Tracks because without them there would be nowhere to race.

This is a very, VERY good reason.

How is the Team kit priced where you live? And the FT?

Do have in mind, that those A-arms tends to break easy.

One thing I dont like about the FT, is the alu battery bar. Because of the tight space on the chassis, good quality connectors easily can dead-short on the alu battery bar.

The racer seems nice. But my experience with composite shocks aint the best. They are hard working and they need a rebuild from time to time. And alu shocks simply last better. But that could be an upgrade later on, just considering prices.

These choises can be hard. I'm a kind of budget guy, but I've also experienced this: Buy cheap and cry a lot. Buy expensive and you only cry once.

The included tires, do they perform well on your track? Otherwise, try and trade them for proper ones in the LHS.

If the TC3 and XXX-S are your only two choices, then I would say go with the TC3. Either the Team or the Factory. The team can always be upgraded later down the road. The other car menitoned are very good cars but are pricey even here in the U.S.
