Hey guys, I saw a guy take a TC3 RTR straight from the box, onto the track. The only change he made was his Radio. It seamed to run fairly well considering it was a RTR.

LRP Runner ESC, It has Forward & Reverse. It is nice for what it is, but if you are going to race i would suggest getting a better ESC. It's not "legal" for most racing anyways due to the fact it has reverse.

The TC3 really isnt all that "Cheapy" The only "Cheap"part of the whole car is the Radio. If it was me, i would throw the LRP Runner into a Traxxas Rustler, or sell it to someone who has a rustler.

Take the radio and use it only to get basic "car controls" learned down pat ( many people have problems starting out, when the car comes at them they turn the wrong way, ect... Its normal!! ) then get nicer radio like a Futaba Jr, or JR XR2.

By cheap, I meant inexpensive. For example, Associated isn't going to throw in a LRP Pro Digital ESC in a RTR car, because they want to keep the price down. This is why they didn't have a better ESC or a better radio in the car.

I think for the price the RTR TC3 is a sweet car it comes bearings and a good esc! I think it is one of the best rtr cars that u can almost take to the track only thing u need is a good motor!
