i would have to agree with tim,i know you ask about the tc6 or t3 2011 xray
but maybe have a look at the photon.i switched to photon last april after having had xrays for the last 6 years & havnt looked back ,im just your average club racer also but i can tell u the photon is an easier car to drive & set up ( for me anyway )most ppl that have a drive of a photon say the same thing about how easy it is to drive it fast.another thing that i like is the way photon keep bringing out upgrades to the car instead of a new kit every year.anyway just an option for you to maybe consider
good luck with your decision
Don't go with a PHOTON please, I use to drive a 416WE then change to a photon (worst car I've ever owned) could not drive the freakin car, switch to TC6 and let me tell you it's like night and day. Sorry Prof. This statement is not intended to hurt anybody it's my own honest opinion.
