I cannot understand where this experiences come from. My personal experience is that the TC5 is not weaker than any other Pro-TC. In my two seasons Indoor and Outdoor the only thing that breaks is the C-Hub. Mostly on the right side, when hitting the wall with full speed. The original Asso bumper is one of the strongest among all TC. Even a full speed impact against an egde won't hurt the car.
I never had bend or broken any other part of the car, even though I began TC just a year ago and did some very stupid driving in the first months with to strong BL-motors.
+ X-ray: wide appearance, clever ideas integrated, a lot of tuning options available
- X-ray: price
+ TC6: nice price, easy to drive
- TC6: not available yet...
