I'd second that. I have a BMI tc3 I just got ,and have been racing a tc3 since they first came out, and I they can easily still win races. I know I have been racing my composite chassis tc3 to victory a few times over the years , but pretty much always proven to be a very fast car, only driver let downs to blame. But anyway the TC3 is still a great car to buy in any form, but your right about the stripped threads they suck!, mainly gearbox housings. And one with good hopup is always a good bonus, and their so cheap at the moment with guy's going to the TC4. Any way c how u go , I'm sure you'll be happy with either one.
yeah, thanks anyway, good to hear the TC3 is still winning. Im hoping to get a paper round to maybe save some money, hopefully I could be getting around $110 a month so that'd b a healthy sum towards a new rc and things to help me win the tq.
