Hey XXXER. Hey yall. 1st post here.


A tc3 conversion for offroad doesnt sound too bad. I saw the pics of it too, it had schumacher suspension parts on it, like the a-arms and stuff. But I'm going with the XX4, mainly because I got to try one before I bought one. I love that buggy

I think it would be good because it has a shaft drive, so maintanance would be much easier. It may not perform as well as a XX-4, I dunno, but it would be really easy to wrench on.

AE-Racer: The XX4 is a good car, but if it is your first off-roader, I would highly suggest against it and tell you to get a Truck or a 2wd buggy! It is easier and better for you to learn on something a little simpler and easier to work on. If you race wheeler, almost all tracks are strictly mod 4wd, not stock at all. If it would be your first off roader, starting in mod would be a disaster! Where as buggy and Truck you could start off with stock and work your way up. The XX4 is a great 4wd, but is more difficult to work on especially for a newbie. Some people complain about how hard it is to get to the internals like belts and diffs, but the fact is that it's totally sealed drivetrain completely outweighs any of the headaches associated with it's teardowns. Consideriing that it can go practically as long as a buggy before it needs a rebuild, unlike other and older 4wd's that need a teardown very periodically because of it's open drivetrain!

the car would be easy to work on, but that would be offset bybroken shafts and rocks in the spur....

I wonder if the torque effect of the drive shaft would effect the way it jumps....

BTW, Does any one know where you can see pictures of this mutant TC3 on the net?

Talking HAHA!

Mutant TC3! LOL! Yeah, I bet the torque effect would affect the way it jumps. And I bet if AE did come out with a 4WD off-roader, and it was better than Losi's, Losi would make a XXX-4 based on the XXX-s.

A XXX4 based on the XXX-s would be awesome! But I wouldnt want it to come out for another 6 months+ or so because I just got my xx4.
