A TC3 offroad car is unlikely to have problems over jumps because the rotating mass and torque of the driveshaft and motor is quite small compared to that of the wheels and tires that would be used. In a 2wd car or truck with the motor mounted transversely it isn't the actual mass of the armature and the torque it creates that lets you control how a car jumps , but the mass of the tires changing speed when you get on the gas or brakes in mid air.

Cool

Maybe with a 4WD off-road TC3, you could control the car's roll instead!

Xtreme R/C did a Q&A with Losi Jr where he said that they are doing a prototypes of a new 4wd off-road based on the XXX-S.

I still think that the XX-4 is the best and till someone show different it still the car to bet.
