Most peeps at my track have the TC3 and I have one too. I like the TC3 b/c everything is open, wut I mean by dat is dat it's more easier to work on ur car then a Losi b/c in a Losi, it's all cramped up. I also think dat it;s better to handle but dat's just my opinion.

rcracer...I hate to do this but I think you qualify. Let me first say that I'm a huge Tamiya fan and I'm insulted that you didn't even consider a TA04 or a 414m2 or a Evo. But ...Since you don't have easy access to a shop, and you are pretty new to RC , I would suggest you go with the TC3 .

Parts are easy to get at almost any decent shop
The car has a HUGE group of users and that means lots of help
it's a pretty simple chassis to work on
Hop up parts are numerous
Proven performance

If you want a good deal on the graphite plus try Andy at the web site (hobbymania) listed Just below. He has a special deal on the XXX-S Graphite version at the moment.

Default Pro-3 is JUNK????

Hey thats not fair.

I really like my Pro-3. Took a few hop-ups to get it competitive but I only paid $119 usd for the kit. Best thing is that almost nobody races them so it's fun being the underdog.

For 99% of us, the TC3 or the XXXS are much better choices and much easier to tune.

Hi Steve,

Do you know approximately how much they would charge for a XXX-S GP kit and some allen drivers to be shipped to NZ?

And how long would it take usually?

Thanks

Trevor
