In terms of handling, both the losi and the tc3 are fairly equal. I prefer the losi however. TC3's are too noisy for me lol. Pick which one you like but make sure your LHS carries parts.

if i could get a losi xxx-s for 124.99 brand spanking new, is that better than a yok? I havent found any US selling websites that sell the yok so maybe ill just get the losi. 124.99 sounds like an incredible deal. and i already have a radio, reviever and esc so ill just pick up a new servo and a motor. Im thinking P2K stock.

YES!! 124.99 is an incredible deal considering it sells for 219.99 normally. Good choice, get the losi. You will find it very easy to drive and setup to your liking.

Default Trust me and take my advise.

Check this out, you can get a sport TC3 for $150.00. It now comes with light out drives, a race body, bearings and light cvds. It is a race car for half the price and don't let everyone tell you you need a FT TC3 to race.

I use to waste all my money on hop ups. With the money you save just get the IRS aluminum input shafts, Penguin bumper, steering bearings, a heatsink if your racing mod. If your new at racing get some shiny cvds for the front and a aluminum center shaft if you want alittle glitter. That is all you need. Save your money! Trust me, get some good batteries, charger, better servo, and some good race tires.

That is value, not the XXX-S, or the FT TC3. I have both and I wish someone would have told me this long ago. If you got to have a TF car, search the sale forum and buy a used one. I just sold my TF TC3 for at a steal price. I got a XXX-S G-plus. I am going to try it out, but I can see myself going back and getting what I mentioned above.

The Graphite+ and the FT TC3 also come with one common indespensable tool.......THREADED SHOCKS.
