Both are good car, I ever have both car, I still keep TC3 for bashing,

If its is old 415 then accessing the diff for maintenance or replacement will be always your problem,
to solve this problem you have to buy whole 415 MSX or its conversion kit, please check tamiya website

If you prefer FT TC3, diff access is very easy,
the simply impotant thing is milling or cutting some of center chassis rib slightly so that battery can move closer to chassis center-line, please check TC3 thread

Easy, get the 415... The original car seems more suited to the rug, as it has a 3mm chassis, and you can stiffen it up with the chassis posts. Makes a bloody stiff platform.
And you really shouldn't need to get to the diffs that often... Tamiya diffs are top notch, and stay that way for a long time (just get some ceramic 3mm diff balls, and your all set).
I've owned numerous 415's now, and the quality of the kit is always top notch... not something you can say about a TC3...

ive had a tc4 and ive got a trf415 msx mre and their is no comparison.

shaft drive doesnt cut it anymore

you only need to look at all the major companies,no one has released a new shaft drive.that on its own should solve the conclusion

The 415 would be easier to drive, more durable and can handle mod racing.

The FT TC3 would be easier to keep clean but is really more suited to stock and 19T.

Im sure the TC3 can still keep up with the new cars whether its stock or mod!
