Mission.

The best? Well, it depends on the purpose. Some cars are better suited for slippery tracks, others do better on carpet. What do you want to do with the car? Racing, bashing? What kind of surface, carpet, asphalt...?

The TC3 and XXX-s are fast everywhere, but to me the Losi wins hands down because of the cool factor!!!!!

Right now I have to give my vote to the FT TC3.

I've driven TC3's for the last 4 years now. Absolutely awsome car, never had a situation where the car wasn't capable of winning, just problems with the driver .

I have also owned two Losi's. One original XXX-S and now a Graphite Plus. I wasn't impressed by the original, could never find any speed from it. The new Graphite runs great, but I don't find it as aggressive as the TC3.

As far as the best car for you goes, make sure that whatever you chose has support at your local hobby shop.

I've owned both the XXX-S/G+ and the FT TC3, both are fast cars but I find my TC3 is faster through the turns. I race on parking lot.

Plain simple,if you race stock TC then I perfer the Team Factory TC3 for 19T I rather have the XXX-S-graphite Plus.. The X-Ray is a good car ,but parts are costly,The Tamiya Evo3 once they take or get all the bug out then I wouldn't mind having one

I think the Xray has to be right up there. My Xray is awesome. It is the best out of the box package out there in my opinion. All the adjustments you could want already at your fingertips..I would love to try the Losi XXX-S Graphite Plus though.. I love that sealed drivetrain....
