Default XXX-s or TC3?

I'm going to start getting into electric and was wondering which to get. XXX-s or TC3?

I come from a Nitro background.

Thanks,
Puma

Default XXX-S vs TC3

I personally went faster with a FTTC3 then I ever did with my XXX-S Graphite Plus car. The FTTC3 in my opinion is just one heck of an awesome car. Of course I just switched to an XRAY EVO2 car, excellent car as well.


Later,

X-RAY! Get the Best! why settle for either of those cars when you could have the nicest TC ever built?

i'd say the XXX's G+... i had the FT TC3, and parts comparison, the XXX's is far stronger than the TC3. the XXX's is simpler to build and re-build (except for the belt)

as for handling, the XXX's has more off and on power steering than the TC3. However the TC3 is easier to drive...

If you're coming from a nitro background, i'd recommend the XXX's, unless you're driving the NTC3... i also run nitro... NTC3

I was talking to someone who works at the tracks where I race, and he told me that from what he has seen over the years is that the tc3 seems a little twitchier and not as smooth as the losi. I was just in the same boat, and drove a ft tc3, and a xxxs rtr. niether car was ajusted very well, but I liked the way the xxxs handelded compared to the tc3. I will also run mine out in front, or at a local school, and I like the idea of a sealed drive train that the xxxs has, so that no rocks are going to interfere. This is just what I think. I chose the xxxs my self. I can't wait till it gets here . my opinion is to go to your local track, find some nice guys, one with each, and see if they'll let you take a test drive.
