I'm partial towards the Xray. I've had a TC3 and it was the worst car I have ever owned. I love my Xray. One thing is parts. Make sure you can get parts easily. If no one stock parts for Xray or AE in your area then why bother? I'm sure will chime in with opinions...

tc3 is a great car if set up right and wicked easy to find cheap parts for. I race a t2 and love it but parts are hard to find and expensive
