Questions?? Difference between NTC3 and TC3?

Iím looking to get into on road racing, and want to get in fairly cheep, ie. not a new car. Iíve found a TC3 for a good price, but was wondering if the Nitro TC3 and the electric TC3 share a lot of the same parts. I can find quite a bit of part for the NTC3 and only a few for the TC3. Having this information would help me in my decision making

Thank you.

The only parts in common are the shocks, diff cases, wheel hexes and that's about it.

Actually the TC3 is closer to the TC4 for part interoperability. Check out RC10.com's part list and it shows which parts carry from vehicle to vehicle. Here is the link to the part sheets and manuals. The Parts list will show you a part and the applicable models that share it on the right. Quite helpful. Things like Spools, diff outdrives, etc can be shared between the TC3 and TC4.
