keep the tc3. buy a new chassis and shiny parts to make you more happy with it.

shiny parts lol If Your a Sportsman I would go for xxx-s. If you were like intermediate go witht tc3. just because the tc3 is more fragile. my opinion

skyline- hmm, i wonder what car you have????, lol. If your running carpet, and beginner to intermitiate, then run a losi, there more RELIABLE, but if your more advanced, then pick the more popular car around your track, also, parts support at your lhs is very important. I would have to go with the losi, there faster.

go Losi, they are much more solid and emit a very satisfying thunk when the hit the boards

losi-stronger, belt driven, and it's a great car even without hopups.

petzl, very true, losi's make a nice thunk, but tc3's make a nice crack when there a-arms break, the losi stays together, so it makes a thunk. The losi also has more electronic space.

Is there really a difference. They both break if someone sneezes on them. I'd get a tc3 because everyone has parts for them, which you'll need.....even if you're a pro.

I would trade only if you feel that you think that you cannot get any faster with your TC3 and you want to try a different car. Just my .02 cents.

So true. lol. May I also add that the TC3's shock towers are also very brittle.

As long as your happy with your car thats all that matters. I'm just not a fan of the tc3. Who knows, it might be because the person it belonged to sucks at everything rc related and when i put that 8x2 in it it was just to much for the poorly tuned car and thats why it torque steered so much and damn near flipped over and/or spun out when I nailed the throttle...
