ive had both and Started first with tc3 and back with it. So i Say tc3
1st easier car to work on.
2nd easier To find parts.
3rd more setups cause been out longer.
4th you have choice of aftermarket Chassis like (warpspeed)
5th shaft is more efficient

i know losi has some better things than tc3 too.

Just try both cars, Best thing to do. Hold both in hand see whats your budget and whats difference in part prices and Durability. I can say that I believe Losi is a Stronger car than tc3 I think. But that all changes how good you are. IMO tc3 is a faster car though.

TC3 POWER, honestly you will get so many differing opinions on this subject, you will probably be more confused then when you started. Instead, you should go to your local track(if you have one) and see if racers will let you test there cars, afterall it is your money and you should decide what you are going to do with it.

Alright, here's the deal with vs threads, the TC3 drivers will obviously tell you to get a TC3, and the XXXS drivers will obviously tell you to get the XXXS. Either way you go, you get a good car, so do an eenie meenie miny mo and buy the winner.

I'd say get a Losi. They're an easier car to drive and you won't be setting it up after every smack to the boards.
