As a beginner, you wont get anything out of one, over another. Buy whichever car has better local parts support for you. All 3 will perform equally well. They Xray will probably be the easiest to setup.

I would say to get a second hand car (as long as spares are available), then if you take it more seriously, get a new one

Thanks for all the replies.Now it's between
TC5 and Xray T2008
Do you think there is going to be a lot of parts for xray t2008 and if so how long ussualy xray make parts for there cars? 3- or more years after they stop making there model .
Let say the T2008 will have parts support for like next 5 years?

Best place to find parts for Xray is on Ebay. Here's a cross reference chart to let you know what parts are interchangeable between cars.

The TC5 is also a good car, like I said I own both, both are easy to set up and drive. Associated quality isn't anywhere near the quality of Xray but it's still a good car. Parts are available in abundance and will be for many years to come not to mention as far as parts go everything is about half of what it would cost to purchase new. Like I said with Xray parts, Ebay.

T3 parts is pretty much a T2. So dont worry about that :P You can take almost everything from T2009 to 008. so problem there. Xray will have parts atleast 2 more years for these cars. But if you can find a T2009 or T3 cheap. buy one of them. whats your budget? If your budget is high, get a new car.

An Xray T2R would also be a good buy if you want a new car that will not break the bank. You can get it for under three bills, and many of the parts are compatible with the 007, 008, and 009. It is basically a T2 007 with composite instead of woven graphite parts. It can be upgraded as you see fit but is very capable in its stock form.
