What make and model of car is this?

A guy is telling me it's a TC3 (made by Associated I assuming??) but I want to know for sure. It's part a package deal but I don't know anything about onroad cars.



Thanks!

Craig

TC3 with a BMI chassis conversion and some other hop-ups.

Do you think it's worth anything? He's basicly throwing it in because he's too lazy to pull the speedo and motor out of it.

I was just wondering what I could get for it. It comes with a bunch of beat-up bodies and tires (including a setup for VTA).

The BMI TC3's were the kings of the track in their day. This was someone's all out race car before they upgraded. This car is about 4 generations old (in terms of all touring cars, not just Associated).

Do I think it's worth anything? Well personally no, but I'm not looking for a car like this. And not if you consider you can get an X-Ray T2 (only 1 generation old) for about $100 and probably less.

It would make a good VTA car.

Throw it up on ebay.

I know its a different car, but ive been rebuilding some old serpent impacts, not vintage by any means, but certainly obselete cars which have not had a strong class to race in for the last 10 years. They are still neat cars, and (i guess) still desireable cars to people who surf ebay.

I can sometimes get rollers and parts for these cars on forums for basically what it cost to ship them to me. People will pay alot of money for them on ebay.

You could run VTA with that car and be in an A-main almost anywhere that follows the USVTA rule package.

Get in touch with me if you decide to sell it. I always have new drivers and those on severe budgets looking for reasonable cars to buy.

If you decide to sell it, you should target the Drift scene. They really love the flashy and CF cars. You would be suprised how much $ you could get. Just add the word "Drift" in the auction title.
