Thumbs up New to onroad, TC5 or Xray T3??

Hey I want to get into onroad racing and was wondering if the xray t3 or the tc5 should be the car to get?? I heard the Tc5 breaks easily, or is this not true? Thanks in advance!

Hey
I think that the Xray T3 would be the car to have. I have one it is very very nice also it don't brake that often, i have not broke mine yet and im not the best driver in the world.

Once you start buying parts for the tc5 after breaking c-hubs so much you would have spent enough to buy the xray.

Haha i'm doing the exact same thing, i've been racing 12th scale for the last 7+ years, now i'm making the move to modified, I've been doing my research. The xray attention to detail in documentation, and the updates that they have on their website is incredibly impressive.

I think other manufacturers need to step up their game in regards to their documentation and getting the latest information online with setups of recent events etc.

I'll be getting the rubber edition Xray T3

Xray T3, currently the best built car in the world. Go look around your local track, see both cars. Check for slop. U'll def. go with the T3
