Default How do 3Racing parts compare to Tamiya parts?

I have a TRF416 with a lot of beat aluminum parts, some are striped and was planning on replacing them. A lot of the 3Racing parts look identical but are a lot cheaper than Tamiya ones and I was wondering how to they compare build quality and such to factory Tamiya ones.

If you were going to race TCS you would have to use Tamiya parts to be legal. If not the 3R parts will work and might be cheaper cost wise.

As 3Racing devellops for Tamiya (amongst others), most parts will fit perfectly and are not of less quality.

3R works hand-in-hand with tamiya. Not only are the parts cheaper with the same quality as tamiya, but they supply parts that tamiya may have discontinued. They do good work in keeping cars running.

Thanks for all the replies. I guess 3Racing it is, being that they seem to be a lot cheaper than Tamiya factory parts. One more question, how are the Square screw sets? They seem like nice sets that have both Ti and aluminum screws.
