Default Help - Making Descision

Hi there. Newbie here after a few years out of RC. I tried getting into 1/8 truck, but economy hit pretty hard and lost my job late Dec. Back in the day I used to run Yokomo.

I would like to buy two TCs (Me & Son) to run 17.5s and have plenty of places/parkings where I can set some PVCs and set some layouts whenever we would like to run (besides a track).

I am debating between TC6 and T3 2011 (No interest in anything else but these). AE distribution has changed, so parts are no longer available in every shop as they used to. Seems like XRay parts are more readily available.
Of course price comes into play as well, and unfortunately XRay is more expensive, which leads to some of my questions.

a) In an un-biased opinion..which one would you recommend?
b) Parts quality/durability?
c) Which setup works "best" out of the box? Which one is easier to setup/make changes quicker?
d) Support?
d) Any other aspects I did not mention?

Are the shocks really that difficult to build? We want to have fun while building the car but not a challenge, especially when tuning.

Any recommendations for servo?

BTW - I am in Texas (US)

While the TC6 is a vast improvement over the TC5, it still uses some of the same parts from the TC5 such as arms, steering blocks and c-hubs. Unfortunately these are pretty fragile in comparison to the Xray. The fit and finish of an Xray is unmatched and the build is a dream. Box stock, the T3 2011 is phenomenal and help is easy to come by as well as parts. I'm just glad to hear road racing is getting two new drivers.

Ive Never build TC shocks before the 2011 and I have yet to need to rebuild them after a solid 2 month's of driving twice a week and they feel AWESOME, I even asked a few of the local fast guys what they through and they all said they felt perfect.


As far as servo's go, No clue. the local fast guys gave me the raised Eye brow when they saw a standard 1/8 servo in my rig. They laughed and called us the 1/8 guys.

9550/9551 Futaba is a pretty common servo. I have one in just about every 10th scale vehicle I own.

They aren't hard to build. But some people have a hard time bleeding them to 0 rebound.

The reason no one listed the conversion kit (XRA 300945) for the T3 2010 to T3 2011 is that RC America didn't have it in their price list and Xray didn't put it in their site so I and I'm sure other dealers didn't know to order them. The kits just arrived at RC America and list should be around $280.00 with a street price significantly less. I expect to have them in middle of next week.
