They'll fly out because Losi added a little "battery launch ramp" to their car

I knew Trinity and Losi were in cahoots

Yes and no.. It's strong to a point but if you hit right it will break,but so will other TC's,Touring cars are strong but if you look at most on road tracks they dont use "soft" walls and most of the time when you do hit something it seems like it's at an angle and the force of the hit is centered on a small area,thats why TC's seem like they break alot,wider bumpers seem to help,As far as the best TC's..their are none..most seem to work about the same,As you said you wanted one that was easy to work on,So look at the cars design and see how long or how hard certain "jobs" can be..like changing a arms(you broke one..hitting the wall.. )getting to the diffs,putting the motor in..etc,The Losi is an easy car to work on(IMHO changing the A arms and getting to the diffs is an easy job)I have a Pro4 and getting to the diffs Is NOT an easy job,but I know that and it's never been a problem for me.Go to the local track and see what car YOU like..

You said a mouthful buddy!!!! When I had my TC3, a good broadside smack on a barrier that is too hard will snap my A arms in two! Then it got to where I'd stick it on the pvc pipe down the straightaway and then it'll spin out of control......

Why? somewhere along that straightaway a PVC was loose enough to catch my rim, and snap my a-arms! So I sold the TC3, brought a used HPI Sport 2, turned it into a Pro2 and took home a few wins.

What you think I win EVERY race after that? Hell no.

I just drive.

Belts breaking - not in my experience.

Probably because I thought they will break, I'd better make sure I have a spare, or my day will be done.

Probably 4+ years on a TA03, 3+ years on a Corally C4, no problems with an assassin - 10 months and counting.

Cheers

Arrow ...

posted messeges prove that everybody is trying to beat the TC3.

other companies are desperately trying to build their own TC3

non-TC3 guys, maybe you should ask your self why can't you do well with a TC3. don't think, the problem is just you.

Come on, you should know english better than me (not being english but french indeed). "a" piece of string refers to any piece of string. "that" or "this" piece of string refers to a particular piece of string.

In conclusion, "a" piece of string could be 0.000001 mm aswell as 1000000 m...

Hi all you racers out there,

The best TC is the one you can handle the best!
If you're having a lot of money than I would buy 4 or 5 TC.
They all have their pro's & con's on the track.

But if you're just like me and want to race a good car, you should go with the X-ray.
It's durable, light, and fast, and has the highest quality parts!
The service is good, and setups are easy to find!

Go with the best, go X-ray.

There is no perfect touring car.

Just get one you love/like and you'll take care of it.

If there were a best touring car, then why do we have so many different cars at the track?

When all else fails, make personal attacks...

Nice.
