They are both fantastic cars so you can't go wrong with either. I say purchase the one that has the best parts support at the LHS you go to, because there is nothing worse then having to wait for a part when you want to drive.

Just my 2 cents

Good advice on the parts support. Also pick one that is popular with other drivers at the track so you can get help and share setup advice.

Associated TC6
- won the latest round of European Touring Car series on carpet
- probably better parts support in the USA
- cheaper than the TCX

I have the TCX, wish I had the Associated.

I would say TC6. Very good platform now and parts are available.

TCX is a great car, but look on the TCX and it seems that parts availabliltiy is still a problem. Not really good for a car that has been out as long as it has.

TCX just won TITC so its a better car had nothing to do with the drivers 100% the car.

I raced my mate who has a TC6 with my TCX and I beat him by 18 laps.. he did a back flip just before the race but I still beat him..

On a serious note pick a colour and buy it.. both cars are awesome. Get the car which has better parts availability in your area.. or go to ur local track and see what others are racing so u can get help on setup..
