AE has a long history of supporting their stuff way past it's discontinuation point.

On top that, there are going to be a lot of hobby shops stuck with a lot of TC3 parts on hand anyway so unless you're planning on racing a TC3 until 2018, you should be able to find a reasonable amount of TC3 parts easily after the TC4 comes out.

you should be fine.. if you havent noticed yet.. a lot of TC3s are already up for sale in the "for sale" forum.. check it out. ONCE the TC4 comes out, those cars will become even cheaper.

I agree to that!!.. AE doesn't stop producing/making quality parts immediately for the TC3 not because TC4 have been released to the market..

Year 2018 a good vision of its existence...

I doubt they will continue to make parts for it but the simple fact of the car being around for over 5 years the parts are many. I am sure they have a large surplus to keep everyone happy for the next 5 yrs.

What about parts availability for the new TC-4, nothing like building a new car & losing a part or breaking one thats not available yet.
