Exclamation My new TC3 56k=no

Recently Purchased a TC3 from ebay for a great price. This is a big step up from me have always run xmods and other small scale RC's so this is my first REAL hobby grade car. Just wanted to see what everyone thinks.

When I got it , was just completely filthy. Time for the break down.

Body was pretty beat up

Dont have any pictures of trying to remove the paint and it just would not budge. Said screw it and painted the outside. It was pretty banged up anyways so it will just be a beater till I get a decent body and it can be done right.

Left in the garage over night and pollen had settled on it didnt stick though

Well thats it in a nutshell. Still waiting on a few parts to come in before its up and running. Overall im pretty happy with it. I think it came out pretty well, just need to trim some of the excess paint around the windows and it will be fine.

Lastly any suggestions? Not really feeling the wheels Im looking to run on pavement and seems like smooth tires will just get eaten up, someone care to point me in the right direction.

oh yayer!

Those a plain dish rims...not really scale looking, just designed for racing. If you are just bashing around, go for some of the 26mm rims made by HPI...definitely mode scale looking.

Or you can try some BBS replica rims made by
