Default Looking for suggestions - On Road Kit

I'm looking at getting back into the hobby with the wife's permission come the first of the year. I'm currently looking at two on-road kits, which are the T3R from XRay on the low end and the TCX from Hot Bodies on the high end. I'm curious to hear people's opinions on these kits, as well as any suggestions for motor/ESC setups (I'd be running part of the time at T & T in Shreveport, LA and the other part of the time at Mike's Hobby in Carrollton, so any knowledge of setups is greatly appreciated).

Get an Associated TC6 for ease of spare and cost, if you can wait a bit, get the new V3 from Hobbywing soon to be released and for motor, D3 is popular in states and thunder power looks like good motors, otherwise LRP is a safe bet, what class do you intend to race anyway?

Go to your track first! See what the run that will help, also see what classes they run as well. Then go to your hobby shop, then see what they have the most parts for then go with that. build from there.

You can't go wrong with a TC5r. $199 shipped from Team Associated.
