theatriks - that T3 of yours looked awesome on the bench and was a bullet, up until the belt issue.

Sorry and not to offend but this is the most inaccurate statements made. First they might be a little bit more but you only need one front and one rear arm. The composite material is quite strong. I stock one of each arm and C hub. They've been sitting in my box the last year and I'm by no means a great racer at best average. These cars are almost bullettproof I've made stupid hard hits and broke nothing and if I have it was most extreme stupidity. I've watched a guy drive a Tamiya 417 and constantly break the c hubs with a hit with no more force than I have and I'm talking 4-1 ratio. So what if they cost half the price if you're buying four times more. I say if you're breaking that many Xray parts to make you change a proven MFG than I'd look at your driving and setup before the car. Seriously anyone reading this parts cost are probably less than anyone else, plus almost always useable on next Gen so lower cost in the end again. I'm not sponsored by them I just love the car with my own money plus they hold they're resale value.

Last season I sold my Xray T3 11 and bought a TC6. For me it was a huge mistake. The TC6 always left me missing my old Xray. The TC6 is a good car but I could never get it to feel as planted as my Xray.

I have to agree with the previous post on the parts. I had a ton of extra's for my 11 car never used them, any of them. The Xray is very durable top of the line car and they hold there value when it comes to re-sale.

The TC6.1 cant even compare to the quality of the Xray.

TC6.1 as an upgrade thats too funny

You better include extra bulkheads in your cost for the TC6/.1 ... cause I don't know of anyone at my track that has not bent them. At around $25 a piece, you do the math.

Have run both(well at TC6) & a T3'12.
Box set-up I prefer the Xray, easier to drive, it rolls better and has a more neutral feeling.

I have gone faster with the xray than the TC6, I however did not give the Tc6 enough chassis tuning to get it perfect, my track is swamped with xrays & I got a good set up from a local driver that is working for me.

Like stated above associated parts are cheaper but more fragile, in the end they cost the same to upkeep, I always break on pratice night with the associated.
