Default NTC3 or Yokomo GT-4 RTR 2 for racing?

Ultimate Hobbies is having an awesome sale today and I want to get one of these cars to race with. Which is better? I know the Yokomo has issues finding parts, but it seems a lot faster. I know I can't use the .18 engine to race, but I can just sell it to get a .12 in there. The TC3 is the regular version, not the Factory Team. Any input would be great.

I'm partial to the GT-4 , swap out the .18 for a nice .12 and stand back.

I must admit I'm leaning towards the GT-4. The NTC3 is not the Factory Team version, so it's not exactly top of the line. Either way, I'm going to have to buy an engine and with the Yokomo at least I can sell the radio gear and .18 engine to offset some of the cost. Granted, the TC3 does have a lot more part support. Are any parts from the electric TC3 usable in the nitro?

My LHS carries a few parts for the Yoke, and what ever else I needed I would order from Yokomo,Speedtech or Bruckner. If your opposed to mail ordering your parts, get the TC3. I always found the parts I needed.

I bet you are talking about the TEAM kit (not the factory team kit)....I never own a Yokomo, but I don't see the TEAM kit NTC3 is any slower then GT-4...........no way.

If NTC3 is not any faster....at least, the same speed as GT-4, but I am sure NTC3 is faster in any day and time...I don't even need to say NTC3 parts support are 100 times better and cheaper then the Yok.....
