Most of that stuff has been moved to the discontinued models section of their website.

I just got off the Associated website and I noticed that the Nitro TC-3 had been added to the discontinued list. Thats too bad. Another one bites the dust.

Team Associated has discontinued the kits and rtr, but Tower Hobbies should still have most parts. Try searching by part numbers, but parts will dry up over time too.

Wish I had of done more racing with mine over the years, still have two FT kits and a RTR.

What parts are you looking for? There are three hobby shops in my area (Dallas, TX) that still have a bunch of NTC3 parts that I know would love to sell them (move that part of their inventory). PM me a list and I can see what I can find for you.

The Associated of the Chinese toy-conglomerate ownership era we are in right now is not the Associated so many people on here remember. I would venture to say some Traxxas cars even have less slop in them out of the box than many of Associated's current offerings. If you're an Associated fan and you're looking for race cars, you're looking for a new favorite brand, or at least, you should be.

The ntc3 has a huge used market out there already, so if they discontinued it's production, it's OK... I hope the Asian owners understand what Associated stood for, and don't stray away too far off the wagon....lol...

If you ever want to get rid of that FG, look me up. If I don't have one at that time, I would like to take yours off your hands.
