Hey, my birthday is this saturday. My parents asked me what i wanted for my birthday.. andi really don't want anything. Then i thought about getting the 2.5 engine, and conversion for my maxx and getting rid of my lame OS. But then i thought of getting a street car? What would u guys pick if you could get one? The street car i was looking at was the associated tc3 plus with .15 engine and 2 speed transmission. What would u guys do if you had the choice? I already have a maxx and a sport. The only things ive done to them is, the maxx .15 pro is in the sport and it absolutely flies. And my maxx has a OS .15 cv-x in it, and a proline suspension kit. So what do u guys think? What should i do?

Well get the TC3. You will have alot of fun with that going around 55mph then tap the brakes then turn the wheel and you can slide around.

Idk about yours, buy my parents wouldnt just shell out the cash to buy a 1/8th buggy. If your happy with your maxx now, then i would get a tc3.

i would get the tc3 plus it is very nice and high quality. my friend got one, very good stuff. the engine is isnt that good though, i would just use it till it dies or you get sick of it and want a new one. and if you have a OS engine that is much better then any traxxas motor, OS is just a better engine maker.

I have both.
If you want an onroad go with the NTC3. If you want an offroad go with the T-Maxx.

But since you already have a T-maxx go with the NTC3

Do you have anywhere you to race the TC3? Doing speed runs can be fun, but after alittle while it gets old and then you have a shelf queen.

I personally would think of what area I run at, and the limitations of the vehicle based on that. You could also just have your parents do an "IOU" for the future if nothing really wow's you right now.
