Well I think I wanna buy this car. Does anyone know how fast it is out of the box? Also, is this the car that handles real awesome? Anything better than this for around $219.99? Thanks

Also which is better, the tc3 or tc4?

Stock it isn't too fast, I remember hearing something like 18-20mph (someone correct me if I'm wrong). The handling is race-worthy.

And your 2nd question is more an opinion, but most people will agree in saying that the tc4 is better.

Yeah 20 sounds about right. It handles very nicely I might add.

What batteries do you use? 7.2? Can anyone give me links to good batteries for it and some quick 15 min. chargers? Thanks for your time.

Also is the tc4 faster than the tamiya tt01? Does it handle better as well?

The TT-01 costs about 100 more.. you get what you pay for.

The RTR TT01 ($160) is less expensive than the TC4. Its a great car for the money. It comes with gear diffs and bushings in the wheel hubs. It handles and steers well. It would be o.k. in a parking lot but lacks adjustments / tunability. There are a bunch of hop ups available.

Overall, I think the TC4 is a better deal because it comes with ball diffs and ball bearings. It also has performance advantages.
