Default Nitro RS4 or Nitro TC3?

I am looking at a couple of used Nitro onroads and was wondering which one is better quality. I have had a nitro RS4 Evo 3 before and loved it but had to sell it for bill reasons. Now I want to get another onroad but I have heard that the TC3 Nitro would be a better alternative.
So, which one is better, the Nitro RS4 or Nitro TC3?

Thanks

Robert

I don't have any experience with the TC3 but I have heard many good things about Associated products. What I do know is that you should get what your LHS supplies spare parts for, unless you don't mind waiting for parts to get ordered.

TC3 is a much better car. You can race it , bash it, and more adjustability compared to the RS4. You can put any type ofengine from .12-.18 no matter what engine shaft you choose.

The NTC3 would be a better option box stock in terms of quality. Durability however goes to the HPI being it is more beefy and suited for parking lot bashing. If you intend to do club racing go for the Associated. Otherwise the HPI is the car for you.

with the correct mounts any motor .12 to .18 fits into the rs4.

i personally have owned 3 rs4 evo 3's and loved them. great for parking lot bashing.

I have two tc3's & they are great cars. Very easy to work on, very sturdy & always run great! I would say get the tc3.
