    If you go with an off road truck you can set it up for road and drive there too. I have two setups of springs and tires for a RC10 GT and it takes about 10 minutes to make the change over. Something to consider. I rat race with soe RS 4 electric and other small sedans and can compete quite well.

    They got a point. You can drive an off-road on-road too but an on-road is strickly on-road. Go with whatever your heart tells you to ;)

    I say off road because you can take it everywhere. Ialso say on road because of the speed and the way it sounds when it speeds past you.

    get off road.it can easily be an on road.with out cutting up the chassis.also,if set up right,they handle,dramaticaly,better on road than any `on road car` (with all wieghts considered),as far as 1/10 scale....

    OFF road cars Do handle better on road when they are set up for on road.better than on road cars because of the wider track.
    they call them onroad because they are stricly for that and not off road.DUH

    i was racing around in a parking lot with two TC3s and two off road stadium trucks.the off road trucks were taking to corners faster that the TC3s.the TC3s were spinning out at the the speed the trucks were taking them.TC3s ar stupid with the little wheels.they do have a nice drive train but.

    I do the same with an RC10GT with a OS CV-R.15 engine to some RS4 and TC3 cars but I also have a Picco Integra (similar to a Serpent)that is a whole higher class. The Integra stomps the crud outta the street setup offroad trucks and smaller sedans esp if on smooth surface. Of course it does have a big block .15 Picco motor ported and signed by Ron Paris(who has passed away now). @ around 2.1 HP it flies

    yesterday i was talking to one of the people i know with the TC3s and they said that the tires are small but they didnt have enough traction because the tires were cold.this one guy ordered tire warmers to heat up the tires before a race.he said that the TC3 should handle better than the street set up stadium trucks.makes sense,warmer tires = sticker tires.but i said my tires were just as cold.
