Associated Nitro TC3 RC Car
THE Nitro TC3 is the new and fast rc touring car from Team Associated. It is a gas powered remote control car capable of 40+ mph out of the box.
The Team Associated Nitro TC3 is the gas powered version of the electric TC3. While electric version was fast, the gas powered "nitro" TC3 is insanely fast.
Below is the specs of the ready to run (rtr), remote control nitro TC3:

Nitro TC3 (NTC3) Recommendation
The Associated Nitro TC3 Ready to Run team car also comes with 22 ball bearings to improve speed and durability.
The retail price from Team Associated is $499.99, but the street price is around $315.00. You will need to buy the glow plug, fuel bottle, and glow starter, which costs only $20. The nitro fuel is around $9.99 per quart.
So for the Associated Nitro TC3 to be completely ready to run, the cost is around $345.
Is it worth it? Let us compare it with the OFNA OB4 Nitro RTR. The OFNA cost around $455, complete with all accessories and fuel. However, OFNA comes with a 2-speed transmission, pushing the OFNA OB4 Nitro rc car past 50+ mph!
The Associated Nitro TC3 RTR comes with a single speed transmission, which can push the car in excess of 35 or 40 mph. You can buy the optional 2-speed transmission ($55) to make the car as fast as the OFNA.
In the end, I find the Associated Nitro TC3 RTR to be slightly better than the OFNA. If I was a beginner, I would definitely buy the nitro TC3. However, as some of you already know, I own an older version of the OFNA touring car. And I like it.
So what to buy? If I were to choose today, I would buy the Associated Nitro TC3 RTR, and just have lots of fun with it. And yes, it is definitely worth it.
P.S. Did I mention that Team Associated has produced many world champion rc cars and trucks? That means when you buy a nitro TC3, you are buying a true remote control racing car.
