It's a good thing to have spare parts for any car. I like the shaft style cars for the sime reason is there easier to work on and the NTC3 is very easy to set up. I got my first belt car last christmas which was the TC5. I like it. If i did go to a belt drive nitro it would be the MTX 4. Like i stated im a Team Associated nut. Parts are easy to find and are cheaper than the newer cars out and easier to find everywhere.
My first post was not to bash, but to warn you of the effects of having a stout motor dropped in. This is from experience from atleast 4 local NTC3 nuts including myself, until we started to experience all of the many weakness of the car. And it just started to add up in cost too much to justify keeping the car. You took the warnings personal and got defensive...i was not bashing, if you felt like i was bashing you, I apologize. I've moved on to the mugen camp and never looked back. I have yet, to break an arm, bend a chassis, bend a pivot ball, melt diffs...ect
I have changed my side belt once, and i don't baby my car, i take care of it, but i run it hard. The clutch adjustment is something you will never have either.....I could go on, but you'll think i'm still bashing, I'm just trying to point you in the right direction. And this is only because I can say, been there, and done that.
