thnx...
I installed a NTC3 steering rack in my electric TC3. As for the shock towers, other than putting a rear tower up front, I extended the rear tower allowing the upper shock mounting position to be further out (standing the rear shocks up straighter).

And the NTC3 shock tower coming loose, common problem. The least you should do is install longer 4/40 screws in the center hole, and the hole on the ring gear side. And use thread locker or CA. If you want to go heavy duty buy "The Fix" and a set of aluminum diff cases.

I installed the green springs in the front to allow more weight transfer to the front hoping that it would eliminate the push. I don't have any problem at turn in, my problem is when I start to apply throttle, the car pushes to the outside of the turn instead of taking the turn.

"The Fix" is a set of 4 long 4/40 screws, and 4 machined aluminum screws (or tubes), that come together from the top & bottom of the car thru the 2 open holes in the shock towers. It increases your shock tower mounting screws to 5 vs. 3. Search "The Fix" under "gas powered cars" on Ebay and you'll find it, $25 for the set shipped.

if you problem in mid turn and exit, then you should soften the back and possibly stiffen the front

also, increase front droop

Why would they upgrade it? It's still winning and is probably the most competitive TC out there right now.

Maybe they are learning from past mistakes..... Associated is well known for setting on their heals and waiting too long to release new cars, normally by the time they do the old one is so outdated they almost have to rewrite the book!!!!
