Where is everyone getting the idea that the NTC3 are easy to break?!?!?!


Iv had my fair share of realy bad crashes and the worst that it has come out is that i stripped the rear pivot ball thread, and broke a RPM ball cup and still came 2nd in a big race!

And might i add, i run a cx12ps2 and with the 2 broken parts still came 2nd against a pack of MTX3's all with engines that put out 1.35hp and up to 1.8hp!


Nexus, Dont go on what ppl tell you, its your money, its gonna be your car, and its ur desision.

Guys, Im an S owner
ill tell u, yes the S is very tough and durable, but built right so is the NTC3.
I race the same place as chris, and our cars can get hammered if you find a barrier.
Trust me, our club has many NTC3s, and they all stand up just as good as the S.
And put it this way, the S may seem good, but is older then the NTC3.
The NTC3 is newer, people will buy it more then an S since its newer, therefore u will have more support.


This coming from an S driver and lover.
Go the NTC3


But if u want to have a motor alredy with the car, the S is the way to go.
alls u need then is radio gear, but radio gear is also needed for the NTC3 plus an engine.

thanks for all the great feedback.

in the end i believe my plan will be to get a NTC3. since i own the electric version atleast i'll be a little familiar with it, use the same springs, and my LHS always has spares in stock.
