I just don't like the tc3 because its associated,I like the shaft drive concept..its easy to work on,easy to drive,accelerates harder than any belt car..its a system of the future..
How exactly does a shaft accelerate better than ANY belt car? I have a Reflex with a Novarossi 5 port that out accelerates the two fastest NTC3 cars at my local track. And we are not talking about out of the box NTC3s either. These are top notch cars with all the best stuff. My Reflex drivetrain is bone stock, oem gearing and all.

I think making a blanket statement like a shaft car out accelerates a belt car is a bit of a stretch. The shaft has it's advantages, as does the belt car. They also have downfalls.

the car is awsome.... ~~~!
Is the steering really more aggresive than MTX-3? I can't decide between these 2 cars that i want to get. How durable is the car? Thanks

Oh I agree 100%. The two car at my track who always seem to be the fastest use two totally different driving styles. One runs the car with almost no brakes (even though he has a diff in the nose) and the other does what I do. Run and Gun! I try to keep my momentum up in the corners but I use a fair amount of brakes and I overdrive the entry into most turns and use the throttle & brakes to get the tail end around and head to the next turn.

Mark you need a Futaba to go w/new car.

Default Are spacers needed for the front one-way

I am just now assembling my car and I'm at the part where I attached the front lower and upper arms. During this step is where you insert the dogbone.

However, There is no way this could be right. you turn the steering to one side and the dogbone falls out.

It looks like the outdrives on the one-way needs spacers or something to space them out a little further.

Anyone else had this problem or know how to fix it?

Get an MTX-3
Just kidding, this is the same problem I had with the MTX until I put the CVD's on.

Add o-rings supplied in the kit into the outdrives front and rear. The addendum and parts were in a separate bag in my kit.

I'm using the Reflex universals in the front of my G4.

Cool

Brandon, how do you find the available gearing on the G4? I took a peak at it and found that their internal pulleys are exactly the same number of teeth as the V1RR or the Reflex NT in this case. However, the supplied pinions were pretty large. If I could remember correctly, the available 1st gear pinions are 19T, 20T and 21T and the 2nd gear pinion are 23T, 24T and 25T. Available spurs are 50T, 51T and 52T for the 1st gear and 46T, 47T and 48T for the 2nd gear.

With the available spurs and pinions, I don't think the car will be as punchy as say the V1RR/Reflex or the MTX-3 for that matter on a small technical track...

I think the car will be just as fast out of a conner as any other car but You might see some more smaller pinion gears coming out soon.

there should be some Green O-rings that came in your kit in a separate bag put them in see if it still does it...

Smaller pitch ala the Mugen .08 module?

Are their gears 0.8 pitch? By their size, the gears sure look like they are...

I would not know if having 0.8 gear modules help in acceleration. I would think they provide for better transmission efficiency and smoother shifting of gears.

This is just what I have observed between a MTX-3 and a G4 coming out of the corners on the same tight track... My suspicion was correct that the highest internal drive ratio of the G4 is 6.91. I think the stock out of the box gearing gives an even lower internal drive ratio of 6.44 versus MTX-3's stock internal drive ratrio of 7.43

Perhaps like what Brandon mentioned, K factory would probably come out with smaller tooth optional pinions...

Can you fill me in on what the final drive ratio is on the NT1000 Reflex by chance? I switched motors from my Serpents to my Reflex, using the same clutch & pinions and the Reflex accelerates much harder with a loss of top end speed. I am 100% sure the reflex is geared higher (numerically speaking) but I am curious as to what the gearing is exactly.

Thanks.
