No guys, the chassis has nothing to do with stripping gears, if anything it should help with the gears. It has less flex so less pressure on shaft resulting in less pressure on the diff gears and brgs. Alot of the gear trouble is like Harry has said, hitting the wall on something on the throttle . The gears just won't take that kinda abuse. We always try to be off throttle when we hit something with the front. I usually strip the rear diffs instead of the fronts.
Hell, until the new gears came out we would strip a rear diff each weekend.
An easy way to tell if the gears are about to go in the front diff, is to check the up and down slop or play in the front input shaft. When the gears get wore down, you will have more than usual play in this area.
As far as chassis impressions go: I dunno what else to say? It's very sweet. The best money I think I have ever spent on the car. The car looks and is so much better planted to the track now. The car is so much easier to drive now and it stays consistant,
Hell, last weekend I think I took the body off the car maybe 3 times, once to replace the diff and the other 2 times to just make sure it was all still in there!
Cleanup is a breese now , without the upperdeck., a front servo can be change in less then 10 mins. I use the K factory steering rack also, 8 screws out and the front diff and steering assy. is removed.
I am completely content with the car now. I have no plans of jumping off the NTC3 boat, until maybe next season.
I have heard and confirmed rumors that someone here in the forums, but I will not name, has a very new, super light and totally different configuration for a shaft car.
It's due out sometime early next year I believe. I can't wait!.

Damn, diff gears priced seperate use to be $2.50, now white diff gears are $4.00 and it's not Delrin? Hmmmmm! Teflon based maybe?

Default Where To Buy

Ok in 2 weeks I got a race and I don't want excuses. A more consistant car sounds good to me. Where do I get this chassis and what is the price? Looks good. BBNTC3 raves so much and I feel like I need one. Plus beyond that I just feel the car could handle better. So where do I sign up? [email protected] or [email protected]

Another note: crazynut racing clutch shoes, 3 shoe stock clutch or centax. Opinions please.

I'm not trying to rave about the chassis just stating my results with it. It's been dialed with my usual setup for 2 local tracks since we sit the car on the track. I have not had to chase setups all day long like before. I'm a happy camper with it, for sure!

Isaac: Not trying to cut on Crazynut but to me alum shoes will grab quicker but wear the clutchbell and shoes very fast. K-Factory centax is sweet, I use it! The smoothness and the adjustability of a centax is hard to beat!

Hi Jay. What's up? Yea man, I don't have to chase the car anymore. And the other nice point is, when it comes off the turn and you nail the throttle it goes straight? What gives with this? LOL

Got a very big race here tomorrow. Hard hitters come here from 3 states to play at this race. Can't wait to see what we can do with these guys now! I'll keep you posted! Bob
