Car worked very good this weekend! Driving skills still lacks, but getting much better. We had to race the Bmain this weekend, but won it and bumped to the last starting spot in the A main. Car was on a rail and moving forward when driver error got on top a roadrail,(roadrail track systems) sent the car side ways back onto the track, got T-boned by another car, sent the metal radio tray into the driveshaft. This slows the NTC3 very much!

Here's a chassis setup we've been using and seems to work pretty good for us.
Track is new semi smooth pavement with a few small bumps, sealed and no traction compound on track or foams. This is a short track with some tight cornering and 100 ft back stretch.
14 to 16 second lap times.

Front
60 wt. oil
#3 pistons
Copper springs
front adjustable sway set at 45 degrees
12 degrees castor (more on power steering) both clips backside of a-arm
-2 camber
camber links inside hole
0-toe in
-4 droop
CRC Track magnets #2119 (db purple) trued to 63mm
balldiff 1/4 turn out
ride height 5mm

Rear
35 to 40Wt oil
#3 pistons
Copper springs
Camber -2
2.5 toe in
-4 droop
balldiff 1/4 turn out
.078 swaybar
upper camber links inside hole
CRC Track Magnets #2120 (purple) trued to 62mm
ride height 5mm

This may help some people starting with the chassis if not good for others change spring rates first before trying something else. This setup with same spring rate front and rear, gives the car the same feel front and rear.

bb,let me know what happened to the receiver box and driveshaft.email me your adress and ill get you out a new box.
by the way, im running a very similar setup.i managed to beat my fastest lap time.went from 14.5 to a 14.3.i was the only one who ran in the 14's yesterday.and also set the new track record.i tq'ed ran first place the first 6 minutes until i went into pit and fouled a glow plug .it was only a 10 min main so i just called it quits.car was unreal.i managed to stay off the pipes all night.
i was overall a very happy camper.i felt so comfortable with it.

my set up was for a low traction minor bump track:

38 tires all around(yokomo)
red springs rear
copper front
#3 front pistons
#2 rears
40 wt shock oil all around
front and rear sway bars(not blade)
9deg. castor
2 deg. toe(rear)
2 deg. camber (rear and front)
0 deg toe (front)
no traction compound
1/8 turn out on front diff
1/4 turn out on rear


car was very stable,next to no roll,and didnt have to brake in the corner very much.only when i was trying to pass.i was able to carry massive speed through the corners.if it wasnt for that damn glow plug.lol

If you look at the chassis theres a metal receiver box that the plastic Ae receiver tray sits in. Yes, it bent the metal box into the shaft. Maybe spot weld the box in the seams Jason. If I can get it bent back out straight that's what I'm gonna try. It will help. The odds of bending it in a wreck is there but not really good odds.. Just my luck is all! Not too knock the chassis, it's a sweet deal man! but the tray is the only weak link, and if theres a weal link anywhere, it always seems to haunt me!

Running on a parking lot. Traction is decent and can be hard on foams. I'm going to leave the set up I have on the car and recheck droop, camber and the like.
