I've got to give him some measurements from the car tonight and discuss further information with him, but he says he'd put it into production if there's enough interest. The TC3 2 speed is much MUCH smaller in diameter than the HPI 2 speed.
Understand that everyone want to drop some grams from the car, but why limit yourself with the NTC3 2-speed gear selection. That has been a complaint for months with the NTC3. You use the two gear choice NTC3 2-speed while I blow by you with my HPI/Serpent multi gear choice 2-speed.

I must correct myself, the only AE parts you're using is the clutch shoes, and the sleeve that slides over the 2 speed shaft..

The HPI spurs fit. They made the gear adapter and everything.

Here's a photo I took of it

you are droping 20 grams of rotating mass correct.but are you going to add that 20 grams as dead weight to bring the car back up tp the legal minimum weight?

Marcos,

it doesn't matter if the car already weighs 1840 grams....

okay, i was wondering how much it helps by changing the rotating mass to dead weight?

I noticed it spools up a bit quicker for sure, and the shifting is much smoother than the stock 2 speed.

Increased mechanical friction. With the 4 gears the car seams to square up quicker out of corners. (You can get back on the throttle sooner) I haven’t used the front diff. 4 gears would work in the front but im not sure of its benefits

We found that the best rear diff combo is…

Loose track- 2 gears with 50,000
High bite track – 4 gears with 30,000

Yep I totally agree. Except to add that on my medium grip track even the 4 gear diff felt better with 30K vs the stock 2 gear with 50K.

Default front toe adjust

what's the easy way to adjust the toe angle in the front? The A-arms seem to be in the way to make larger turns with the nut. How do you experienced guys do this?

also, I purchased a front one way tube form 3racing and have no idea how to install it. there's nowhere for the belt to go onto. Am I supposed to reuse the front diff housing?

The front oneway comes with a oneway pulley. I think you need to buy this.

Hey guys, finished my R40, looking to sell possibly. But if that falls through, I will be doing some racing with it. I am totally new to onroad as a whole, although I'm pretty good with nitro offroad. I'm going to be doing some parking lot races, as well as a medium bite track. Would a one way improve performance on these tracks. I'm also having problems with the front diff leaking, the rear is fine, but I think almost all of the oil is gone from the front after the build. Also, the side belt is really loose, and I havn't figured out a way to tighten it yet.

Looking for some reccomendations on a engine, I could either pull out the standard shaft from my MT-12 and throw in a SG and use that, or I could just buy a new engine, probably around 100 bucks (same price as a new shaft and carb for the mt-12). What would you guys reccomend?

Also open to any setup, foam tire, and hopup reccomendations.

Thanks,

Ryan
