Do you happened to know the setup AE team drivers used there?


I can put about 20 or so pics on my website then set up a link so they can appear here.

Hi guys, I've posted 30 pictures on the HPI site, more to come. Here's the link:

Click on the forums button, then scroll down to the "Non-HPI Nitro Kits". Click there, then go to the "Nitro TC3 Owners Club New Thread", photos start on the bottom of page 172. Enjoy.

Default Pipe Mod

Can anyone tell me how to modify the pipe, specifically, how to cover the existing hole and where to drill the new pressure fitting. Also, what's with the gas tank mod? Any input?

Thanks!
Angel

Adios1-

Cut the Rear Exhaust Header 1/2 inch off the end.

Get some JBWELD at your local Hobby Store or Home Depot and use that to cover the existing hole in the pipe where the Pressure Tube goes. Drill a new Pressure Tub hole toards the end of the pipe (at least after the stinger so that the most of the pressure is released there first and then hits your pressure tubing). Put a pressure nipple on the pipe in the hole that you drilled and use JBWELD to keep it in place.

Take another Pressure Nipple and see how wide the end of it is and drill a hole in the lid of the fuel tank all the way through just smaller then the width of the pressure nipple. Screw the nipple into that hole. That is pretty much it.

If you want a easier solution just cut the header 1/2 inch off the end, and go buy the new tank that your local hobby store should have. It has the new pressure nipple on the lid already.

The new AE fuel tank is part #7719, and works fine.

Default Foam Tires

I am trying to learn about foam tires, can someone tell me what shore means? Does anyone have any suggestions on what tires to use? I heard Ellegi are great tires.

That is a thread all about Shore and what it means.

Ellegis are good...Jaco Nitro Shoes seem to be a very popular choice.

This is the pic of the Baker's car NTC3NUT took at the IFMAR race.

Does anybody else see the change in ackerman in the picture?
Did he actually drilled the hole in between the holes?
Any comments?

I wonder what the difference is in running the longer ballstuds on the steering rack to the stock ball stud area on the steering knuckle compared to running the stock ball stud in the steering rack to the new hole inthe steering knuckle

On steering, the NTC3 manual shows #6273 ball ends (natural / the longest of three) in the picture.
Then the manual's standard setting recommends #3857 (the shortest) which is listed as Standard in the set up sheet where #6270 (longer than #3857 and shorter than #6273) is listed as an option.

Since Baker's ROAR nats in Cincinnati setup sheet says he used #3857, I'm guessing that he used the same ball ends this time.
Then he drilled an hole in the middle.

I'm lost here.

You know, up until now I never noticed the change on Baker's car. I went back and checked all my other photos, and he was the only one to do this mod. What do you think it would add? More steering throw? It is cool to see some of the experimental, or "top secret" mods/parts the factory guys try. The exhaust mod, the toe-link mod, this steering knuckle mod, ect.. I have 4-6 pairs of extra plastic knuckles laying around. I may try this out over the next few weekends and see what difference it makes. If it's any good then maybe I'll modify a set of carbon knuckles.
