All of the GRP tires have a different rubber for the front tires (even if they show the same shore rating)
The rear rubber has more traction but wears faster.

ME-student, did you do more testing on this? I'm interested in doing the same thing on my NTC3 and would like to know how it went. Are you happy with it's performance? The manifolds you used, were they 2 rear exhaust ones or 1 rear and 1 side?

madcat prime: i use 2 rear exhaust headers, but side exhaust header should work too. the result was ok, because my centax clutch wasn't set right. but it did perform like the AE pipe, but alittle hotter. probably around 10-15 degree. i will do more testing this weekend..
i think this set up will be just as good.. or even better than the AE
pipe...

Thanks ME-student. Update us on your further testing. I definitely will be doing this as soon as I order the parts needed. Would've tested myself but being in a country where I might be the only NTC3 running, it's hard.

Glide-1, which part of Cebu are you from? I too am from Cebu (lived in Mandaue) but now in New Zealand. Do you have an NTC3 as well? Where'd you get the kit? See you around.....Pit Senyor!

you could add a little toe to the rear and that should give
you more rear traction for rubber tires stick to 2 degrees camber or changing inserts if you thing you are overheating the tires
to quick

Default brakes

Hey guys, does the ntc3 stop real quick from full speed just like the Vone Rs? I've noticed they could quickly brake when they want to while my car slows down but keeps rolling before stopping. Is this normal?
