I use local-made (Jet hobby from HK) CVD in front for my TC3, and it last for more than 1 yr without any sign of broking/bending. Now I use Jet CVD in all four corners of my NTC3. They are a lot cheaper than the MIP replacement ! (HK$ 90 a pair of CVD vs HK$180 for just a pair of shafts from MIP !)

Thumbs up

Who needs a bigger stronger front oneway diff for your NTC3?

I have a Tech Racing TC3 front oneway for sale. I only used it once and I can't handle the extra steering.

This oneway is much bigger than the one from AE. Heavy Duty stuff.

it comes with the diff gear, hub bearings...basically just Plug and Play.

I'm selling it for $40 shipped. email if interested. [email protected]
over gear is online now

Did you snap the pivot ball itself or where the arm holds it? I would think you would have broken the arm first. If the pivot ball broke it was probably defective.

Is anyone else having problems with the steering.It seems as if the lower swing arms are too flexable or there is too much slop. Also the screw is too long and hits the drive cup. Maybe it needs bearings ?

Order the swing rack and brake bearing kit from Tower(in stock at the moment,#'s in your associated cat)...I did,and using thise and RPM cups on the front had ZERO slop..............BTW,std. bearings won't fit....the swingrack uses a special thinner bearing on the bottom....also,make sure your bushings you have now are FULLY seated on the steering posts.....If not you'll have clearance problems(do the same with ythe bearings when you get them)

Quick tip for the servo saver....

Use a spring off of the slipper assembly for an off road car. It's stronger and won't require you to tighten it all the way down....

Default Front one-way

Does anybody know if the one-way unit from the TC3 will work in the NTC3? All the places that I've checked don't have the NTC3 one-way in stock, and I wanted to try one for this sunday's race.

the oneway until of TC3 can fit in NTC3, however, the oneway outdrive is much longer in NTC3 ...
