Default Nitro gas

To all Senior NTC3 owners:
Reccommended percentage of nitro gas according to the manual is 10 - 20%. I see 25-30% nitro gas in our LHS. What would be the effect if you use a higher percentage? What % would you reccommend to make your engine long lasting.

Default OS TR Turbo and NTC3

Is anybody using the OS TR Turbo with the Nitro TC3? Any change in the gearing to mellow out the torque of the engine?

It lists 1.3 HP at 30,000 rpm

Thanks

Ok since nobody decided to ask I'll give you guys the lowdown. I have done 6 of those chassis for friends and for myself, I have been running one since september and they work great. Some one mention to get rid of the cut out under the engine, I will probably do that. I can do the machining for $15, plus 5 for shipping. I will only do chassis that are sent to me, and I would be willing to do chassis by other manufacturers(ie. I could make the cut outs under the cases bigger ). [email protected]

Thanks,

Steven Muller

Default GPM titanium pillow balls

Has anyone bought a set of these? They are for sale all over Ebay & a few of the online stores. I am putting my NTC3 together for next season, and I normally use the Titanium Racing pillow balls. I saw this complete set closing on Ebay without a bid for $25, and I couldn't resist. I figured, even if they're junk they'll last a few practice sessions, and a Ti-Racing set costs me $40. I got them today and opened them up to check them out. I noticed that the shafts where about a 1/4" shorter than the Ti-Racing pillow balls, no big deal, right? I grabbed my box of new graphite parts, pulled out a set of arms, and went to thread a pillow ball in. They don't fit! The shafts are far too small in diameter, they dropped right into the arm with absolutely no force whatsoever. I have contacted the seller, and am hoping to get a refund. I wanted to let you guys know, watch out for the GPM stuff, at the very least the pillow balls.

Boomer, A fellow NTC3 racer on the RC Car Action site told me that the GPM pillow balls are for their aluminum arms only, that's why they don't fit (and probably why I won't get a refund). Oh well, he has the arms & I offered the pillow balls to him cheep. No sense in taking a total loss.

Default rx battery Q

i'm ready to buy a rechargeable rx pack for my ntc3. i'm looking at two different packs, the trinity 1/8 onroad flat pack, and the hobbico hydrimax:
http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXLX50&P=7

i know for a fact that the trinity pack will fit, however i'm unsure about the hobbico one. both the packs are the same length (3.3") and height (.72") however the hobbico pack is almost a 1/2" wider than the trinity (hobbico is 1.77" and the trinity is 1.29"). The radio tray on the ntc3 is around 1.75", so theoretically it "should" fit, but i know the chasis' edeges are flared up so i'm not sure...

does anyone know if these hydrimax packs fit?

yes, the GPM pillow balls indeed does not fit the AE graphite Arm. The GPM pillow ball can only be used with the GPM metal Arm. they are shit quality.......
