Hi Guys,

We have NTC3 hop-ups and spare parts in stock right now. Those of you that pre-ordered, your orders are being shipped. Supplies are limited (especially on the factory team option parts!)

TP,

What's up man! you missed our last race at Speed Tech R/C yesterday!

Thanks

Tony,I have the graphite deck also......are you using an on off switch,unplugging,or using somthing else like a KO propo electronic switch?I unplug on my Veteq,but didn't want that on my touring sedans....If you've mounted a switch,any great mounting secrets??

I put my switch in the receiver box. It's cleaner not having the wires all over the place.

Ran mine yesterday...wow...it was awesome with the box stock setup. Best handling car I've ever driven. Accelerates like a rocket.....I got TQ in rubber tire class, and would have qualified in the A main in the foam tire outlaw class. The car is simply awesome.

Yep...ran the stock setup. I could find no faults with the car. It's really easy to drive with that setup. Some might want a little more steering, but I didn't want to mess with near perfection.

Hi guys...I ended up mounting the switch in the steering servo mounting post(bracket) facing up with the switch thru the slot in the plate,then ran the wires thru the bottom loge a regulr installation.....looks good........Hey Tony P......what's your take on the push(steering) issue on this car.....Extreme magasine said the same thing,though they did say the handling was exceptional....just some push coming out of low speed corners..............BTW,that was on foams......I'd like your take on this issue with rubber also..thanks..........

Got the drivetrain built, through bag B...

This is a well built car. I know most of you are running this car already, just adding my 2 cents...

I was pretty skeptical, driving a Mugen the past 2 seasons.....

Good purchase.

Fast Harry:

Any pics hoe you mounted that switch, my Carbon tray comes in this week...

Thanks

I've only run the car so far on rubbers. Worked pretty good. I have foams on it now but haven't run it yet. I can't wait. I'll let ya know my take on it soon.

fastharry - Got my issue last night and all I could do was drool When I read the line about 60mph into a sweeper I was immediately hooked. Guess I'll have one in my pit for this summers nitro sedan series.
