sorry i don't think the chasis is covered on
that warranty. the dei cast set consists of
shock tower, corner brace, and the front and rear
diff cases.

Thats okay, theres really no legit way to replace the chassis anyways, it's either really scrached up, tweaked, or the unspeakable hah.

Default whats the small plastic tube for ???

I'm building my NTC3 and in the bag where the tank, 3 screws and 3-O rings are there is a small plastic tube about 1/2 inch long by 1/2 inch in diameter with a hole through the middle of it with a 4-40 screw. The instructions do not show or mention this plastic tube.Do any of you know what its for?

Default Ntc3

The piece your talking about is to put in the fuel tank itself. If you go to a sanctioned event the stock fuel tank that Associated supplies with there kit is not legal. If you go to club races dont worry about it just have it with you at all times.

don't forget to RED loctite the 3(front) and 3(back) shock tower screws to the gearbox's.......that will prevent teh towres from getting loose....

speaking of old problems,have any of us OLD TIMERS noticed that all the newcomers aren't complaining about the screw quality any more....or running problems......or anything else alot of people used to complain about....

whats funny,is if you go to the new Mugen mtx3 forum,alot of new owners are having problems with assembly,front belts blowing,and enough problems that one guy says teh nitro tc3 is in the back of his mind...(as in he'd rather have teh tc3)..

my point is that that the tc3 must be one heck of a car....

all the complainers have gone on to the "next big thing",but the Tc3 is still the car to beat....


what strikes me funny is that alot of former owners go to the next car,have problems,but never beat the car up like every one did with teh tc3...

I guess thats teh price you pay for being at teh top of the hill....

[QUOTE]Originally posted by fastharry


ever seen those OS turbos run yet...any idea it they are cranky or not?.......though with OS,I would doubt it....

I haven't posted here in a while. Too busy with my new toy Mrx4 osaka version. Harry, from what I remeber last summer, you were running an rbx12 3 and 5 port. I ran with a guy who has the os turbo and I think the os is a slight step down from the rbs. I am by no means a good engine tuner, and amnot quite sure what gears he was running, but my rb 3port was faster all round.

Wasn't quite sure if I was going to keep my ntc3, but I cannot give it up. Had too much fun with it last year. Question for you guys that have the graphite trays. Does it make a noticable differance in performance? I also need a pipe. Last years is shot.
I am thinking of holding out for the rd logics pipe. Jwf Franie, any idea about when we can expect to see one?

Thanks

Thanks........ I've owned several AE kits all the way back to the original rc10 and believe it or not this is the first time I actually found a piece that was not included in the instructions. I do believe AE kits quality has stepped down a notch ever since they started subing out work to Thunder Tiger (taiwan). It all started with the RTR GT. Prior to this move AE was 100% U.S.A designed and built. Now I wouldn't be suprised to find out the chassis and other componants where made in Taiwan. Dont get me wrong I am an AE die hard and will own an AE kit till the day I stop enjoying this wonderfull hobby and after 10 yrs I dont expect to stop anytime soon.

On the shock towers I have installed 4-40 lock washers sanded down on the O.D. to fit down in the screw tunnels. I have used this very succesfully on other problem areas on several other gas cars and trucks.

it comes with instructions to put the tank insert in

here it is

#7721 TANK INSERT INSTRUCTIONS
1 thread #7874 screw into the #7721 tank insert
2 place the insert and screw onto the end of your 3/32" allen wrench
3 open the tanks lid and slide the insert into the tank wit your allen wrench
4 aling the screw and tighten down the insert into the tank

has a litte pic too

the only thing i found wrong with the ntc3 instruction was the 2 speed shoes where labeled wrong in the book

kinda thew me out for a sec

Either I'm going blind or you are looking at a different instruction book . What section did you find that in? I looked in the book and on the sheet inside the bag with the tank and I am positive it did not have those steps in it.

Thanks anyway partner
