I know alot of people are complaining about stripped gears using the one-way. How about the solid frt axle?? I've never ran either, but AE says the solid axle is better for small tight tracks. What are your thoughts on this guys??Thanks.

Solid front axles are a lot better on twisty tracks. I have been running this set up on my Yokomo for over a year now. Very easy to drive. On faster flowing tracks I run solid axles front and rear to real good effect.

I would assume it would be the same for the NTC3.

The solid front axle to me is better than a oneway, but thats just me. The alum. cvds wear out pretty fast and will twist up like a pretzel and fall out of the diffs or they we'll break. I went to the MIP shiny TC3 cvds for the electric car, more rotatating mass, but problem solved! No more twisting or wearing out the pin hole in the cvd. I think Titanium Racing has the cvds in Titanium now, thats my next purchase.

for larger sweeping tracks i still like runing a one way to
get more off power steering. for tracks with a lot of tight
turns i just lock up the stock ball diff and have a bit tighter
setting on the rear.

You can't get the NTC3 stock ball diff to really lock up, because of the friction disc added to the diff. We sometimes use the electric diff for that purpose it will setup alot tighter. AE says the electric diff will wear out in less than 10 mins of running , but thats not really a true statement.
ilaybrk: Thanks for the tip on the Titanium Racing cvds, I'll waite and see if they are redesigned.

Default Diff gear meltdowns

I was just about to order the rd logics package when a thought came my way. Will the aluminum diff cases hold more heat, especially in the summer, and add to the diff gears melting quicker or more frequently? Anyone have any thoughts about this.

Freeing up the driveline? I did'nt know you could get it much better! It's nothing like the Electric TC3 drivetrain as far as freeness goes.
Brake arm brgs and steering rack brgs, tank mods and exhaust pressure outlet mods are the first mods or hopups I would be interested in.
I know the NTC3 forum is long, but all the tips and tricks you need are in the back pages. Just take your time and read.

Thanks thefuzzclub

The shell I used was purchased here in New Zealand (I guess it's being manufactured or distributed somewhere in the south). If I'm not mistaken, Speedtech should have this on their website (forgot to tell you too simonfdr). Try them first. If they're not available, I may be able to find one for you here. It's a good shell and has thicker plastic than the others. You'll like it. Cheers.

I was talking to one of the oldtimers at my track and he mentioned that he glueds the friction ring on the diffs so that they could be run looser. He said that they used to do it on the diffs of the old 1/8 scales. I have yet to try it myself, but waht do you guys think?

Thanks,

Steven Muller

Default Engine for ntc3

Planning to buy a new engine for my ntc3. Choosing between OS 12TR and novamega 3p. Please advise recommendations. I plan to race and our track is technical with less straights.
