Default Which centax ????

Is there a differance between the K-Factory centax and the Kawahara centax ?

Which one is the better of the two for the NTC3 ?

Do I need to buy a different flywheel or can I use the stock one with a centax ?

Thanks in advance,

both centax's come with their own flywheel and you can not use the stock flywheel with the centax. As far as which is better I would like to hear opinions on both from people that have used them. I have been looking at the Kfactory because it looks smaller in diameter which means you can mount the engine lower and it comes with motor mounts.

go with the k factory clutch. its cheaper in retail and the preformance is better. the clutch just seems put together better too. I though iwas looking at the centex clutch for my serpent impact m2 when i opened the k factory up.

Hey racecar, are you the guy I asked to do a lola for me for 60? If so, I e-mailed you the specs.

Thumbs up LOLA BODY

Me slow with opening my emails on here

Is this the style of body you were after ?

Will need to know what car you race, for holes etc.

The Carbon Fiber effect is no problem

Will be going to hobby store in the next couple of days.

Will be in touch

Okay, thanks to all that helped with my problem...here's what I found out. The gears are just tight, I took the car out today (you guys were talking about the weather, it was 75 and sunny today here in the glorious south ) and ran it some, and the gears have worn in nicely. So there is no problem with the new gears and the RD Logics diff cases (as I had worried).
