I'm from the Philippines and everyone is racing in most of the tracks using 5 port engines.

Default one way

hey number 11

try the K Factory one way. it looks the goods, even though i've used the associated one way for over 6 months now i"ve had now problems with it, maybe I don't drive hard enough ( rb X12 rody roem tuned), but if you are having problems try the K Factory one way it uses a bigger bearing than the associated one this may cure the problem.

Anyone else have the same problem?
Hi xray vision perhaps the k factory tank might solve the problem

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,
Never Enough what i have seen of the kfactory centax looks pretty good instruction look well detailed in colour so for first timers you can put it togeather with ease.

Thanks mugen kid but i don't think the k factory tank will in with a pullstart engine, bit like the chassis have to do a bit of filing to get a pull start on it...! Looks like the nipple will work
Thanks for the help racers

anyone here knows the size of the screw thats on the servo( futaba 9404). Its the screw that hold the servo arm. Is it ok to apply threadlock on it because I already lost 2 screws? Are u guys using rubber grommets for the servo? Also where can I buy the rx battery (separate because Im going to make it myself) AND the glow plug battery ( sanyo cadnica kf-1300sc). I called the 2 LHS here and they both told me that they dont have those parts. Homedepot, walmart etc. would be better but if they don't have those I'll just have to order them online. thnx

btw what's the maximum current (maH) that I should have on rx battery?

note: posted this too in another forum

I am not sure about the screw but unless you have metal gears I wouldnt advise loctiting it in. You run the risk of snapping the head gear. As for batteries, their is no limit on the mah of the RX battery but 6v is the limit I would run in a car. I use 600mah 6v packs and find these adequate for running 3 full racing days without charging.

For that other battery you are looking for you could try the following website.

...After reading mostly positive comments about the K-Factory Centax I decided to buy one...But after seeing the price at Tower $131.99 P/N K1215 I just couldn't get myself to order it . Why is the K-Factory So much more expensive than the Kawahara $89.99. Is the K-Factory made out of Gold or what ..j/k..lol

Can someone tell me where I can get a better deal ????

Just buy the MIP clutch for ~$12.00. The 'team' tested all the centax clutches and were not impressed, too little surface area because of the smaller flywheel on the NTC3, not enough to transfer all the engine power. You can get all the performance you need out of the standard clutches.
