Also swap out the fuel tank, and drill a hole and use the second chamber of the pipe for pressure. Hold on to that NTC3 fuse, it will walk all over the belt cars.


I agree......there have been THOUSANDS of Tc3's sold...the original gas tank(Chicken hopper design) could have been a problem with tuning(same as it couyld have been on the GT for the past 10 years)....and to be honest,there were more people who NEVER had a problem with that tank on the tc3,than did...

the new top feed tank solves the EASE of tuning issue....


Maybe the pipe that comes with the rear exhaust makes it a little harder to tune,but I personally don't see a problem with teh car at all....



BTW<if the car is thermally challenged,how does putting an exhaust pipe half of an inch from the air cleaner help?....



but I'll bet there are more people who cant tune a NOVA style engine than there are problems with teh car..

Default front one way

What’s a good set-up on the rear diff when running a front one way? Should it be set full tight or allowed to slip?

Thanks for the help!

Hey all you guys looking for a better cooling head! Check this out Crazy Nut Racing these heads are awesome and the one on my car is lighter than my stock RB head. I ran it yesterday and wow does it cool alot better than the stock head. It's actually amazing.

He is also working on some diff cases for me. These would be actual machined and anodized diff cases not like the cast one's the RD Logics has. (not to put them down I'm sure they are great, just stating a difference) Send him an email and ask him about the diff cases. He's a great guy. And check out the heads, he does awesome work.

Jon

sounds more like a tuning issue to me. when it is sluggish off the line it sound like your top and bottom are out of balance... try richening the top and leaning the bottom. nova/rb 12's should idle for 25-30s before they load up and die. how much fuel have you run through the engine? these engines are so tight they need to be run for a gallon before they really rip and are easy to tune. check also for air leaks; seal the backplate and where the carb seats with high temp RTV sealant. make sure your fuel system holds pressure.

Depends. Just make sure it isn't slipping. Tighter will make the car rotate under power better. With the new HD gears out I think I'm going to try my solid axle in back. That's how a lot of the r-type belt drives come out of the box.

Aluma- K-Factory makes a nice set that uses all four holes on the diff case to mount with. Then the shock mount is made of carbon fiber. It's the best looking one I've seen so far.
