Ok guys, one tube comments created two pages of conversation..

what should we start next


I raced the NTC3 last week at EGR and the fuel tank does NOT affect the performance but what you get is a

RUNNING WASHING MACHINE FOR FREE FROM AE.

And when you re-fill the tank when is still have some fuel left on the tank, make sure you re -fill it FAST . ( good training for your mechanisc

all else you have a lot of cleaning to do afterwards...

The car is great, other than the unusual fuel tank. I did TQ in the morning but of course Mr. Chui come to the rescue to make sure TC3 wouldn't TQ at the first race

I run Foam only ;
Front - 60w oil
45 elligi at 60mm( 26mm width)
everything else standard
Rear - 40w oil
Copper or Red spring( felt similar on either spring)
45 elligi at 61mm ( 26mm width)

I set the camber until the tire wear even which is around 2 to 2.5 degree)

I would buy harder clutch spring and one-way.

And watch out for the rear ball diff. I had to rebuild my after 1 litre of fuel as all the grease was gone but after the second rebuild, I have no problem now. May be I had it too tight in the beginning. not sure

I was amazed that the car was strong. I tested many time on the airport track ( on the wallssssss and rear end of Vone R) but I did break the front bumper and no spare parts in HK


good luck

I am using the dynamite starter box and it works fine. I would suggest using it, but any starter box would work as long as the bump start wheel can be turned horizontal or vertical...
