Fantom's new FR 03 line has a rear exhaust pull start now. I was pretty surprized to see it in their line up. It's the only one I've ever seen and they don't have it listed on their webpage yet.

And, for those who can't race over the winter so they spend their off-time making their cars look very pretty, it looks boring.

I used my stock chassis and haven't done a whole lot of hitting things and it's starting to tweak. Once my summer project is done (prevents me from racing) I will be upgrading.

you're baby is too heavy. all that damn aluminum is doing it no good.

nice and fat. slow acceleartion. lots of aluminum. expensive to fix.
(btw, even though the alum trans cases and shock towers may be just a tad heavier than the plastic, they don't work themselves loose as easily. . .so go easy on knocking the aluminum. There IS a purpose to it. . .one day you might read this thread and find out what it is )

Hey Simon,

what is the pipe and manifold that you are using? Many of the guys on the track over here have the problem of engine stalling. And many point to the dual chamber exhaust of AE as the culprit.

Somehow, the funny thing about all the stalled NTC3 is that, most cars stall at or around the same area on the track. This seems to plague NTC3 regardless of what engines that might be in it. ANyone has similar problem?

Default DUAL CHAMBER PIPE

Anyone else see a difference on the low end? I seem to have lost that dart feeling I once had. I only have the rdlogics top of the diff case on, different than last year. Mid range and high end seem fine. I will try adjusting pipe lenght this weekend and see if I can find a happy medium. I will get an rdlogics pipe soon too, but I over extended myself $ wise. Plus I will check out Simon's this weekend and can judge from there.

Seen it happen. Swap the tank, check the clutches, etc. Some have said that it's a burr in the pipe that blocks the stinger when turned just right(like at the same place on the track)

Well guys, somebody has gone & done it. Check out NitroTC3.net . Not much information there yet but it looks like a god start. I'm not connected with the site other than joining last night, just passing along information. I found the link at NitroRC.com
