I hope someone can help

Default RD Logics NTC3 chassis

I just got the 6061 T6 NTC3 chassis when I purchased the die cast aluminum kit. Has anyone used this chassis? How close to the factory chassis is the T6 chasis? Thanks

It's going good. Sorry to hear about the bad plug. What kind of fuel are you using again? I was thinking of trying some Byrons. I'm using Wildcat now but I've heard alot of good things about Byrons. Especially from Richey. I've used Blue Thunder, O'Donnell and now the Wildcat/Trinity Platinum race fuel. So far I've liked the Wildcat the best. That envelope is in the mailbox for you. Racing is starting to look very good. I am in the process of accuiring some land for an awesome outdoor offroad track. It is city land that had been used by BMX racers and is no longer being used so we can take it over now. Should be an exciting summer for us here. On road will start for me in about a month. It actually starts in a week and a half but I'm getting married in two weeks. So I'll be kinda busy for the next couple weeks after that. Take it easy and I'll talk to you soon.

How much is the Wild cat? I've used Traxxas Top Fuel and some other fuel from my friend...

Got my "non-turbo" RD Logics pipe today, looks good. I had a few minor things to do to get it right. I had to grind off a little welding slag on the outside of the inner part of the bend on the pipe itself, mostly just for a cleaner look. Also had to do a little clean-up inside the manifold itself where it attaches to the engine, the ring was not matched up with the tube causing a noticeable overlap. Some very fine Dremel work took care of that. Last but not least, the manifold itself is slightly longer (a bigger "U") than the factory manifold, causing the manifold to hit on the lip around the gas tanks fuel line. Hopefully this won't cause a problem. I know to many it may seem like I'm complaining, but I'm not, I really am satisfied with the pipe. I hope it works as well as it looks.
