Hmm? Everyone jumping off the NTC3 boat? What's the problem? Like I said from the begining the NTC3 is a very good car for short and medium tracks, due to the gearing and the shaft. Its also a very fast qualifier on all tracks, but its not the best car out there like some people here says.
Its like everything else new, everyone must have it!! I guess if the Ofna shaft car goes and wins a race or 2 everyone will want on that bandwagon.
It will be interesting to see how many so called die hard Ae owners here that swear by the car will stay with the car.

Speedy-OB4: The diff cases alone are alittle over an oz. of extra weight. I would'nt use anything else do to it being not stong enough, one good hit and I'd say its bye bye to those shocktowers. Remember, alum does'nt give it just bends! If you want a good chassis go with the GH chassis, or maybe try the new RD 7075 chasiss, it close to a direct copy of the GH. for the price and quality you can't go wrong, I have used the GH since its release, it's much better than the flemsy, flexy Ae chassis.

Anyone that says that any car is "The Best" is fooling themselves. Some cars work for some people, and some don't, it's that simple. The fact is that the NTC3 has worked for quite a few, just as I'm sure the Mugen will. But, you can't please all the people all the time, right? I will stick with AE because in the right hands, everything they make can be a winner. There's really no need to defend them, their track record speaks for itself.

Do you guys mount your servos with the little rubber isolators? I just roasted one of mine that was mounted solid.

A lot of the boat jumpers dumped the car because of the old gears when using a one way or solid axle. The tank problems were solvable (if you even had them) with common sense. The car was strong enough for most people, and can be made stronger. Track type does come into play, if I raced on low traction surfaces(which I normally don't) I think the engine torque would be an issue. All the teething is done now, and I'm really looking forward to this year, especially because there won't be nearly as many NTC3s to deal with.

I was thinking about the comment about people going to MTX3s turning better lap times and all I could think about was how easy it is to overshoot with this car because it doesn't bleed off speed like the belts do, One of my driving flaws and it is really tough for me not to do is overdriving the car and not letting off soon enough; that corner entry speed is a big problem

for the throttle I do, since you have to pretty much go to the stop, if it's off a little you'll strain the servo.

You got it OB4, overdriving the car, that's been our problem from the begining.
But... Like Harry says, man when you hit it right , theres nothing that comes off the corner like it can!!
