its called torque steer its the only problem with Shaft Driven carz thats why your car pulls to one side. just by adding a lil more weight on the Right side should help. onroadmaniak the reason is the shaft is rotating to the left or counter clockwise so thats why your car drift up left to find the right spot to put a lil more weight to the right side. Just got back from work and im falling asleep hahaa

Default 2 Speed Tranny

I heard MIP has made a 2 speed, and right now the opinion I got was to stay away from the Kawahara Centax clutch because of some people not being satisfied with the engineering and setupability...hehe new word.

MIP supposedly made one with 1 spring that goes all the way around the clutch shoes but I'm unable to find any info on it...retail sales or otherwise.

Any ideas or links you have avail?

Thanks.

Sorry king but torque steer is not the reason. It sounds to me alot like the car has some tweak in it. I had an MTX2 before and when that car shifted from 1st to 2nd it would side step about 10 inches. Would that be considered torque steer? No it was just a tweak problem. Work on the tweak on the NTC3 and you'll get it figured out. Also check to make sure that your steering servo saver is tight. Did you replace the stock sprink in the servo saver? If not the power going to the wheels could be overpowering the spring in the servo saver and causing it to pull to the side. Just something to check out. Hope you like the car.

Not a 2-speed, but a clutch kit with the circular shoes. I have one and it works great.

The servo saver is built into the swing rack. There is a spring in the swing rack that is not quite stiff enough out of the box. Find a slipper clutch sping from an RC10GT and put it in the swing rack in place of the one that came in the kit. This will make the steering more reponsive. This is an important issue with the car! A must do fix.

sorry Onroadmaniak - there IS a servo saver on the NTC3.

It is built into the swing rack. Did you purchase the RTR? If so, then you didn't build this piece and may not know it's there. If you did, then you should remember the funky little cam-shaped linkage that connects the servo to the actual swing rack - and the spring that is in there - THATs the servo saver. It works pretty well and is a decently simple design.

However, the spring in it (part no. 3929) is stupid weak and just doesn't hold up. Replace it with part no. 6587 - the spring from the slipper clutch on the RC10GT. You still get servo saving action but much more positive action.
