the tc3 is pretty well dialed in also,and can be used with ruuber tires AND foams...plus,it comes with 2 ball diffs...and if you want a REAL newbie experiance,trying driving a car with a std one way and foams on the street(the mtx 3)...not easy to do....


the tc3 is also easire to set up..all teh tools come with it....

but my biggest worry is that I might opt for the NTC3 and have some trouble getting it dialed in cause im so new to the hobby, where as the MTX-3 sounds like its pretty dialed in box stock setup.
The NTC3 is not that hard to dial in, box setup has you dialed in also.

Did you travel back in time? Those pics look like they were taken in the 20's.

Please tell me if this gearing is correct for the maximum low end and maximum high end. 20/27 with 54/48

Use 21/27 with the 54/48, both 6 tooth splits, if your looking for the max gearing. I have had very good results with 20/26-54/48 on our large track.

Now that I own both cars...the NTC3 and MTX3 - although I'm presently still building the MTX3 - I'd had to agree with you on the "hop-up" issue and the breaking dog bones.

Once I started building and reading all of the MTX3 forum and saw the amount of "recommended" hop-ups I'm starting to get that RS4-3 feeling again, you know, when I hop-up the car to death, enough to pay for another car. So I'm going to try and fight the hop-up urge and run the MTX3 box stock with maybe a front universal switch and engine brace swap only.

For now the NTC3 stays with me with only "the fix" , Dual Chamber pipe, RPM bumper, new fuel tank, and swing rack bearings.

I would have to comment the MTX3 is one solid piece so far...I've only built the drive train.

Later,
Puma

The NTC3 is definetly free wheeling. I was pitting next to one of my Mugen buddies, and while we where warming the cars up on our boxs you could clearly see the differance between a shaft drive & a belt drive. We would bump the throttles on the cars and while mine would continue to spin off power, the only thing spinning on his car where the front wheels (one-way). The rest of his drivetrain would stop rotating completely as soon as he let off the throttle. I just need to get back into the swing of things. I ran my electric TC3 indoors off & on all winter and am out of practice with my nitro ride. I'm off to a much better start than last year though, as I said, the RD trany cases & The Fix are keepers. I'm also in need of a good body. Our LHS was 99% out of 200mm shells when I went in, and I had to settle for a Protoform I've never run. Needless to say I wasn't impressed. I have a freshly painted Crowd Pleezer now, had good luck with that last season. May pick up a Parma X20 also.

my favorite is the original proto stratus...

the parma x20 is supposed to be a VERY good body...

you'll get back in the swing of things.....trust me..let the car do the work....you just guide it..

From the MTX-3's that I've seen, here's what would need to be replaced:

Front Universals (Fronts at least, prefer Rears also)
Transmission Brace
Roll Bar (very fragile looking plastic)
Brake Disc (get the 1-piece)

These are the upgrades I can recall off the top of my head. Their chassis leaves something to be desired too, but I bite my tongue on that one since ours is nothing to write home about. All of the Mugens I have seen have upgraded chassis, from Mugen themselves or an aftermarket company.

And your right Fastharry, the original Stratus rules, indoors or out. It kicks the 2.0's or 2.2's ass.
