one slight knock and the car will come back with more toe out then i ever need wahaha. sometime even came back with 10degree each side!!! i tried superglue didnt work on the cups thread. i tried new cups (black) didnt work...


any other suggestions? on the steering sups?
Hi Fuse,

that sound weird. Is your servo saver very hard? Sound as if you drive right into a gigantic wedge that spread your front wheel apart.



but seriously, it shouldn't happen..

Well, if it is an improved version, then it will sell, if it is just an exact copy version, then it is a dead cat.

Hey guys,

I am thinking about getting into nitro a bit for the summer, probably with a TC3.

I don't know too much about the various engines and stuff out there, nor what all I'd need for the car to get it up and running. I'd need to get a ROAR-legal engine/pipe, and I'd prefer to run Futaba servos. I already have the other radio gear necessary.

Any recommendations on an engine/pipe for the car? What else would I need to get it going competitively?

Mugen MT-12 is a very strong engine, so are the Sirio and OS-TR motors, i have run all with good results, as far as pipes...stick with the associated, i really couldn't get any results worth spending extra money for a aftermarket pipe.

Nice NTC3 haha then LD3 is a beutiful hoped up NTC3. But damn could it be all show no Go hahah. the only way for the Ofna team to sell is to have a fully hop up car to do the things the the ntc3 does box stock. Better quality better everything Ae
