For anyone interest on the adjustable pivot ball retainers, we will be making our own hubs with the treads already on them.

The retainers and hubs will be included in one package. Each package will contain 4 hubs and 8 retainers, the price will be $20 for the complete set.

Hubs and retainers will be available to be bought separately; prices will be announced at a later time.

As for the upper deck if anyone is interested, they are going to be $30 each.

Thank you for your time.

Instead of the inserts that hold the pivot balls in place, and are not adjustable for wear, our hubs will have a plastic nut that would tread into the hole where the pivot ball goes. This way it can be adjusted for wear. So instead of replacing the retainers you just screw it in a little more to take out the play. hope it makes sence.

All pivot ball cars have this system, its not something that we invented, we just want to add to the car to make even better than it alredy is.

Thanks for your interest,

The thing is that even the delrin ones will wear. Also the pivot ball wears, and the hub itself wears. With our product you will never have to replace any of those parts because of wear, you just screw it on a little more and the play is gone. The parts will all be made of fiber filled plastic for wear and strenght.

Thank you,

I should mention that the hubs will be a carbon copy of the stck hubs, so the will not change the supension ot steering.

Thank you,

I like the AE style steering Knukle. It's a give point. I would rather break that, $2.50 for 8 then the whole steering Knuckle. They are quick to install. the other style are some wht a pain to install

Did I do something wrong?

Thanks.
Move it one tooth clockwise, then shorten up your steering link to re-center the steering rack. If your steering link won't go any shorter, and your rack still isn't completely centered, use the centering feature on your radio to get things even. You should be able to get full lock, left & right. You'll have to use your EPA from there to make sure everythings squared up and not overshooting your stopping points.

Default NTC3 Clutch

Hi:

I have had my NTC3 for only a couple of weeks. I notice that when accelerating from stop the engine tends to hessitate. I am assuming that it is the stock clutch not engaging correctly. This has probably been widely discussed in the forum I think but I am still on page 53.

A lot of people recommend the centax, some the three shoe clutch with lightened shoes and stronger springs. Up to post 53 nobody mentioned the MIP clutch. I have one in my RC10GT and works good. Anybody tried it on the NTC3? What do you think?

Thanks

Jose
