lol, uhmm well as I recall .. the pins on my Mugen CVD's weren't so tight you had to smash them in with a hammer :P They are a precise fit, but you can pop them out with your fingers. What do you think the black hexes with the slot cut in them are for, or aluminum wheel hexes? dduuurrrrhhh go away Trinity boy haha

Hey, another quick question ... how do you guys get your axle pins out? The black pins are friggen impossible to get out of the hole. Its a paint to even get them centered on the axle, have to sit there with some needle nose pliers for a good 5 minutes strugglign to find just enough pressure to pop the thing halfway through the axle. Tried getting the thing out to check the status of the inside bearing; pina in the butt .. have yet to pop the thing out!
The stratus 2.0 is a 190mm body, it wont fit the ntc3. The stratus 2.1 is the same body but 200mm.

you can fit 190mm on the ntc3, you just have to cut the wheel wells of quite a bit

you can't order an RTR with a 2-speed. You have to order both separately

The 2.0 is the new style and it's 190mm. The 2.1 is the new body but 200mm. The old Stratus doesn't have a number (or implicitly 1.0).

You can adjust the width of the NTC3 so it will fit a 190mm body. Screw the bottom pivot ball all the way in on each knuckle. Then adjust the camber of each wheel using the top pivot ball. That will set the width to 192mm, which is basically 190mm. I prefer running my nitro at 190mm, since that is what I run my electric cars at. Also, I really like the Losi Alpha body, which is only offered as a 190mm body. I nearly never race my nitro with the width set to 200mm.

Ahhh, the 190mm will fit the 200mm cars no problem. Well atleast this protoform. I actually like the look better. The wheels don't seem so far inside the body. I did however have to cut a tiny bit more out for the wheels, but not much. Theres enough travel that the wheel doesnt rub ... seems good to me.

Until I find the body wearing down the tires :P) haha, seems fine though.

Default How are you guys keeping your ntc3 running for more than 5 minutes?

I switched to the ntc3 from an mtx-2 and never had a car with so many problems. Blown 1st gear bearings, twisted cvd's, melted diff gears, screws coming loose everywhere. This is all from not touching a single board but just a powerful smeltz engine. It's the fastest car I've run to date but how will it last a longer main. The gears heat up and melt, the one-way blows when you put a motor with more hp, and the cvd's twist when running a spool not even hitting a single thing.

How are guys running this car in long mains? Seems like the car can't take the horsepower.

Hmm, RC Pilot, you sound like me a year or so ago! The brgs. from Ae really suck, I have more outer wheel brg. trouble than any other brgs. Buy real good quality brgs, change to MIP shiny cvds, and the newer, white Ae diff gears. Do maintance and relube on the diffs every 10 to 15 runs on them I also use Smeltz and Richey power and the xtra HP does work the car really hard. We run 10 to 20 min. mains every week with the car and have very little trouble. Don't listen to all you hear on here about people never having any problems with the car. They either bench race it or take it out on a parking lot and play once and awhile.
The car does have some issues but it's one of the best cars on the market today, speed wise! It's a bitch and I know you have been here for sometime but read through all the post, especially mine if you want to fix the car! And if you like the car and decide to stay with it, buy the new BMI chassis, its expensive but the benefits is well worth it!

It's nice to seem some honest people on this board, instead of the usual "there is nothing wrong with this car, you just can't drive excuse." lol
