do you have happen to have a link to the RPM ball cups for the front and rear turnbuckles? the ones in the front of my ntc3 keep popping off. sometimes i swear they pop off just by looking at them.

Be careful with the rear, the RPM cups that I put on my rear bind the suspension up. You may need to polish the balls a little to get the resistance out. Also the cups on the servo turnbuckle should be AE cups because the cups may bind on the servo and on the fuel tank.

Lythion - if your rear cups are binding - it's because you got the normal sized ones. The ones for the back are larger than normal. Get the specific ones for the rear buckles of the NTC3. They don't bind.

Also - if you shave the RPM cups a bit they will work quite well for the steering.

(look back a bit in this thread for that discussion - do a search for RPM and ballcups)

Default thanx fastharry

thanks for the help on the kyosho collars
i'm gonna look for em at my lhs, by the way
did you decide to get an os tr turbo 12 or
not just wondering, i too recently got the
regular non turbo 12 tr for my ntc3s
my only problem is the clutch bell not covering the
clutch shoes completely , i think you mentioned this too a while
back but you were running alloy clutch shoes i am using the stock
ones for now , didyou try putting a spacer behind the the
clutch shoes to remedy this ? and if so did it work and is your
engagement still consistent.
thanks have a good day
sb

Right, me too. I shaved a little off the back and they cleared just fine.
