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


What shaft is the motor,threaded or SG shaft..(the book has differnt insructions for each one)..if its a std length threaded shaft,did you remember to cut theh crank?..

I put the stock shoes back in,but if it doesn't rain tonite,and we race,I'm going to try the alloy shoes with ethe spacer..(actually a Kyosho 3mm washer)...

thanks J.

I was using Wildcat Elimanintor(NOT THE PLUS,which is 18%oil)..

The elim. has a 14% oil content..and is teh only car fuel Wildcat makes with performance addititives for car engines..

HPI's fuel(mixed by Wildcat) is the same thing...

Trinitys Monster HP(which I use now) is 12% oil content..

trintys Platinum is 8% oil content..

all these fuels have the same basic formulas....(additive wise)..

I like teh little extra performance from the 12% oil content..

but for playing with some of my stock motored cars(esp. the Nitro Blizzard,where teh engine gets HOT)..I run the Elimimanator)..

In that vicinity.

The sizes are .05", 1/16", 5/64" (or 2mm), and 3/32".

The socket sizes are 11/32", 1/4" and 3/16".

I've been using this fuel also and really like how consistent it is from bottle to bottle. Plenty of power, engine runs cool and seems to last forever. Plus it's a little less expensive than the other fuels.

Default Motor Choice

I have recently purchased a NTC3 that came with a Picco .15 motor. I need to get a .12 to race locally. I am after a reliable, competitive engine. I race for fun rather than on a competitive basis.

What engines would you guys recommend please? I was thinking about a OS TR12 as I have the CV-R in my gas truck.

Thanks is advance

A OS 12 TR is a very reliable easy to tune engine that is competitive.

If you dont mind buying a tr with a rotary carb and a short shaft rather than a pilot shaft you can get the tr for $90 on tower this version of the engine is being discontinued so tower's trying to get rid of them. Im thinking of picking one up for my gt since my cv-r's almost dead and you cant beat the price its cheaper than a cv-r!

The difference is that the spring rate of the blade bar is adjustable.
