After 4 hrs endurance race , here is what I found on the NTC3

Clutch setting ( finally, got close to what I want!)
3 shoe, cut on the edge, with heavier spring.

The Oneway will hold but need to maintain with oneway oil after racing.

Alumi drive shaft, amazing, it will hold as well!

The mod on pressure line on the tank's lid help a lot on setting the low end needle. did not gain on run time like some guys found. 9 mins per tank, sheeeeet, how lean u guys are running.

watch out for the 2 speed. check the screws that hold the spur. They do come lose sometime!

Rest I think have been said like the weak front bumper.

Try the V1 RR rear floating mount, it works on this car if you use Lola style body. More for looks, it did not help my lap time

Yes you can and it helps alot. It was easy for me to make the modification.

All you have to do is epoxy or J B weld a pressure fitting into the pipe

Inferno,

If you don't want to mod the pipe, you can use Losi fuel tubing. It has a larger gauge that fits more snug in the pipe.

I get about 7 mins. to a tank with the new serpent tank, to get 9 mins. the car would have to be very lean or just cruisin around the track. The new serpent tank is I think a better fix because when the car is running you don't have the washing machine effect and it holds tuning even better than the lid mod. I like your mod on the stock tank though Proundwiinner! I just did my mod like Dennis talked about early.

I don't believe it comes as an RTR. Check on Associated's website to verify.

Ok guys,

Set your NTC3 down on the table. Look at the left and right steering knuckles near where the steeing linkeage connects. Look to see if the left knuckle is lower then the right. I have the left on the left side and the right on the right side, however, there is a 4mm difference. Can someone explain?

Also, I used a lid off the HPI tank and it worked like a charm.

I see Yokomo is now making a new front one-way for the NTC3.
Has anyone seen it yet? Does it differ from the AE one, as some people are having troubles with AE's one-way?

Please post your findings or close up pictures here.

After reading the steering knuckle problem, I checked my car and they are at the same height frt. and rear.
