I run for crazy nut racing and i have the alu clutch shoes. They are very nice and do grab very hard but they do wear. I use a light sandpaper after each race day to clean the bell and shoes up.

I would be VERY interested in the non-strip diff cases. I think thats a great idea, and I am glad someone finally did it! Are they available without going through ebay? I am looking to buy 4 total diff cases (for my TC3 and NTC3). Please email me, [email protected]

Thanks!

loosenut- If you can find one, pick up an RD Logics 200m body. I used to run the protoform 2.0, however the RD one I have found to like better in almost all reguards. The car is just planted and still has very good steering. Also the headlights it includes are sweet. Also I have run both the RD Logics NTC3 chassis, and been thrilled with both. The new milled out one in 7075 grade Alum is awsome. I would suggest it over the 3R one.

Also dont use RPM ballcups, since alot of the time they bind for some reason. The AE big ones that come with their offroad cars are the hookup. They are pretty much as strong as the RPM's (if you ever break one its a good thing you did because something else would have gone instead), and they dont bind at all.

Also get the RPM front bumper if you dont have it already. as well as the new style fuel tank (since it does make a difference) if u dont already.

Happy Racin' !

Looks like everybody is jumping the bandwagon and going over to the R40. This thread has slowed down a lot.

I finally decided to do the following hopups to my ntc3,

RPm tie rod ends/balls and new tie rods
3racing chasis (nice!!)
The fix (f/r)
Blade front anti roll system
Crazy nut clutch shoe
New bumper
D. Stratus 2.1
Rdlogci 1-piece none turbo pipe

The RD Logics pipe I love, only thing is that sometimes you may get a little leakage from the exhaust gagsket (depending on the engine manufacturer-MT-12's seem to suffer from this a bit). If you get your chassis dialed-in right you won't need swaybars. My car handles better without them. Get the RPM bumper. Stratus 2.1 body is quite neutral-handling as far as the "grocery getter" sedan bodies go. I'm running the $40 GH chassis, a bargain for the money. Don't forget to check the clearance in your diffs or you'll be eating ring and pinion gears.

I totally agree I can't do the HPI thing anymore. I have spent way to much money in the past on my HPI cars.

Default clutch

My ntc3 has a novarossi s5 engine and I'm using a 3pjs radio.
I have problems controlling the speed especially when cornering(in and out). With a 5port engine the car is really fast on straight and has a lot of torque when cornering. But I have a hard time maintaining a speed in between medium and high speed. When I enter into a corner, I must slow down. When I try to put a little more speed by pulling the throttle slightly the car gains speed at once that I will already loose control of the car. In short, I have a hard time putting my car into a medium high speed that will take smooth and fast cornering. Is it the engaging of the clutch? I heard of centax clutch, is this the answer to my question?

I'd like to ask other NTC3 users. What holes do you guys strip out in the diff cases? I personally have never stripped out a single bottom screw. Which holes should be re-inforced? Is $15 a case, a good deal? Please, voice your opinions.
Thanks in advance!
