Fastharry
I just got a Trinity Team Only Reflex.
Are you familiar with these?
I have a question re: adjusting shift
point.
Is this adjustment like the NTC3s?

People,

Last night was the first night for my NTC3 and i can't say everything went to plan.

Brain Fade at the end of the straight resulted in having to replace the front hub. Then two heats into the night after having struggled with finding a sweet spot of the engine tune, i discovered the clip that holds the o ring in the fuel tank had snapped and fallen into the tank. (Haven't seen that since my old Ts4n days from Thunder Tiger).

Then after replacing the fuel tank for the final the pressure delivery tube blew of the inlet on the tank during the race.

Things can only improve.... I hope!

I can help with the inlet problem....

get a DUBRO #241 pressure inlet..

Cut off that outside guard,and the fuel nipple....

Take a screwdriver,and GENTLY enlarge the hole in the tank..then screw in that Dubro fitting...works great...

Fast Harry: I thought that was the fix for the outlet on the tank that goes to the carby? I am having problems with the delivery inlet on the lid.

Yes, the bloody thing blew off the fuel tank lid?

Has anybody actually managed to get a Novarossi to fit using the stock mounts with the BMI Chassis?

no problem there......


I always use the stock associated line,made by Dubro,Or aerotrend fuel line...(they both have the best grip,teh Aero is better)

Cut about a 1/4 inch of fuel line,and with a needle nose pliers,Expand it and put it over the regular fuel line..

Now,put on the regular fuel line,and push the small piece over the nipple also..it will hold the other fuel line on....

I need help on handling setup. I have a push when transitioning in a s-turn. I seem to have a bit of a push and can't carry as much speed as some other car. Should I reduce the rear droop? or lighten the clutch shoes? Anyone has any pict. of how the clutch shoes are lighten?. what else should I do to help the transition?

Default push

hey spawn!
an on power push mines u have to much rear traction at that time of transition. without knowing your set-up tire shore ,camber,toe,caster,ride height and body u use its hard to say,but u can try to limit the amount of rear traction (weight transfer) to the rear while on power in turns bye using harder
rear springs ,softer in front less droop in front and even less camber in rear .more in front i would start with tie shores first .try
different shores in front hope that helps!

What fun would that be?
Sweat burning your eyes, mix that with
some 30% nitro, have 9 other drivers
on the drivers stand going at it!
Then race "pro stock" electric after
turn-marshalling the "inter stock
electric" class.

Get the Yokomo one way. It's more durable than the AE one. I had my AE one go out on me in 2 weeks. The bearing in the Yok is better than the plastic AE one.
