Simon, your mt12 is fast enough. Did you get rid of the other engine? Either will be fine. Trust me, driving time is what will make you faster

I've been using the tube and air filter deal for a year or so. I've tried it long, short ,med. It all helps anytime you get it away from the hottest air, it's gotta be better. The longer you make it, the louder you can hear it pull air, especially with the Richey's and the Smeltz. Some use it beside the right rear tire, but it gets alot of foam rubber build up, I like it towards the rx box, sorta gives it a ram air effect. I now use one on a 45 angle and a short piece of pipe just long enough to clear the head, and get the clean air thats in the top of the car. They are easy to make , just use brass tubing from the LHS 5/8 dia., or 1/2. I use traxxas exhaust pipe rubber, don't remember the part#, it has a 45 angled end and is about a 4" straight end, cut it to the length you want.

Does the Kawahara centax clutch have optional gears for the NTC3? I know it doesn't use the factory gears because it comes with the 26T one...Does anybody know if the K-Factory clutch use the stock gears??

BB..you think a std motor savers airfilter that was bent over 45 degrees to the centerline of the car would be a help?...(I guess about 60% of the airfilter would be in clean air..)

Yes, it would help some Harry I think. Like I said , any cooler air will help. It seemed to help cool the crankcase, maybe alittle. That's where I had my trouble earlier, (crankshaft overheating).
Anybody who had trouble, when the car just shut off or flameout, not starting back up and being able to watch the fuel in the line go to the carb and then just shoot back to the tank. This is do from the crankshaft being overheated.

Thanks bud...I'm talking to motor savers..I'll be sure to relay your thought....

btw,got my R40 running..its pretty sweet...

I'm not sure I'm faster with it though..won't know that till I get timed...but it is a real stable car...and has more steering than the tc3..its not dependent on the right line to turn.,,

Nope. Sold the NTC3 about a month ago.

No, I haven't tried it on mine but it does look like it would help.

Not too sure about the length though(too long). Imagine sucking through a straw really hard and notice how the straw collapses. I think half the length would be better.

yep,I agree..ot it also not deal with heat..I think angled,at least into the air path,would be best.....

Have fun racing...

You may have already said this somewhere, but what'd you buy in place of the NTC3? MTX3(guessing because of your sig...)?
