is there a AE solid diff? what part should i replace and buy?

Pitshop has a solid axle in stock... if you get the axle, just put in a bevel gear and replace the stock diff...

I really wouldn't recommend the solid axle... puts too much strain on your drive train, i would just rather have a really tight front diff as a good compromise.

The NTC3 diff with the friction ring can't be tighten down to lock it , like a solid, no matter how tight it is, it will still slip some. If you feel the need to have a locker, use the electric TC3 diff in the front it does'nt use the friction ring. AE will tell you it won't hold up but this is just BS, we used the electric diff in the NTC3 for a long time with no failures.

Very True. I tried tightening the diff but it just works loose. If you have not tried a locked diff i strongly suggest you do. Ignore what some people say about the drivetrain not being able to take it. I wonder whether these people have even tried it. As i said i have tried locked front and rear as well as 1 ways and i have never had a single problem. I'm not trying to start an argument it's just that people say that the NTC3 cant do this can't do that as it isn't strong enough, it's no wonder this car has a bad name as far as strength. Give it a go if it doesn't work it's not the end of the world

If I put in a solid axle in the rear, what will that do for me?
I have a Front one-way also.

Just to clear it up, you are using the guts from the ETC3 and the outdrives from the NTC3 right? The outdrives from the E aren't long enough to use in the Nitro I don't think.

Maybe I'm missing something here, but what is the advantage of a solid front axle on a 4WD TC? I usually set up my NTC3 like a 1/8th scale on large tracks (solid rear, one-way front).

GQ foams for nitro touring are the cheapest I've seen. The new ones for this year are on an orange mesh wheel , but cheap if you're burning up a set in weekend.
