I used the Losi return spring and mounted the tab onto the front left corner of the radio box with the hole sticking out to the left side and the spring runs right down the center to the 9:00 position of the throttle arm of the servo.Works great and looks pro.

I can find a place, but I can't find a place so it looks good...

Thanks
It may not look good, but it works great (a little overkill)!
Here is a close up shot ... it is a spring I found lying around.

Can't wait for this clutch.. The release date should be 15 May in Japan right with the Japan hobby show.

Tighten both sides all the way down. Then turn them out 2 1/2 turns. Drive the car in a wide open area so you can pick up enough speed. Keep adjusting both sides "EQUALY" by 1/2 half turn till you get it to shift where you want...

NTC3 shifts very smoothly.. so it's not noticable unless you are familiar with the power band of your motor.

If your not... tighten it all the way down and lock it into 1st. This way you will know what it feels like when your car positively isn't shifting.

I had this issue with the 2 speed on Saturday.
It was the first time I dorve this brand new car.
It wouldn't shift into 2ND gear at all. I thought it was because the car was new and tight. I drove it like that for about 2 tanks and then started turn out the 2speed 1/2 turn at a time ...
I still wouldn't shift after turning out about 2 complete turns!

I ended up tightening them right down, ran it like that for a short bit, then started turninmg them out 1/2 trun at a time.

After about 3 turns (1/2 turns) it kicked in ....
and when I say kicked in I mean it, the car just launches!!
You cannot hear it shift (except for a small RPM drop), but you can definetly see the shift change.

Then I just made small adjustments to suit my track and it works flawlessly now.

My problem now is the car is just so free rolling, I have to add a little drag brake... I am overshooting corners!

I have a question - I am almost finished putting my NTC3 together, just have the motor and the assorted little things. . .

I have a Mugen MT-12 and the shaft seems too long. . . when I assembled my old GT-4, I didn't have this problem with the OS I had in it. . .

Is it "normal" to have to cut down the shaft? It seems so, to me. . .but I am thinking that perhaps they made it just a bit long. . .

I assembled it as I saw it for the rear-exhaust standard shaft directions in the book. Perhaps I overlooked something?

Thanks for the help!

FYI roar rules state the carb must have a spring on it..... not the linkage... ie if the linkage breaks it goes to neutral... so it should go from the ball stud on the carburetor

No, one of three things happens

1. I try to put the flywheel, then the extension on - it doesn't tighten down on the flywheel.

2. I assemble it with the piece that comes with the motor, then the flywheel, then the extension - everything goes together nicely but when I put it in the car the motor mounts don't line up with the holes in the chassis.

3. when I try to use the other mount (not the extension) it won't thread on since the shaft is smaller than it is. . .

am I not seeing something?

Put it back in the box and take it back to your LHS. Tell him you want a SG or Pilot shaft

That should fix things the easy way.

If it's a normal crank and not a SG or "Short" crank... Your gonna have to trim it. The kit only supports the above two.

And... you have to use the associated collet. The one that comes with the motor is the wrong angle. That is why the gears won't line up when you use it.

Thank you.

I didn't purchase it at a local place - I got it online so I'm gonna have to trim it.

Most trouble I've seen people have with the two-speed is they are adjusting the wrong 2 screws in the clutch housing.
