I like the Jaco Nitro Shoes to run on my NTC3... they have strong rims and are priced pretty well, thats if you order them from overseas.

First Loser, where do you order your tires from?

Crashed_1, how is your car now? Hey, if your pipe is smashed, you should get an RD Logics one piece pipe. It kicks A$$.

Hey,
My friend told me about these forums so I figured Id come here, if you go to the rc zone forums you know me as...NitroBoy24 lol. Anyways Im gettin a RTR NTC3 with a 2-speed tranny, FT Blue body Clips (lol), 2 glow plugs, a Duratrax Temp Gun, and some other misc stuff.

I just wanted to know if there are many aftermarket parts or some what some of the NTC3's flaws (if it has them) are so I can get them and not worry about it. I am mainly going to be bashing, but will do some racing on the side.

Crashed_1
Youve got a nice NTC3

Only one flaw with the NTC3 and tons of aftermarket parts. The only thing that has broken on my car is one (there are 8 in total) pivot ball cap. The flaw is this, if you were to hit something, or lets say if something like the wall or boards jump onto the track in front of you, you might "shock" the electrics. Dunno what it is, but it happened twice. The Receiver and Servos just go blank and your car continues what it was doing at that time, either circling or full speed in one direction. I've seen this mentioned before on a thread

I've upgraded to an Aluminum Shaft, thats it.
Play around with the gears, be carefull with the mesh. Buy the complete Tuning guide for the NTC3 from rc10.com

I run Jaco Nitro Shoes (35-40 shore).

Volla!

Only ONE???!!!...

Here's what i did to make sure it runs and behaves like a true racer.


1.Got a titanium chassis to reduce weight.
2.Changed all screws to titanium.
3.Changed rear bulkhead to alu to reduce flex under breaking.
4.Changed pivotballs to titanium to reduce weight on suspension area.
5.Changed turnbuckles to titanium for strength and weight reduction.
6.Added front/rear sway bars.
7.Changed to a lightened one way bearing.
8.Got the RPM bumper. It's a MUST.
9.Changed to a RDLogics Turbo Pipe.
10.Last but not least, RB X12 Rody Roem engine with KFactory Centax clutch.(but I'm back to using the 3 shoe stock)

Things I've not done...

1.The FIX screws.
2.Unobtanium Shock Shafts.
3.Graphite Parts.

That said, you needn't get all those to make your NTC3 fast, just PRACTICE and a stock NTC3 can take anycar anytime.



p:s : Get the RPM bumper...I know I said it before, but I'm gonna say it again.

Yo crashed_1

I've had a 1/5 scale truck land and stand on my car, the marshalls "remedied" the situation by obviously removing the thing, my car was still idling, and I spead away winning the race. Why was I racing a 1/5 truck, well all the other 1/10 nitro drivers were to scared to race against myself and another dude with a HPI R40

My point, this car has seen some serious race-track "accidents" and I only replaced a broken pivot cap. I live in South Africa, we pay roughly 7 times more than you guys pay around the world for our RC stuff. Replacing screws with stock instead of Alum or Titanium is far cheaper, even if I have to do it a few times.

That RB engine costs too much anyway. Tell me this though, I need some advice.

I've removed the crab restrictor from my AE.12 engine. What do I need to set the High/low screws to to compensate

Thanks
Vrrrmmm
