Onroad dude, the rear end is a complete different setup, no more popped toe links ending your race. All the other stuff is cool but the rear end is what I want.

Hey, I'm waiting on my ntc3 factory kit to come in. With the toe in fully adjustable in the rear, can someone tell me how you set the toe in on the car to be equal on both sides? Do you have to have some sort of a tool for that or does the kit have a way of setting it so that it's precise?

Thanks!

Setup Gauges, Hudy - Integy etc or you can lay the AE camber gauge flat on the board.

Default "The Fix"

I've read about these on here before and tried doing a search but couldn't refine it enough, but where are these available from?

Default Problems with tranny

I've got a starnge problem. Over the weekend I rebuilt both my front and rear diffs. Last night I went to run the car to make sure everything was ok. I noticed that when the car picks up speed the shaft and diffs no longer turn. the pinion and spur gears still turn, bu nothing else and the car doesnt move. when i let off the throttle or put on the brake i sometimes here a click and then everything starts running normally again. then as i pick up speed it happens again. could it be a bearing in the 2 speed or something wrong with the diffs. When this happens, the shaft doesnt even move.

maybe you should try testing whether the shaft moves when you turn the first gear, if not, take it out and nitro blast the bearing and relube it then try to spin it again.

A bit contradictory message you put up there. U say the car picks up - does that mean the car is running? If it is running how can you tell if the shaft stop moving? If you are holding the car and reving it, and the shaft don't move and your pinions are moving then it means your front and rear diff are not screwed in properly. The manual set up is front diff 1/4 turn and rear 1/2 turn. If your car moves very slowly at high rev then it confirms that your diffs are not screwed in properly. If the standard set up don't work that means your spring is out of whack so you need new springs

The kit comes with a square gauge that measures 1 to 3 degree camber. But if you hold the car on the front bumper up with the rear sitting on the table you can actually set you toe in from there. Hence you don't need to spend money on a set-up board
