Default Head shot

Yet another view of its behind, this time a head shot. If you check the upper link, inner pivot point - that is attached with an M3 screw (yes, you heard me right) but there was of course an normal steel M3 nyloc nut for it. I did my own M3 nut out of an AE 4-40 aluminium locknut (#6937). Just run a M3 tap through the aluminium part of it, but no the nyloc part - hey, an american M3 FT nut... Bling, bling.

Default Radioplate

Thought I would leave that alone ? Wrong...! First of all its made in the stiff grey carbon reinforced composite plastic. Personally I like it a lot, I have no clue in why people would like to have it in the normal milled carbon plates... no clue. I like, I like.

Lowering of the battery pack
The normal 5-cell flat battery pack can sit about 2 mm lower. So I made some spacers out of parts of the camber tool that is included in all NTC3 kits (I've never used it anyway). With a big drum-sander in my Moto-Tool I shaped them so they would fit the cells good. See the pix, before (right) and after (to the left). The thickness at their thinnest point is about 2 mm.

Default S9550 as throttle / brake servo

The throttle servo I will use is the low-profile digital Futaba S9550. That can be lower just a little by grinding down the servo posts on top of the plate. If you choose to use it also, dont remove all material flush with the plate leave about 1 mm, otherwise one of the radiobox 2-56 screws will interfere with the servo rubber. I recon the car will be too light with all of the graphite stuff on it, so I plan to mount the extra needed lead weights under the S9550 throttle servo.

Default S9350 / S9451 as steering servo

I know, a Futaba digital S9350 would be concidered even by Pro's to be a tad over-kill for an FT. Thats more like a perfect 1/8 off -road servo. But again, I recon the car will be underweight so why not? It has an aluminium waist-line and all. A Futaba digital S9451 would be a more sane choice... Of course I recomend you to use the optional FT aluminium steering mounts (#1779). Use some blue loctite on the screws.

Straight from the left. BTW, I used some aluminium 2-56 button head screws to attach the radio box to the plate from www.fastener-express.com - just for a bling, bling factor. Done wrenching for now...

Skoob: what is it U wanna do?

If you're buying any of the newest Version 2 NTC3 cars, the new wider one is included. See the attached picture. This is the partnumber for that one.

AE #2223 - Front bumper wide (replaces booth the AE #2232 and #2226) - 8 USD

The optional RPM bumper is for the "old" car. It replaces the original AE "kydex" flat bumper that is #2232. The original one (2232) brakes very easy and I doubt it does any good at all, except braking... All of those are to be used with the 3 original rubbers and the foam bumper.

So if you wanna buy an optionalpart - go for the RPM one.

If U dont think it does any good at all (like me), make an thin 1/4 foam spacer (as I showed earlier) and remove it completely.

Or if U want to buy the new AE wide bumper buy the AE #2223. All of them uses the original foambumper also... Hope it helped.
