Also if any of you have any suggestions of pointers on the build feel free to give your .02
Thanks All
I have the BMI chassis (V1) and it is really good. I have since switched to a Mugen MTX-3 since alot of the people I race with have switched.

I set mine the same as version 1, 2nd place in the A first time out, at a track I had never raced before. Seemed to be fine.
2 deg rear toe in, 3 deg rear camber, 6 droop & soft springs & 25 oil, 5.5mm ride height all round. front 2 deg camber 1 deg toe out
4 droop & same oil & springs as rear. This was on a bumpy low traction track with a nice mix of tight & open sections. I also ran the one way & 35 tyres all round (foam nitro shoes)

congrats man!, Are there many who run NTC3 in your location? I am testing the lowest rear arm position on the new V2 shocktower. Hopefully it works for me.

Where exactly did you find this?

Or the mugen clutch for that matter, can't seem to find either

Default mugen clutch

you can get the mugen one at mitro house for about 50 dollars,motor mounts also if they have them (about 15 dollars).i just got mine this week and the ld3 2 speed so i can use the .8 gearing.if you buy the trinity one you are stuck using the gears they offer only.hope this helps you out.
hey guys how about the camber link position as this makes the roll center,thats what i really want to know.any shims on the carrier?

you mean that you are using the mugen clutch on the NTC3 with LD3 pinions?

Higher inner camber link = lower RC.

Not too many NTC3s getting around in AU, Everyone here is either a Mugen or Snake lover with a handfull of RRs & FWO5s.
I run it because I have been an AE fan since getting my first RC10 in 1991. I only know of one other V2 in AU at the moment, at least in Sydney anyway. The V2 I think is a big improvement, mainly no rear links to pop off. I dont understand all of the tuning options it offers like roll centre etc. Any more than the basics, shocks, caster, camber, toe & droop & I get a bit lost. I am trying to organise one of the pro guys to hold a setup night to explain all that stuff to some of the guys at my club that are ready to move up to the next level.

What is the real advantage (actual advantage) of having a centax on NTC3..? I have seen quite a lot of centax (kawahara and yokomo and 3racings....) they are not any faster, reaction are definitely not faster, launching is not better but definitely heavier.....

At the end they are changed back to 3 shoes or stock 2 shoes with holes at the shoes clutch....

Simple things out sometime is not a bad idea....and isn't it the stock NTC3 is already a somekind of 0.8 pitch gearing already...?
