I think you might saw someone mentioned it that rub the fuel tank is because they were using the K-Factory (or in USA it is from Trinity) Low CG fuel tank, that tank will rub with the header a little..........

Stock fuel tank has to clearence probelm with RD logic Turbo 2 pipe.

Nope....27T from AE or GH are the tallest pinion for the stock NTC3 clutch bell, and that is Purple (from AE), black is the 26T came with the team kti along with the 22T (blue)...

Ask me more color and what tooth..........I memorized them all since 2002.....(only 20T to 27T, not that hard to memorize...LOL)

how can i get more steering out of my ntc3, i have a futaba s9451 steering servo and it seems that i always take a big radius of a turn. i can't get anymore steering out of the servo because the servo horn hits the upper deck going right and can't turn anymore going left? what can i do??

You may want to adjust your ackerman, roll center, and front and rear toes.

...........and springs, shock oils, dampers, shocks holes position (especially the top holes) sway bars, cambers.........and shores of your foam tires.

The last thing I will check is your SERVO..........to get more steering on the car, servo itself won't do too much, since you already have a more then enough S9451 servo.....

Default I wanna read some tweak stories.

What are tweak stories? Tweak stories is something you did you to your ntc3 that made a big difference in performance and racing or the worst.

With my old car, the first time I ran at the track, I was hit big time by another car at full speed.

I never really thought too much about the damage except to replace a shock shaft and end since they broke.

It wasn't until a couple of months later and learning to drive around the cars' poor handling that it dawned on me that the chassis was bent like a banana! Needless to say the car was never right.

As for good tweaks, a day spent playing with the blade front sway bar in every possible setting helped show me just how much or how little steering I could get out of the car with just the swaybar changes.

Small steps.....

Zoom, are you coming to Sydney in OCT for the AU Titles, it would be nice to not be the only NTC3 competing, everyone over here has got a thing for Serpent & Mugen.
