I use 35/35 shore Jaco, but the traction on our tracks is low. They only last 1 event, 30 min.

Thanks....I'll order some more tires before next Nitro season. Theres only 2 more races for me (and I'll probably only make 1) I'll probably try a one-way next race to see how it handles

Try 42/40 shore tires, with a 21/27 and 48/54 gearing setup.

or even 42/37. That seems to work for me. I also choose Mono for my NTC3 since they grip nicely and dont chunk as easy

Default mtx3 clutch in tc3

rookie solara,
i did this conversion it will work but you need the ld3 motor mounts.also the flywheel will be very close to the brake disc.too close for me actually,i took some material off the flywheel in a lathe.it also puts the motor very close to the fuel tank.its too bad the k factory one cant use the same gears as mugen,serpent,ofna.it will work but its tight.check nitro house for the ld3 one its alot cheaper than the mtx clutch and its exactly the same.hope this helps.

I would like to learn more in this area of truing. I think I can cut about 3 degrees camber with my machine. Never tried it yet, and No one seems to want to help with setups in this area. So if I was too true foams with like 2 camber, would I set the car up with 0 camber or use the same camber?? This is an interesting subject anyone have an experiences with this?? BB

If none or not much results from the one way put a solid in the front and back the rea diff off to 1/4 to 1/2 and see if you like it. I would reccomend going to the mip shiny cvds. with the solid it eats the stock blue cvds with modded HP. The shinys are heavy but you won;t spin one out in a main like the bue ones. With our track configuration we shaved alost a full second off lap times and 2 to 3 extra laps in 5min mains with the solid. BB
