you also need to check gear mesh in more then one or to places...i usually check both 1st and 2nd gear meshin about 7-8 places each...slight tick of play move slghtly around the whole gear...sometimes it will be perfect in one spot and too tight in another...adjust accordingly!

Need Opinions on Tuning My NTC3! opinions on my clutch/suspenion set up needed!!!!

Sup fellow NTC3 owners

Need some opinions on tuning my NTC3.

I mainly do parkng lot racing with friends so need some opinions for that.

I am having some lil problems with the back tending to swing out.
Dunno if it's my finger being itchy at times or just my set up?
The car has a hard time with traction on black tops but has good grip on textured lots

Here is a run down on my set up.
please let me know what i should improve on to make her handle better as far as shock oil and spring choice ball diff settings or whatever u pro's rec.

SUSPENSION:
25-lbs. Copper springs in front running 70-wt. oil
22-lbs. Red springs in rear running 60-wt. oil
Blade type sway bar in front w/blades facing up
Rear anti-roll bar
Droop set at "4" in front & "3"-rear (factory rec.)
Camber set @ 2-degree's front & rear (factory rec.)
Toe set @ 0-degree's in front & 2-degree's in the rear (factory rec)
Caster set @ 9-degree's in front (2-clips/factory rec.)
Ride height is @ 5.5mm (factory setting)
Rear V.2 suspension upgrade
APS Take Off 22-compound rubber tires

ENGINE/DRIVETRAIN:
MUGEN MT.12 turbo SG crank motor
AE Factory Team large foam/large bore air filter (anything better?)
AE Factory Team gearing (54/21 1st & 48/27 2nd)
AE Factory Team Lightweight clutch bell
AE Factory Team 3-shoe flywheel
AE stiffer clutch springs
Ball diff in front set @ 1/4-turn in front (factory rec.)
Ball diff in rear set @ 1/2-turn in rear (factory rec.)
K-FACTORY hard coated front input cup
K-FACTORY hard coated brake cup

QUESTION ABOUT CLUTCH SPRING set up:
As far as the clutch goes i have upgraded to th 3 shoe set up and i bought the Associated stiffer clutch springs for it but i was going through my manual and saw in there that they only rec. using the stiffer clutch springs for low powered motors and the stock ones for high power motors.
Is my MUGEN motor considered low power or high power?
I know this motor is pretty damn fast (1.15-HP) so im assuming it's high power?
But back to the clutch springs.....should i chnge them back to the stock ones or just keep the stiffer ones in there?


Sorry for the very long post everyone but im just trying to find out help to improve my car.
Let me know if left any other information out.

THANX!

Default Under the hood

OK but bear in mind that I didn't want to butcher my TC3 untill I was sure this was going to work so Its not really high tech but if it handles well then I will spend some time fabricating the parts to make it nice. I had this engine in my MTX2 and it was a rocket but kind of a handfull to drive.I think it will do better in the TC3 because the engine is more twards the center and I was shocked how well it scaled I havent had a chance to drive it yet but it sure sounds mean . the biggest pain in the arss is the exhaust pipe for a 21 is way big and hard to conceal the pipe thats in it is from a savage

I know this is gona sound stupid but see if you can get 9 or 10 mm ride hight out of the rear and see if that tightens it up a little . This is just a test you really don't want to leave your car that high but it can help trubleshoot the problem Post what it does and will go from there.

Very nice buddy. Looks like the engine is clamped on two engine mount screws? How did you accomodate the pipe towards the rear?
