If you have a machine shop and have a excellent hand, I know pp does SAND DOWN the 2nd pinion gear by like 3mm (or so that you can clear the 1st gear spur), that way, you don't have to do any shimming on the gear box.
have you got photo on the shimming you done on your gear box
where about you added the big shim on the shaft
sorry for this bother i still dont quite understand!!

jeremy.

also is the kawahara centax good and can you use original ae pinions on it????

I will try to open it up and take some photos for you and others...but give me some time, nitro season is over here, snow is coming and = electric indoor season = my Pro 4.

Kawahara CENTAX cannot use original AE gears, no, but kawahara does sell their own gears whcih has the same gears T # as AE (from 20-27 1st and 2nd gear).....I would not recommand buying it cause I don't even know where to get Kawahara in state.

Wait untill AE release the Yokomo one....shoudl be early next year

The Associated team has been using the Yokomo based centax for over a year know with good results. The Yokomo centax uses most of the same components as the Mugen clutch.

Rookie Solara, you playing Pro4 not TC4?

At least you should try TC4 CVD on NTC3. Should be a big boast on CVD strength since TC4's CVD is thicker than TC3/NTC3 CVD.

Default Ofna Centax

I just tested the Ofna Centax in my NTC3 this weekend and worked great, wicked acceleration...
Comes with 21/27 pinions. What more could you want?

21/28T gear combination...

My Picco XP 5ports will reach topend way before the straight line ended. Gotta try 28T as 2nd speed next time.

Try closely inspecting all your bottom suspension arms for hairline fractures, this happened to me on my TC3 once and took me ages of pulling my hair out to find it

Check to make sure one of your shocks isn't slightly bent, also check to make sure your shocks don't bottom out before the chassis hits the ground

You didn't say whether it has been doing it since you got it but if it has check the pistons that you have in the shocks to make sure there isn't a wrong one in there.

Also check all your steering to make sure nothing is loose or bent, and check to make sure your steering servo isn't loose or damaged. Try replacing the steering servo with a different one to test.

Thats about all I can think of hope it helps, I have never personally had any problems with torque steer on my NTC3

Nice looking car. Just want to know what kind of foams are you running?

They're Enneti, they're really nice tires, used to run Nitro Shoes, but these are half the price. Running 35 shore front and rear, they really stick...

I'm looking for some good radial tires. Something as almost sticky as foams but lasts longer.

What your actually looking for are capped tires from BSR. You can get it from rc4less.com They are not cheap, but works well with the right setup and last longer. Just keep in mind that these tires are not ROAR or IFMAR legal.

There are also belted tires. I like belted better than capped since I can still choose the inserts to change the feel and heat generated.

I'll look at who I used to use. . .
