Ha ha....nah, TC4 does not have all the BLING EFFECT and Hara/Surakarn running, I just love the Pro 4
I heard the 3racing's Universal is very durable, I am looking forward to try one next season....if there is still NTC3. (NTC4..?)

Does anyone remember that someone here had made a real nice looking runtime chart and what time you would have to pit to lose a pit in a given length of a main? I got from this thread but I swear I can't find it now.

I have a chart made by Niklas Edlund which was done for Serpent but you could still use it as it's generic actually. You can download the Fuel Stop Chart from here;

Oh man, that is exactly what I was looking for but I found that image and just used that for now. I will use this one in the future because it will look better when resized since it is a pdf.

The Fix, for the front shock tower is all you will need. It is excellent out of the box.

I'm buliding a FT kit now.

Make sure you have good hex drivers and test the fit of the driver in each screw before you install it. I've found that about one out of ten of the screws supplied are defective. The hex socket is too big and will strip very easily. Very dissappointing for a $350 kit. Luckily, my local hardware store has an excellent selection.

I also found the plastic mounts for the steering servo to be really flimsy, so I'll recommend a pair of aluminum mounts. I got a pair for around $10 on eBay.

Yes....only front tower/gearbox is needed.

Also, do the pressure nipple mod (if you are handy enough playing with drills and JB weld).....put it on the 2nd (last) chamber and seal the existing hole, use a 90 degree nipple, tower selling for like couple $.

3Racing universal, I heard very good call on that...(just change the front pair).

If you want to spend money, try centax....but not necessary. (just something new and does worth a try)....I love mine (mugen)

Last...3 racing or whatever other brand (try www.integy.com) carbon fiber side bracing..........that can prevent the pipe hitting the fuel tank when someone T-BONE you....however, no garantee of the impact might break the side bracing or not, mine is like 2 years and still doing good.

I have never come into this forum before, so I dont know what the front tower mod is, can someone give me a link with pics and what I need to buy. Also a pic of that gas tank mod would be nice.

I hate to do this, especially since I've gotten on others for doing it. . .ouch. . .but

I've been away for a while and I can't seem to find a decent listing of the modified suspension parts - only references to it happening.

Could someone please let me know what I need to change on my NTC3 to bring it up to date? It's all stock (with BMI series 1 chassis). What all is included in the next generation suspension parts?

Thanks (and very sorry. . . )

Well I'm going to continue my build and mount the front shock tower, hopefully someone can shed some light on it before I get too far along.
