Thanks KS: The chassis looks and seems like the flex will all be gone!! And it removed 21 grams of weight!! With this chassis I also went back to the Ae fuel tank with the lid mods and it seems to work fine now. I guess the Ae is alittle to weak causing to much vibration. Trophy race Sat. we'll see how it works!!

Don't understand Joel, it's stupid to pay $50US for a chassis or cheap? The GH chassis is well worth it!!!!

My post did not make sence i guess.

What i mean is the chassis is only 80$CND so its going to be really cheap americans with US funds.

I agree its a great chassis at a great price

Questions for the NTC3

In the NTC3 manual Associated states to use the stiffer clutch springs for lower powered engines and the stock softer clutch springs for higher powered engines. How do you know when you have a lower powered engine. The lowest powered engine I know of is the O.S. 12CV. Whatabout a O.S. 12CVR? Would that be a low or a high powered engine-hell there all high powered to me. Also, everyone is telling me that the stock gearing is too high for the car, is this also true?

The CV is low powered and im pretty sure the CVR is too. I think when they refer to high power they are talking anything in the 1HP and up range like the new OS TR and Novarossi.

I have heard the stock gearing is too high as well. I ordered up some smaller pinion gears to try out.

I run on 120x40 track

The CVR is not low powered. It is a 1 hp engine.
The CV is the low powered engine. .56 hp.

Trust me the CVR is very capable of keeping up
with the Nova Rossi MT. I have run a CVR against
a MT and both have same speed on straight. And I
was At 230 degrees he with the MT was at 260.

The Clutch springs are more as a tuning tool.
If you dont think that your car gets out of the Gate
fast enough, then use the heavier springs. Engine
will rev up higher before engaging. If your on
a loose or slipery track and don't have traction.
Try the softer springs to bog the Engine a little.
Hit the tires Softer.

Hi guys!

I'm trying to catch up with this forum on the NTC3 but I simply can't because there are too many pages to read.

Anyway, I'll be getting my NTC3 next week and I was wondering how the performance is when compared to a Serpent Impulse, Kyosho V1R, Mugen MTX2... etc, etc.

I used to own a electric TC3 Team and loved that feeling of "bulleting" off right after a corner everytime I raced against others. It simply has the spontaneous feel, or perhaps, it's electric. Sold it due to parts availability here in my country.

Yeah, back to my question on the lap timing for this NTC3 compared to the other makes. I"m thinking of racing competitively with this NTC3 after getting it dialled to my driving style (rash, right up to others' rear end before I hit my brakes & NOT hitting up to them, just like the real F1s do).

Also, does that main drive shaft (centre 4WD Drive shaft) get twisted??

I'll be mounting a RB .12 5-Porter into the NTC3. So I'll need advice.

Thanks!
Alfie

Thanks Joel and 2fast4U2, The CVR is stated by OS to be 1hp. I'm gonna keep the stock springs and try going down 1 tooth on both pinions. Thanks for the input, it helped alot.

Alfie, I really can't tell you how the NTC3 performs compared to the others cars since this is my first nitro but I can tell you that alot of the nitro racers at my track have switch to the NTC3. They say it's a good handling car that's fast.

Yeah, from the designs and layouts, I am very sure it is a very fast car!

Proudwinner, it sure is fast, but it has compromised its durability.

In my country, I will probably be the only one driving this bullet. No one seems to be bringing this great kit in at all.

By the way, does the bearings on this NTC3 last longer than other makes?
