Thanks BB, But I think I overextended myself for now. The wife just a 2k christmas bill I didn't know about.
Maybe in the future sometime if you still have it.

CHUCKMANDO: If interested in the chassis I would lower the price some but you pay shipping. PM me and I'll send pics and let you know what's wrong with it. Its just cosmetic and a few scratches on the bottom that I could polish out I think. if I did'nt tell you you would'nt even know with out looking very close. [/B][/QUOTE]

Sorry Sook, I'm use to working with real cars and I call the inside diff gears ring and pinion gears, not working with 1st and second gears.
After cleaning and massaging the first pour on the gears it was not so good.
I'll try another deal maybe this weekend.

I'm thinking of putting a Centax on my NTC3FT. I'm using a Novarossi NS12 S3. Which one should I buy and why? Cost is not a factor.

Some more info. I've been racing for about 1 1/2 years. I've been using the 3 shoe clutch with standard springs. I've used the harder springs in the past. I'm going to start running on a large track, and I'm looking to change clutches or at least expand my options.

I just finished one, myself. Assuming you have a good set of hex drivers, test the fit of the driver in each socket head screw for slop before you install the screw. I found that about 1/4 of the smaller size screws in the kit were junk.

Default Yokomo clutch?

MickeB,

I bought mine from stomer hobbies for 109.00 plus shipping and handling. this is the website http://www.stormerhobbies.com

You need to call because their website does not have it listed. I hope that helps.

You may want to look at the Ofna/Hongnor centax, I bought one for around 60.00off of Ebay. It comes with 21/27 hard coated pinions and looks to be very similar to the mugen centax.

I ran it at our first SWS ROAR race and it really improved the cars punch out of the corners and made a huge difference in the car getting up into the rev's quicker. I am running a O.S. R-spec motor that is modified by TQ racing and my car was running at 215*- 218* on an Exergen temp gun all weekend and was making over 7 minutes on a tank of fuel. I could not have been happier with the motor and clutch.

depends on what centax he had. the first version was a 1.0 module. the new ones are .8 module (will fit ntc3 directly), reallly similar to mugen clutches. with the new clutches, there have been some changes with the spring and trust bearings (i think). the .8 module is still being used in the CD3. hope this helps.

Thank you guys!
I have the ofna clutch and have been running it for a while and it works just fine. The reason for me to get the yokomo clutch is that it is the same as the mugen and since there are more shoes and springs etc for that clutch I can finetune it to suit different tracks more easily.

Hey Bob. Any luck with the internal diff gear testing? It was my mistake to assume that you were talking about the two speed. It would be nice to change the internal gearing for a large track. I know that the 710 is able to configure the internals for small track vs large tracks. Let me know how it goes.
