I recently stripped the cylinder head where you put the glow plug in of my ntc3 rtr engine. I've ordered a replacement two weeks ago at my local hobby shop here near me. And they are telling me its on back-order all these days and i think that is just poor on them (fantasia hobbies). On the other hand they told me that i can only fit the stock head and nothing else. I've seen on tower that they're wrong that there are aftermarket from AE that makes them. The thing is i didnt know it would cost around $40.00! If i do decide to purchase this what are the pro's and con's? Any other aftermarket heads for this .12 ae engine for less? Thanks.

Well i've been searching on ebay and im comming across some .12 engine. They are fairly cheap and if im going to pay $30 for an engine head i might aswell give an extra $40 for a new engine.
I have little knowledge of engines and which are good for ntc3. I know OS are reliable and cheap. I don't want to spend 100+ for an engine.
What are some engines that i can afford that would be around that price on ebay. I see there is os's and team associated engines but what should i get. I'm looking for easy tuning engine fairly quick i have a stock rtr. Please reply ASAP im in need of an engine or head!
Names and info on engine would be good thanks.`

Get an OS , easy to tune and relaible , just keep the temps below 230 and it will last .

Its hard to find a quality engine for below $100 these days .

3 shoes will grip harder than 2 shoes. More contact area.

Default What Pipe?

Hey guys, i race an RB V12 Turbo powered NTC3 in Australia and im using an OFNA pipe! My car just seems to hit a brick wall at 3/4 of the rev range! I have tried different gearing and the problem is still there! The general opinion here seem to be that the RB does not like so many 'S bends' in the pipe, and also the length of the pipe. Unfortunately in Australia, there are barely any NTC3's racing so i cant really compare with other racers at the track. If anyone is running an RB V12 in a NTC3, what pipe are you using and how do you find it! Thanks (p.s. tune is good and running trinity 16% nitro)
