The spool should be used in the front. It works great for tight tracks.

We race short tracks and with the lowest gearing 50/54, 20/24 and 62/63mm foams and any good modified engine or any higher HP engines the RD pipe seems to work the best. When it's tuned right the engine will get up on the pipe off the turns much faster than the AE pipe. Be sure if you decide to get the RD pipe you get the Turbo version.

The "fix"is really simple;2 screws from bottom of chassis through to the top of the shock tower(see picture).I made mine myself with a supporting plate under the shock tower.Only thing is to find the long screws to pass through it all.

Thanks to the guys that advised me to choose the RD Logics turbo pipe for my RB V12. Awesome power after changing to this pipe. I TQ'd and won the A main on my first outing with this lethal combo!

can I use an engine with a 'threaded' style crank?

such as this - http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MakeTrack=true

and how good is a Picco Collari .12 better or worse than the sirio?

i was thinking about the STS D3R, can't beat the price at 145

any comments please?

Yes you can you just need a different nut to hold the flywheel onto the crank, the threaded part of the crank will have to be cut to the right length but thats about it.

It is called a standard type crank
The other sort is called SG style crank

The NTC3 comes with both types of nuts as far as I know, well at least mine did.

Alot of clutchs come in the 2 different crank style types with the appropriate nut
