An anyone confirm for me that the AE NTC3 V2 Pull start kit (2034) still comes with front an rear ball diffs? Also while using a pullstart engine in this car, is there any chance you might be able to use a starter box with it... Pullstarts have a habbit of slipping at the worst times

How about the FT NTC3 revised 1 piece bumper (with plate)..? Those FT NTC3 owner, do you still need to upgrade to the RPM one..? Or the revised (new) one is just as good.....thanks.
No need to upgrade the new bumper.

Default box start

I use a starter box on mine even though i still have a pull start motor. The only thing you may have to do is either dremel or file a bit more of the chassis where the flywheel comes through so it can make good contact on the starter box wheel.

New to Nitro--have run TC3 electric for years. With my nitro set up it seems that I bottom out. Using setup in manual any suggestions or will there always be some scraping?

We all know the stock NTC3 and V1 RTR bumper is crap, but the FT NTC3 and V2 RTR bumper are revised and improved.........

Expect that will happened......NTC3 chassis is by far the widest chassis that you can see from any 200mm nitro car......the wider you get, the more chance that it will scrap the ground........of course, you raise your ride heigh to 6.5 or even 7mm and you can try that and see that will help but it will definitely ruin the handling of the car.....

Just let it scrap......I purchased a 4mm 7076 chassis. it scrap like hell, but it last me forever.

But on some tracks a 6.5mm ride height will improve the handling

Probably.....but I just want to bring out the point that, NTC3 chassis is a lot bigger/wider then 710, MTX3 or other belt drive car's chassis........reason the side edges get scratched is because it does rub the ground when it turns....when you have a narrower chassis....the edge is harder to touch the ground even though both car are set with the same ride heigh....

The V2 RTR bumper is crap if you prang it hard. It wont go back into shape no matter how hard you bend it!

Rookie is totally right. A guy with a NTC3 at a large fast track I run at scrapes the hell out of his chassis and my R40 chassis generally does not touch the ground. His car seems to handle pretty well even though it is bottoming out when cornering.
