Does this pipe have an "nipel" for the pressure to the tank, or is there just a hole like in my asso efra pipe? (Can't see it on the picture)

(hoping you understand what i write )
That pipe has a permanent pressure fitting attached (welded on). I had one, but the pressure fitting interfered with a carbon fiber left side chassis brace, so I sold the pipe.

yea the RD logics pipe does have a pressure fitting but like i300i said it won't work if you have a kFactory or other side chassi brace. if you have the stock braces then it will work fine. I use the FT tuned dual chamber.. as it's quieter than the RD logics or the FT single... and quiet is a issue with me

I gained more steering responce by putting a RC10GT diff spring in place of the weak stock servo spring. I think a lot of guys do this. Be careful the servo screw doesn't rub the frony outdrive cup. I had to dremel mine.

I will try that on my V2 chassis

most onroad guys use slide carbs because of the throttle responce at higher RPMS unlike the rotary carbs often used in offroad.

the NTC3 is great because it's upgradeable as any other car!

The NTC3 factory kit says that only non pull start engines fit. Is there any way I can adjust it so i can put a pull start in there.

You'd need to get different motor mounts and flywheel. The FT kit has exhaust manifold and pipe for a rear exhaust engine. I don't know if you'll find a rear exhaust pullstart engine, so you'd need a side exhaust manifold and pipe. By that time, you are close to the price of a starter box and batteries.
