Again, MORE traction, we're all here trying to give you tips on increasing rear traction. Imagine with your rear tires coning slightly on the inside edge...when your car takes a RIGHT turn, rolling happens and the tires' contact patch of the outside LEFT wheels shift from the inside to the outside of the wheels. With MORE camber(and hence slightly coned tires), when the car leans towards the outside, MORE contact patch is allowed for grips; hence giving you the traction you need in the corners. Hope I'd explained it clear enough...

I know they do but I can't answer that.

the infos on finding rear traction is quite interesting as I too have had difficulties taming the rear of this car on corner exit and to distill the posts down to a few sentences here is what my take on what people suggest is :
  • increase front droop (arms drop lower -- lower number on ae guage)
  • stand rear tyres up more by reducing negative camber
  • stiffen front suspension
  • tighten front diff

if this is the case it would appear that I had worked out 2 of the four on my own -- are these correct (yes/no)

on an unrelated matter I was doing some reading on tuned pipes and it would seem that the length of the pipe is crucial in managing the exhaust pulse reaching the exhaust port at the right time - as a result and due to the fact that there is some flexibility in how long the exhaust can be somewhat (courtesy of blue rubber thing) where should the exhaust be placed? - if my research is accurate wrong placement can cause overheating, power loss and quite a few other nasty things

I am running a ntc3 rtr + with all stock engine/pipe components any advice would be appreciated

<<edit>> also I was wondering if the diffs get "looser" with running and wear?

ugh soo many questions sorry guys

On the FT NTC3 i used to get by with 2 degrees toe-in at most tracks.....occasionally i`d run 2.5degrees.

Thumbs up

I've been running this car for over 3 years and it seems like the rear would always sort of whip around sometimes. I found that out of a corner, if you sort of blip the throttle acouple of times before really getting on the pipe, it would keep the rear-end in check. Just as long as the setup is even. I just started running the Mugen MTX-4 but I still enjoy the NTC3 alot.

Hey guys, I am looking at getting a Factiry Team NTC3 and I have some questions. Is there anything I need to take into consideration when building it, other than follow the manual exactly? Are there any upgrades or mods. that should be done? Is there anything that needs to be checked more closely and more often than others? Sorry for the noob questions. I've never raced nitro, just electric. Thanks

RobertM, the NTC3 is really good out of the box. I would get one of the team drivers' setup on the Team Associated website and start from there. Good luck, and enjoy!
