Hi guys. I am new to the site. I have owned a rtr hpi rs4 and an hpi r40. It has been 2 years and now I am back into the hobby with an rtr ntc3 plus.


I love it. My mods so far are 48-54 spurs and 21-27 pinion gears. This car has insane speed for an rtr!


Now a couple questions:
The rtr plus has the version 2 rear suspension?
How many hp is the stock motor? Compared to say...a OS .12CV-R pullstart?
Will a new pipe(and which one) will I see the most out of my stock motor?

Hi, I started out with an NTC3 RTR plus, then got a real good deal on an FT car and sold the RTR

1) The RTR plus does have the V2 suspension. The V1 uses front knuckles as rear-uprights and uses turnbuckles to adjust rear toe

2) For racing, the stock engine is weak. For play purposes I'd imagine it'd be fine

3) The stock engine is weak, I eBay'ed mine right away and got a couple Novarossi's (although I am hearing that the new OS engine is good)

it should be released towards the end of 2006 and start of 2007. Associated have said nothing about the specs of the car but there has been a rumour that it will be belt drive.

Default Shock shafts

I'm rebuilding my NTC3. It's been sitting in my closet for the past 2+ years, and it's time to get back into on-road racing. My Q is, I'm considering trying the MIP Golden Shafts (which are ti nitride coated), but some buddies suggested that I should buy the AE Unobtanium shafts instead. Opinions? Thanks.

I recently bought a ntc3 with a .15 picco motor. I noticed that the car dosent move till im at maybe 35% throttle. I assume this would be a clutch adjustment issue.

How do you properly adjust the clutch so it will engage much sooner.

thanks!

Either shafts are an improvement over stock. I personaly liked the MIP shafts.

Either the clutch or some serious binding in the drivetrain. What clutch are you using?

the drivetrains rolls freely. I assume its the stock clutch. It looks like its just not engaging early enough.

would the stiffer clutch springs help?

If you want the engine to engage sooner, then a stiffer clutch spring (copper #2307) is not the answer. You would want the stock springs #2306 and make sure you shim the bell proper by the manual.

If the stock clutch is installed correctly there is not too much that can go wrong with it. You will need to check the parts & make sure they are in good condition. Centax clutches can cause you that sort of problem if not set correctly.

The only thing I can think on the stock clutch that could cause that problem is badly worn or glazed shoes. Try new shoes & clean the inside of the clutch bell with motorspray & scotchbrite. Bad shimming or stuffed bearings will cause it to stall not engage late. Stick with the stock springs untill you need it to engage later, use these as a tuning tool not to try & fix a problem. Hope you get it sorted

I just purchased a NTC3. I'm looking to buy some tires and I see 0 deg. offset and 2 deg. offset. Do they mean MM offset? the deg. I don't understand. What does the NTC3 use, 0 or 2 offset? Thanks for the help.
