psidawd-an improvement over stock, but not as good as a yokomo centax.

hobbyman_7- I don't know where you live but Ace usually has good deals. As well I've heard winners circle is also a good place. I've dealt with R/C Mushroom and Dinball. I like the Jaco tires on Serpent rims? Bruckner may be a good place just shop around. Hope this is helpfull
PS: you should pay about $10.00 a pair give or take.

Default ntc3 model numbers?

I am now thinking about getting a factory team ntc3 but i saw people mentioning which model they had, (like the 2033)---i think---anyway is there any difference between the ft like there was with the rtr(one having a 2 speed and v2 suspension and the other not)

You have to decide you want RTR or you want the KIT only.
RTR is ready to run, need nothing else
KIT is car only, need radio equipment, engine, tires and stuff
Factory team is with some nice options, must have if you are going to RACE.
Team version is basic version, with V2 suspension and 2 speed, but the rest are stock...

P.S....Factory team also have V2 and 2-speed plus other alum options.

It does not matter, they both will fit. One is tighter with little room than the other. Both will work fine.

I never tried the MIP clutch. I always found the stock clutch fine, with a little tuning. Unless you are looking for a few 10ths of a second a lap you will not need to touch the standard clutch (once it is installed correctly). I tried all the centax clutches for the NTC3 & found that bearing failure was a problem, due to the layout of the car the clutch bearings overheat & fail. The Mugen centax was the best, but it still wasnt worth the cost or hassle in my opinion.

I concur. When I ran the car I had the most success with the standard clutch mechanism. I briefly experimented with the Mugen centax, but experienced problems with one-way bearing (1st Gear) and rear diff. failures. The standard clutch is more than adequate, and extra adjustability (engagement point) can be obtained by modifying the clutch shoes.
Hope this helps

PSiDAWD-if your using the standard springs (black) and full shoes. You could add a set screw or (grub screw) to the back of the shoe's? or try a three shoe set up? I myself tried to hold the clutch back. To allow the engine to be at a higher RPM when it engaged.I race on prepared surfaces though so traction isn't usually a problem. That would be the only reason I would loosen up the spring on my Centax (engage earlier).

ok- i got a jr rs 300 and jr xs3 from tmaxx(awesome seller) and i have the rtr+ ntc3. The stock servos are fine for me. This should still be a good setup with stock servos, correct? My main concern for now is just being able to have a synthesized radio. I can still adjust all the options like panic and static brake, right?
