The "old" NTC3 is still winning races! The Z12R-powered NTC3 of Fabian Kaloustian won the first race (out of 3) of the 2006 Brazilian National Championship last weekend. The race took place in Rio de Janeiro, at the Rodeo Drive track, that has one of the biggest straights in Brazil (more than 260 feet long).

dohc91crx-I used associated standoffs (originally for L series cars and long flat head screws) to accomplish the same goal. The longer standoffs are all you need, a couple of screws and your set.

To make the clutch engage earlier add weight to the shoe ie a grub screw. To make it engage later either heavier springs ( AE Copper) or remove weight from the shoe either cutting away material or drilling.

I dont think the clutch shoes are the issue with yor car.

yeah you want it shifting later though...so the RPM builds up and you have better punch....with my NTC3 i drilled out a hole in each shoe to make it lighter and i put the harder springs so it loads up with RPM then just takes off it works really well especially witht he FT three shoe clutch system

Hey does anybody know if you can get the axles seperately? I've looked around but am unable to locate?

dohc91crx-the flathead screws need to go all the way through the transmission case and extend about a 1/4" or 4mm.I think they are 2 1/4" but measure to be sure...

I just bought a brand new orion wasp .12 se-ps drone engine. Part number 80061- This should be an awesome motor just for back yard bashing and should be much better than ae's stock .15, right? the box says it is 2.11cc, 34000 rpm, 1.25hp. I wanted an OS and had the money but the guy sold me this instead. I think they are being discontinued? I only paid 79.99!

Just thought I would share this. I have already bought mine and am witing for it to come in.

http://cgi.ebay.com/Ultra-Lite-Drive...QQcmdZViewItem

It is a one of a kind driveshaft that is actually about 30 percent lighter. The stock weighs like 12.6 and this one weighs 8.4 grams.

So now I am going to go for light weight. I am now going to buy a lightweight hub and a lightweight chassis. I can not wait to go non pullstart so I can get the lightweight flywheel. I bet after all that I will be keeping up with the belt driven cars.

Well I installed the driveshaft today and it fits perfect. I can see a difference. Will going to non pullstart and swapping to nonpullstart parts make that much of a difference for acceleration and/or top end?

dohc91crx-I've got to think it's better, lighter and faster...It's just more expensive, but I think the convenience outweighs the expense...Good luck.

Nobody makes 28T pinion gear for NTC3. But instead of using bigger pinion to go fast, use smaller 2ND speed spur gear. KIMBROUGH makes 46T and 44T 32 pitch gears that will fit the NTC3 with some few modifications, part # 116. I used this before at sun valley speedway and it really works, insanely fast.
