Is anyone still running this car?

Is there any point someone buying one at the moment or has Associated pulled the pin on it?

Pretty much dead in US. One of the better cars on a small technical track. other than that can not hang with the mugen,kyosho,serpent. I believe Associated nitro team has been dissolved at the moment. Concentrating there efforts on the new BELT electric car

Thanks... not interested in something that has no after market support. Real shame cause my original NTC3 was fast

I have evo-RR and RRR... but now go back to me previously shelved car NTC3..

Dude... gear ratio for long track: 20/54 and 27/48 .. you'll be fying over 710, MTX4 and RRR on the straight and cutting infornt of them in the corner..

These is odd .. the ratio is not in AE table.. try it.

I know its an ancient post - but ANYBODY tried this ratio - I am not convinced that it will mesh - correct me if I am wrong but the stock ntc3 rtr + ratios are 26/54 22/48 - and of course this meshes - he is proposing to increase one pinion and decrease the other


please correct me if I am wrong - track has changed and been made a hell of alot larger and I need more legs

The stock RTR + gearing is 22/26 clutch and 54/50 spurs.It has a 4 tooth difference..I always ran 21/27 clutch gears and 54/48 spurs..

Gearing I used (for short track) was 20/54 26/48, for longer 21/54 27/48, It was no need to change position of engine, mesh was OK for both.

so from what i am seeing if there a 6 tooth difference pinion there needs to be a 6 tooth difference spur

example - 21/27 will mesh with 53/48 - difference of 5 teeth between both - is this true - just dreamed this ratio up - yes i know there is no 53 tooth - but if there were would it mesh

Right from what I've learned the difference MUST be the same..It might look like it meshes properly but it doesn't...

forgive me, but what size nuts should I use? its metric here in Australia and afaik NZ too, they pretty small and as best I can tell for some reason bolt co's don't stock imperial nuts/bolts this small - great idea btw will set about finding some nuts to use

yes I checked the manual, it no list a size for the top thread of the rack mount pins
