I think most manufacturers have gone off shaft drive chassis for Pro Tourers so i don't see any of this being reality. I think the reasoning behind is to do with the more and more powerful engines that have become available and as the grip comes up it reveals the weakest point (eg crown and pinion gears).

i see your point, and having the pick up points as low as possible is a good thing. maybe i am confused as well, but maybe under braking is what i may mean. only when there isnt enough fuel to cover the pickup points. with the tank pressurised if any air can enter the pick up points it certainly will pick up some air, but for the first 4 minuets or so it shouldnt be a problem. i know in a real car tank, manufacturers have a second fuel pump to make sure the primary pump is well delivered of a fuel supply, such vehicles being Subarus. maybe what can be done is to baffle the tank at the bottom, with very small holes at the bottom say 2 small holes in a line of 3 baffles per side to stop the fuel from going forward under braking when the level is too low. cheers.

Have you used the RDLogics pipe for the ntc3 that is what I am using at the moment but was damaged last race.

Sorry i havent used RDlogics but a few of the guys that i raced with that had NTC3's did and i only herd good things about it! the only thing i herd about the RD is that the stinger is very easy to break but i have never used one before

This is very good to hear i just pulled mine down from the self a few days ago and will be running it for as long as i can keep wheels on it its a very good car but sometimes jumping a the bandwaggon is all for the wrong reasons some people say that the NTC3 is ugly and thats why they made the switch but thats stupid.... but sometimes it can be for the good faster lap time LHS support etc... but in that case the NTC3 woulednt still be around and from what im hearing it is still turing out lap times like it was a belt drive car!! and its really easy to work on lol Hey sheer29 do you have any pics of your car? what kind of track do you run at (small,med,big parking lot etc...)

err "bring it back" - it never left imho shaft drive is king idk why there isn't more of them, its still very competitive with the kyoshos, mugens etc.... what lets it down as mine dont like being stacked as hard as I do - the car has both the speed and the handling to match it with these cars, and its alot cheaper than them, if only parts support in oz were better - ok enough of that heres my question :

is there a way to simulate "thicker" diff oil by modifying the front diff - come up with a few ideas on as to how this could be achieved (increasing the friction of the balls on the plates for example), just wondering if anybody tried it and if it worked

I thought that setting the diff's tightness did the trick of simulating thicker diff oil!

i want it TIGHTER more stiff more like a solid axle than the 1/4 turn out from tight ae say is as tight as one can go, i am assuming that if you somehow made the diff balls in the gear drag a bit, say with a round peice cardboard either side of balls it would make it feel tighter and work more like a solid axle..... sorry maybe I am being unclear with what i am asking to accomplish
