With the right setup, the NTC3 can still be competitive in some tracks (mainly short/medium tracks). As I see it, the car has 2 main issues:

- the diff gears cannot handle the power of today's motors (especially on high traction and bumpy tracks),
- the very limited tuned pipes availability.

If these 2 issues were solved (and the parts durability increased), I believe the car would be competitive in almost all tracks.

Hi Joe

I have had both NTC3 & CD3/FW05R...

Both cars work really well and drivetrain is very efficent. Advantage with the Cd3/Fwo5 is gas cars have a tentancy to squat at the rear under accerleration and when this happens it is less likely to pick up rocks in the spurs as the 2 speed is in the centre. Also i don't know if you can prove it or not but the airfilter position on the NTC3 is sitting right in the hot air as it exits the engine heatsink. This all said both cars worked really well and are competitive with those belt drive chassis's.

I hope this helps, i would check to see which car you can get parts easier in your local area.

Would like to give the pipe a go, I'm using the early version of the One piece rear exhaust Turbo pipe for the NTC3 from RDLogics this pipe has been good but damaged it last race, was thinking of getting a nother RDLogics or FT dual pipe or the OFNA pipe or the Werks Pipe but I have not made up my mind get

I have an NTC3FT for sale fitted with a Top .12 which has only just been run in. Plus loads of spares including a K-Factory chassis. See attached pictures. Anyone interested PM me and I can let you have more details.

Yes, I've run the pipe quite a bit. Best I've tried. Really suits high-winding engines.

In my opinion this is the best pipe for the TC3 but it is kinda fragile.

For anyone that might be interested, I bought a NEW front one-way for my electric late model based on a TC3, and it was a supposed universal fit for all Associated TCs, but the outdrive cups are longer and shallower, and they don't fit in my car. The unit is a NTC3 one-way and is brand new.

I need an electric HD version, so if anyone happened to do the same thing I did and bought the wrong one, I'd be interested in trading for the correct drive cups (the center housing and ring gear are the same).

PM me here or hit me on AIM at upon3 if you want to work out a trade.

Default NTC3

I have an NTC3 that I have raced twice. Does anyone have a good tip for the aluminum shocks? Without the bladders, I really dont care for the end-result. Any suggestions? Do you guys run the stock shocks, or do you swap them out? Any help is appreciated.

I run the stock aluminium shocks, and don't have any problems with them. But I think they have to be rebuild more often that the bladder-type shocks...
