I would run it if its a large sweeping track. Tight tracks where you have to brake oneways are a little difficult. Oneways will help carry more speed through the turns.

AE oneways do cost about 40 USD or so, so it would be something to look into after you practiced a lot with the front ball diff. When you can get around the track okay and are in search of more speed through the corners, oneways are the way to go. I just love the acceleration right after the apex using the oneway...

Thanks for the advice. Advice I will take. I will practice with the double diff setup before giving the one-way a try. My driving is progressing but I am not challenging my setup. My lap times are coming down and I am making clean runs but I am still the limiting feature of this adventure. The car is planted and has not shown any tendancy to over or under steer just go where the intrepid pilot points it.

It is a direct replacement for the stock plastic bumper, take the 3 screws out from the bottom and the whole bumper assembly comes apart, I have one on my NTC3

I think I may know why. Probably you have the Version 2 of the NTC3 and it might have come with a one piece front bumper (V2 Bumper)

whereas the RPM bumper was made for the old Version 1 NTC3 that included this short bumper (V1 bumper)
.
In other words for you to use that RPM bumper you need to get this ASC2226 "short bumper". I hope this helps.

K-factory tank is a good upgrade, K-Factory radio plate and side brace is good too. Also K-factory front hubs and front upper arm mount/shock tower

My car with all the K-factory bits on it
