The Ntc3 is an older car. So you you might not get many replies. But any .12 size rear or side exhaust engine will work all the way up to an .18

Hi, I use JL RedDot with RD logic pipe with shortened header. It is good and helps rev more top. Try to check info about world version of AE pipe used by B.Baker. About sloap in steering, use bearings, and I used Team Magic 4.8 mm balls and ball ends. No problems since that time. Maybe aluminum version of rack is also OK, only expensive. IMHO there is no need to use centax, 3 shoe clutch is enough. About setting try to check threds for Fabian Kaloustian posts, they are very usefull. All this thead is full of good info. I know - too long:-). And definitely use Fix for front. Good is also replace screws for 3M version- european - for cases. Except this (and aluminum hexes) stock plactick parts. And dont forget to use correct shims for transmission. Car is still fast, definitely not too much fragile and easy to maintein. How people says, practise and then try use something more powerfull. Later on decide to stay with NTC3 or change to something else.

I run a OS 18 TZ that I modded and I keep stripping the rear drive pinion.So I have decided to go with a .12 so I can get away from fixing it after every run.

Hi guys, I recently had a problem with my steering in my NTC3. I fixed it due to the servo setup. Now at top speeds it has a lot of steering but less speed. If I want a little bit more speed out of it, how should I adjust my shockies? Raise the front and back? I believe if the car is low to the ground with a better centre of gravity that helps the steering but brings down the speed, is that correct? So, if I were to raise the front and rear shockies would I get anymore speed out of it? The motor I am using is a Hyper 12 turbo engine if that helps.

Thanks, any help will be appreciated

Also, If I were going for more top speeds, what would be some good gears to put in such as the amount of teeth? Hope I am making sense here. At the moment I have the stock gears so if I get bigger pinions and smaller spurs the car will go faster but less accelaration, correct? So what gears should I put in? Remember, I have the stockies at the moment.

Thanks

I believe that the 21/27 pinion and the 54/48 spur is the tallest available from Associated. That and uncut foams (tallest) should yeild the highest top speed.

Hi Zootcapri Thanks for the info. Just one question, you said they are the tallest available. Would there be too much strain on my Hyper 12 engine if I used them gears or should it be fine? Thanks

I have run two engines with that gearing... the NovaRossi three port and the Collari. Both were run with this gearing at the Silverbowl track in Vegas. The straight is something like 190 feet long and you will wind it up... briefly each lap. If you just plan on running on the street and seeing how long you can keep it pegged... you'll be shopping for motor parts pretty soon with any motor. Soo... to answer your question I would need to know where you are going to run it...

It will just be a street basher, not for racing. Pretty much for top speed runs. The road is a quiet road and only one car passes every hour or so, so it is very quiet. It is about half a mile long.

You will probably wear out/break the motor....but... having a ton of fun in the process. Good Luck
