I would've thought it was the opposite, since shift cars have torque steer and belt cars don't, but I always liked the punch shift cars have out the corners especially entering the straight. Im going to get a NTC3 soon.

I am currently building my ntc3, and I am putting ofna diff lock lube on the all my clutch shoes and two speed shoes and bells... Anybody ever tried that before? It makes the surfaces pretty tacky, which should stop that endless slipping that AE clutches are known for.... Can't wait to try it guys.....

I'm running an older Nova Rossi .12 that I got at the local track. The car handles beautifully with my current setup but you can see where newer cars handle better in faster technical areas of the track. I still have a few tweaks left but I'm not expecting to blow away the serpents xrays and the rest it just won't happen with the ntc3.

Cool

The corners have me worried because I trimmed my arm mounts alot, and I raised the shock towers just so I can further lower the roll center. I don't know how that is going to affect the car. I had good results with similar changes to my tc4 , and hope it will be the same with the Ntc3....

What was weak about the version1 rear suspension? Was it just the shock tower or was it the rear toe-links? Will "the fix" make it handle a little abuse?

yes the fix will help on both ends on version 1 cars as it normally rips the shock towers off the diff housing

Oh yeah? Do tell! I have one and could never make the thing competitive. Way too twisty through the straights with the shaft drive.

If you run diffs front and rear, then it will be difficult to keep the Ntc3 going straight... With a spool/lcd combo up front, it's fairly easy to go straight...
