people,

I just wondered what people felt about comments being made by people that the problem with the NTC3 not running or having engine problems is from the engine not being able to suck air very well because of the location of the carby? I think that it might be from the flywheel actually being too light and people having problems to get the motor to idle as well.

As you will see i have addressed the fuel tank problem with previous posts.......

Isn't that just the new revised lid everyone has been talking about?

Hooked on,

when I was talking about the carb on Dennis' thread, I meant that the carb itself is getting too hot.

You can use a 1/8 th scale buggy air filter with a elbow to get the filter out into the cooler air, but the carb itself sits right behind the cooling head and is only getting hot air fromthe head.

Hot carb = vapor locking

Now it's the flywheel?! Have you seen a RC10GT non-pull flywheel? C'mon guys, IF anything it's the tank. I myself didn't experience any problems with tuning and run time and thats with a supposedly hard to tune Novarossi(Mugen MT12) and stock everything.

Many at my local track have modified the tank by relocating the pressure nipple and soft mounting BUT most of them did so because of what they read on the various forums, not because of problems they experienced. However, I do think that the pressure nipple on the lid is a better design and it should be included in the newer kits.

A far as the carb location is concerned, there is lots of clean cool air everywhere under a sedan body, especially while the car is moving and that there is enough window cut outs, so I don't think we should blame the way the engine/carb is situated for the problems either.

I also did the relocating the pressure nipple trick and it made no difference, but i no of others that have done this and never had a problem. I am now using a Ofna tank as you can see from my photos in previous posts. My question was that i am still having problems getting my motor to idle and keep a tune and thought it may have been because of the flywheel, but it might not be seeing i am having engine failures..........

Ok now you can add me to the list of guys who have experienced fuel tank related flame-outs. It only happened druning the hard racing of the main; hmm... air bubbles maybe? Going to install the Mugne tank tonight; end of problems. I have also come to the conclusion that heat is causing the one way gears to go at Cincy. The gear boxes get extremely hot there and the gears just can't take the beating. One of two options here, cut out a couple gear cases for air flow, or fill the cases with oil to cut friction and absorb heat. I think I'll try the oil first since its less work.

Lightbulb Cool news for us NTC3 racers!!!

Rear Toe-In Links!!!! A++++ More testing on the prototype NTC3rear toe in links is very positive. This weekend out of all the NTC3's at the tracks, all but two of us experienced compression of the rear toe in links-effectively ending those peoples runs. I had a few incidents in lapped traffic and was put in the boards and the toe links did not compress. I am very happy with them so far!!!

In one incident, the link popped off and the turn marshall was able to pop it back on and car was perfect after the crash and I was able to continue!!!!



Fuel Tank I mounted a Mugen Fuel tank on my car for this weekends race and it worked well. No fuel issues of any kind. I too may have had increased fuel economy as well!?!?! I say that because I ran rich one heat and did not run out of fuel.

Ray, I had a chance to check out your car today, toe links look cool. Glad to hear they're working. I ran 3rd in the first qualifier, fourth in the second qualifier, and started in 4th position in the main. My NTC3 was running great all day until I made a classic bone head move right before the main. I decided to switch tire brands and shore ratings. My car was out of control! Needless to say I DNF. This is my first season/first car and I learned a few valuable lessons today. The killer is, that while babying my car around in the main with the wrong tires, I ran my best laps of the day.? I guess speed isn't everything afterall. So here's what I learned: Slower sometimes really is faster; and stick with what works, save the experiments for practice. By the way, the DNF was the result of a right front lower hingepin being pulled out (ouch). My modded stock fuel tank and rear toe links (CA'd) held up all day. All in all my wife and I still had a great time. If you make it to Toledo next weekend I'll stop by and say hello.

NEVER MAKE CHANGES BEFORE A MAIN. EScpecially tires... I got burned this way before...

Also foam tires need a few laps to run them in. Fresh off the truer is not good. They need some run in before use
