That would be UTI (stock) or bottom (low) inner.

UBI would be top (up) inner.

UBO would be bottom (low) outer and UTO would be top (up) outer.

The one you were asking is a 5 port engine. Would that be legal to race with at your track?

That's a Top 3 port engine equivalent to the Novarossi 3 port NS or NSR. That would be a good engine.

Depends on my question earlier. I hope you realise that you're asking about 5 port Novamega against 3 port Top / Novarossi engine...

Look at the setup Poalo gave for Kissimmee regional and maybe you can explain what the rear positioning is?

Nah, I am not worried about him cheating. I know he would probably kick my a** with any car. His is not the only NTC3 out there... all the NTC3 drivers should be aware of this insert thingy. Don't want to have anyone inadvertantly caught with their pants down due to an oversight. Especially if they go to a larger race where rules are more rigidly enforced.
I don't realize there is more NTC3 at our track? I thought most of the cars are Mugen or Serpent...

no the novamega would not be legal at my race track but its only a 20 dollar difference from the tsr12 and the novamega if the novamega is a better engine why not?

I tried yellow front and rear red and the car had a lot of on power steering. That was on my diff setup. The rear wasn't slipping at all.

I'm going to stand up the shocks a little more in the rear and see how it goes.

BTW, I'm currently using 4x1.2 mm pistons with 40wt Serpent shock oil front and rear. I believe Julius used 5x1.2 mm pistons with 50wt Serpent oil front and rear.
Thanks D

I am running whites on Front and yellows on rear, want to try yellow and red. I have not yet played with the shock holes or weight and only running standard. Not using ther front sway bar either. Did you find a big difference when changing to 1.2?

My Shock pos is 3, on the rear, made the car feel fantastic steering wise, I was suffering for a little steering. Made a big difference in the fast corners

Default Steering servo rod clearance

Have anyone had any problems with the steering rod hitting the
belt up front or should I get another servo arm for more
clearance...

Thanks

Exclamation BRACKET MIDDLE SHAFT ALU

The BRACKET MIDDLE SHAFT ALU has arrived! Part number is 802155.
I not alble to connect my DV-camera to my PC, but it looks sweet
Also i forgot to measure the weight, but from what i've heard is that it isn't much heavier than the plastic one (about .8 gram i think!)

Standard alu color like the new Alu radioplate braket. Not Purple like 3racing and the old Serpent options parts.

Yes, Marc Degagne (?) was racing nitro on-road for the first time this past weekend with a NTC3. He won in the B main, and is probably good enough to be in the A main next time.
