Default NTC3 swing rack help (PLEASE!!!!!)

I have a NTC3 with a after market swing rack made by a company called K factory. Well I had bit of a crash the other day and stripped out one of the screws. All I have is the factory swing rack with bushings I cant fins anywere on the net to get K factory parts. I have seen the bearing upgrade kit for the NTC3 I was wandering if this is a worth while upgrade or if there are any other suggestions for a after market swing Rack. And if anyone has heard of or can find a place to purchase K factory parts apparently you cant order direct off there site.

Hi Drillbit. I still have my NTC3, although I race my r40 more. The stock swing rack is fine when you add the bearings. It's all I have ever used. You might try calling this place, maybe they can help locate a swing rack

Rc mart shows the swing rack as discontinued....

but, as I said, the stock one is fine with the bearings.

I would loose the k factory rack and go with the plastic rack with bearings. I'm not sure if AE offered the swing rack in graphite that would be better yet.


Pass you soon...

I started looking and it is a factory swing rack with the factory bearing upgrade its just has a brace from k factory hold the the swing rack together ( makes it more stable I guess ) Another question anybody got setup specs for the NTC3 I bought the car used and its all out of wack I got it back to factory but I was wandering if anyone has any suggestions as far as setup?

AE has all the downloads for the car.....

and the manuals have all the stock specs and set-ups....


I ran my car with the stock set-up and it worked great. They have a recommended set up for rubber or foam tires...

Just recently installed the bearing kit on my stock swing rack and I noticed it eliminated mostly all of the slop. Now all I need is new ball cups for the servo lever. Then all slop should be gone.
