Rotary to Slide carb for NTC3 questions

I plan on installing an OS CV-R with slide carb in my RTR NTC3. Is there a linkage kit available just for this particular application? Anyone have pics of their TC3 with a slide carb so I can see exactly how it should be installed.

Obviously by my post count, I'm new here. Looks like an awesome board! Thanks for any help!

Default Carb linkage

Hello - I have one of each and made the same transition, you can use the stock linkages and just use a 90 degree servo crank instead of the 180 degree.

I've been running nitro for 3 months.

Go to the AE website and look at the pics of the new NTC3, it shows you a top view of the lay out, or look in your manual.

Just make sure the linkages don't bind up cuz they will rub and stick and potentially stick open the throttle. I bent the throttle up a little to clear the brake.

I also run the OS, they ain't the quickest, but I've never had a flame out. Just keep the idle up and use a little drag brake when in neutral

I also run a slide carb in the NTC3. I turned my servo around and used a 90 degree arm, a few custom bends and a little tweaking.
