Default ntc3 setup

Ok i have a NTC3 FT kit and i put a os tz .12 in it and just got it broken in and running. but im new to nitro racing ive been racing electric for a few years. but im having a little issue with getting the car to handle correctly. the car seems like it has to much power and no traction the car wants to spin around when i get on power at low speed comming out of a corrnor. Ive have 45 front and 45 rear on there. Im running on a low traction track do i need to put in more camber or just change the tires to diff compound

Start here:http://www.petitrc.com/reglages/asso...edRC10NTC3.htm

Also, consider going to 37 or 38 shore for the rear tires.

On a low traction track 45 shore is too hard. I would go 40 front and 37 rear add more rear toe in

Default lower traction

I have found the red spings work a treat with 50Wt oil... I also used 38/38 or 37/37 tires on the week end.. on low to medium traction surface bit dusty... and got heaps of grip. Track Temp was 20c in the morning and went up to 30's during the middle of the day. I have used 40's on a high traction track but they just take so long to get up to speed when the track has less grip..

Cheers

It's a 50 shore tire(very hard) used on very high traction situations.
