Default NTC 3 Clutch setting

ALL THE EXPERTS with NTC3, Help

I have been TRYING to set the clutch for NTC3 and can't get the thing right. It would either engage too early or it slip during high RPM!!!!

Tried the heavier spring with holes on the shoes, it would slip in high rpm.
Tried heavier spring with standard shoes, engage too early and lack of punch!!!!

worst using 3 shoes, it would engage even with a light touch of the throttle.




WHere is the centrax clutch for this car!!!!

I'm confused.

Heavier copper springs should cause the clutch to engage later.

The clutch should not slip at higher rpm if they are assembled right and the shoe fully extend out and lock onto the bell. Is there oil or grease in the bell and shoes? What about the shoes in the 2 speed. The slip you notice could be from that and not the clutch itself.

With the 3 shoe system, what springs are you using? The heavier copper springs should work well.

You so funny.

I use the x12 RB 5 port engine and mine works great!! I added to holes in the shoes for more revs before lockup . I'd look for grease or something in the clutchbell or 2 speed slippage, another thing you might want to check is the diffs could be way to loose.

thank guys , and of course Manitcore

The first thing I checked was the diff, so no problem there.

I was able to accelerate out of tight turn OK but when it comes to short straight, I can't Really push it like I was driving the Vone RR in the short straight then turn and short straight etc..etc...
NTC3 suppose to be better in acceleration with the shaft design so I guess need to try more setting.

May be my 2 speed that is slipping!!!!! The first thing that Team Asso recommend me to look at is the 2 speed. But how would it slip, is so simple

Did you assemble the 2-speed correctly? Nothing installed backwards is there?
