(1) V2 rear suspension upgrade....aorund $35
(2) 21 and 27 pinion gear $5 and $5, then reuse the stock 54T spur and get a 48T 2nd spur for 2nd speed...$5
(3) Lightwegiht clutch housing....around $12
(4) The FIX for the front gear box $15, and since you will use the V2 rear suspenion, no FIX need to be install at the back.
(5) If you want some high RPM clutch engagment, get a 3 shoes flywheel and 2 package of clutch (2 on each package, and you will need 3) and 2 package of copper springs ( again, 2 on each package and you will need 3).....this will give you a higher rpm clutch engagment and your clutch will be punchy, not everyone like it but I use it on the large track.
(6) AE Spring sets...it is a must ($30)
(7) front blade sway bar set ($35)
(8) rear wire sway bar set ($25)
(9) Woven carbon upper deck for LOOKS....not really performance upgrade, but just looks better)
(10) 3racing side carbon brace, I think it is a must to protect your tank...
(11) Dual chambered pipe from AE or RDLogics Turbo 2 pipe for NTC3.
(12) RPM bumper, that is the FIRST THING you should get....so put that back to #1 on the your list.
(13) Yellow color diff gear and pinion gear.....heavy duty material.

I think these options will easily erase your $170.....but that is all your NTC3 will be needed....NTC3 can be race with stock equipment, these parts will make your car last longer.........but not forever.

You want to upgrade the original NTC3 0.8 module to another 0.8 module gear box without any performance gain...? LOL

Just to make sure NTC3 is already a 0.8 module gearing....no need to upgrade to mugen or other 0.8 module gear box.

Unless, you are talking about Hongnor/OFNA centax with 28/29T 2nd speed pinion.....that I think it is a waste.

For free hopups, why not go to AE's website and download one or two of the pro's setups for your car (version 1 or 2?). Do this setup exactly, and find the one that works best on your particular racing surface.

Then learn to drive the car a lot before wrenching on it any further. Once you have done this, you will know if a hop up has been worth the effort or not. Hopups can't mask poor setup or average driving.

Cheers,

Mike.

I just got mine so I'll need lots of time to test and compare. The craftmanship on this is superb. This guy has great machine skills. With the elimination of the top plate, the cg is lowered. Lower cg means better bite to the ground. It's light and sturdy. I'll show you guys the chassis when i'm done putting all the parts together.

OK, so you must have one of the earlier models with the single speed. If you want to see some real improvement in your speed, then go out and get the 2 speed for sure.

If you're using the factory pipe, it will be fine for now. You'll really notice the difference with the 2 speed

R you running the RTR? Only the RTR comes with 1 speed. The factory kit comes with a 2 speed. Agree with Zoom on the two speed. But with the two speed you will need to know what size of spurs you want. Depending on your track you can go for 50-54 spurs with a 20-24 pinion or you can go for a 20-26 pinion or 48-54 spurs. the part of your loosing control upon excaleration, is your chasis new? If it is then it is not tweaked. So it might be your shocks. check if your shock oil empty or you put it too hard. The other thing maybe your diff gear, front diff setting might be too loose. Happy testing

Hey,

im Richy89 for some reason they wouldent let me post so i made a new account.

if you notice my last number on my screen name was 89. That is when i was born. my nuber now is 15. my current age.

i havent been able to post in a while so i have a few questions.

is it hard to change frome a one speed to a 2 speed??

yes it is an RTR

and how do you tweak the chassis?

i have to go check if it has oil in the shock i havent even looked yet.

And does anybody know where i can get a cheap 2 speed.
i found one for $41 on ebay and it was assembled.

I agree with what the guy said that had that long list of stuff, except stick with the 2-shoe clutch. I have not tried the 3 shoe, but I know the factory guys run the stock 2 shoe. Depending on the size and grip of your track, you may eventually want a one-way front diff, but don't get it until you can drive without hitting stuff. The gear is not forgiving when you hit stuff on-power.

Definitely get the 2-speed
