The car is easy to maintain and work on, the drive train is free handles like it is on rails like I said parts are available everywhere. AE has great support you good ask for more. This not my only AE car I have 2 NTC3, 2 TC3, T3, GT and a 12th scale L3 all of them have been good.

Well, since I've driven it....I will comment on it. IT's WEAK, no other term to use for it. Great car if you NEVER run into ANYTHING! It's frustrating to start with as a beginner car.

Having the Mugen, building it now, it's FAR better build. Everthing is thicker and tougher than the NTC3.

Wouldn't consider much else besides the Mugen!!!

I can't comment on any other car but the NTC3 and it has been a really good car for me. Parts availablity is something you should consider.

So the Mugen is the dialed car?

Does it have a ball diff in the back? or is it still use the oil?

thanx

plus mugens dont break, if every shop has the parts for your car then why? does that car break alot, probably.

the ntc3 has been out for so log shouldnt it be the most popular and most stocked in terms of parts?

look at mugen serpent and trinity they are always looking for another improvement to make thier car the best, i think the tc3 has been out about 4 years or more, correct me if i am wrong.

Anyway save yourself some heartache and talk to your guys at your track and see what they run then get the car they have. Everyone has their favorite car and you will get a million and one answer on this forum but the best help you can get is at your local track. Save yourself time and money and talk to the guys you race with.

The V2 rear suspension was only released in March '04 for the NTC3. The diff gears that were an issue(black ones) were updated as a running change. The Factory Team edition came out in March as well. Just because they don't rename the model, doesn't mean it hasn't improved.

I'm sure if this was Serpent it would have been called the 716 by now
