Traxxas uses two different types of shafts depending on what type of model the motor is going to be used in. Follow the Traxxas rep's instructions on the install. Remember that the Traxxas shaft is alittle larger in diameter then normal sg sytle shafts... Follow there Rep's instructions and I'm sure your lhs can lend you a helping hand as well..

no offense taken just wanted to be clear as to why so many questions. not new to r/c just nitro. actually, i did have one other nitro car. a Kyosho Assault. that was a long time ago. i was hesitant to get a nitro because i remembered how much trouble it was just trying to start that piece of ... nitro engines have clearly come a long way since then. i bought my ntc3 used,it had not been run in months, i put fuel in it and put it on a starter box and the engine lit up instantly.
on the other hand i am not sure i am going to repower with a 2.5 just yet. i am doing plenty of damge with just a .12 the main reason is that i am not used to having to check for things vibrating loose after each run. this time it was the motor mounts and i striped some gears. oh well. i have to say i have been bitten by the nitro bug and i am done with electric. jjust have to stock up with ALOT of spare parts

i couldnt resist- i figured if i was going to stuff a trx 2.5 in a TC3 i might as well start new-so went and bought a brand new rear exhaust NTC3 yesterday i am not sure if i am going to use the 2.5 or the new o.s.18 cv. but whatever engine i put in, its going to be big!

The .18 is a CVR and will be insane. Remember, this engine is side exhaust.

No, not really.... Guess what?? I saved the thread that has the details on how to install the TRX2.5 in the NTC3... Here's the link to the thread... Good luck.

http://monster.traxxas.com/showthrea...hreadid=141403

There was a few more posts on other threads there, but I can't locate them... The info should point you in the right direction.. Only took me about 1 hour to put the TRX2.5 into the NTC3

PS... You only need one exhaust gasket and not 2 like I posted in the thread and you can use the MIP clutch kit or your can use the Team Assoicated 2 shoe clutch kit..
