I know everybody will hat this question becasue i always hate it when i read questions like this, but how does the gt4 r compare to a ntc3?

I dont want to be throwing belts left and right. I am used to shaft drive since i had the rs4 3 ss before and i loved it. Should it be what determines what car i get?

Again sorry for asking this kind of question, but i am in between the 2. I like the shaft of the tc3 but i like the hopups of the gt4r.

Please help out.

thx

I don't know how it compares to a TC3 but the GT4 takes slips from the HPI RS4 3 RTR, HPI RS4 3 Type SS, and Traxxas Nitro 4-Tec...blows them all away off the line and full blown acceleration...braking isn't the best but it's very good...

The NTC3 has a slight edge in handling compared to the GT4 Pro. I got the chance to drive a relatively stock NTC3 and it handles great out of the box. GT4R drives much different because of the diff setup and belt drive. Unless you got a front one way and solid rear axle for the NTC3, then you can compare it to the R.

I myself want a NTC3 but I'll settle until the Factory Team version comes out so I can race sedan. Until then, I will be running my GT4R in outlaw class.

I have found that if you sand down the brake pads you can get better feel out of your brake. I have mine setup to where it holds the car still at idle. Other than that I dont use much brake. It just slows you down anyway. If you are running in a parking lot I would use 50 or 60 weight oil with some medium firm sprinds in the front and firm in the rear. But that is just me.

The NTC3 runs well but the car is not well designed. Everybody tried it at my club and then everybody sold their NTC3 after one month. It is not designed as good as some nitro cars like the Yokomo, or the Mugen. If you hit something in the front of your car then you break the front of your car. It Seems that the bumper is not very good. And the car is expensive as you have to change the thank, and add some hop up. I run a YOK GT-4 and I am very satisfied (except that not every shop have the parts). Mugen are very good !!

Anyone know anything about the new Yokomo shocks? They look the same excepts for a screw on cap at the bottom for easier replacement of the o-rings.

Cant see any reason why I would want to buy them.

There are some performance enhancing options that I would like to see, but Yokomo don't seem very interested about them.

PRO RS4

You have aluminium shock towers and the aluminium shock tower braces! Don't you think thats a little overkill?

It certainly wont move.

Default New Shocks

The new shocks are basically like the Tamiya shocks. They are a bit smoother and are much easier to rebuild.

I have a quick question about the 2-speed. Does anyone know if you can get a Centax Cluch to work with the GT-4 2-speed.
