Yep... other options would be to get a newer car that has parts support and people can assist with setup help.

Or if you really want to persist with the Nitro TC3 get a different rear exhaust motor (Not Picco based) like an OS or a Novarossi.

A Main Hobbies have a Novarossi 353 at a good price at the moment, or get a OS from Tower hobbies.

Once you have the right ofna collet, everything else fits with shimming....

i just dont want to buy an new engine, my red dot was briefly used and has been stored for the past few months. i have the ofna collet and the shim kit but the flange bearing inside diameter is to small to fit over the SG shaft.

the bearings for the tc3 clutch bell should be 5x10 unflanged, 5x9 flanged. all sg cranks are the same dimension.

Cool

Bearings not fitting is new to me ! All my clutch Bearings seem to fit nicely in my jlr . 12 tuned... Good luck with it,, but I think a new clutch bearing kit might do the trick......
