well what are they doing to their rubber to make them different? Why do nitro shoes feel and handle totally different than ellegi's?

Even IF all the companies are using the same rubber the end result that gets to the consumer is different - I've tried enough different foams to be very certain of that much at least. 99% of foams available are not the same and differ in more than the wheel.

Here are some more intresting facts from reliable source about the new car :
  • Lower Engine Mounts
  • Smaller Flywheel
  • Only interchangble part from MTX-2 is front swaybar (according to source)
  • All tyres that fit the MTX-2 will work with the MTX-3 (difference is 2mm offset on wheel hub

Not sure about the third point, the arms and some other stuff looks awfully similar.

Racing4Evo- Tax wouldn't be more than $12 and priority mail (2-3 day) shipping for a kit is about $10... So you stand to make roughly $50. Sounds like a ripoff to me! Just face it, your making it all up anyways.... You don't have to lie to make friends!

Yeah, that's right, I'm making this all up. Is that why I furnished the hobby shop's name and location? I'm sure someone in socal looking for a cheap NTC3 will be very happy about the info I just gave out. Like I said before, this is not some favor. I think that should explain the cost to you be it ripoff or not.

too many peeps have NTC3's anyways.... I hate seeing just a platoon of the same car everywhere I go. I guess that's why I ended up buying a V1RR, aside from the fact that its a great car, not too many people have them. V1rr's are around (So Cal) but there not as omnipresent as NTC3's. I'm bracing myself though too see butt loads of MTX-3's around sooner than later... , but that's cool, whateva is cleva. I'm sure it will be an excellent car.

At my track, I swear, there has to be about 25 tc3's. that 50% of our turnout (on good days). At least you don't have to worry about replacement parts

Its kind of funny, cause my friend has 5 different tc3 fuel tanks .

But now we're getting the ntc3 backlash . There seems to be less and less. And their owners find more and more quirks. Its a good competition car, but.....

Why 5 fuel tanks?

BTW, there's always one or two NTC3's in the top five in Stock and Mod. They are excellent cars. Just don't crash though.

Talking

My friend is weird that way. plus he had two that leaked, but still has them though he did nothing to them and then he had his 'scientific project' tc3 tank. It has some interesting things on it

I was going to get a TC3, I was looking at getting Jimmy's, but he sold it the day after the state champs. Then my dad, just now, bought me a used mtx2 that bobby said was from reynold. hopefully, I can be a bit better now , we'll see.
