Does anyone know if #1703 a solid axle for the tc3/tc4 fits the Nitro TC3?

....................The NTC-3 can be a basher's delight you can do alot of hop ups to it. One of my friends put one of these diff gear in his NTC-3 because the plastic unit kept stripping , he had a .18TZ in his TC-3 http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/1811159...limghlpsr=true

You can try to make it fit, but the Ntc3 spool (#1704) is what you should be looking for.........

too excited..

this exhaust needs to hurry up and get here.. could be another week or two.

otherwise i got the new transmitter/reciever. hooked it up, tested servos
got my starter box set up.
FINALLY got the engine off (no drilling required.. just a nicer wrench)
pics of the engine following this post hopefully.
got air filters for both cars
got the temp gun, and glow starter.

i am ALMOST there. now i just need some batteries and chargers (and this dang exhaust) then i'll be bashing it up.

looking into this charger. has anyone used it or heard anything good/bad about it?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/310910377330...84.m1423.l2649

also considering a charger for "AA"s

http://www.ebay.com/itm/300984154083...84.m1423.l2649
this one is only 10$, and then some lithium rechargeables for the flysky transmitter. or, should i try to get the charging cord for the transmitter itself, and eliminate need for the "AA" charger?

nitro TC3 - looking for all advice-image.jpg

Finallyyyyy.

Got it running!! New tank is amazing, the old one wasnt a tight seal. Shout out to nitrohead for that!

Got the exhaust, and everything i need except the LHS failed to tell me the charger i purchased didnt come with the proper connector for the battery he sold me

But i started it right up and she sounds good!! Engine has great compression. Front end needs aligned bad though.. All this waiting finally paid off when i could smell the nitro burnin!

ok, anyone please feel free to refresh my memory on carb tuning..

the low speed needle is the verticle screw, correct?
the high speed on the end, and idle on the side next to the block?

loosening the lsn will make the engine more rich? correct?

just want to be sure BEFORE i ruin an engine, as opposed to after. lol

High speed is the one with the fuel line at its base idle speed is the closest to block in your pictures and the low speed is the one in the end of the slide where your linkage attaches

you can pick up an integey spec setup station for 60 bux that will help you get the front end aligned incase you are having issue with it.
