Default .21 NTC3

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone would be intrested in a .21 nitro engine conversion for the NTC3? I want to know if people will accully buy them before I spend money making them.

Let me know.
-Joe

It is easier to just put a OS TZ .18 in instead. You are gonna have a hard enough time getting the car to hook up with that motor . I had a .21 Hyper -8 port in my nitro TC-3 and all it did was spin out.

I believe the adage "You can never have too much power" might ultimately be defeated in this scenario. I figure you'd just nuke the tranny before you even got a lap in, and it'd handle like crap with that kind of extra weight above the center of gravity.

Are you saying you've already done it?

There's a good reason why no one has a shaft drive 8th scale.

Putting .21's in 1/10 tcs is common-place in the Chicagoland area. There is a group of run what you brung style drag racers that have been doing that for years. For the most part, the trannies hold up pretty well. Easiest conversion I have done was LD3 rtr. .21's drop in with no conversion necessary. Just add buggy header.

Most likely. I was just commenting that 8th scale has never seen a competition level 8th scale that is shaft drive. I'm sure associated tried to do it and just plain gave up.

I noticed no torque steer issues with the conversions I have done. I think that belt drive is the way to go for 1/8 because the components (especially fuel tank) can be situated for best balance.
