I've never actually seen a Centax clutch made for another car fit in the NTC3.....but then again I've been away from onroad for a while....... The best thing to do would be to get the Kawahara push type clutch kit. It comes with a Centax designed for the NTC3, plus the motor mounts and all that.

From memory, in the NTC3 thread (rc10ntc3) theres mention from some racers who did use the Mugen Centax clutch, but i think the car needed some modifications to allow this to fit properly?....you may have to do a search thru the thread to find this info.
Theres quite a few centax clutchs that have been used on the NTC3....Barry Baker raced with the Yokomo Centax clutch in his NTC3.
GPM and K-Factory make them as well.

I had mugen clucth when i still had my tc3. It fits right in,but you need to get mugen fine pitch (0.8) pinion gears to mesh properly with tc3 spurs. And also you need to taper the plastic that touches end of the clutch..not really a big deal. I recommend get the mugen clutch...a lot cheaper compare to others. Hope this helps.

It will work. Also, the Ofna Power Clutch fits. That's what I've been running on my NTC3.

I used every available clutch combination on my NTC3 & the Mugen was the best. 21-28 .8 module gears & you need to shim the 2 speed in between the spurs. The Kuwahara & K Factory centax clutches are rubbish compared to the Mugen.
