Hi guys, just wondering, any one here competes with your NTC3+ or NTC3? What type of tires do you use, foam or rubber? Have you won any prize?
Here in my town there's a RTR category, so I plan to run with my tc3+ soon, maybe I'll beat some duratrax's GP2 easily hehehe

and does any one here know the specifications of the .15x engine that comes in the NTC3+? Is it better than the one that cames in the GP2?

No I don't think so people just are not having any problems with there wonderful nitro tc3's so they have no need to post any questions. lol

Unlike the smartech thread.

mmm... i would agree with you but i checked me servo and its working find and even when the car is off and i move the rear wheels the front moves left and right so it has to be hitting something.

The new electric prototype that is belt drive is electric and called the tc5 and there is one picture of it on rc caraction. Also if youlook somewhere in the caraction book you can see all the tracks in cali.

Hey i have a question, I have a TC3+ basicly stock with the carbon upgrade. I was playing with it in the parking lot, and whenever I would hit second gear, the car would just spin out. I also found out what you guys were talking about with the crapy stock tires, My rear tires are shreaded. Any help would be great. This is my first RC car beside a walmart one. TIA

if your rear tires are shreaded that maybe the problem!

It might be out of tweak. Meaning the tires are not push the same weight on the road surface. So when you turn the car the rear torque is more on one side than the other. causing spin outs.

find some one with a tweak station and it should help

I have a NTC3 that does not shift. I bought the car used, but I have completely rebuilt and cleaned the car from the ground up. (I have been racing gas and electric cars for 20 years.) I have adjusted the transmission clutch shoes exactly to AE's instructions and I have backed the screws out as much as 4 turns to no avail. I am using a freshly "blueprinted", ported, and polished OS .12tr. Any suggestions?

Thanks
