I use 3 quarter or 4 dimes that is 5.5mm and if you have the adjustable shocks that is the easy way. becareful of tweak though.

Actually your drop is controlled by a grub screw located in each shock arm. Ajusting you shocks only controls ride hieght and drop requiers one of these.

As you can see there are many to choose from.

this is a good thread here and i can add this stuff
issues i have had with my ntc3. the earlier one with the pivot suspesion all the way around, the rtr one
wheel bearings seemed to wear out pretty fast. made the engine hot as it had a lot of extra drag to overcome
front diff case is easy to break. rd logics makes a metal one. i used just the metal top half
adding the rear sway bar really made it handle in a way i found easier to drive fast
using the option clutch springs made a world of difference. takes off way faster
this car rules i raced it a few times and have had a blast

raptordd that is an electric tc3 it doesn't excite us nitro racers over here. lol

post that in the electric forum and I bet you will get a ton fo replys.

Conman glad to hear about your success with your ntc3. Wait till you eventually turn it into a factory team ride and slap a real motor in it such as the.............................o.s 18tz turbo might i add.

I hope they come out with another nitro touring as i will be the first to buy it.


A ready to drop in motor would be a .18cvr or the .18tz depending on if you are racing or not if you are get the o.s.12 tz
