hey fellas i need some help. I am trying to get my tc3 running for the summer and for some reason i can get it started but while on the ground when i get past 30% throttle the car stalls. I can find any air leaks in it and i replaced the fuel lines. Any suggestion would be helpful thanks

been thinking of getting another NTC3 this time i kit. however i notes on the team assicated website that they discontinued it. is it still wise for me to go and get this kit ? because i dont want to spend the extra money and find out that the parts are no longer made. also i will be posting videos and pics when i can. for most part my NTC is a stock rtr plus with a few added items. such as a spektrum remote the old school version dx2 using the spektrum servos it came with. planning on upgrading to the dx4s as will. tires of foam and i have a thunder tiger bx18 engine. i wish i could say it love the little engine however i had nothing but problems with it lately. i hope to have it fix by this week.

There are still a LOT of parts available for the NTC3...Tower Hobbies, and eb*y...you should be able to find any replacement parts you need. I have 2 NTC3's (both modified RTR's ) and got a bunch of stuff from Tower just a couple months ago.

You'd trounce my NTC3 with the stock engine in your car!...unless you wanna run from home plate to first base at a ballpark, that is. Hehe.


In all seriousness my NTC3 is out of commission. I kinda borrowed the receiver and receiver battery from it to make a 1/35th scale RC tank project come to life. When it was running, though, I had almost no grip on pavement thanks to the super hard compound Tamiya rally tires I put on it. They bite into dirt like glue, but on dry pavement the thing might as well be on drift tires. Anything over quarter throttle has it scrabbling, anything over half is just slide city. An out-of-the-box RTR NTC3 would out-drag mine on tires alone.
