Default Nasty 1/10 scale on-road cars using .21 or larger engines....come inside

I am a huge fan for the 1/10 scale cars using .21 or larger engines and was wondering who all besides the Miami guys and nitrohead have built them or have them? I love the challenge of getting the car to handle a full throttle take off and harness the full power under full throttle.

I found that the NTC3 was a great challenge with fitting 1/8 scale tires on it and then the exhaust was a challenge as well as the plastic ring/pinion gears which I later found out a steel gear solution for that. I then looked into the OFNA CD3 which has the center design transmission and that gave me alot better alternatives for the exhaust than the rear trans design of the NTC3 and OFNA LD3 cars. So as of right now, I have 4 OFNA CD3 cars.......one with a .21 Kangaroo in it, one with a RBmodded 3.3, one with a RBmodded RB .15 and one brand new spare car as a back-up.

What do you guys have or know of anyone that has built 1/10 scale version big block cars? Any pics?

Here's my CD3 with the Kangaroo in it.

bigwill, now that is what I am talking about. Why change the engine when you haven't ran it yet though? Are those supposedly fast engines or just truck engines?

I too have the wolfpack radicals adapters and man have they saved me some headace. Without the use of the large 1/8 scale tires, there's no way that I could get the car(s) to stay hooked up at all. I also wouldn't mind building a belt driven car but there's no way for me to shorten the control arms to bring the tires in further to fit under a 235mm body. Are you making your own body for yours?

You would have to contact wolfpackradicals.com for the adapters.

LOL. I built that NTC3 for him, it actually used to be mine......(Calvin is his name). He called me last night while you guys were out there racing.

This is the old NTC3 that I built and sold to the B&E teammates.

Sorry for going O/T, but which adapters are needed? Would it be a good idea to just get "all adapters" or a specific set? Would those adapters work on my Duratrax Street Force? I would assume yes, but would like to make sure. The link that they provide to purchase their items doesn't seem to have their items...do you know of another place?

To everyone that is trying to find the wolfpack stuff....good luck, it took me almost a year to find all the stuff for my super nitro, and i am still looking for a trans, but if you can contact wolf directly he will sell you some of the stuff he has left. but there isn't that much to be honest

Yeah I heard that wolfpack was not doing too much of any business anymore so if you can get in touch with him, that would be good for you. I know of way too many machine shops around that can easily duplicate those adapters so that is what I am going to get next as a few spares wouldn't hurt to have.

I have run the 30vg for testing purposes and i think its just to much power, anything over 1/4 throttle and all 4 of the foams break lose, doesn't matter what speed i am at. As for the body i am still running a 235mm body, and yes the tires stick outside of the body in the rear, but since this car will be only drag racing for right now its not a big issue to me, but i am working on trying to get a 1/8 scale body to fit.

Yeah when I was talking to Calvin, I could hear you running the .18 TZ as I asked him what was in the background. He said it was a stock .18 running around. They saw the NTC3 and called me to buy it. I sold it and have even worked on it since then as well making a few parts fit for them. That car is definately fast especially with the engine that they are using with it. You are Sean right? I talked to Calvin a few minutes ago.

bigwill, making some of those adapters would definately be the bomb. There aren't many people doing such a thing as we are but I am sure you can sell a few. Without the body covering the tires, you are right in having a body made to fit. I just couldn't see a car without a body to fit over those tires. I am surprised at the .30 being too much power as well but I haven't tried anything bigger than a .21 yet either.

Brent, the biggest problem with the .30vg is the torque. a stock .30vg was fine, but when i put the modded one on its just to much for 132ft. I am thinking about going with a modded .21 nova

Hey, you guys are completely nuts for putting those oversized engines in those cars. Why would anyone bother putting anything bigger than a 15 into a car. If the companies that made those car thought it would be a great idea to mount anything besides a 15 in them, then they would have done it. All you guys are looking for is to tear up stuff in a perfectly good car. Speed isnt everything you know. There are some of us that actually like to race on tracks, so why put a motor like that in a car? I'd bet that if you ran your car and my car on a track, then I would beat you all day. 21 and bigger motors are supposed to be in trucks and true 8th scale cars, not 1/10 scalers.

Oh wait,thats all stuff I'd heard from people when I started doing that.

Great looking cars you all. Im loving those bodies as well. Keep up the good work and keep me posted on some of those speeds.

LMAO! At first I was getting angry thinking that you were being a smart azz but then I did notice it was a Miami guy.....lol. I really enjoy the challenge with getting the small wheelbase cars to hook up and run FAST. Sure we all know how well they run in 1/8 scale but the real challenge is in a 1/10. Heck you and that twin RB TM928 car aint no joke either but I do really like it.

bigwill, man you gotta be yourself and as what was posted before, I too got the why's and it won't work and yada, yada, yadas but after doing it myself, the car handles and runs very good. There's a guy on here that goes by Nitrohead3500 and he was kinda skeptical at first doing a big block in his NTC3 but after seeing a video of mine, he put one in his and saw for himself that it can work out just fine. This thread just may inspire someone else that has been told different too.
