that cars not too popular, so i have no doubt that itll be hard to find parts, did you try getting it directly from thunder tiger? you might want to give them a call too, and see who's their distributor for Australia

The car is much more popular in Europe so you may have more luck ordering parts from there. [link=http://www.modelsport.co.uk/]Modelsport[/link] carry a large range of spares & hopups, and although it'd be costly, they do ship to Australia.

Here's my TS-4 anyway

You require part PD0868, which is listed as "installation accessory". It contains the servo mounts as well as a few other bits and pieces.

I'm suprised they don't include it with the aluminium radio plate to be honest...

I don't know of any aftermarket heads that will fit, however the engines used in NTC3s are made by Thunder Tiger (they are direct copies of TT engines internally) so if you can find an AE .12 head that should fit perfectly.

Also is it worth to put a high flow k&n filter on with a cooling fan for the head? The car is used for drifting and for street fun

K&N air filters aren't designed for these small nitro powerplants (although they are often marketed as such) and will reduce the life of the engine as a result - the cause being that they allow finer particles through which oiled foam filters trap. If you're after something a bit better than the stock filter look for a slightly larger foam filter, ideally with two elements

You shouldn't need a cooling fan, a properly tuned engine with adequate ventilation (2in diameter holes in both the front and rear windows) shouldn't overheat. As you're drifting the car it may also help to remove part of the side windows so that air is forced over the cooling head when the car is sideways...

motorsaver airfilters are one of the best you can buy, and they are worth it. they are big but get tons of air into the engine

It's possibly the worst photo ever, but here it is anyway. It includes 5 cable ties, antenna tube, transponder mount, 8 front roll pin spacers, antenna mount and servo mounts.

The mounts bolt to the flat underside of the radio plate, and then you secure the servo to the mounts. Unless your alloy plate is different in some way to the CF one i have? Have a pic of it?
