    well I don't know off hand and I won't be able to get ahold of him tell Saturday since he works in the morning and I work the rest of the day. How long ago did they come out? I belive he got his maybe a few months ago.

    try gearing it higher.maybe his tc3 had a higher gear ratio.put a larger pinion gaer on it and see that helps

    you can also adjust the spring tention on your suspension more or less until more of the tire contacts the ground.you can do that by eye.

    I have had great success with the setup in the back of the NTC3 manual..Just follow it and you will be fine..Parking lot or track it works fine for me..If you have trouble spinning out entering a corner I learned that front springs that are too soft will allow too much weight transfer to the front making the rear loose..

    If you have a front one-way installed in your car then applying the brakes will cause your car to spin out virtually every time. Replace the front one-way with a diff and you'll solve your problem.

    i would be amazed if Associated would have made the Tc3 with out a diff up front.

    i dout thats his problem.but if it is.i would upgrade the whole car to a Factory Team Car.if i owned it.

    well it's kinda hard to shift my batt pack on my nitro, since I use a hump pack.

    maybe you need to lengthen the wire to find a better place for your Rx(reciever) Batt Pack but next to the Rx should be fine.

    Doesn't the FT NTC3 come with a front one-way?I ran a front one-way and solid rear axle and I loved it..It drove really good after I got the hang of it.Takes some time getting used to it..
