And the NT1 is a copycat of the MTX4...

But tbh. at first glance they look like all the others. but if you look more closely there is some nice features which is quite innovative. But yes, its not as radical as the 733...

Looks like it. By the way, it is not something new, we have seen rear shocks at the front, inverted, front springs rear, rear springs front ...

Car looks great btw.

i wonder how the V brakes will perform on a 1/10.... strong braking is one thing, have smooth brakes that does not lock up is another...

cant wait to see all the new cars slug it out at the Euro Champs....

These brakes never lock up and you can brake smooth and if needed hard!

jelayne - Yes, I see that as well. They must not have recieved the production tanks in time.... That's a bummer as the production tank fits so much better in the car with lower cg and the fuel cap is much farther forward for easier refueling...

katze - Not even close...lol... The Xray is all plastic, this car is mainly aluminum. The shocks, brakes, arms, (production) tank, wheel axles, and many other things are completely different than an Xray. I think it's funny you give Hudy credit when the rest of the world slammed him when the NT1 came out saying it was a Mugen/Kyosho copy.... As far as the brakes, if they are too much then you can simply turn down the endpoint on the transmitter or simply trim the brake pad a little. With the material that Shepherd uses they work great and last a very long time so it's not a problem.

I'm not really sure why they would invert the front shocks. I also see they are using the 1/8 blue springs which are quite hard.... I wonder why?? The set-up I used was much, much softer on my car....

Mr cyrul, is that the correct position of the brake linkage, it looks to be detached from the rollbar.

Hey Everyone,

now iīm connectet!
After 3 days of practice a small resumee:
The V10 runs very well and constant, Daniele found a set-up who allows him to take very constant laptimes.
The best is, in this 3 days nothing brokes!!! We change nothing!

For the shocks:
Daniele try a very flat Shock position, so it was easyer to turn the Shock as to cut something at the shocktower.

Hey Josh! these are not the blue V8 springs! I think these are the new Mugen springs, itīs from Danieleīs stock!

The lapcounting start tomorrow, so you all can follow at
"5colli automodellisme" (search in google) liverestream.

Hello Armin - Ahh, I understand about the springs now... I was thinking (are they crazy?!?!)...lol... I also understand about the upside down shocks - Instead of cutting the shock tower for clearance to lay the shocks down further, you just flipped it over and used a different ball end to allow for the clearance.... Interesting that he likes the shocks down so much as mine were in the 2nd from the outside hole here at Toledo and Cincinatti. Good luck this weekend!!

1evo - Yes, that is the correct position for the linkage. The roll bar has a few different holes thought it (at least the prototype that I have has 3) for the linkage alighnment. It doesn't have a little slider piece like the V8, this one is built into the roll bar.

I can't help but laugh any time someone calls something an Xray clone

Seriously name one truly original Xray car. Their electric TC was a refined Corally. The NT1 is practically interchangeable with a Mugen. The 1/12 is an AE clone but not even a 12r5 clone but a 12L4. While there is nothing terribly original about the buggy, it's probably the closest thing to an original car they have ever made. Fortunately for them, they are still good cars.

As for this Velox, it's probably the most original car out there. Sure it uses the same drive train layout as all the others but that's about it. If you don't like this layout, get a NTC3.
