We (The-Border.com) will receive our batch tomorrow (for those in different timezones: Friday December 12th) and it will be quite limited.
Shipping is worldwide, delivery to the US in about 5-8 days according to USPS.

Did anyone notice this:

"A set of option parts worth of 370Eur without VAT are included together with a full standard NT1 kit in this Limited Edition deal. Available only in a small quantity and only while the stock lasts so make sure not to miss this great opportunity."

So that means, it's a full 2014 kit PLUS all those extra parts?? So I will get 2 chassis included? Standard one and new one???

Nowhere does it say a 2014 kit + 2015 kit.

As far as I understand: it's the 2014 kit + the extra parts.
That combination makes it a '2015' kit.
If you check the SKU in the list, that's the SKU of the 2014 kit.

#330010 XRAY NT1 World Champion edition includes:

330009 - XRAY NT1 - full kit with all parts
331101 - Chassis 4mm Swiss 7075 T6
331180 - Brass Chassis Weight Front 25g
331190 - Graphite Chassis Insert Front
331191 - Graphite Chassis Insert Rear
331201 - Wide Bumper
331215 - Graphite Upper Holder for Bumper
331280 - Chassis Weight Holders

332012 - Bulkhead Front Right - Hard
332022 - Bulkhead Front Left - Hard
333012 - Bulkhead Rear Right - Hard
333022 - Bulkhead Rear Left - Hard
333061 - Graphite Roll-center Bridge
333401 - Rear Adjustable Anti-roll Bar
334061-O - Alu Brake Post Arm Swiss 7075 T6 Orange
335710 - Front Middle Shaft Hudy Spring Steel™
335720 - Front Middle Shaft Holder

336040 - Graphite Receiver Bracket
336080 - Graphite Personal Transpoder Bracket 336231-O - Alu Radio Plate Mounts Swiss 7075 T6 Orange
330009 is the SKU of the NT1 2014 Specs. So that is the car that is included, and you can see the option parts that are included beneath it.

All of that together has been named the "2015 Specs" by Xray. So no new car, just an edition with lots and lots of spare parts included, so still very much worth it.

Absolutely, that's why I'm even buying the kit

Now ssshhhhhh so I get one before they are gone :P

I already emailed A Main for delivery date and to do a pre-order, hopefully they can match $604.19 shipped or better.

So it will come with two seperate chassis plates, the original 2014 and the new one.

Perfect, because my original nt1 chassis is bent and I was about to buy another.

But wait, I just realized, my NT1 is a 2013, can I swap the 2013 chassis plate for a 2014 chassis plate??

About ~$582 dollars (depending on PayPal) shipped from The-Border and ships tomorrow (shipping to US takes about 5-8 days from The Netherlands).

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. I will be making my purchase tomorrow or Saturday.

Man you guys have a crazy VAT there! BTW, I think PayPal is only 2%.

21% percent, welcome to the EU ;-) (specifically The Netherlands, most other countries are lower)

I'll let you in on a secret: we think the same about the US
Luckily you don't have to pay our VAT so that's interesting with the current $/€ price.

It comes with the 14' chassis and the option 4mm chassis not a newer chassis.

And you can use the 14' chassis on your 13' but you'll need the need middle layshaft mount and new battery mounting plate hardware since that changed on the 14' chassis. You could use the 4mm chassis on your 13' without issue but if you run on a low traction track it wouldn't be ideal.

Hello Alex,

We don't have the 2015 spec in our system yet to order, so unfortunately, I do not have a definite ETA yet.

Sincerely,

My order has been placed with the-border. Thought it would be at least a hundred more because I'm buying from Europe+shipping but I guess not having to pay that VAT really helped.

In what ways would you speculate it may differ from this 2015 World Championship Edition? Worth waiting for or is this a better deal with all of the included upgrade parts?

No idea about the 2015. I have a 2014 and I have a Pro, most of the parts that come with the WCE came with the Pro apart from the 4mm chassis. I don't run on high grip tracks so I can see it being of any benefit to me. Every one will be different and they have to decide what is best for them. Is a very good deal if you still get standard 2014 as well.

I'm guessing there's not going to be a 2015 edition: they've got the world championship title for 2 years, no need to release a new car, I think this is going to be it for 2015 and perhaps later in 2015 a 2016 edition, in like a year.

- Only one piece of the NT1 2015 World Champion Edition left to be shipped today @ The-Border!
