I had my 2 gear set to early at the main this weekend , changed after 2 metres , and still the Engine pulled Hard at Low rpm.
good points John !!!

I already talked with my Reds Regional dealer... the reds price with pipe is less than a nova virtus without pipe here !!!

I have to think about it ...

Hi there.

I am intending to order my nt1 2014 as well as some spares. However, unable to locate the 2014 manual online.

Can anyone tell me if the arms, knuckles, uprights, belts, spurs, pulleys, pinions, one way adaptor (clutch system), and 2 speed housing are the same between the 2013 and 2014 versions of the NT1?

any option parts that I should consider?

thanks in advance.

sam

Default Short (2013) or long (2014) shocks

Hi

What do you think about the difference in witch to use in what conditions? We race with free tyres,no additive. My opinion is to use the short ones. We raced this weekend and the car was just better balanced on the short ones

Hello, except the 2-speed housing all your mentioned parts stayed the same.

From Xray's press release for the RX8 they said Low Profile shocks worked well in high grip small diameter tyres. With new controlled tyres at a lot of events the longer shocks worked better.

I take it the shaft is now shorter with the new mid mount on the 2014 spec car. Does it come with a light weight shaft or standard?

Default Clutch

Anyone having problems with the spring of the clutch? Its 10mm long and if I adjust it to have 0,7mm preload the spring is fully compressed and all the coils tusch each other. Its like the spring is to long or the tread nut is to short. Advise please. We all use other spring in Denmark
