I'll try it on my backup car and let you know what I think next Sunday.
Remember that I drive like an electric racer...smooth on the throttle.

I'm interested to know what you think though. I only know of one other driver that has tried it so far (although a previous version).

You may be limited on downloading the PDF if you have a personal firewall, or a hardware firewall. You could try printing out the web page of the setup sheet though. Let me know if you still can't get a copy and I'll email the PDF to you.

, the 9550 would work, but the 9451 for steering is a better choice.

Me and a freind have had 9550 in nitro cars and both had several failures seems they dont like the vibrations
Had them in electric cars no problems
But the 9541 is a good reliable servo
Personaly I like the sanwa VB or VX

Today is a good day, I have 2 hours time to test drive NT1 ( after two weeks of waiting a free time ).

My mechanic loosen the centax clutch ( around 0.8mm with a silver mugen super hard spring )

My mechanic loosen the 2speed clutch ...... He must set it three times to get the correct shifting point.

And finallly, vroom...... vrooomm...... for 4 tanks.

Here is my impression driving NT1 ( using basic setup with original parts ) :

The car is very nice to drive...... very smooth drivetrain, acceleration is awesome, can brake like a real man, noticeably understeering on power ( cannot push too hot while exiting S corners ), car turn very quick at corner entry with slight oversteering ( I think it's dirty track issue ).

It is my first time to have a new car that didn't scracth or even kiss the side wall. No scratches at all !!! ..... Unlike my previous cars: MTX3, MTX4, MRX4R, they must kiss the side wall couple of times during their maiden run.

I think I'm ready for the big event : DTM race on 4th and 5th of August.

aahhhh...... a good happy day today.

yeah that setup sheet is odd, the download pdf link is broken as well. it points to a xb8 link, but if you change it to the link below you can get the actual pdf.

Most of the small starter boxes work well, Serpent. Mugen, the team Magic one. They are all light and compact. Personaly, I am using the Mugen one because I had it left over from when I was running an MTX4.

Hey, good on you man !!!

I'm using basic kit setup except :

1. longer screws ...... I use 2mm longer screws everywhere that's fit.
2. shock absorbers + springs ...... I use Mugen MTX4 shock absorbers ( 2 holes front, 1 hole rear ) + mugen's light blue springs ( 1.7 )
3. alluminium wheel hex + 0.75 all around
4. mugen super hard spring (silver) for centax clutch, set to 0.8mm tightness
( you don't have to copy mine, especially #1 .... it makes my car stiff and heavy ).

BTW, xray spare parts are really expensive compare to mugen ..... I have calculate the cost of accumulating spare parts all together exceed the price of new car, so I bought 2 kits, 1 for car, 1 for spare parts.

The car itself is very nice to drive : the drive train is super smooth, braking is awesome ( no kidding ), 2 speed engangement is like real sport cars, and NT1 is totally a handsome car. I'm glad to own it.

This week I have big race, I'm going to test NT1 for that.
