Anybody have/know of a good parking lot track setup? The track surface is fairly smooth and sprayed with sugar water. I've never raced on anything else so I don't know how it compares in traction to others. Its of decent size with the fast guys doing 20 second laps.

thanks in advance....

Thanks. Looks good to me. I'm learning setup, but it can be a bit complicated sometimes. I need more track time to sort all this stuff out.

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.
wow!!!heavy prep down there dtm cup..to calculate spareparts litdat ofcoz expenxive bro..but why too many parts do you need for this nt1?your mugen ofcoz cheaper part coz after a race,arms specially getting loose here and there,but not for nt1..even the gearing..i think the most common major parts you should keep is just centax spring,clutch shoe,some spurs,pulleys and belts,the rest few maybe arms and knuckle which still i feel durable enuff..but goin big race like dtm,2kits spare would be a very TQ advantage...

c u der..

Do you have the spring set? You might want to start with the Violet and Light Purple spring sets and play around with those. The Multi-diff is killer too.

Personaly I like the sanwa VB or VX
I´m driving the Kopropo 2413 on throttle and steering. Works great! And you also loose about 20g compared to standard servos.

Hey guys. Went for some Testing on the weekend, i found something very interesting!! I was on a fairly frippy technical track, running 40 Rears ad 38 Fronts. I had Light Purple rear springs (35 Pound), Purple Front springs (30 Pound) I had heaps of off-power steering, heaps of rear end grip but was just lacking some on power steering (like a lot of us). At that stage i was running a 26 tooth side pulley. Went to a 26 tooth, went back out and the car totally transformed itself! Kept its awesome steering off power and just added heaps of steering on-power. In the end i actually ended up adding some front droop to give it a bit more rear-end grip on-power, after that the car was a weapon. Hope this helps

I'm sure he meant '...to a 25...'.

I had the same experience when switching from a 26t as well.

I've been looking to get the spring set. Any suggestions on where to buy it? I haven't been able to find it in stock. I like the idea of the Multi-diff too, but I'm a poor student for two more semesters so its one or the other.....

Yeh sorry guys, i actually switched from a 25 tooth to a 26 tooth. I figured this allowed the front wheels to turn faster giving them more grip, This is the first time i havn't ran overdrive, on my Touring Cars i have always ran overdrive.....well the cars awesome now so mabye some try it someday, hey it worked for me!

Regards, Ryan

Now thats interesting. My on track experience was opposite. However, your description makes sense. I'll have to try the 26t again.

If I remember correctly the 25t gives a 1.04:1 front overdrive and the 26t is 1:1. I'm trying to figure this all out though.
