What shore tires f/r, any split, and what type of track surface are you guys running on? This past weekend I put the 26t on, but engine problems kept me from being able to focus on chassis setup. As a rookie, I would love to not have to deal with tire splits.

Using the 26t pulley makes the front tires spin slower than with the 25t, so with the 26 pully the rear tires are actually spinning faster than the fronts, (more over drive) than with the 25t, which is why with the 25t you run a 2mm difference in tire diameter and with the 26 your supposed to run a 1.5mm difference. So with the 26t you might have felt more turn in and more corner exit depending on your driving style

I will be a rookie at gas next season...What are tire splits? Is it when you run a different shore tire front and rear?

It's when you run a different size tire in the rear than the front. So when someone says 2mm split there running there tire's in the rear 2mm bigger in diameter than the front.

Just to add to this, split also pertains to overdrive, underdrive and dealing with uneven tire wear between front and rear tires.

What do you expect to gain from upgrading your car?

A lot of times, it's really just about finding the right setup with your existing car. The 4R isn't that much different from the 4. If you think you've exhausted all your setup options with the 4, then maybe you should try a different car. If not, you may want to try different setups first. The ability to identify and correct setup deficiencies plays a big role in your success with any particular car.

On a personal level, one car may suit your setup and driving skills more than another. Unfortunately, you won't know that until you buy the other car.

Hope this helps...

HT Westminster has some springs in stock. Try the 26 tooth side pulley to run 1:1 to take that out of the equation for a while. What tires are you running?

Right now I'm running 38f 40r Nitro Shoes. I need to check HT's stock. I didn't even look this past weekend...

Yeh that 25 tooth would make it spin faster, It makes the car heaps better so thats all that matters!!
About the NT1 or MTX 4R. It really depends what best parts access you have. They are both awesome cars, i have only ever driven a VoneRRR and an NT1 so i cant tell you how i think it feels compard to the MTX 4R. But i think it is smoother and easier to drive than the VoneRRR. Good Luck...

Yeah true, maybe i'm better off keeping what i've got and wait til an mtx-5 comes out. Just after something "new" , you know new cars always handle better nice new bearings etc ...

Maybe just buy a new MTX4-R....

There is 1 more advantage if you stay with 1 brand, spare parts...
A lot of them you can use on your new car as well......

Besides the 4mm chassis, multidiff and different springs, what other options would you guys recommend or have tried on the NT1?

For most of these options it just matters where your racing, they don't neccesarilly(spelling) make the car better, they are just different tuning options to further dial your car with. Other than what you've mentioned I'd invest in a rear adjustable sway bar, which I'm running now and also front cvd's, which I'm also running. Although I havn't had any issues with the stock ones, aluminum hexes are a plus too.
