Hadn't even thought of that. I've got one stashed away in the bat cave too.

do you need to use a regulator when using a lipo with the spektrum receiver?

Overall, how is the handling of the car affected with lipos? What would you guys running lipos list as the top positives from installing the lipos, and negatives if any?

I've been considering the lipos, and I'm getting ready to change out my servos (from JR 9000S steering/Air358 throt) going to KO 2413 low profile servo, and possibly go to lipo while I'm at it.

The advantages of a LiPo receiver pack are reduced weight & lower profile allowing you to lower your fuel tank up to 4mm.

The downside are the required voltage regulator(if you want your servos to last), less durable cell casing and illegal to use @ roar events.

The best solution is to use a 5cell AAA pack since it gives you all the benefits of of the LiPo pack with none of the downside.

I am not familiar with the 2413 servo but make sure you use an analog servo for your throttle linkage. The digitals tend to burn up fets under braking.

I though lipos are now legal at roar events. A lot of people are using them, including myself, at roar events with no problems.

Almost positive that lipos are legal to power the receiver/servos in gas powered cars. They are not legal to power the electric motor in electric classes.

I looked through the ROAR rule book and did not find any battery restrictions for nitro cars.

I stand corrected, the proposal I ready was amended to electric classes only in the final ruling.

The AAA pack is still the way to go, its cheaper, and still reduces the weight and allows you to drop the tank the same 4mm.

One other advantage of the AAA pack is that the 2 cells positioned on the left side of the chassis help correct the left/right weight balance reducing the amount of weights needed.

XRAY/HUDY has just released pinion gear wrenches and a clutch tool for the NT1.

182010 is a HUDY clutch multi-tool - it features a flywheel wrench, clutch gap measuring tool, and IMO a clever addition that holds the NT1 clutch bell while you tighten the pinion gears.
(this is the same tool shown in the NT1 manual, but the CAD drawing in the manual did not feature the part that holds the clutch bell )

339901 is a set of 2 XRAY composite pinion gear wrenches.
