when I build a 2 speed, I take an X acto knife and LIGHTLY bevel the edges of the shoes.....I find the edges of the shoes always have high spots causing the shoes to wear in uneven.....

once I trim, build and set, I never have to touch them again....

I just became a convert to the NT1. I have a question about the carb / brake linkage on page 31 of the instruction book. If I put screw 902310 in from the top it has nothing to thread into. I put mine in from the bottom and it works. Am i missing something here or is the instruction wrong.

Thanks.

Yes as RMD said the instructions are incorrect, I too wondered what was going on at first, as this is my first nitro vehicle.

Just over half way down the page is a picture of Burch's car which shows how it should be. Hope it helps.
