i have no issues on the plastic shocks except few members here with unlucky crash and hit broke the shock body,basically it is ok,if you keen into the aluminium,i shall say good choice too,feels different on the suspension effects..
3r wc vs nt1 : you l find a brand new racing life and more confident with nt1,definitely you l improve and amaze what the car can do..

happy hunting!

Normally I wasnīt a friend of the plastic damper. There were leaking every time. But at last it was my fault. I havenīt build it right. Now they work fine.
But I also will buy the aluminum shocks, to test them. But not really necessary.

Of course the mugen receiver holder fits on the NT1. I mean the original plastic one. Itīs simple and works fine. The receiver should be fit more stable than with the graphite holder one.

Here a photo how itīs mount on teemu leinoīs car:

Hey Osiris,

I had the same issue with the car when i first built it it. When i first ran the car i was breaking the cvd's at least once every 2 race meets. Since then i have turned my steering rate down so the car has exactly 24 Degrees Lock each way. This makes the car carry more corner speed and also makes it sound quieter because the cvd's dont chatter through the corner, since doing that about 3 months ago i havn't broken one since! Dont worry by turning that rate down you will probably find that the car steers better and more consistantly.

Hope this helps,

Regards, Ryan

I have seen this also happen when the track width is set too narrow as well. So might want to check that also.
