You guys crack me up!

When the MTX-4 came out, a lot of people said it was a RRR clone. Now that the NT1 is out, yeah, it looks like both cars - so what? Anybody going to get sued? I doubt it. If Juraj Hudy gave you an NT1, would you hand it back to him and say, "No thanks." I doubt it. BTW, never decline an R/C gift from a Hudy, it's probably bad karma or something.

I say, give the car a chance to prove itself out on the track and in the pits. Ultimately that's all that really matters. I know this is cliche, but don't judge a book by it's cover.

I hope it KICKS ASS at WinterNats just to prove you guys wrong. And if it doesn't kick ass... Oh well!

You were right on the money Will. More than I guess you could have imagined.

Only cool thing is the flex with the carbon fiber thingy's, but that's it, and i think other brands also have that with side-stiffeners and stuff....

The Mugen can benifit fromt he flex carbon fiber arms around the battery. I'm already working on that for my mugen. As for the car performance, I'm not knocking it, I've seen it on the track. personaly, I would have one if it was available right now and I could give a better comparison in the hands of an average racer.

How can you say that?? What's the big "break through" on any of the cars? At this point, it looks like small refinements on typical designs. I think Kyosho should get some credit. As the oldest car it is still one of the best and the newer cars appear to be using alot of their designs.

Iīm very dissapointed with the car.
I thought at least they built some aluminium bulkheads or aluminium pullys or atleast aluminium hex hubs in. Something of the "legendary" Xray style.

3 Pieces of spring steel and that flex system isnīt that great..
There is nothing luxuary on the car like on the other Xray cars.
Its like one of many out there.
Couldn`t habe been more worse

Now that everyone saw the NT1, yes, it has all the good things from MTX4, 720 and RRR...totally expected. Now...how many NT1 will be on the A-final at the Winternat? And the chance NT1 will win..? 1, 2 and 3...? All by Xray..?

Don't forget.......Xray got the strongest team on both EP and GP now.

About not having all the bling bling on this NT1....come on, you know it will be a PRO-SPEC version in 8 months, then after the WORLD, it will be a WC version. And the street price for the kit will be $599.99.

I think it will be a great car........but if you are currently MTX4, RRR or 720 owner....there are no need to rush for this NT1 yet.

too bad the engine design is not a one piece engine mont ala buggy,
but it will make gear meshin a quick one,
for my first view, bang there goes the rear shock tower, like on the 710 or RRR due to the short support for it.
nice to see another player in the nitro on road scene!
