Can you post a photo of the belts? I would like to see them.

I posted a photo on the last page.

The front and rear belts have the rubbery feel, dull color and have xray written on them (similar to the MTX-4R belts for example). The side belt is a totally different material.

This pricing is just getting out of hand. I hate the Euro. If the dollar would be exchanged with krono wich is slovakia's currency the car would cost a third of the price.

Actually, that's not correct. Slovak koruna is pegged to the Euro (there is a limit how much it can fluctuate against Euro), so it doesn't make any difference. Problem is the decrease in value of US dollar against just about any currency out there...

Ok but what i am saying is if there was no euro than the dollars exchange rate would be better.

The 3Racing ones seem to bend before they break. unless you notice and inspect them after each hit, you won't know. The Mugen Ti ones have a different size ball, not by much, but a little and they seem to weekend the hole of the upright. the only time I had an upright fail is when I tried the Mugen ones. If you are trying to drop some weight, look to adding Ti screws on the upper deck, and/or use aluminum wheel nuts, ect.

Sorry, but the Kyosho RRR and NT1 pivots are not the same size. The NT1's are smaller in dia.

if you really want to change the stock pivot balls on your nt1 the only ones that i would suggest are the ones from capricornrc.com. They are teflon coated but i dont know if they are actually lighter than stock. I am sure you can e-mail them and they'll let you know if they are lighter. I have gotten some of the other products in the past and they where all of good quality
