Your really needy today.. a Couple grams on the nose most people won't notice.. add an oz and people notice.. I have used it and noticed small diff, but It wasn't anything I would change setup ride height or anything for. You crash a lot, use it.. don't crash.. don't use it. 80% of the time I use the stock bumper.. If your really worried about parts breakage get the wide front bumper (lower plastic deal)

I'll admit that helps alot. Like everyone I know that runs an NT1 is blow away at some of the things I do. But my day job is doing the same thing.. figuring out how to make a care faster and more reliable.. I also hate things that leak...

hint with the bumper.. It would be better on a technical track than an open track to use that bumper...

will keep that in mind, but that sucks bc open track usually faster and faster means the boards hit harder

these items below:

http://rc-mushroom.com/product_info....oducts_id=4071

they do fit tomb.snowy explained that he built the clutch as per manual,and wasnt engaging to his liking ,so he cut the fly weights .i did the same but keep all the peices in order.the kyosho white weights are a better option as posted previously on this thread.can u get me a set aswell???????

the pivot ball caps are aprox 9mm on the nt1 so prob no they wont fit ,i used plumbers thread tape to stop em winding out as they are a loose fit .thread lock didnt seem to work

I had used the mugen ones at first, but went back to the Xray ones, they seem to fit better, and all I did was put a drop of lock tight on the threads, lit it dry then put them on. now I don't have any issues with them backing out.
