Run the stock springs, I believe only Ralph Burch changed his front springs to a slightly harder rate on the day of the mains to compensate for the high traction that day. The rear springs were left stock. I ran the stock springs when I went there and the car was on rails.

Mike what's up hows everything. Is the build coming along well? I know people have run the serpent shocks on the the NT1 successfully, but I would recommend keeping to the stock shocks with the adjustable piston. I have had no issues with mine

Out of the two I'd go with red dot for that extra horse power up top

Diatta's correct. The stock springs were used in the front and rear, while they used slightly stiffer fronts (similar to the purple 35.5lb) when grip was way up.

Didn't I read somewhere that they were throwing in the front CVDs for free? [ http://www.redrc.net/2007/10/xray-nt1-2008-chassis/ ] Wasn't the going street price for the original car only $400?

What's up with this $90 price increase???
Anyone looking for one may want to check out SpeedWorld Raceway & Hobbies. They're going for $439

I've raced both motors and they each have their advantages. I found the TZ easier to tune for club level power and less sensitive to temp & humidity changes. The JL makes more power with better fuel millage but the stock carb can be temperamental in cooler weather.
