Explain the exact tire wear problem. All four tires wearing fast...rear tires only wearing fast...left or right side only wearing fast...etc. Also, what are the track conditions (smooth/bumpy, low/med/high grip, any traction compound) and the tire brand/shore rating that your using.

you lost 3mm on the right and 6mm on the left in 10 minutes ?



If that so, I think you have to complain the track condition to track owner. It's very bad surface. Need recondition.

Well, I hope you can fix your tire problem. Sorry, I can't help..... I'm not a setup expert.

Hey Guy’s

Just a quick question I have a NT1 ‘08’.
The car is great to drive having heaps of fun with it only still learning how to drive it.
I have put around 2ltr of fuel through it. But so far I have replaced the left hand side front diff bearing (941016) due to it melting the composite adjuster ball-bearing hub (332070)
And last night at racing the front left hand side inner (941016) wheel bearing I found half way through the race the car was not right.
We stopped the car and found that the left side wheel was not right we removed the wheel and found the composite steering block was starting to melt due to the bearing locking up.
Is this a common thing with the NT!?
Are the standard bearings out of the kit dry bearing or filled with oil?
Can you get a set of bearings that are filled with grease? Or is it worthwhile to remove the bearing shield and fill with a light bearing grease. Yes I have seen ceramic bearing but they are a little expensive.
Does Xray have a grease to suit the bearings in the NT1 kit?
Do you guys have this problem with the bearing?
How do you guy’s maintain your bearings?Or do you guys have any ideas?

Thank you
