My queston is does anyone know if the X-Ray gears will bolt to the Mugen carriers...they look simular online but its hard to tell from just looking at pictures. The other queston is what size is the X-Ray mid-shaft that the two speed rides on, if its 6mm then I could possibly use the X-Ray carriers if the gears are not adaptable to the Mugen carriers. Last Queston is....on the X-Ray clutch bell, do the Mugen(MTX3) gears interchange?
Thanks in advance for any and all help.

I think you better stick with what you have now ( mtx3 ).

You have to buy complete set of NT1 2speed assembly ( gear, housing, clutch, etc ) to make it work.

They are not interchangeable.

NT1 doesn't strip gears like the Mugen, unless you have a Picco based engine then you might have a melting gear problems.

Thanks again guy's for the quick resonses. I'm going to order a couple of the NT-1 spurs and check the fit on the Mugen carriers...if they don't work out I'l probably order the NT1 carriers since they also ride on a 6mm shaft.
Do any of you gents have a extra set of carriers you don't need??? Drop me a PM if you do.

Strange... I've run a picco on my NT1 for over 6 months and never experienced a melted gear. Where did you hear this from?

Not to get into who makes the rubber and all. But Exceed has Jaco name on the back of the box and Nitro Shoes have Jaco's name on the back of the box also.

Exceed still uses the old "Serpent" style. Nitro Shoes have updated to a "Prism" style rim that is supposed to be better performing then the traditional "Serpent" style.

I think either are good. It comes down to having a few different flavors available to you as track conditions change or if it's a new track you haven't been too.

I try to keep 38,40, 42 shores fronts with me. 40 and 42 for the rear. I even have some 45's for messing around but don't think I would race with 45's. It's also fun to get the "rear" of the car dialed in as close as you can on 45's then switch to 42's it makes a big difference. I will mess with the front shore to get more "turn in" the softer I go as a setup change.
