brakes have to operate between a certain temperature range to work well.. to hot wont stop and fades, to cold and it will either wear the pad or disc faster, or wont bite as well.. the stock disc actually weighs less (less material) than the exceed disc. hint, if you have fade its probably not the stock disc, look for the pad.

I knew it was the pads, but after discovering the kyosho pads didn't fit, i got the exceed disk.

I was thinking about getting a nt1 for this summer and was wondering about the 08 compared to the 09 spec. I can get a 08 spec for $130 cheaper than the 09. Is it worth the savings or should i just get the 09?

I've got an 08 and just bought the 09 .. so this is what I think .. I like the new side belt tensioner. I prefer the aluminum shocks on the heavy NT1. I also would have gotten the rear cvds that don't come with the 08 kit. With that said, the aluminum shocks kit is $39.65 a PAIR and the cvds are $37.95 EACH, so that's a total of $155.20. NeXus Racing Prices ..... Plus the new two speed spring, wider side belt and other parts .....

It's a NO BRAINER in my book ... get the 09 ... ..... I'll more than likely get the conversion kit for my 08 when the come out, if it's not a arm and leg ...

ok, IMO save the bucks and get the 08, unless your really fast to begin with you won,t notice much difference. buy the side tensioner separate for what, 5 bucks. but the rest of the car is fine for club racing. the rear cvd's just add more moving parts. stock dogbones rear are fine. use the money on spares or tires or something for practicing. I haven't had a problem with the fuel tank personally. and most of the replacement parts are wear items anyhow save for the shocks. and if you want Aluminum shocks you can get serpent RCC's for a bit less and they are better shocks anyhow.. shhhh lol

haha lol
well said unless you are desperate to get a winnig car then get the 08 but surely the 09 worth more than the 08 but both of them can get you anywhere you want
i myself got the 08 kit just after the release of the 09 because i was desperate to get back on the wins(too many stupid breakdowns).
if money is no problem get the 09...

The 09 has a new top deck also so the new belt tensionsr and the new top deck are alittle more than 5 bucks I'm guessing ...

get 09 of course.

Consider to buy Mugen Seiki MTX4 allumunium dampers ONLY IF 09 still come with plastic dampers. From my 08 experience, Xray plastic dampers are leaky sometimes. ( coz only using single o ring ).

I have an NT1 that's was only used as a review for 3hobby.net and would like to upgrade it to an 09 spec. Time to race it properly I think!

Anyone has a list of upgrades to do this?

Thanks.
