Oh I definitely will. Still up here in Connecticut. I have an MRX4x (newly built never ran) awaiting engine and pipe. However I am debating on selling it for a nitro sedan. I have had my eye on the NT1 09 spec. Don't see much activity for the Shimo RRR but am stuck debating between the two. Didn't you run Kyosho before?

You really won't be dissappointed with either...

Just the Xray is kept more up-to-date.

Quality is just superior.

Wear is just next to none...

I wouldn't trade my NT1 for 2 RRR...

Or maybe I would, just to sell those 2 RRR and get a new NT1

The Kyosho is an excellent car, just too fragile. You can't go wrong with any version of the NT1.

Cool thanks for the info guys. I'll eventually get time to post up the car for sale and work towards the 09 spec NT1.

D-Nicest - You still running a one way up front or diff? What's a good diff oil to start with on the NT1? 10k?

The Diff or the spool is usually the ticket for me these days. I really like the car with 200,000cst up front and 80,000cst in the rear

D-nicest - Is that the Xray diff fluid or another brand? How are those stock silver springs on it? I think I'd probably get another set of springs to test out unless you know a nice starter for floyd.

Yes it's Xray Diff Fluid, the stock springs are the 33lbs and 28lbs, locally I'd only recommend getting the Rear blue 25lbs as a tuning option. try them and the 28lbs back to back and see what you like better, I personally like the way the blue feels better...

There's Floyd, Jackson NJ (Jacksonrc.com), Chaplin CT (Controlfreakz.com), & Blue Diamond DE. All of these are in the racing forum. We New Yorkers tend to travel a lot lol

Cool guys thanks for the tips.

D-Nicest - What are some good quality foams at BKhobbies? Last time I ran the Jaco Nitro shoes which lasted much longer than the Arrows or some other foam that had these really flimsy rims. The MSR I see now are discontinued.

Jaco Prisms, and or the Matrix with velocity rims are what I'd recommend. I also have some twisters which are pretty good...
