I saw a sponsor driver testing the nt1 on the track, the car behaves significantly smooth even with its original non-cvd shaft. probably option cvd is not a needed parts from observation even testing with front rigid.
the other observation is, the whole mtx4 1st and 2nd spur gear with its one-way and housing can be used in nt1.
"after 7 to 8 tanks of runs, no freeplay on all arms can be found , compare to his previous 7xx, there were freeplay already when brand new."

Stay tuned.

Interesting. At first glance the nt1 looks a lot like the mtx-4. I wonder if there was some modeling after it. I was thinking so myself.

maybe the NT1 looks like a copy from other car, but it's not. it has some new and more advance technology underneath

the drivetrain is soooo smooth, very nice

I don't think it's possible to create a new chassis, without being influenced by existing designs. That's not to say that a person couldn't come up with something totally new and innovative. The whole point of the exercise, is not to come up with something different, but to come up with something that works.

Just my 2 cents...

Serpent did it. It was called the "Vetec" Ralph won the ROAR Nats in Vegas with one, but it wasn't pretty. Lots and Lots of work!

Congrats to Team RCAMERICA/XRAY on your win at Homestead. Congrats also to Juraj Hudy. Your design is proving to be quite successful.
