Do you do anything to the pistons when they come out of the package or is it all stock?

The pistons are stock. I just clean them up and thats it.

Thanks Drew

Default Shortened front arms.

Hi Drew, The front arms that you are using are they an Xray shortened lower A-Arm? I didn't know if they made them. Also which ackermann setting are you using with the shortened front arms? Thanks RayJ

Ray those are the new 2010 front arms they are out now, and yes they are 2mm shorter. We are running the D block. Meaning looking at the car like you are the driver you should read D.

Thanks Drew

Default Yellow dyed fuel tank

I've just finished a gallon of o'donnel fuel and it turned my NT1 fuel tank yellow colored.
I've tried several cleaning products but nothing seems to work to give the tank its natural color back.

Any suggestion ?

Thanks.

I've just ordered a new tank and returned to Byron.
Seems that O'donnel have a different oil that dyes fuel lines and tank...

Thanks guys.

Hey Drew, Thanks for the info on the arms. I have to place an order soon and am still running my 08 version of the NT1.

Couple of things I want to upgrade on the car.

1) High Dynamic Clutch: Should I be running the yellow shoe with the hard spring or medium spring? It will be for Toledo.

2) Capricorn Tires for Toledo. for qualifying 37 fronts and 40 rears? or something else?

3) On the Capricorn Tires what would be decent for mains? 45 rears? and 40 fronts?

RayJ

I had the same thing with o'donnel fuel, drove me crazy, but i used up the gallon and then switch to EB Mods fuel. The tank still has a little yellow to it but not that bad.

DLS system in the NT1... Has anyone brainstormed on this??

My only problem is how to mount it to the rear arm. The rest is the same as the other cars.

I wouldn't like to use a MTX-4R rear arms.
