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?

Yellow shoe with the hard spring or a orion spring. I like the orion spring the best.

Tires for Qly's 32, 35 or 37 fronts we run the 32 or 35. Rear 35 to 37 maybe a 40. For the main 37 lf 35 rf 45rr 40 lr is a good combo. But 40 front and 45 rear and good and safe. In the main at the worlds we ran 35 lf 32rf 37 lr 35 rr it made 30 min no problem.


Thanks Drew

In the works we will see how it goes at the GLC. And I will post some pics here. It is something I came up with and it will work with the parts you have just some modding..

Thanks Drew

I learned it from you. Weren't you the one that always said that we needed to keep looking to improve our car with whatever parts available??

Like the 720 with the Kyosho rear arms?

It eliminates the camber gain at all times, so you adjust your static camber at nearly zero, and you have maximum contact patch to the ground.

Someone ever replaced the little brace between the 2speed bulkhead and the radiosupport with a tierod?

Wischinski has this in his car as seen in the image below.
The standard plastic brace can cause tweak sometimes because the fit isn't 100% think this is the reason.



Also more rear wing/ body supports as seen at the WC:





The youtube clip of the dax djiewie mentioned:

+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


Btw just something I was wondering, I just finished building my T3, and this has a lot smaller ballends and ballcups. The ballends are made out of one piece of aluminum and have the thread incorparated.
Why not use the same size on the NT1?
Would shed some weight, don't think you need the bigger ballends for strength.

The brake pulley bulkhead brace is different too.

Interesting.

I also noticed the brace adopted by Dirk on the Xray..but I thought he used it due to the bad weather. In that conditions the car has to be the most flexible.
I think it's too much for a high grip condition... but.. we will see in the next days
