I like the original clutch with the alu bell and lightweight flywheel a lot better.
Doesn't come close to a Capricorn WCE clutch though.
DS,

Some said alu xray bell have durability issues, developing some weird tracks due to material softness...Did you noticed that ?
CSO have different flywheels, 4.8 and 6.8 grams. Which one have you been using ?

Thanks.

Sorry, saw you're question but forgot to answer it.

I've heard this as well, however I've had the same alu bell in the car for over a year.
It think it comes down to maintenance and how dirty your track is, if you're running on a very dirty track the sand and small stones can cause these tracks.
I clean my clutch after every practice day and roughen up the bell with Scotch brite, this keeps the clutch assembly in good condition.

I don't know which flywheel I had, when I ordered it there was only one flywheel. Can't measure mine as I already sold one NT1.
But I would go for the lightest one off course.

Default Capricorn Magnesium Radiotray mounts

It's possible to fit the recently released Capricorn magnesium radiotray mounts to your NT1.

http://www.capricornrc.com/os_capric...oducts_id=1326
http://www.capricornrc.com/os_capric...oducts_id=1070

However you need to modify the carbon bracket which holds the side belt tensioner as you can see in the pics.
Changing the bolt in the engine mount to a button head and slightly modifying the carbon bracket should make it work.
Also I would recommend changing the composite brace to a tierod as you can see in the pics.
The plastic brace causes tweak (also with the stock setup) and with the tierod combined with aluminum/magnesium radiotray mounts will give more overall mid corner grip.

DS has a lot of free time... Probably a pin vise and a numbered drill bit.

I would check the bearings in the main shaft as well as the bearing in the 2 speed carrier.

Check bearings in the two speed, check the place where the two speed shaft and the one way bearing touch on the shaft. ALSO make sure your not running a split over 5 for the pinions. If you start trying to run an 18 tooth pinion with a 21 tooth second gear you will strip them every time. I check gear mesh of second with first gear not installed. then slide on first (spur) and check first separately. They should be as tight as possible while still spinning free. Hope that makes sense. also make sure your tightening the engine mount screws and using blue loctite. After all that check to make sure your chassis is straight. If its bent that will change gear mesh max/min.

I can say I have never stripped an NT1 spur gear.

Yes check your 2 speed shaft bearing & if pinion gear is new ,
maybe Engine front bearing/Clutch bearing !
