Is this the same reason by NT1?

thnx

I have been running the car with a 1.5mm split and harder tires on the back. With the 200m cars the rears tires always seem to wear faster then the fronts, so you need to try and run harder rears to keep the split balanced as you run.

When you are in that area,why not buy at the chinese gang over at Mall of Orange, Ultimate Hobbies.

Just don"t ask too many questions

Stefan - the folks at Ultimate are Japanese not Chinese. And they don't carry XRay.

Comments about the car and instruction manual:

- Uses o-rings as a seal between the two diff halves.
- Outer washer between the diff housing and the outdrive.
- Two holes on the top of the rear upright.
- Don't have to remove one of the rear bulkheads to replace the rear belt.
- Side belt tensioner fastens into plastic?
- Turn buckles adjust with wrenches.
- Pre-drilled transponder holes in the upper deck.
- Optional flywheel collets for the Novarossi (7mm) and Picco (6mm). Does a collect come with the kit?
- Very clear about difference in inner/outer diameter of thrust bearing washers.
- Excellent instructions for setting clutch gap and endplay.
- Setting gear mesh instructions - passing grade.
- Adjustable/non-adjustable shock pistons out-of-the-box.
- Rebound adjustment. Interesting option.

Setup book:

- Setup book has some great info - but it doesn't seem to mention anything about front/rear tire split or running small tires for qualifiers. Is that covered somewhere else?? Also, did not see anything about the two holes on the top of the rear upright. Did anybody come across that yet?

Looks really good so far.

If you have the latest version of Acrobat reader and click on the "lock" icon on the top left it will tell you the following:

"You cannot edit, print or copy this document".

There is a way around this, but even I'm not willing to do it.

Is it just me or is this thing Identical to the RRR? I'm not looking to start S#!t as I have been waiting just as long as everyone else here for it to come out. I just built my RRR a month and a half ago and I must say I think I could have built my RRR with these Instructions....They look that close to me




Now fire away at me........
