Ok so lets see...
The weather in that weekend race will be cold without sun...
The race truck, is kind of open some quick parts, but not easy... So for sure Ill some more steering and the car has to be quick from corner to corner!!
Should i use purple springs with 450 silicone front and behind??

i have tried Li-fe batteries for my NT1 but they are normally too long to have a perfect fit in size. Normally, my friends will cut off the protection plastic packing in order to put the battery in place. Better choose either Li-po (but you then require a voltage regulator) or the usual NIMH battery.

Use dremel with flat bottom bit,

flattened the north and south corner of xray battery holder.

north corner [___________li-fe battery__________] south corner

I finally ran this weekend again...
All racers had problems cause we had to
get used to the new truck line (if I say it correct)
THe car was good enough, I changed the suspensions positions more to vertical (minor change, but finally so big) , the R3 RC was to quick, and i had to loose the centax spring a 1/4 of hour...
I used 37-40 tires, but next time Ill use 35-37 for better grip... I have to admit that i didnt change the silicone in diffs for the race..
I ll do it next time!!!!
I started 4th in 2nd final...I finished 3rd, and took place place for 1st final...
Was last in 1st final in 14 cars,and i finished 8th!!
1,5 hour of racing this weekend, perfect for practice!!!

Cheers, Nick!
