The old Mugen clutch had decent power delivery but was pretty heavy, The new Mugen clutch needs work. And serpent clutch is good, but with the HD clutch for the NT1 it's hard to beat with a yellow or red shoe (red for high bite tracks yellow for less bite) It also weighs nothing, Best case you find a hard anodized clutch bell for the HD clutch (aluminum). But with that you risk more inconsistency in the clutch engagement. If your really jonesing for a different clutch check out the Capricorn RC clutch.

The shim size is 7mm id by 0.2mm, 0.3mm or 0.5mm thick (Depending on which one you end up using (xray flywheel cone I usually end up using 0.5)

Hi guys,

I just started racing a Xray NT1 and I'm loving it.

What upgrades to you guys suggest?

What parts should I keep handy in the tool box?

I remember reading some time back about some people that run the 4PKS had to leave the cap off of the receiver box because of excess heat build up.

Use the wide front bumper and you'll see the difference.

I haven't had any problems with my NT1 and Futaba 4PKS. However, I don't use the stock receiver box, if that makes a difference. I use the optional receiver bracket (xra336040).

I ended up upgrading my NT1 with most of the WC parts. If I had to do it again, I wouldn've got the WC edition up front. You'll definately want to consider purchasing the lightweight shafts, brass motor block, high dynamic cluch, hard clutch spring, hard gear box springs, etc.

As far as spare parts, definately purchase extra belts and spur gears. That's pretty much it. Nothing ever breaks on this car.

But, broke parts is all dependent upon how well you drive.
