If you see the photo, Dirk is using the regular plastic shocks with the orange caps of the ET car. There is no way that you can use the new shorter shocks on the NT1 without mayor changes to the towers.. Hopefully Xray give us a new car early next year…

It removes flex at that end of the chassis. If grip starts to come up and the car starts to traction roll try the graphite tray in the front first. If it helps but its not enough then use the brass front plate instead. This is assuming that you are maxed out on the stiffness of your front bar. In the rear I found that it allows more rotation with the graphite plate. I haven't tested the brass in the rear yet but I would assume running the rear brass tray would help lower the center of gravity helping in high bite conditions. Hope this helps!!

The offset hubs is a powerful tuning option. I have played around with the different offsets and found that it all depends on what you are looking for the car to do. A wider rear offset on the car say like 200mm assuming youre running a narrow front end like 198mm or so will cause the car to have more steering on power but will suffer a little off power as the track with is now wider than the front. This is just an example but you have to play with the different ones to see what you like. You can also play with unsprung weight and other things by using the offset hexes. The standard hexes that come with the car works well in most cases. Hope my explanation is not to confusing.lol

thanks
The 2012 is a standard kit.
The Pro is a 2012 kit with all the extra hop-ups.

The Pro is the better car if you can afford it.

Just got my kit. I never raced 1/10 nitro TC before and could use suggestions for an engine, pipe and gearing. Home track is high bite, tight infield with 200' + straight.

stock gearing in kit is good , motor and pipe depend on the amount of $$$ you want to spend

You can't go wrong with a Max Power and 2670 pipe. Gear it at 17/23 59/55. Start there and see how it feels. That should be a safe gearing for anything Novarossi based.
