running thicker diff is like running a spool I think it gives the car a better feel at least for me!
it will give the car a slight push exiting the corner on throttle but really good turn in off throttle
it has a lot to do with droop setting as well and how aggressive you drive

If you want a cap clutch for your NT1 you want this one, http://www.capricornrc.com/capricorn...d_product=1773



And cap clutches use cap shoes.

when running the blade front arb flat give it 15 degree upward. that will give you a little more turn in.

Hey guys, so the 2013 has been out for a while. Serpent, and capricorn also have short , fat body shocks and lower towers.

What have you seen as far as a noticable advantage with this setup compared to the taller shock setup? Or, is it just easier to tune for non pros?

I found the 2013 to be a lot more stable in the tight corners and also a little more in the fast stuff. iam running everything the same as my 2012 kit bar the new shocks and towers. also using the topdeck flex system.
i feel more confident in being able to push the 13 a lot harder befor it bits me back

Default rec'vr batt

dumb question

i'm hopefully going to start racing my nt1 this summer. is it ok to run a lipo batt for a rec battery, 7.4 rec'vr battery, or is that too high of output for the servos? would i need a voltage regulator if i did?

i'm not running Radiopost servos, yet. waiting for them to get back in stock. i think i have an assco 1015 and a hitec in it now???

i have a 6.0 nihm battery in it now, just thinking about upgrading...

thanks for any input

i have been running the 6.6v LIFE battery with new KO Propo RSX servos. I also would like to know why there are 7.4V LIPO receiver packs. The Battery linked below is slightly shorter than what I have so it should fit perfectly in the NT1. Someone please explain the difference between 6.6v and 7.4v. thanks

The higher the voltage the better the performance from the servos (assuming they can handle it). I run the RSX One10 servos and they are faster and have more torque when running off 7.4v rather than 6.6v:

Torque @6V: 138oz-in, 10.0Kg-cm
Torque @7.4V: 165.6oz-in, 12.0Kg-cm

I also found I had more choice for battery size in the Lipo range so getting a battery that was a good fit for the nitro car was a bit easier.

Regards,

Simon
