Regarding the shocks, I have been using this method for some time, it gives you a perfectly built shock. Completely different to what the manual says:

Why only the front diff?

No real reason, prefer not to risk it in the rear.

In case you are wondering, there is a 12.9g saving

Thanks Michael, is that with the alloy diff pins or just the graphite gears?

With the rear having thinner fluid, if the graphite gears are going to strip, the rear will do it.
I did the same thing with my nt1. Really saves weight, if thats a concern of yours, and in the right place

Joe is right regarding stripping chance. One thing also to consider is the extra weight in the rear will probabley give you more steering. (maybe)

Hey guys, I just bought a '13 nt1 and a Novarossi Virtus motor to put in it. I have no clutch right now so since I was going to buy brand new, I thought i would buy the right one the first time and not have to do a lot of tuning with tons of extra parts. How do you guys have your clutches set up for high bite track?
thank you!
