Were can I find setups for this car? The only ones I can find at petitrc are from Ď07. I have a NT1.2 Are you guys just running box setup?

Iím new to nitro other than a R2R HPI I had like 15 years ago. What is a good nitro motor? Is the Novarossi ISON a good one for beginners or are the MOTOs and Mephestos really that much better? Thanks

Xray website has all the setup sheets you’ll need. But baseline box setup is more than adequate for most tracks. Tires are gonna be more important. All the nova and OS motors are good for beginners. Break it in right, always run a clean filter and always warm it up before running it and even a $200 motor will last you ALOT of gallons.

I'm in the process of building my NT1.3 now and I have a question. What is the benefit to running the graphite diff gears vs the metal gears? I would think less rotating mass and a lighter drive train but is there anything else?

Been told that plastic gears cant handle the forces for the back diff but works fine for the front diff.
Plastic gears runs much norr smooth then metal.

I used to run with metal gears when i was driving nt1. Works great!

What are good servos for this car? I have a lot of Savoxs and I have been happy with them. I have been running the Savox SB-2263MG in my electric TCs. Do I need or want low profiles for this car? Also is a faster or higher torque better for nitro?
Thanks in advance!

Plug on the side of the receiver box. No switch. They fail too often.
