My NT1 with Kopropo 2413 Servos and Novarossi Plus 12-3 SC engine, empty tank and rear tires with 61mm, weights 1780g.

I will try to change the upper deck screws with titan screws. Of course the mugen one fits.

What exactly is your point? I don't think anyone really cares what an HPI car weighs in the NT1 forum. Also, who cares about Xray releasing option parts, the car is still perfect but if people desire some lighter parts why is that a bad thing?? How does that contradict Mario's statements that seems to have made you so bitter, its not like it's a whole new car.

Speaking of weight though, at the capitol classic my car needed 25 grams added, I was running the light parts but atleast let me put the weight where I wanted.

I am ordering gears, springs, and a bodies. Is there any, I should not get?
I will mostly be running at the track where they will be holding tha nationals this year. So any suggestions would help.

I have no issues with the nt1..its a great car....and you deserve to be proud of it......I just took issue with wardo calling the car a brick,as I'm an R40 enthusiast...

And I didn't bring the LW parts issue,other people did....I just concurred.And This is RCTECH...NOT a policed Xray forum,where Slow,myself,and others can openly express our feelings,good, bad or indifferent,without being censored).....(of course,no flaming allowed!!!!..)


btw,I got the impression that all the team guys were running a stock car,which make the results even more impressive....but if you are telling me you were running LW parts,I'm getting a different idea....

would be nice to weigh about 1740 or 1750.

Of course I will change the receiver pack to the AAA cells. So I will lost about 60g.

So I can lower the CG with the tank and I can put some weight to the front.

At the same race, I ran the NT1 box stock except for 80% of screws replaced with titanium screws, one lt weight throttle servo, and a 2 cell lipo pack. My car was 80g under weight and I was able to balance the car out nicely with more weight forward for steering.

I've weighed some of the lt weight parts and they are generally 5% to 15% lighter. However, the difference is really more noticeable from the 'rotating mass' standpoint.
