Are these additions for bling, because I read some of in the NT1 thread some of those stuff actually changes the driving dynamics of the car and not in a good way.

I myself have had the car for some months(1st batch) and I have stripped 2 belts because of dirty track and 2 gear because of incorrect gear mesh.

How come you did not build the car first with stock items then hopup as issues occur ?

Yes, I am very aware of this.

The only item there some may consider "bling" is the center shaft mount. None of the other items will change the handling characteristics of the car which is what that post you refered to makes mention of.

Don't replace any suspension parts with aftermarket ones as you will change the geometry of the car.

Just like the original, the radio plate support is not designed to flex so replacing to alu was simply to avoid the stripping problem, but I will keep an eye on the effects of that.

As for the brake lever, I got that simply because together with the little thicker brake disc, should provide a linier feel.

As for the Lipo problem mentioned, well you need to examine exactly why one exploded. Perhaps simply lack of proper care and attention to detail. Even if you purposely short circuit a lipo it will not just explode like a bomb. The chemical reaction will first take place, get hot, then swell and then explode. So there is actually enough time to catch it before it explodes.

After each race or heat, you want to double check everything on your car including your battery. This should avoid alot of problems.

A precaution I take is to seal the battery with Shoo Gooo so no fuel gets in between the heat shrink and short circuit it.

But then again..... When you use tires other what the manufacture supplies or recommends, isn't that considered interfering the suspension and handling of the car as well????

That's why doing your own testing is best at the end of the day.

but wouldn't changing the radio plate have a weight change which can have some effect on the overall experience especially with balance?
