From the looks of it, He is not using the DLS on the suspension. It's just a brace that help front to rear torsion. Side to side flex will not be affected from the way it's set up.

I'm not sure it's a good idea to brace it like that. It is off center so any force that would cause a bending motion in beam is also going to cause a twisting motion, tweaking the chassis slightly. Granted, it's such a slight amount of motion that it probably wouldn't be very noticeable but still not ideal.

Default pinion remover

i have the mugen pinionremover but unfortunately does not work with the new pinions!
i also have the plastic ones from serpent and the 20 teeth pinion barely grabs it, so what are you guys using????? maybe the rrr works as it has 15 and 20 teeth pinions????

Same can be said with any car using a brace.... This at least lets you realy adjust it to exact lenght vs off center holes in previous designs.

I checked and what you say is right. The NT1 gears are steel! I have an older set of NT1 gears in our front diff which are aluminium however; so either the gears have been changed to steel by X-Ray, or the gears were from another manufacturer made for NT1. All I remember is that they were bought from Hong Kong.

Kindest regards,

Keep us posted k?
Maybe not so much the car not wanting to turn in, but more like you say the car had a good steering servo in it, and that also 'felt' dull, I had the expo turned down to speed up the steering, so yeah more like it did have a 3003 in it, but it still should have been turning when the small play got taken up.

Capricorn has very simular gearing now, or we now have very simular gearing to the Cap, I like you tried the Mugen tool first I got the kit and it's useless now, but the Cap tool looks like it may work.

Not really relating to this thread, but have you owned a Serpent 733 and back to back tested with and without a DLS before giving your expert opinion? Think many would disagree with your statement, as depending on track conditions it can definately make a big difference........

for pinion removal tools the xray pinion removers have a 20 and 15 tooth pinion option. i'm guessing it fits....unless the mugen gears are a funny shape or pitch.

Why not getting the old Mugen pinion tool with the 2 pointy screws?
