Very nice car, good pictures as well.
Man every time I see one, I really want one.
Too bad I bought a NT1 EC for this year.

But I thought the car came with Ti screws, on yours I see a couple of Ti ones but also a lot of steel screws so could you inform me with what type of screw the car comes with?.

Btw you're going to love those tires, tested them last thursday and I was completely blown away by the grip and feel of the Capricorn tires.

Hi!

I don't know if the Ti screws are standart in box...!!??

At my box there was normal hardened screws (10.9).

For some parts, I use my own Ti srews, but I haven't got enough for the whole car...!!
Comes later...!

The tires I use are not the original Capricorn Tires.....!!!

The normal Capricorn tires has Enetti or Matrix foam and a glue which is not so good...!

- Enneti tires has the best glue, but the foam is not really good.
- Matrix tires are in the midfield with glue and tires.
- ATS has the best foam, but bad glue!

So I had the opportunity to choose and "assemble" my tires...!!!

Now I have Capricorn Hardlight Carbon wheels with ATS foam and glued with Enneti glue....!!!!!!!

Would be perfect...!!!


Greets,

Hmm, ok, on all the official pictures the car features Ti all around and I thought it was stated somewhere as well.

Interesting about your tires, can anyone make such a request when you make a large order or are you a Capricorn team driver?.

I have had very different experiences with ATS tires, they were terrible.
Car was completely undrivable with big tires, huge wear and the car was really nervous overall.
When I put the Capricorn tires on (I have the Matrix foam) the car was just better in every aspect.

Whats going on with the springs? I only see the progressive hard springs that come with the car. Are we to use Xrays or kyosho if we want to change or is Capricorn gonna produce a variety of springs.

I worked at capricorn in italy just a few months ago so you can trust me. And now we actually have our own factory for the tires.... but as a persone who gives evrything a fair chance i have used all the tires out there like Ats and matix and enneti and thought all were good in some way...... but capricorn does there own thing now.... and ues they work good.
I'm not saying the car needs it, I only thought they were included judging by the official pictures.
If I were Capricorn I would make pictures of a car which is identical as the car you are selling. You don't want to disappoint your customers who are expecting a full Ti screw set in the kit, or create confusion.

Ok, that's weird, several people told me the Capricorn tires used Matrix foams.
But if you're saying they aren't, then they probably aren't.
It actually doesn't matter to me as they still are the best I ever tried, and I think they will give me an advantage over the competition.

The wheelbase is adjustable in the rear.

I don't have my car yet, but I'm assuming it was designed to have minimal bump steer. If necessary you should be able to adjust it further by shimming the outer and/or inner tie-rod connections.

As KMW said, there is plenty of clearence with the front belt and the steering linkage to "Shim", either inner, or outer linkage geometry. If you mean Ackerman, there are 3 different plates included in the kit for this. This car seems to have about the same level of adjustment as say, the VoneRRR does.
