You might be able to download a Manual from Capricorn RC's website, (the EU/Italian site). The manual is just a CAD color printed tiny note book w/no useful specs, just sequenced step by step assembly instructions, Part #'s, a default and blank setup sheet. With the exception of the necessary design changes to execute what is essentially a Billet/Uber Bling version of the NT1 and with all of the interchangeable parts w/the NT1, that simualarity stops w/the manual. I wish I had the computer skills and required equipment to load you a manual, but sorry, I do not.

BTW, Patrick, (rx7ttlm) I should have invited you to "Throw yourself and your X-Rated car" into Jacko's car and both of you come North and race with us @ FWR! I tend to forget my manners.
EDIT- Never mind, as we got rained out yet again!

Patrick, why were you skeptical about the 2.4? I told you the info was from Xtreme RC Cars magazine performace test. Don't you trust them to provide accurate information?

well i finished the build and everything went together beautifly except for the one missing part but epic is taking care of that, and yes race ready with nihm and normal servos it weighs 1680g! and for the price and what u get i say capricorn all the way. i would have to order xray parts online too so if it handles as good, and im guessing better it just seems like the better choice, for me anyway

I don't trust other peoples math. I am an engineering student . So the REAL internal ratio based on the numbers I have is 2.05:1. I am mounting a new body which you probably haven't seen so I can come out to a non rain race and show you how fast the NT1 really is. hehe

It's been reported in the NT1 thread that people have had problems with the Xceed carbon gears made for the NT1...but so far no reports of problems with Capricorn's gears.

If the body is an R5-N, that's what I will be running at TZ on Saturday...if it doesn't rain.

No problems what so ever, I already did 2000 laps with them and no signs of wear, they still look brand new.
I will change them mid-season though as a precaution.
The only way to destroy them I think is when you don't have enough oil in the diffs. The gears will loose their lubrication, heat up and break.
