Default Optional Parts for NT1

Hi,

could anyone tell me how good are the aluminium hop-up parts from Atomic, CSO, KM etc. Is it better to stick to the original xray optional parts or are there any significant differences? Are these parts worth buying?

Tks.

Generally all the hop-up aluminium parts. Eg the MTF engine mount.

Mtf engine mount is a waste of money. When it was released, some drivers tested it without success, and went back to original mounts. Mtf mount simply decreases the grip of the car. Instead, Xray released a new one piece engine mount which would be a better option, but again, not really necessary.

Best option part investments would be lighter transmission parts made by Xray and CapricornRC.

What about aftermarket brake pads like the KM Racing ones? Are those still available?

Xray makes all the hop ups you'll ever need for the car. Xray is quality at its best!

The only decent parts are made by Capricorn and the KM Brakes ONLY. Other than that stick with the Xray parts. The most substantial upgrade would be the plastic diff gears by Capricorn. Durability and life would obviously be compromised.

Hi, thanks guys for your feedbacks. Besides performance, I'm also interested in the "Bling Bling". If it's not worth it, then I would stick to the original.
