Yep, have converted 2 NT1's using the tcmodels conversion kit. Also have used one of their bodies, they are a bit thin. Kamtec do a very good body.

Yes i have just got the conversion for my 733, its a Team C kit.
Here in the uk we have a national series called Sports GT which allows the use of both 235mm and 220mm chassis, im sure all the cars now are 220mm converted from 200mm chassis.
Only allowed braking on the rear wheels so a oneway has to be used some where in the transmission, .15 engines and closed cockpit GT shells.

Awesome to drive and watch race.

Have had no problems with the quality of the parts in the kit. A very simple and easy conversion to do. All the parts fitted perfectly. You will however need to get a one-way for the front if you are running to UK rules as front wheel braking is not allowed.

The quality is just as good as the original parts they replace, and they make allready great cars even better.
