Sorry Bundy_Bear, thanks for the help.

I discovered yesterday that the Xray pullies didnt fit, they are too wide so the c-clip cant be mounted. so we need a new middleshaft and rear 2speed shaft, but as said i cant find any that fits the car

KM has a lot of parts that fits the car thou.........

If its anything like the R40 buy something else. That was the most fragile car ever.

Of the new cars released for the 2012 worlds; I prefered the HB R10. Hopefully parts support for the US gets better.

Hey guys, browsing through the competition and looks like HB notes that there engine mounts are flipped depending on what brand you have. I have the 12xz speed 2 and was wondering if it can be set lower than a Nova in my NT1 with milled down mount... Can anyone with a R10 confirm the depth of that depression?

I am interested in a "new" kit... Still in the market but I have so many spares for my NT1. trying to decide what is logical at this point. Once Great Planes has a good supply and cheaper parts, this car would be a great contender. Out of the box, this car is the best bang for the buck! Clutch looks solid to. Just too many things going against it right now to make the change.

Gotcha. I'd love to buy one if we had nitro TC guys locally who would actually run regular. We will see how it works out if people start showing up ill build one and see if I can find a cheap o motor just to run and mooch off someone for a starter box unless I can find my really old one.

Question time for me now...

Has anyone else had issues with the front suspension being tight and the up travel being limited at all? Its almost like the swaybar is tight into its cup but only one way:S

Also what starter boxes is everyone using? Brother has installed his OS Tg and the rubber wheel on his Thunder Tiger starter box is too wide for the cut out in the chassis and rubs badly slowing it down too much.

Thanks in advance!

It sounds like one of your front steering hubs might be upside down. If you look closely at them you'll see that there's an extended "lip" on one of the areas where the pivot ball comes out. That extended lip needs to be on the top of the suspension, or else it will limit movement. You can see how it's supposed to be installed in the side diagram of Step C-03 on page 9 (look where it says "2mm").

Thank you for your reply, we are wondering if we set the engine mount incorrect though... Being an OS engine we set it for that, should we have set it too Novarossi and would that lower the engine in any way?
