I believe the Nt1 has further modification to the chassis which are not easily seen by the naked eye which lowered the COG gravity but also lowers the roll center. Don't get me wrong I believe a lower center of gravity is a good thing but I don't believe in it if it hampers my ability to move the roll center.
NT1 has lower upper deck ( as low as G4S ) thus ultra low CG
Front and Mid section look like MTX4
Rear section look like V1-RRR.

HEY JAYKAY,
you are correct, c is the neutral one

And my friend who had his NT1 debut and won, he used MTX4's whole set of 1st(60) n 2nd Spur gea with its one-way bearing and metal housing.

I was hoping to get some advice on front and rear belt tension. Since i've only had to worry about side belt tension before, front and rear are new to me as far as where they are supposed to be. The stock setting put the front tighter than the rear. So, is this how it's supposed to be? Even with the rear all the way tight on a new belt, it doesn't seem that tight to me. Plus, at the stock setting, the mugen label wore off the rear belt because it was rubbing on the chassis. So, I put it at the tightest position just to get it off the chassis. On a new belt, is this considered too tight? The drivetrain doesn't feel bound up at this position. Or, is it normal for the rear belt to rub a little on the chassis? Thanks for any help.

What do they cost when you buy them in bulk like that and where do you get them?

Default PRO SQUAT

Anyone try this : Lower suspension arms are tilted upward ( Pro Squat ) ?

See attachment. It helps little bit to reduce off power understeering in my car.

I get them from a hobby shot that does business on ebay. They cost $25.00 shipped. They are kyosho branded.

Just got the 4mm rear shock tower for my 4 and it's awesome. Hopefully tomorrow is going to be nice enough for a test run.

Yeah, I got the 4mm shock tower also a few days ago. They are sweet. It is a must have unless you are satisfied with gluing 2 stocks together.

But doesn't that setup only for EP car? All Hudy setup book that come with setup station all refer to EP car. EP car the power band is smoother than GP car.

Interestingly, it helps reduce slightly my understeering problem at off throttle. It helps to coast mid cornering without too much push.

Quick Question:

Iím currently tearing down my MTX-4 after this weekís race and I noticed that my servo saver has some play in it. Their seems to be some play with the servo saver on the metal shaft (1mm - 2mm of play up and down), I may have to shim that shaft so the servo saver doesnít slide up and down. Itís taking away from the MTX-4 steering abilities.

Just checking too see if anyone has had this problem after assembling the kit.

Thanks
