Blue ring is just a bit of blue wire from a multicore cable. SO I know what shock oil is in the shocks. Because I purchased a 2nd LD3 for spares (ends up cheaper) I assemble shocks with different oil, I put different colour on for different thickness.. 9not that I have used them )

VRF201,
Floating rear - get it from ur normal LD3 parts supplier.

Default Setup question

Here it is!

Currently my LD3 is running pretty good, but the rear tires still cone to some degree. I run the setup obtained from OFNA's web site as my base's, 2.5 camber for the rear. The front tires are fine no signs of coning. Any ideas on how to stop the coning in the rear would be great?

Thanks to all who respond.

VRF201

P.S. Everyone at my local race track can't believe how fast this car is with the Pico motor that came with my LD3 Pro and how will it handles.

If your coning on the outside add more negative camber, if your coning on the inside add less negative camber. Also the default camber link positions on the LD3 are such that when the suspension loads up you gain in negative camber....for a little less negative camber gain you could use the lower camber link mounting hole on the rear hubs.


Well finally good news happening here for this LD3 fan....our shop got the Ofna parts supply (or lack of) sorted out and I'm going to run my new TR in a little in the morning Should maybe be able to get some test and tune time in during this weeks club practice session too which is a good thing....shooting for an A main position at the next points race meeting, wish me luck

Thanks au_Nightmare you answered my ?'s . Now here's a next one, Do you realy feel the difference w/the anti.roll bar , for example going into corners do your car realy feel planted to the ground,and do you fell your moneywas well spent on this product. 2nd the floating rear is that used only on the lola bodies or on both.
One more ? ingenneral, the pillow ball on the right rear of my ld3where you adjust the + & - has just a little more play than the rest wheels. How can i make this more sturdier or give it less wiggle.

P.S. I know its suppose to have some play,but mines move like ite doing the ramba or some sh*T...Hey thanks for your time who ever responds.....

1. Yes the anti roll bars give a night and day difference when you are fine tuning the car.

2. The floating mount can be used with both TC and lola bodies....although I found with TC the back end was too rigid going around corners...but this is track dependant.

3. Adjust the PB holder until the A arms fall freely by themselves without the shocks on...this will take out most of the play. If you still have play it is most probably because you have some plastic flash between the PB and its holder from when the thread was cut into the hub. You should notice most of the play comes from the bearings wearing loose...this is due to the soft plastic used in the rear hubs....
