Depends on the size of the track you're running on. Big or small, technical or flowing

SOunds like you need torque. Try going 15/19 on the clutch bell if you're keeping the stock spur gears

thank you... i have alread printed those 2 set up sheets. as i said before.....those settings are not what im looking for...those are for certain tracks .i printed all the set up descriptions from that link and will refer to it for UNDERSTANDING a setting. i bought the HUDY, ALL-IN-ONE set up system,but it is all USELESS unless i have the STOCK droop setting to start with. that would be the amount of turns that the OFNA tech would use to set droop on an RTR ld3 when he is building it. they must have a measurement
to go by. if the tech uses a specific measurement to set track width,toe,camber,ride height,camber,they must have a setting for DROOP!!!!!! thats what im looking for.....can any ofna techs on this board help me????

thanx

Ive found a mixture of those settings to be good.

Anyway why all the stress about droop? I didn't run any for ages and I did ok, didn't even have the grub screws in but when decide to I set it it to 4mm and 4.5mm

Yes there is, if you look at the setup sheet it shows you where to measure!

BTW Ofna techs are on the OFNA message board... www.ofna.com

Default whats the biggest motor that can fit in ld3

Recently Ive succeeded in killing the redhead, but the repairable. So I was out shopping in the 12 to 15 range but found nothing I liked. So one day is was out surfing and stumbled onto teamorian and liked the specks on the 18. Coped it and went to drop it in and the darn thing in and it would not fit. I had to break out the dremel and do a lill coustomization and then whalla drop it in. this engine has so much tork its crazy A big improvement over the 12 engine. I'm 'bout to make some gear ratio on the clutch bell to get more torque out the car, but right now I love the torque this motor is kicking out. So there for I was out wondering if anybody out there did anyone out there did anything beyond stock specks on the ld3. more fire

People have put .21 size engines in (Would of assumed the .18 would drop straight in?)

For crazy outlaw power look at:
"OS .18 TZ shatters the two horsepower barrier!"

BTW - most engines are a big improvment over RTR engines
