Mine were a little thick to fit btwn the e-clips on the shock shaft. Just did some figure 8's on some fine grit paper.

Do they keep LD3 parts in stock? and do you get them mailed to you? if so how long do they usually take?

AVF ships via Canada Post...Express Post would be like 2-3 days coast to coast. From what I see they stock a decent amount of Ofna LD3 spares, most of the important chassis components are there along with some hopups like the thicker pro suspension arms, aluminum lower suspension mounts etc.

Default Slow goes the rebuild

With about 2 weeks from the start of the season April 17), things are starting to take shape. I just got a new chasis (i have a nagging feeling mine was bent in a nasty crash last year) and the pipe for my new engine (that better get here by next week). I'm trying to decide on a design for the CTS-V. Nobody seems to have the AE shock pistons, so I may end up going to Tower to see what they have. I need to pick up the aluminum arm mounts and a 2nd gear holder (mine has a slight wobble that has always bothered me, but never stripped because of it). I'm debating on the c/f shock tower, but I can get a better price for that overseas. Is that monoblock mount worth it?

The best hopup Ofna offers for the sedans IMO. With the old mounts, it used to take me five minutes to set the mesh properly, especially with the .08 gears. Now it takes five seconds.

I agree - Monoblock IS WORTH IT (I have two!)

Though I am not as good as kevink2 (5 seconds ) it does make it much easier to get mesh correct!

I can only find info on the "Hot New Products" page at the Ofna website:

http://www.ofna.com/newproducts.html

I don't see it at the Nitrohouse website, but you might try calling, or checking with your local Hong Nor distributer.

Well, guess I'll have to get one (and anothr once I get the CD3)

As for the engine, I'm not telling you. You'll find out if you come out on the 17th!
