You know, I've had my LD3 since they were first released and can attest to its durability. However, all things are relative. If you hit something solid at 40+ miles an hour, something is going to break, no matter what car your driving, Kyosho, Mugen, Ofna, Serpent or Chevy. It's simple physics.

Keeping the basics in your pit box (arms, knuckles, pivot balls) should do the trick for spares.

(got your engine sorted out yet? Can't have my cheap CD3 & STS engine infront again! :P <cheeky grin> )

Onetrip:
Yes the lower arms are a great hop-up, together with allow sway bar holders you will never (well i have not in a long time) break an arm again but you will bust pivot balls on big hits. I have an image posted on the OFNA forums. (CD3 or LD3, forget now)

Apparently one cool thing is run Cradlock Racking disc pads (anti-lock anti-fade) (see post from kevink2 on this page http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthre...70#post1591070 )
The OFNA ones are a direct fit, though I have X1CR 1/8 buggy disc on mine ATM - not tested but also a direct fit. (just remove the pins from the cup or you can gind two groves in the disc for the pins).
hey dude long time no talk! guess what, i sorted out my engine problem an u will never guess what it was.. the hole in my front windscreen was not big enough! anyways im gana be probably goin to the summernats at illawarra, you gonna come down? should be another good race, the summernats is always awesome no matter what its at speak to ya later!

Default WTF!

Hi Guys

WTF...

I have just finished reading the thread, and i can't believe how quickly things died off for Hong Nor. If we go back in time to the Manticore / DTM days alot of people had the LD3, just as the CD3 was announced things dropped off adn the Cd3 doesn't look anywere near as popular as the old Ld3 was? Things can't have been that bad were they? I certainly didn't read anyone having major problems with the car....

I look forward to reading some replies

I am enjoying the CD3 much more then the LD3. The shorter center drive shafts with the 0.8 gears.. yummy..

I knew you liked your CD3

I still don't understand the sudden decline in numbers for Hong Nor / Ofna TC numbers

I must be honest here and confess that i have not had the pleasure of driving such a beast, i have just about every other brand covered so far

Nup converted mine to a CD3 - much better. One big thing is with the gears being in the center it no longer picks up rocks like the LD3 used it (with gears at rear..)

Yep... got it for $130 with a bunch of extra's... fuel, cones, parts, tools, etc etc... This car handles so much better than my RS4, but then again RS4 isn't the R40... which might be my next investment, but I am gonna learn this car first... I was toying with the setup this weekend running NASCAR style track of cones: left turns only... Learning all the new adjustments my RS4 doesn't have.

I have been reading though this thread too... a lot of info... so if you have anything helpful that might be buried... give me a shout. Sorry to dig up old bones, but I am really excited about this car and a buddy of mine is gonna pick up a CD3 next month...

If his got the $$ make it a CD3 pro, I don't know how you guys can do without 0.8 module gearing etc...

BTW Read the CD3 thread also, a lot of stuff will still be relative to the LD3...

I have no clue what .8 module gearing is, but I am sure gonna find out. I am just a parking lot racer... me and a few other guys turning left all day, so no need for the big $$$ conversion just yet. Tracks here in Germany are scarce for Nitro in my area. I think the closest one is about 3+ hours away... Not traveling that far with these fuel prices over here...

Thanks for the advice on the CD3 forum though... I can't believe I need to use heavier diff fluid in my LD3 than I do in my Savage... but then again I can...
