I used some small pliers to grab the spring tail and twist so it would align correctly, its pretty easy with the pliers..

BTW - I did notice my new tank had a different seal I dont think I had problems with old one though but I did put more tension on the lid..

The first batch tanks had felt seals...the latest has rubber seals which do not leak. HN sent out replacement caps to the distributers when they found the problem (at least in HK they did).....whether the distributer handed them out to the shops was another matter!!

Just checked, my LD3 Standard (only new) has a rubber seal, my LD3 pro (I think its a very early one as it also had the faulty one-way in the 2speed) has felt.

BTW Where do you people mount the transponder on the LD3? (pic?)

Default LD3 Pro break rod length?

I'm setting up the throttle servo and got the linkage setup up
ok going to the throttle but the rod going to the break lever
seems to be too short. My radio has end point adjustments
and break trim but i can't seem to get the break set up right.
when i give it full throttle the break rod pulls out too far from the
lever and just dangles. The break rod is 54mm long but i think it
needs to be at least 15mm longer.
It is the stock one that came with the kit. Anyone got any ideas.
How long is everyone's break rod?
If i need to get another one from the shop, is it 1.5mm thick?
THX

nightmare! thats a bit drastic!? hehe! to each his own. anyway, i replaced mine with a longer one.. anyone know what is the spring load of the black shock springs that came with the standard kit? i guess its really that soft.. any good spring combination for a medium sized, high traction track? how about for a medium-low traction track? thanks! happy new year to all!

The yellow ones that came with the Pro and Champ are also really soft.....I junked those and am using some Kawada springs for the Sigma....had them lying around. Although for this next car I will probably use some Kyosho front springs....Will be trying the 3x1.7mm in black......

NP..the Kyosho springs will fit fine. I imagine that the car will like the silver (softer) or the black Kyosho springs.... going by the Kawada springs I run...which are in between these two.

the stock yellow spring should be rated at 1.3 and this is way softer then silver or black kyosho springs.
