I'd rather have the alloy mounts instead of the optional brake pads. Kinda strange that the brakes can lock like hell but running with a front one way you have to turn the braking effect down anyway..........

$20 buys you a lot of diff cases....

I have had no problems with mine yet. Probably taken apart 5-6 times. I find the art of not stripping the thread is to screw the screw in about 3/4 the way in. Wait about 20-30 seconds (or put in another screw), Then screw the remainder of the screw in "just as you feel it go tight...stop"

The plastic gets pretty warm when you first put the screw in, by waiting a little while the plastic cools down and then end point becomes more obvious. Something I picked up during my thread striping Tamiya days!

Also, having threaded the plastic... when you put the screw back into the threaded hole.....back thread the screw until you feel a slight "click" then forward thread the screw...you would have picked up on the original thread you made...rather than cutting a second thread. I still strip threads occasionally...but it is less frequent rather than more frequent.

i tried out the associated springs and they fit. they are slightly longer. i tried the gold ones from my electric and it seems the gold springs are harder than the black ones that came with the kit!? i think i will be going for the kyosho springs (hope the length is the same with the ld3 springs).. thanks guys!

The spring length is not that important...providing you can get all the adjustment you need as your foam tires wear out. You can use the Kyosho front and rear springs...I found that using the Kyosho front springs at the back of the LD3 will not give you enough adjustment.
