the transmittion is not smooth when everything is new. you can feel the gears kicking each other when you then the wheels or the tranny. run in the gear box with slow to medium speed around until you do not have the new gear feeling.

actually it wont hurt at 3/4 speed but you will not have an efficient gear box before the gears run in.

sounds about right but make sure you clean the gear box after run in and relube it with high quality gease. a little bit of the gease will do the job.

for the LD3 Pro owners : do you fit all 3 shims on one side of the rear diff according to the manual ? this make the whole rear axle very tight with the gear box.

Simply use enough shims so you end up with a "little" play in the gears.....I used 2 shims only...and different position for different gearboxes....

The car can be setup to run better or worse than the FW05
R and RR Evo. Simply depends on how good you are at setting the car up...

One immediately noticable difference is when the gears have run in the car will carry much more speed during off power than the belted cars....this is probably true of the FW05R also....
