DTM,

do you have any advice on how to improve the gear diffs.

I got the 6 gear diffs on my car, filled with 50K Mugen oil and I broke them in for over an hour each direction on my drill press and the suckers still feel notchy as hell.

Will sanding and polishing the back of the diff gears help?

I was also thinking about filling the diff with polishing compound and putting it back on the drill press for a few more hours.

Also, any setup advise for foam tires on high grip surface?

Thanks.

i used a drill to run in the diff too, it took me around 1/2 hour.

some one told me that you need to use longer diff screws. the screws it comes with the kit for the diff is just too short.

Are you talking about those 4 little tap screws that hold the diff together?

Mine are grabbing fine, I think you just need to be carefull not to overtighten them.

i have tried both the 4 and 6 gear diff and found the 4 gear gave more cosistent bite. the 6 gear felt inconsistent out of the corners. just my 2 cents.

Hi all,

I bought the LD3 Pro yesterday, it has 18 new improvements over the stand version, comes with a zipper bag with double carton boxes, Stratus body, a set of foam tires, polished exhaust manifold and pipe. Cost $8000 Taiwan dollars (about US$230), I think it's excellent value for the money. It's a very popular car among the local racers and also the newbies (RTR version), parts are plenty and cheap. I'm a semi-newbie myself, I went with the Pro version, 'coz I like to build.

I just finished putting my pro together and after having owned NTC3 before, I have to say that this is the better car, period.

All the flaws of the NTC3 have been fixed on the LD3.

The centax works beautifully (much better than the Kawahara clutch I bought for my NTC3) and the car has the same punch as the TC3.

I also love that turbine sound it makes under power

I can't wait to put it on the track...

Default Hyper GP4

Has anyone heard about this car??? In the October Radio Control Car Action, OFNA is hyping a "coming soon" pure competition 1/10 4wd gas touring car. I mean what the hell, the LD3 is how old and now they are going back to belts?? I'm not an OFNA guy but if anyone is running oout to get their LD3 they may want to look into this....HYPER GP4.

Relax Dude.

First of all, Ofna doesn't produce anything, they are and Import and Marketing company.

As said on the other thread, the LD3 is made by Hong Nor, the Huper will be made by Ho Bao.

The great thing is you have a choice at Ofna, belt or shaft, whatever you prefer...
