You Serious? It came with the 7075 chassis, carbon/alloy shock towers, carbon radio tray ect???

BTW My Pro came with the centax clutch, the champion edition comes with centax clutch and most the hop-ups (ie carbon/alloy).

what's wrong to the stock knuckle?

the pivot balls are already thin and with this alloy one, the pivot ball will break even faster.

The "Pro" and "Champion" edition are very different animals in terms of upgrades.

Haha. The alloy knuckles would be cool. Strangely enough, I have broken both front knuckles and lower arms but never a pivot ball!

Thinking on the champ edition again, I actually paid $300 for the RTR version, and around here, a Pro version with a Picco engine will go for around the same price, so the price again doesn't look so bad. That shipping price is sure gonna hurt, though! Um, can I get an address or web site, please

Default LD3

Heyaz...I am also interested in the LD3 Pro...I have read the entire thread so far...and Im pretty sure I will either get the Hong-Nor Pro version or maybe the Champ Ed. Im not sure if it's worth the shipping charges ...anyhoo, Spen....
http://www.rc-mushroom.com
has the Champ Ed, as well as RCModel, as you have noted.Both seem to be the same price, around $370 USD.I did look into Mushroom's site, and depending on the choice, shipping was an additional 53 or 67 USD .....Im from CT, so I doubt that the S/H would be much different for you.
But, as I had stated, I am liking the "over-seas" versions better than the US offerings, so if I do get one, Im gonna hafta pay the shipping no matter ...lol..CONFUSING!!!!
Also, the box art on the pic of the Mushroom Champ Ed shows an
LD3 with plastic top plate and towers...as well as the chassis, though I really couldnt see it, it certainly did not appear to be the tangerine color...so Im kinda iffy on taking the chance....
To make matters more confusing for me, my buddy wants to run offroad!!!...I prefer on, but if we do race together ....Im also wanting the H7 PCR Pro kit .

The box seems to be the standard PRO box (with a sticker on it), maybe HN are not making a champion box yet?

Default LD3 Box Art

Probably not, if theyre only releasing 200 of em, would be much more costly to do so....btw, there was a post from someone a while back, i dont recall who...but they stated something to the effect of...
"If you dont mind operating through email, I can get em a lil cheaper"....if yer still around, I am interested in hearing what you have in mind...thanks
