How is the overall quality of the LD3 compared to NTC3? I bought the LD3 because of its excellent value. But I'm still fond of the NTC3 because of its "pure blood", if you will. The LD3 is basically an imitation though.

yep...its[the truck] got everything but the winning trophys....(that includes all the imitations)..


but seriously,I'd like to see the pro run before I Pass judgement...

for the money,the package is really complete......if it has the same balanced feel that teh tc3 has,it could be a great car..esp at teh price point it is..

Just be aware that the OFNA PRO version is not exactly the same as those from other countries.

I believe it has fewer hop-ups as standard.

In Hong Kong the second batch of LD3 Pro has an inline pipe and a semi pre-painted bodyshell- 330M instead of the Stratus. It comes with a dual box bag instead of the single box bag. Overall a move into the more value for money direction!!

Oh dear....looks like they are getting ripped off in the States! However, we are getting stuff which are branded Hong Nor and OFNA in Hong Kong. I assume the OFNA version is the States version??!!

get in contact with the guy that distributes RB engines in oz. JPM racing. he is the guy that distributes it i think (do not quote me on this though)

i think his site with contact details is www.jpmracing.com.au or follow the links from the official rb worldwide site.

the car has had a few "toughened up" adjustments for oz, this is what i was told. looks very strong and even better newbie/crasher proof!
