Default .08 Centax

Ok, I know this subject has been gone over before, but I am still confused a bit...
I know Nitrohouse has this "new" clutch available...they have
PART# 38620 Power Clutch 0.8 Gearing (LD3,MTX3,TC3)
and
PART# 38640 Trans, 0.8 Gearing LD3
Both, I understand are needed...however, I have seen some say that the Mugen offering is cheaper...NitroHouse has the Ofna version roughly $180 for both together...What I am looking for is a part number or perhaps a direct link where both "sides", or the clutch and trans of the Mugen are sold.Or should I simply get the Ofna version from NitroHouse.Better still, is there an aftermarket company version available.Any help is greatly appreciated.

I broke one diff screw (2mm x 6mm) in half but still ran the diff :O as you can see the rest of them pulled out..

And thoughts on why I would break a screw??

Silicone oil does not dry up in less then 24hrs

you might need to use 2x8mm instead. 6mm is a bit too short.

Yeah its a mess but not as bad as I expected when I first opened gear case (mind you it was melted shut! lol), I am surprised the gears are not totally mashed, the gears where DRY so it must of come apart in the qualifiers or very early in the 20min final


Manticore, Ill do just that. Thanks for your input

BTW on closer inspection, it looks like worn bearings that caused it. ill be sure to keep a better eye on things, and use the longer screws

Set up!!

That diff looks painful!! Good to get the win though.

I was able to pull out a club win too. Beat a Trinity Reflex, V1RR and a MTX3.

My problem is set up. My rear tyres were absolutely wrecked. Can anyone point me in the right direction regarding set up? I know there was talk about it before but I've lost where that was. I'm looking at springs, tyre shore, camber etc.

I love my LD3.

Use the machine screws that are used on the one way...Never had issues with screws coming lose after switching to those.

I don't think the mugen 2-speed will fit on the LD3. You might just want to go with the the complete OFNA set just so you don't have to worry about fit.

I have been using the Mugen and Kyosho centax with Kyosho old style gears (1.0 pitch) without any problems. For the spurs gears you can stick with the HN 1.0 pitch gears that comes with the car.

Keep adding camber until your tires wear flat.....I think I have about 4-5 deg in the back of my LD3......and around 2 deg up front......

I try to run the same shore front and back (40). If need be I will go no more than 3 shores different between F/R if you need anymore you should look at the settings on the car.

Talking Thanks

Thanks DTM.

My camber was 0 degrees, but that is obviously way out. I will adjust for the next meet.

Happy racing
