Stefan

did you tried the team setup?

information from taiwan is that this car is understeer out of box and you need to stiffen the rear suspension.

I tried red/red and it is very nice coupe with 40/40 tires while using #50,000 in the rear diff.

LD3 building question...
Do I need to put grease in the front and rear gear boxes?
The manual didn't say so.
Any building tips or if you know of any errors in the manual?

Thanks in advance!

red is about right for a medium traction track.

Manti,

yes I did try the team setup,but the suspension felt horrible.

Way too less damping for the springs, the thing was bouncing like Tigger.

I'm at 70 wt front and 80 wt rear now.

I might try the 1 hole pistons.

What are you running?
