I'm sure that there will have conversion kit for LD3. Because when I first time saw the CD3 several months ago,I told the idea to Mr.Wu.... And he owe me a dinner.....

I've been abusing my LD-3 since Christmas and have just broken the my first part - I snapped a pivot ball, this happened inside the plastic front arm, the wheel hub and arm were unmarked!

Hmmm...How much do you want for the crank? It may be worth it, but I have to see if I get the engine first. Then gotta see where I want to send it to get modded. Methinks it's a CX12 (Haven't seen any other side exhaust NRs at all)

It is a rather tough car. My latest mishap was with a piece of rebard used to hold down the pipes on our local short track. The bumper was toast and the plastic lower arm holders snapped and bent the hinge pin. But the arms and knuckles were fine! I have snapped the usual items (knuckles, arms, bent stinger) but only after some serious high speed impacts with immoveable objects and/or bigger cars

Hey guys... Im pretty new to nitro, but not to racing... I striped out my spur gears and I was wondering, do I have to order the Ofna LD3 ones from like Nitro House or are these gears pretty much universal like an electric spur? Reason I ask is because no one carries LD3 stuff out here but there are a few good nitro on road shops.. Thanks for your help!

No unfortunately because of different two speed designs most spurs aren't universal. Ofna spurs are only ones that I know of that will fit, unless someone else here knows of something. I suggest buying at least a few sets at a time.

This may be a dumb question and please dont take it like im bashing but whats the point of converting over to a CD3? It seems a lot like that Kosho FW something... Where would the gains of this new design come from? Thanks!
