Default Aluminum Arm Mounts and kick up

Someone asked me how do you select kick up when you have the aluminum arm holders. I have no clue what to tell him. Since I'm running the nylon ones at zero degrees, I'm curious myself.

I also can't wait to see if these screws will do the trick (the Tamiy self tappers. They weren't flat head, so I'm kinda worried about leaks)

The aluminum blocks came with small black shims so you can adjust the height of the blocks.

Yes!

The car has finally made it.

Time to start the build process.

Any pointers before I begin?

Thanks and advance!

Well I made a few adjustments to the steering setup and it is not binding at all now and is absolutely perfect. Looks like I may be able to start break in tomorrow evening. I can't wait to see how it handles compared to my rtr version. I am running yellow springs up front, copper springs on the back, 60 weight front, 40 weight back, one way up front, ellegi 37 shore back 40 shore front. Should be a lot stiffer than the rtr

Take your time.
Find the 2x8 screws for the rear diff
fill the rear with 100K oil
If you have the US version and you got a front diff as well, find some 300k oil
get some snap ring pliers for the 2 speed

HAVE FUN

Thanks spenzalii!

One more question?

The diff's are tight, they turn but are tight.

Any idea's to solve this.

Thanks!

Also mind, I believe is the US version, did come with a one-way and the sway bars. Whats the difference between the US version and the other one?

Thanks again!

The two big differences are the Ofna version does not come with the power clutch but does include both front one way and front diff.

Release some of the tention on the case this will make it turn a little free. don't over tight them, and don't leave them them to loose also a few drops of locktight willl do the trick...

Default Hong Nor LD3 Pro From R/C Mushroom

What is special about this car? What makes it different from the stateside version?

Anyone ever order from R/C Mushroom? Are they reliable?

Thanks!

Mushroom is #1 in my books

I have the HN version (not the OFNA version) the biggest difference being the Centax clutch. There is a full list earlier on in this thread..

In the Standard version, the OFNA come with lexan shocks where the HN version come with threaded alloy ones like the PRO has

BTW - If ordering from muchroom stock up on parts and any hop-ups you want while your at it. Very cheap

True. The Hong Nor version also ditches the rubber tires for foamies. Is it worth getting one in the states? depends. The price is great, but when you figure shipping and time, you may end up with the same going with Nitrohouse for their pro and getting the centax there. You lose the foams, but you gain a diff and one way. Your call...

As for parts, that also depends on how long you want to wait. The parts are much cheaper there, with few exceptions. USe them to stock up on stuff, and use Nitrohouse or your LHS if you need something right now. RC Mushroom and RC Model are both very reliable. I had my parts shipped with no problem

I am really wanting something besides my NTC3. I think the car would be stronger if they made it out of glass.

I think I could have already bought the LD3 Pro for what I've paid in front tranny cases and arms for the NTC3.

I like the price for the LD3 Pro versus the Mugen, just don't know if I am settling on price, or if I will be happy with it.

elmar66, don't worry shes TOUGH. I would get the alloy lower arm holders and alloy sway bar kits then its super strong

As for prices:
HN version from Muchroom is $5 more then OFNA version from Nitrohouse. Yes you must add airmail but the centax clutch you don't get with OFNA version is $90 from nitrohouse, that will more then pay for airmail.

I forget now, is the OFNA pro a 2.7mm chassis as per OFNA website or is that a typo? (HN website states a 3mm chassis on LD3 Pro)

I am very happy with my LD3's (just about to install 0.8 gearing), next season will be more of a challange though
