Default LD3

Thanks for the link....looks like I have some backtracking to do. I wish I would have known about the diff oil....now I have to order it. I guess I won't be running it this weekend. Have to break out the MRX3.

Default Building questions

In building the CD3....I found that the front driveshaft where it goes into the drive cup...or as the manual calls it...the "bevel gear cap joint"....is really tight.... is this suppose to be like this? The center cup is loose compared to the front. The front cap joint has that metal reinforcing ring around it because of it's reduced diameter to clear the steering mechanism. Will this loosen up after a few runs? Also the ball cups/rod ends that come with the kit are way too tight causing alot of friction in the steering setup. I used RPM ones on the steering rods on the outboards.....but had to keep the stock ones on the steering bellcrank as the RPM ones are too big and they hit before full travel limiting steering throw. Again how has everyone addressed this. Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks

The cups in front are tight, but don't worry about it.

I haven't noticed slop in the ball cups, for me it's mostly in my alum. steering mechanism...

Default Crystal Park setups

Chris....Kevin...or anybody...can you post any setups for Crystal Park. I'm gonna run my new CD3 there next month...if the rains stops, and would appreciate any setups I can get. Also what shore tires should I run? I know it's a pain and takes time but I would be going in completely blind without some kind of baseline setup. I almost forgot...is the stock gearing ok to use for the first time? Thanks to those who respond.

I posted a low bite setup back around page 12 or 13 to get an idea of some of the things we're doing. I imagine with the weather being cool bite will be higher, so probably I would go stiffer than that setup, leaning the the front shock down, maybe drop down ride ht., more swaybar, etc...
