Body does look nive, I will say.

As for how fast the Pro RT will go, I'm not too sure. I'm pretty sure it will touch 40+, given enough room to stretch out. It's been a while since I had the redhead engine in there.

Had one on my ld3. So I can say you've got a 1/3 chance of getting a good one. I had a good one, Spen had a bad one, and this guy on RCZ, who's name escapes me, had a bad one. Trust me you'll want to upgrade soon anyway. Go for a STS or the OS TZ which will probally be my next motor also.

I used to have the Ofna Force 12 stock motor on my LD3 RTR and tuning it is a nightmare! I replaced it with an OS TR (non turbo) and that motor made my day

I'm now running an O.S. TZ .12 3-port on my CD3 pro (converted from LD3) with Skyline VR12 pipe.

Can anyone share their setup with me? I'm running on a smooth high traction track with lots of tight turns. Either reply, email or pm me. Thank you.

How are you guys running the diff in the rear ?
Running the stock ring gear and pinions or aftermarket ?
Where are you runnning the shims for the diff case ?

Please advise, I'm having trouble stripping gears.

Thanks

I'm running everything stock with one shim on each side. No oil but grease in the diffs. I haven't ran my car a whole lot but enough to see there are no diff problems on mine.

My other one had a problem with the bearing which kept causing the gears to strip. At first site by bearing looked ok -- but then when i applied some pressure -- it would wobble from side to side. Enough play to strip gears. ( you may want to check your bearing just to make sure ).

O'Donnels is a good fuel if you can get it at the same price of other fuel, I use the 30% & have no problem, I can not say much about your engine. I use Rex RER S5 engine. But I do not see why your engine should be different?
