Good idea. Quite a few people do this to keep from grinding the starter wheel to bits.

no no, don't install like that. Battery fits UNDER where you have that pack. You didn't throw the plastic battery retainer away did you? See the empty spot behind the receiver (sitting under the flat bit of carbon behind receiver box), the battery goes in there. The image I posted of my charge port is with the battery installed. Thats why you use a AAA pack so it fits. Your CG will be much lower when you put the correct battery in the correct place

Yes thats the part. You should have one? All CD3 kits (and upgrate kits) should have them.

HN part number is LCD02 (OFNA # will be different)
photo of the tree. It's the top left part.


And stop using photos of my dirty CD3 after the enduro <grin> eheheh

Roll Center??

Is this parameter changeable on the CD3?

If so, how does it affect the handling and traction?

How do we change it.

All the more reason to clean the car BEFORE taking the picture, my friend! I'll post some of my ride before and after the charity race in 2 weeks.

Default Gear ratio and combination

Hi guys, would anyone be able to tell me the gear ratio for the cd3? Is it the same if using either 1.0 or 0.8 pitch gears. Also, what's your gear combination for a track with lots of tight turns and 1 straight of about 100-150 ft? Thanks for your help
