LEGO Technic 42143 Ferrari Daytona SP3 – instructions errors and fixes

Updated 09/01/2022

The LEGO Technic 42143 Ferrari Daytona SP3 is a great 1:8 scale supercar set, you can check my detailed building reviews here. Unfortunately the building instructions were released originally with several errors, I created this blog post to list what was found by myself and the community, and an indication whether they were corrected in the digital version or not.

The manual received a bigger update at the end of August 2022, the major issues are now fixed, as previously I strongly suggest to use the digital version of the manual.

You can see all the previously found issues listed below, with the indication whether it is fixed now in the latest digital version of the instructions or not.

Here’s the video about all the changes:

Step 88 (fixed)

In the paper manual the orientation of the 2 orange wave selectors and the green 2L beam relative to each other was incorrect, more details about this in my video. In the updated version the 2 orange wave selectors are rotated, but their position was not updated in the previous or following steps so you need to pay extra attention. They should look exactly like this when you add the green 2L beam:

LEGO Technic 42110 Land Rover Defender ultimate repair guide

LEGO Technic 42110 LAnd Rover Defender Ultimate Repair Guide

Update 20/05/2022

I tested the drive train again after keeping the set built for a long time, and also tried if the new improved gears could help getting rid of the cracking:

Unfortunately the new gears did not solve the situation either, so I have to say that despite the most careful assembly, the set will start to show the cracking behavior sooner or later.

Introduction

I shared many videos with you about the LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender already, you saw my detailed building review, the details of the drive train and the one about the cracking noise and the possible fixes. I received hundreds of comments from you and many-many requests for help, hopefully in most of the cases I was able to assist to find the proper solution.

I decided to create a summary and a video about all the potential issues I found during the building process. I’ll also go through the drive train from the wheels to the engine, how to verify your build, and what are the problems that are not really problems. Each section is linked to the proper part of the video, use the summery below to find the section you are looking for:
