The shims you need, use 1 .02 on both sides and your golden.
I actually like the SLIGHT side to side play in a diff because I take the shims and bend them at the half way point and point the peak side towards the bearings and then slide the tranny cases together. This ends up working just the way floating discs work on motorcycles which reduces friction and vibration. And while the life is static and centered, you can slide it side3 to side if you apply pressure on either side.

I also use this method on bell cranks systems when they have a touch of play because that play leads to slop. I crimp my shims at the half way point and again install them with the peaks facing the bearings and it all fits perfect without over tensioning the system.

Your method works perfect as well, but this is what I prefer.

The other option is to use the new main diff gear that is slightly wider on the DT version of the car, no washers needed.

A wider gear would not widen the diff. You would have to increase the diff ball size to increase the width. With increasing the diff ball size you would then have to increase the width of the diff gear to prevent walking of the gear to maintain smooth gear mesh between the idler.

I recently picked up a YZ2 off of the "for sale" section here and finally had a chance to take it to the local track. It handled pretty good on the clay track. I have a 17.5 with a 70/30 spur/pinion. The only changes I made to it were to mount the rear shocks to the rear of the arms and tower, and add a 25g shorty battery weight. The one thing I noticed is it's tendency to spin out when coming out of a turn on power. Is this an issue with the gear diff compared to a ball diff?

Usually a tendency of the gear diff if the fluid is too light.

How does everyone like this car? I have been running the rb6 for quite a while and am looking at this and the X-ray car. Pros/cons to this car?

I ran rb6 before and I'm loving the yokes I've got the mk1 as a wet/low grip car now and it's faster than the rb in those conditions and the CA for high grip duties
the quality/durability is up there with the kyosho if not better in many ways no bling needed just machined shock pistons

Drove my car, and a friends Xray yesterday back to back, high bite clay so both cars were lay downs. The Xray was nice, but felt a bit dumbed down in the steering department. Setups were both close to box stock, so it was a pretty much out of the box experience, machined pistons, etc. we both agreed if someone wants a more aggressive car the Yokomo is the better option.

I just got a YZ-2 CA and need to convert it to DT. Someone mentioned there is a kit to drill a hole in the chassis. Does anyone have a part number?

Also, what other parts are needed to convert it to DT?
