Default Alot of play in front tires

Hello, So now im seeing a lot of play in the front tires. Whobble on the Ruster.. Based on what i read the answer seems to be to add "5x8x1mm plastic washers where the carrier meets the caster. Top and Bottom. Would anyone be able to provide a picture of what this would look like. Has anyoe else experienced this issue as well as other ways to resolve the whobble? Thanks in advance, Chris

That could actually be anything, you might just have to investigate and see what's worn out / missing and what the cause of the wobble is. That's a pretty big plastic spacer for a caster shim. And rustlers are notorious for being a little sloppy. could be a worn out axel, worn out bearings, gaps or slop in the caster blocks, spindles, camber links, loose screws. Usually when I shim up a caster block or spindle the spacer is quite a bit smaller like 5x3x1 5mm outside diameter, 3mm inside diameter (same size as the hinge pin) and 1mm thick)

these would probably work. Just remove the pin and place these in between the arm and the carrier. they are 1/2mm so it may take one or 2 to remove the slop. make sure you don't add too many and make it bind up.
