How many shims and where did you guys place them to get the correct amount of backlash and freeness of the rear diff? Or is it different with every kit? -JB

every kit is different


The instructions are a starting point...stock shimming may work or you may have to shift a shim one way or the other.Best way is to try it different ways and see what's best for your car.

Yeah the way I shimmed it was- starting w/ the long diff half, slvr-bearing-slvr-gld-slvr-bevel gear-gld-bearing. Worked out PERFECT- n- SMOOTH AS BUTTER
Soon as I put my electronics in and paint up the Stratus 3, I'll be ready to put the new ride into action -JB

JB. Did you buy this kit recently. I notice you have the MIP CVD's and not the Uni CVD's. I thought only the original kit that was released had the MIP's
Is it the 2005 edition???

r/c-zombies,
Since, I don't recall getting an answer to my earlier (many pages ago ) question and we now know, that the new Pro 4 shocks are using the competition o-rings and bladders... what is the difference between the various types (competition 30, 40, 50, 60) ?

Do shims for the diffs and transmission come with the kit or do people buy them seperately? If it does not come, then where to buy?

HPI has

Low Frition Orings in 30,40 and 50
Competition Orings in 40, 50 and 60

and

Competition Bladders in 40, 50 and 60

They are of new compound materials to prevent swelling due to oil absorption. Thus minimizing damper shaft resistance.

And the low frition and competition orings are of different material too. I believe the competition ones have less shaft resistance, but it doesn't comes in hardness of 30.

All these oring and bladders of different hardness are used to tune the rebound speed of your shocks.

Eg, I presonally wants faster rebound, so I use 30 Orings and 60 Bladder.


Just my 2cents

I got it off E-bay recently NIB, so I don't really know. Does the box or instructions say anything about it? All I know is compared to my Yokomo kits, the only one it doesn't top in fit-n-finish is my SD World's Replica. This kit was AWESOME to put together except the way that HPI packaged the sections together was kinda scatterbrain-ish . Can I say that? I'm definitely a Pro4 fan though, although we'll see how it stacks up to my beloved Rayspeed -JB

Nipple, I appreciate your effort, but you still haven't answered the question. I know what's available and what they do. I need to know the difference between them, individually - like, which are harder or softer, less or more resisance? Is "30" harder or softer than "60"?
