The shim has to be small enough as not to block ther piston holes correct? Would u say those motor shims might be about .5mm thick

Get with it slacker. Full time job, 2 part time jobs and racing. You should be able to test whenever you want, right?

Who u caling slacker slacker, I can top that. First I work the grave yard shift. Come home sleep for 3 hours then get up and take care of my son 4 years old. Then i take my two daughter 12 and 14 to their sports practices when they get home from school. I am the assistant coach for my oldest daughters traveling soft ball team. So on the weekends when I get off work at 6:00 am in the morning then I get back in the car by 6;40 and down the road at least two hour drive to the game. Usually get home by 8:00pm with out any sleep. Then do it all overt again on sunday.Oh did I mention that I also work an extra 36 hours a week on top of my normal 40. I try to make time to go racing but I'm not as fortunate as others who have time to "TEST" like u say. This was my first post on this site did'nt know I would offend anyone Just asking for a little help from a fellow photon owner

Yeah. I was busting on EJ. Besides having a full time job, he works TOP USA and imports for Solaris. Believe me, I'm not calling anyone out to compare work schedules. I've got it pretty good right now.

don't think you'll get a .5mm shim in there. I think I usually use .010-.020 or something. just experiment till you get the slop out but can still get the e-clip on.

Max shim would be .3mm, I tried thicker and ended up having to grind down what I had laying around, would not fit until I hit .3mm, and that was a snug fit so I'm guessing you could go a shade thinner maybe.

And I missed my second chance to have some track time last night, track was a wash out with rain, which sucks cause my new tyres had just shown up, so I would have had some grip, and I think most things on the car have been sorted now.

I used .3mm as well. Kyosho has a shim kit that contains washers with the perfect ID and OD. It includes shims .1, .2, and .3mm thick. I'll find the part number to the kit. I have the receipt here somewhere.

Speaking of shims.....Are you all shimming the steering knuckle slop out in the c-hubs, or just leaving them lose?
