There should be wobble in the spur gear...that is how a ball diff works. Because the diff rings apply pressure to the diff balls and not the diff gear there will always be some play between the gear and the rings. I wouldn't worry about sanding the adapter.

OK I love my Shimizu 571/572 combo, and so far I've only used the inserts that came with them. Are other inserts better for Parking lot / prepared good grip asphalt?

How long do these tires last outside on asphalt?

Also I am considering getting some of the new Tamiya 1031/1032's and I wondered if they were truly the same? or perhaps even better than the Shimzu's Anybody used them since they came out?

I want to eventually get to the track in Aliso Viejo and I understand for a race you need tcs tires, but if they aren't the same as the Shim's I will just stick with what I know works for the parking lot. But if they are the exactly the same I figure I might as well get the Tamiya 1031/1032's
