Either that or we were out if that particular size in Purple when Jon ordered them...lol!
Yeah I thought of that when I bought my shims, but I've got a pair of calipers. And I didn't think it would've looked very good, with the other colours.

Turns out I was right!!!!

Yes, Donny was the one who came up with the outdrive savers.

And yes Adrian is right, I started ordering my shims color coded.

You can order them directly from Schumacher or if your local shop carries Schumacher products, they can order them for you.

Go to the product finder and type in "washer" and select Take Off as the manufacturer.

Not a stupid question at all. When you run a spool, the out drive wants to spread out in an impact. These outdrives don't really bend when that happens, they snap. The savers keep that from happening as easily. They're really easy to make. Take four old outdrive bearings, use a cutting wheel and cut the outer race off. The inner race will pop right out. Then when you install the spool, after you put your bearings on, slide the save over the outdrive, butt it against the bearing and put just a little drop of CA to hold it in place. (knock on wood) I haven't broke an outdrive yet.

If so what size is good .5mm for kickup? I am going to 2 degree caster blocks and may want a little kickup as well as a little antisquat in rear. Let me know if I am understanding this car better or not.

Yes, you have the idea. I have 1mm spacers under there though to get more steering. PW posted earlier that raising the pivot block 1mm for anti-squat gives 1.77 of anti squat. The same should be true for kickup. I would start with a 1.5mm shim for the front block and 1mm for the back block for kick up and work from there. That's one adjustment I haven't tried on this car yet. I've always just run the 4 caster blocks. Let us know how it works.

You can get the Pro Diff Rebuild kit part# U2629. If it's the part I think you're talking about, it should be in there.

Most of us have been using a 1mm spacer rather than a 1.5 On my current set up I have a 1mm spacer in the front and a 1.5mm spacer in the rear of the front arms to give the car .5mm of antidive. This worked killer at the parking lot track that I was at last weekend. I plan on trying it at the regular race track for the regionals coming up.
