Anyone tried a different shimming than suggested in the manual?
As soon as i got the car i shimmed the diffs and bevel gears differently, there was far to much side to side play in the diff and the bevel gears had a load of play in. First i shimmed the diff so it only have a very tiny amount of side to side play in it so it did not bind up the bearings, then i did the same on the bevel gears. Then i put it all together in a gear case and altered the shimming side to side untill i had a very smooth drivetrain with no binding or back lash in the gears.
The drive train is so free now and shud get even better when the ceramics turn up from Bruce at www.RC4Less.com
I ordered them earlier and they have been shipped already, you cannot beat that for service. Even ordered a set for my 415 at the same time as well.
