Me too, both car and hair. I think I am going for the creamsicle look on the car, a few more strategically placed parts and it should be there.

Default reality check...

Building the TE with the new gear diff. The assembly comes with two smaller shims that appear to go behind the two planetary gears. The diagram does not mention them, so I didn't put them in. I did a dry fit and it seemed tight when I did use them. I didn't see any reference to them in the manual addendum either.

Just want to confirm that they aren't used, or what might they be used for.

I didn't use the small shims either since the instructions didn't show them as being used. Maybe they are used when the diff starts to get worn and develops slop.

Mike or Martin, any word on the Exotek top decks or a comparison of the Exotek chassis and the 2.0 serpent chassis?

I have a probleme with my s411 TE on the left side my wheelhex and CDV getting really hot after 1 min, it's like the bearing sits a bit to deep in the steeringblock and after fixing the wheel the hex is rubbing the steeringblock.
is there any quick fix or is it better to just replace the steeringblock or can it be another problem.
thanks

Could you sand the face of the steering block down till you get clearance for the hex. I'd still be looking at getting a new one, but the sanding should get you going.
