Maybe I missed it in this thread but does anyone have the "formula" for shimming the gears on the TB04 Pro 2?

It would be appreciated if somebody can help.
All the transmissions are shimmed the same. Add all you can between the outer side of the input shaft and the outer bearing. You will know when it's too much because you can't get the roll pin on.

The car needs to be too tight when you unload and conditions are green.

In USGT I'd be inclined to run Yokomo pink and blue springs. They are class legal and softer than the HPI/Tamiya springs. If the car cases (bottoms out) before the tire develops enough grip to hook an edge and tip it, it almost saves you. Don't let it get too soft though!

I'd also consider gluing up the sidewall of the outside front tire from the wheel to halfway into the letters on the sidewall. Only that tire for now. When I ran on the Gravity carpet tires at IIC I had to glue both sides of the fronts for the same reason.

I'd also consider raising the roll center in the front by removing all the spacers under the suspension blocks, if you haven't done that already. If that is successful, and you need more, I'd add a half a mm under the front inner camber link.

In any case, post back what you learn. I'm interested to hear.
as a follow up the one step increase in spring rate and heavier oil did calm the car down and eliminated the mid-sweeper dig I was experiencing. Handling feels much more normal now. Front tires also CA'd on the sidewall. Went a bit too light on the front diff fluid so waiting on a shipment from Gravity. Stock, the car has so much front end bite it kills the balance. Fun project so far for a $189 car.

My experience is that the aluminium still need shimming
You can save money by just shimming the stock steering. That's the route I took.

Got one ready for paint. I'm looking forward to running it, but I'll most likely save it for TCS. Until then, I'm using the HPI 350z/Greddy.

Is there anyone here running the shocks in "laydown" inboard position? I am wondering if it makes a difference good or bad. I'm considering getting a TB04 for the sole purpose of running the shocks inboard so that I can mount really low profile bodies (Lambo, Ferrari, etc.).

You don't really need to. The pro comes with lower profile shocks. I had a Carrera GT body on mine before I decide to sell it. For just fine

Ok, so is there any advantage to running the shocks inboard?

None that I know of, I only know of the disadvantage; which is, more additional linkage that can lead to more slop in suspension. It's also harder to set up and keep even from left to right.
