So after my weekend of breaking glass c hubs (thanks for the info guys, going with the TA05 hubs). I found a couple setups that are pretty stable starting points for me on medium grip carpet. As soon as I get some blank set-up sheets copied and get my USGT and 17.5 set-ups on paper, I'll load them up here, and if I can figure it out on Petite RC.

The set-ups need some refinement, but the cars are really drivable with only a slight on power push mid corner and the rear just a little squirrelly on corner entry.

Part number? I just bought a set of reinforced evo6 hubs. Are those going to hold up or shatter?😁

Stock EVO hubs are very brittle. If you don't touch the pipes, then you are golden.

When using the plastic gears in the diff. Do you guys sand the back of the cone gears a bit. My gear mesh is a little on the tight side. Oh didn't see a measurement on shock length. Anybody know?

Thank you. Also in building the diff. It says per instructions to use the metal shims on the outer portion of diff. But it looks like there is two metal ball bearings that look to be a similar size. Is that an option to use the regular bearings or stick with the metal shim inserts?

Sanding the gears because it is molded part is a "sand and fit til it's right" kind of thing for me. Depending on the part, one piece may take a bit more finishing than another. As for shock length I measure the shock shaft from the bottom of the lower shock cap to the plastic shock holder. I usually go 11.5mm on the short shocks.

I just sand the gears smooth on the back so that all the flashing is gone. The diffs are super smooth.

The shims are needed to hear the gear lash (mesh) correct between the ring (diff) gear and pinion (input gear) inside the gear box (bulkhead). Every car will be different. All four of my gear boxes are different on my two cars. It's trail and error. You want just a slight tick of play between the two gears.

I measure the shocks with a set of calipers inside the upper and lower eyelets "stretching" the shock. I run mine at 57mm length. That's a little longer than needed, but it allows for a wide range of droop setting to be used.
