Post RC8 engine shimming

Hello. I need a quick run-through on how to shim a brand new B5 so that the pilot shaft isn't sticking about 2mm past the clutch bell... I have some small copper washers (losi shims) some medium silverish (losi) and some 7mm big ones... Please help, and any help is awesome!

-Erik

You can do 1 of 2 things. YOu can add shims behind the collet on the shaft or you can add shims behind the rear CB bearing. If you add them behind the CB bearing just make sure when you are finished that you cannot see the shoes between the CB and flywheel.

Every engine is different I have several speed engines all the same version all with the same clutch/ flywheel and they all shim out differently. Every engine is just a little bit different. Kyosho makes the beat shim kit I have seen they include shims in .1, .2, & .3mm this allows a perfectly shimmer clutch bell every time.
