Default What is the shim clearance on a LRP 28 on 30%

I need to know what is the min. and ihe max clearance or the shim thickness for a LRP 28 spec 2. What does it do to the performance of the motor to have the head shimed closer or further away from the sleeve.

Check out this link for motor shimming I had asked the same question for a .21 I dont belive there to be realy difference with the motor size. And the less shims you have the more comprasion the motor is suppose to produce. But as a rule of thumb always have one shim. Hear is the linke I hope it helps.

Motor shimming?

to be safe an have good run times get a mic and the shims should total to 0.280mm u can go as low as 0.275 for more power but i would actully recomend 0.300 for beter run time and longer life
