Anyways, asked earlier but didnt get any response. How are you guys shimming the front driveshafts?

I ran Mugen in the past and that didnt have any shimming required so Im a bit confused.
The front axles you can moved a total of 3mm. I always run 1mm inside and the rest outside. Always make sure to have some axial play

Most of us put the RX in a balloon, tamiya actually makes special, extra strong balloons for this purpose. Also you need a special airfilter which doesn't get blocked by all the water which is sucked up by the foam.
Some different clutch settings and the right tires makes it quite fun to run in the rain, for me it's a good challenge to be fast in the rain.

Ran my car today with those items on it. Wow! What a difference. It was sooo planted! I was able to drop at least one second if not more off my lap time. A definite must for any 966.

I installed it for him all at the same time, as All the new upgrade parts works in conjunction to each other.
