These parts should be for free....
In the future use this to secure any bearing which goes into a metal part:

Because the fit is too loose from the start the bearing is able to rotate in it's housing and starts scraping away material, creating even more play.
With the bearing fit this isn't possible and your bearings will last longer as well.
I'm surprised none of the RC companies advises this in their manuals, because it is very clear this is needed with the type of fit they are using (cold fitting)

It is All about money anyboby who has driven a kyosho car 1/10 or 1/8 thAT left to go to serpent will always say they like the car but deep down inside they know what car is better. Even some factory guys have told me they liked the kyosho better but I would say who

any why good luck to you sir!!! I can wait for the xray 8 scale to come out!!!!!!!! By far xray has the best quality followed by mugen.
My point is dont go into another cars thread and start dizzing it. Just from the other post I know you'r lieing. I dont go into the mugen thread and start dissing their cars, or tell people buy this car or that car. ABout money? Kyoshos are more expensive than the other cars. When i had my M3 I had to buy stiffening plates, adjustable swaybar, one piece engine mount all seperate from the car, all those parts came included in the 966 box, no expence added.
You're just one of those that jump from brand to brand and everytime the new brand is best thing from since sliced bread, not reliable as far as judging quality.

+1 Nitrodude about the option that serpent put on the 966 at no extra charge compare to motonica, kyosho cost more...the only upgrade parts i bought were the front stiff plate and rear aluminum bracket ... i only had problem with my build, i had to drill out the hole in my spur gears other than that im happy with the car

From the photo on the previous page you can see an extra cross car hole to couple up with the extensions on the layshaft bulkheads, when we get parts in hand we'll be able to determine any other differences.

Hi,

In process of rebuilding the car, and realised that the shim/washer behind the 2nd speed spur gear is missing.

How thick is this shim/washer? How critical is it to have it there?

6.0mm I.D. x 1mm thick, that is there to have the correct amount of end play for the 2 speed shaft and at the same prevent the 2 bearings to ride each other on the outer race.

How thick is this shim/washer? How critical is it to have it there? The shim/washer i am refering to can be found in the following link.
