what engine, and how much nitro are you using. Usually the engine paperwork will tell you how much nitro the engine can safely handle the way it comes from the factory.

hi adsl,
more head shims mean less compression, less head shims mean more compression. when the motor is brand new, it can be difficult to turn over:
1. because of extremely tight fit with piston and sleeve.
2. heeps of compression.
by adding head shims you can get rid of some of this compression

also when running a higher percentage of nitro some people run more head shims.
i hope this helps.
