Default Shims for Protek servo in 22 2.0?

Does anybody know what shims to use with a Protek servo in a TLR 22 2.0? I'm only 246 pages into the 854 page thread and haven't come across the answer yet. The car is just about finished, but it looks like the servo may be rubbing slightly.

Thanks in advance.

No experience of the 2.0 only the 3.0 and 4.0 (I belI've they are v.similar) but you want to space the servo so the link from the servo horn to the steering linkage is at 90' across the chassis.

You probably are not going to find the answer in that thread. Maybe look in the manual for a 3.0 or 4.0 as they use the same bulkhead and servo mounts, and the Protek servos were not really a thing when the 2.0 came out so the 2.0 manual doesn't have the shims listed for Protek servos Alternatively, you could just try different shims until you find the combination that puts the servo in a spot so it doesn't rub. You can also remove a little material from the bulkhead (a common solution to this issue).

Thanks, I'll look at those manuals.

I've got to pull apart the gearbox and see if I missed a part. When I go to set the slipper like shown in the TLR video, it just slips the whole time and never lifts the front wheels. Even when the slipper is all the way tightened. A few kinks to work out, but I can't wait to see what a good driving car is like compared to re-issue and low end Tamiya cars.
