Those shims are seriously dialed. I highly recommend them. I've been running them on my X - 6 for almost 8 months, and they're really much better than using regular washers. This point really hit me as I've started running my X - 60 truck; I only have one set of shims and so I'm using the old washers on the truck and really missing the shims!

How can we get the Shimz in the US? The auction says UK only. I need 4 sets

Edit: never mind, I found them on Oople

Sometimes I do not do frustration well...

Here are several guys who say they admire our engineering and technological drive. We've got the best cars out there -- fastest and easiest to drive fast -- and some of the best drivers showing what they can do. Now I'm trying to find forum handles on the names in the Family roster...

I ordered my shimz from the guy on oople. It took a little while, but they are worth the wait. I probably should have ordered a second set for when the truck is released. Maybe Chazz can get them made in the U.S. and included in the kits. I love them so much more than the washers. I always seem to drop a washer at the track and end up wasting more time looking for it than doing what I need to

We'll try to get stuff up on our sites as quickly as possible.

The big news is that Hupo Honigl will be driving both his X - 6 (He won the Austrian Indoor Championship last month with it.) and a new prototype X - 60!

Of course the whole US Team will be there -- Brian, Paul, and Alex -- all entered in buggy, 4WD, and truck.
