actually you dont want to do that. leave the slop in there, once you get out on the track and get it dirty it will tighten up. mine did. if you shim it too tight it will start to bind once you start running it. and that too tight is what feels just perfect on a new clean kit. just a heads up.

You definately don't need to shim the car. It has those tolerances designed into it for the dirt etc. that will accumulate. This isn't an onroad car, they get dirty.

I know on my 1/10 scale stuff it runs way better when it is more tight. I dont put bind into any parts, just take out slop.

i completely understand where your comming from. im running this car though and i can tell you that a lot of the slop comes out once it gets dirty. there is still very slight for and aft play in my arms, but nothing that i would shim for. if you hop over to the sgrid, gene hickerson has been running his for a while and has quite a bit of play and hasnt noticed any degradation of performance. id try it stock first for a weekend, if you still want to shim it after that, its pretty easy to take the arms off and do so. im only trying to help with the knowledge if gained from running the car for the past month.

I was just very surprized to see the slop there, I've run propably 7 or 8 1/8 buggies over the years and none have had slop like this, I figured that the XRay would be the tightest. I pushed the eccentric toe mounts forward to where there is no slop, we'll see if it stays that way on the track.

Unfortunately one of the steel brake plates was bent in my kit, I tried to sand the pad smooth but it was just too crooked. Gotta wait for another one to arrive from HK before I can get the car together and goin.

texracer im sorry to hear your so unsatified with your 777 but it actually does make me glad ive decided to hold onto my K2 untill next year

the guys ive talked to about it are sponsored drivers but i dont think either is kyosho sponsored

like i said i dont own 1 so i was just going off what ive been told but i would say the sources were credible

and if youve given up hope on that 777 i'll give you $100 bucks for it
