Default diff rebulding 8ight-t

Hi Guy I am going back into the rear diff on my 8ight-t . I think the ring and pinion gears are skipping under hard acceleration . I was hoping you guys could tell me if its ok to shim them tighter and maybe someone could point me in the right direction as far as shimming goes and what to use . Thanks

I would shim them as tight as you can without binding. Usually I will go for no play or very little play. After shimming the gears may feel a little tight but should wear together in a few minutes of driving. If they dont you need to re shim them. If the gears are really worn it would be worth it to replace them.

Funny enough I haven't run it yet. I'm going to program the ESC & bind the TX/RX tonight... then painting the body later this week & I'm goin to give it a shot this weekend.

I can't wait to get this done and post pics

I'm like a little kid with this stuff I'm excited for you and I don't even know ya ..lol. I hope it turns out well and is everything you want it to be . Mines getting close and Ive been able to run it and its a absolute blast . I cant wait until Ive got it where I want it and I can stop feeling like there's more to straighten out . Good luck to you on your build keep us posted on the results .
