Just bought a new steering link and found that the fit on the balls is way too tight. Is there a fix for this? Noticed the same thing on a new B5 with all the ball cups being tight and creating a lot of binding

What are the diff shims that are needed for the 3-gear transmission? I can't seem to find them on A-main... but I may be overlooking it

When I upgraded to the 3 gear a couple months ago it had a lot of play side to side of the diff, like a couple mm. So I need to shim it up. I've only run it one weekend as I've been at school and haven't been racing.

They are the ASC1733 heavy duty shims. Meant for the B44 series.

This will work better imo....plus they come in different thicknesses. The B44 series still uses std bearings where the new stuff uses metric...its close though.

What's the most motor you can run in a 3 gear factory lite and not compromise longevity too much? Can it handle a 13.5? A 10.5?

Thanks
