Thats right don`t sand the gears with the shimming tech. just remove a small amount of flash if there is any..

The cost is as close to a new R2 kit chassis,upper deck, motor mount and shaft. that is all that is in the kit.

well I the diff itself is moved away from the small bevel gear. I don't think you can shim the small gear any other way than to move it closer to the diff so I kinda let that speak for itself
good to hear you have a quiet cuda, I really should get a set of those smaller shims myself and get to work on my car. It's a noisey SOB right now you can't hear the other cars for my cars tractor impersionations

I missed th epoint Dabe said no sanding was needed with the shimming technique, thanks for pointing that out, not that I have done it anyway

this new chassis is 3mm thick with 1mm removed where the bulk heads and motor mount and steering post are for LCG . this should be a kick a $$ chassis cant wait to run this baby.
