There is a clip of Adrian's last interview he gave before leaving Schumacher. It is very insightful. I am sure Adrian will be missed but his voice lives on in this clip. Should be on the bottom right of the screen. It is seperate from the regular program. www.rctvlive.com Hopefully they will have the Mi3 on soon!

On the lay shaft, the black piece that seperates the small belt from the large belt, is that supposed to move freely from side-to-side before the belts are attached?

Also, for the shocks, I noticed the o-rings that come with the kit look identical to the Tamiya o-rings, are they the same?

Thanks.

1. Do not over tighten the screws that hold the spur gear on. Just get them snug. If you crank them down they will deform the spur gear and it will look like a potato ship...not good.

2. I use a counter sunk washer and screw to secure the end of the lay shaft. The stock button head and washer will work perfectly but my way looks cooler.

3. The layshaft assembly has a little side to side play. I used one 0.1mm shim out of a Take Off 5mm shim kit (TT302) to tighten it up a little. I still have play but it is a bit less. Note that you must have some play. If you shim out all the play its less efficient and if you pick up carpet fuzz or some dirt it can cause binding.

yes for the layshaft - it should be able to move from side to side.....

As for the orings - not really sure, but i know many shock orings out there are the same....
