Default Wheel Hex Shims

Does anyone know of the part numbers on any of the Shim sets for the wheels? The ones that go on the wheel hexes before putting on your wheels. I think there should be 0.5mm and 1mm thickness ones. Red Blue or Silver.

I posted them about 10-15 pages back or so. The number for the .05 mm silver shims are in the back of the 415 instruction manual.

I believe you ment .5 mm shims or 1/2 of 1 MM.

Nah, I have way too much schoolwork to do that. It would be awesome though.

and what about their duralumin pinions, are they also of good quality ?
thx
You have your 415 now?
Never had Kawada gears but the Xenon are very good too and I prefer white gears.
do you have a source for the Kawadas? The Xenon are a little easier to get. Also Yokomo and HPI are using them with the SD and Pro4 so you could get them as spares.

Regarding pinions I think as youre running modified only its really not necessary running any lightweight pinions as these will have more wear. Im running RW pinions now most time and they are very good. GM Racing and Robitronic have them here so it isnt very difficult getting them.

BTW
Are you coming to Schussental next weekend? Or do you go to an other race next time.

my 415 should be here on monday
rainbow ten sometimes has the kawada spurs in stock (thats where i bought my 415).
i think i stick with xenon gears than, you are right they look better than kawada spurs

unfortunatelly i cant't make it to schussental. i dont have much time left, because of studies

Ill be there. My home track has very similar traction alike Snowbird's, and Cleveland. Also it is the home of the '05 ROAR carpet Nat's. So we have a lot of time on carpet/foams....

That's my only problem, I dont get any practice on carpet/foams, last time I ran was in Febuary.
