Will a spur with 8 holes compared to the stock 6 holes work? I know I won't be able to use 3 screws since they won't line up, but 2 screws 180 degrees apart line up. Just wondering if this will cause problems.

I just started building my 6.1 and I'm working on the rear diff. The manual is telling me to put shim 31348 on each outdrive, on both the outside of the diff case and on the inside of the diff case. That would require 4 shims.





The problem is I only got 2 shims in Bag B big enough to fit on the outdrives. Looking at the Diff Pin/Shim kit for the TC6 at Tower here:

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXBUWY&P=7



I got the 4 pins, 5 small shims (on the left), and 2 large shims (on the right). I did not get the medium sized shims (in the middle). Is the manual wrong, or was my kit shorted shims?

your missing the shims dude.

contact who you bought the kit from, and they will sort you out, or just buy the shim kit with the medium shims.

I found that if you open all the bags and sort through all the parts and organize them you may find what you need in a different bag. I ran into a similar problem with my TC6 build. Turns out the grouping of the parts don't always make sense.

Or... They are actually missing.

I finished the build (except the rear diff) and those diff shims are missing. I found what you said to be true for two 31532 screws (3x8mm) used to attach the rear body posts. Those were in bag "H" instead of bag "D".

Is there any reason why Xray pinions, for example #305932, do not fit a TC6?
