The shimming is quite simple, you need to get some Tamiya shims that will fit on the small bevel gears, same size as the bearings and 0.1mm thick. When you come to shim the diffs you work out how many they need and then fit them all in the one side so the diff gear is moved away from the small bevel gear, creating a loose mesh. Then you use the Tamiya shims to remove any play the small bevel gear has in the shaft holders, depending on which version of small gears you have will decide how many shims needed. You put them on before the bearings so the gear is actually pushed closer to the diff, and you'll probably need two shims to get the right fit. The newer gears seem to only need one, a slight design change at the factory, and aparently the old versions from the R1 need three shims.
This is all thanks to Dave, I'm still waiting on him to tell me what part number the Tamiya shims are though but I've been waiting on him to tell me other things for longer......
Actually Dave was using Kyosho shims, he posted the part # in the origional how-to post.

Default KO Servo

For those running the KO Servo,

Did you guys have any problems mounting a KO servo? it seems that the PDS2143 is a little too big unless I clip the ears and file down the side or else it'll rub on the shaft. What other servo are you guys running?

I was under the impression you had to do that with any of the servos you use. I know I did on my futaba when I owned the car.

You will need to cut off the top ear on the servo to make it fit.

I knew clipping the ears was a must, but not filing down the side of the case...Hmmm...

I didn't have to file down my case, maybe just shoe goo it to the chassis so you can move it over a little bit.

Default rc-zombies

rc-zombies - I have a job for you that could benefit the R2 arena

Can you compare the axles on the R2 to the axles on your SD. I think we might be running the same stuff as the SD is except for the diameter of the front axle is 6 rather than 5. If the axles are the same length, we can benefit by going to a larger front bearing (5x10 rather than 6x10) which should last longer... and Square makes titanium axles

The car shares other parts from Yokomo, lets pray this is one of them.
