The belt polished mine up, so it looks way nicer than having it ground down

randy.. im pretty surprised you dont have slop yet in your center spur gear/layshaft assembly. i had to shim that .5mm

now there's only a "tick" of slop/play left. just right.

for those wondering how much a "tick" is.. its this much.. --><--

Are you guys using the black plastic shims from Yokomo or metal ones from other brands? I noticed that the plastic shims are wider so when pushed againsts the bearings, they tend to hit the side bearing walls... you'll notice the sound is different too from the rubbing... (man I have way too much time in my hands... )

I just use the black plastic ones but leave a little slop, dont want it tight to where you're putting stress on the inner race anyway.

Kit setup and new tires...you'll be golden. the biggest dif is coming out of turns....way more stable. common comment is that it feels slow but cranks out good lap times.

Francis!!!

Glad you're getting back into electric, you nitro guy you! How is it going with the rest of JWF? Let me know when you'll be running the car (and where). Maybe we can hook up and practice together... I need track time on mine as well...

Stock setup is really good, but if you like super steering, my SoCal setup should be on the Yok USA site soon.
