Here you go. One tip, a set of digital calipers will help you make sure your car is dialed the first time you hit the track. Check the inserts for proper turnbuckle assembly lengths.

Just a heads up, Josh Wheelers setup is pretty aggressive, I found it hard to drive myself, which is weird because pretty much the only differences between our setups are slightly different shock setups.

Maybe you could drop him a line and see if he'd post an updated setup sheet?

What clutch system is he using?

Im kind of confused about how the front and rear diff should be shimmed. Does there have to be shims?
I put mine togheter and i thought the gear mesh was good, no slop and it didnt feel like it was binding or heavy to move.

Do i need to shim them a little bit so i get more clearance between the pinion and diffgear?

If they feel right then dont sweat it. In my build I only used 1 shim on the rear diff. 808 diffs like a little bit of play. Dont shim them too tight or it will cause issues like too much heat and premature bearing wear. I used 1 shim on the ring side of the diff to push it a bit closer to the pinion. I think each one will be a bit different.

You want to shim you diff (or not if its the case) to where you have a little more slop than you're comfortable with. The spring steel is very hard and the only time I've seen it break is when the mesh is too tight.

Stupid question here, but how are you guys putting together and taking apart your shocks, on my Losi the bottom of the shock was hexed and they supplied a tool, the xray shocks are smooth and I was wondering how to grab them and not scratch the threads. what tools?

thanks

I think he's talking about the ball connector on the bottom of the shock shaft.
Just use a pair of side cutters on the threaded part of the shock shaft.
Page 30 of the 808 manual.

I'd go with the Ofna, because I have used it and I know it is durable.

To put the ends on the shock shafts I like to put a towel around the shaft and clamp the shaft in a vice. Thats about the only way I've been able to get a good enough grip on the shaft to thread the thing all the way on. Huge pliers and a towel work too.
