Hey bro,

If I use the stock spur gear I will use a 1mm spacer, if its 48t, I will use 2mm spacer. If not the spur gear stick out to much if feel.

On my tki3 build the stock spur is sticking out the bottom of the chassis a hair. The manual says to shim for the optional spur It looks like I need to shim with the stock spur too. Did I do something wrong or is this the case?

If they're the same as the shock boots Tebo uses (and they do look similar), they're the old 777 boots, IFW154. I just got a set myself, gonna build a set of shocks with them and see what they're like compared to the accordian style boots.

I tried these last year, when they were initially released and had no end of problems. I couldn't even manage to get my shocks to blead properly. I rebuilt them several times and from all 4 shocks, could only get 1 of them to blead properly when using the new -09 bladders.

I changed back to the original bladders, IF346-03 and instantly all the problems I was having disappeared. I've no idea why I couldn't get them to blead right with my shocks but I tried 2 different packets of the -09 bladders and same problems with both packs, so it would seem the problem was definitely caused by the -09 bladders but others have used them successfully. Anyway, I've never had any problems using the original style -03 bladders, so that's what I recommend.
I just switched out the bladders this week to the older style and have to agree with the above. Just was never happy with the way the HC bladders caused the shocks to bleed. Once I went to the dome style, it was much easier to get the feel I wanted in the shock on the bench. Though I have not been on the track yet with the change, I anticipate it being more to my liking.

Pete, try Cody Kings bumpy loose setup. I think it's posted on the infernosonly website. If you need the orange and yellow springs I have them.

However, that's not to say some centers have not broke, they just are not as well voiced...

I checked with customer service and they told me that the IF413 outdrives for the center diff have never been returned broken to Kyosho America since the release of the MP9. The results from our team drivers indicate that the replacements for the over-hardened ones included in the kits, are working fine. But, if you want an iron-clad solution, I believe the IF413 outdrives are also an option.
