Do you have any links to these Kyosho skims? I want to pick up some to try.

How do I make sure my clutch bearings are shimmed properly? I put the clutch bell on with the shims I have always used and give the bell a spin. I make sure they spin easily and the bell doesn't move more than about 1/16" of an inch in and out.

Am I doing it right or is there a better way?
