Default head shims for high altitude

I just bought a RB blast v-15 and am trying to find out if I need to remove any head shims. I live in Colorado at a little over 5000 feet. I use VP 30% nitro fuel and it is in a Losi buggy.

You'll want to run less head shimming.
How much? Perhaps 0.1 - 0.2mm less.
For the best advice try this:
