I'm not an expert but in my experience it's usually best to stick to however many the engine came with. There's usually a reason for the number of shims put in from the factory.

No, posts about engines & engine parts/accessories should be in the engine sub forum section at the top of the nitro offroad section.

Stick with what the factory made the engine with & you should be right.
