Which spacer? The ones between the old bearings? If its not used then why is it in the WC diagram?

It does look like a shim. According to the other diagrams. Maybe just a regular 0.1 shim to prevent the smaller bearings from touching the big one

Thats just a shim for you to create the "gap" on the clutch. The WC clutch does not use shims between the bearings, or atleast I run mine without any shims between bearings. Your supposed to be using a total of 3 bearings (2 of the same size and a bigger one).

I am looking at getting a Serpent 720 09 and was wondering 2 things...

1) What servos ya'll using?
2) What motor ya'll using?

Or.... should I wait until the "new version" comes out... or is there a new version.. I have ben looking and read many things...

I am been racing electric the last 2 or so years and have not been in the nitro motor loop for a bit..

Thanks..
