Well it seems my little girly arms are being mocked now!!

I looked at my screwdriver the other day and my $2 cheapo screwdriver is wearing out after 2 years of racing!! Nothing lasts these days

I just bought a HUDY driver and it makes short work of driving those screws into the plastic!

Moral of the story? Buy good tools

As Gavin said i too had a bit of an issue while constructing my 3D clutch but i had to put about 2mm worth of shims behind the inner bearing. Has anyone who has built an RR or RR Evo encountered this and have any suggestions/reasons why this happens ?

i wont worry how much shim needed as long as you set the clutch right.

My 3D went together fine in this area. The instructions do not specifically require shims between the inner bearing and the adjuster nut/shaft. Why do you feel you need shims there?

To take out excessive play and most importantly to avoid the clutchbell from rubbing the clutchshoe during idle.

This is unnecessary in my opinion. I have never done this, and the instuctions from both Mugen and Kyosho do not require this. I have never had an engine flame out from this either that I am aware of.

Seems odd, anybody had experiences where they require this shimming?

it is kind of personal preference. do it if you think you need it and skip it if you have no problem without the shims.
