are you talking about the aluminum shimms? if so, I use the same ones that I use to space out the clutch.

Default sterring servo

anyone ever had a 9411 servo just give out in the middle of a turn?
I pucked up a futaba 94151 I think it is.. will it suffice? could my saver be too tight?

Tye
I would have if it was able to get me up to weight. Either way Id still be running illegal weight and then would have no further room to work with. So With the hump pack , which is a 1000mah sanyo pack. Which Ive had ZERO trouble keeping fully charged all day. I can place tungsten weights around it to make a 160G battery area vs a 100G. All at a lower and centered place on the chassis. While keeping the top and outter portions still lightweight.

Hey guys

Just of curiosity how much thread have you got showing on your rear pivot ball to be at 200mm width, I have 3.8mm which leaves the universal just inside the diff out drive.
There used to be a lot less thread showing in the mtx-3, by the way Im using mtx-3 titaniam balls which makes no difference I guess.

Do you mean these kind of shims : .... its 5mm inside dia x 1.9mm thick

BTW, I use that shim for centax clutch shim, ie. before the clutchbell bearings. ( just info : ..... 5 x 1.9mm shim depends on collete's thickness. Narrow collete from Mugen is fine. Wider collete that comes from novarossi engines, is not. )

As far as i know yeah....A few of the factory drivers here in Australia have told me about them and one of our local drivers told me about them yesterday. I need them as when running the tyres i am they are carving up the rear uprights pretty bad and i think my mid corner speed is suffering badly cause of it.

I am not sure as i have never seen what they look like. All i know is they slide over the axle and fit behind the hex drive. Apparently they are 2 mm thick

you can use the shims from any old thrust bearing, it has de 5mm inner diameter needed or any shim with a max of 100 outer diameter, the thickness will determine the width of your rear
