I don't know the shim part #, but they only come in a bag with a bunch of other washers. You should be able to pick up any brand washers for it. They're .1 mm. The only thing to look for is the inside hole diameter being big enough.

Thumbs up

gentleman81
the article in xtreme rc from robbie collins says the A ackerman gives u less steering in the corner on tracks with very good grip, im running on a parkinglot track that tends to be a little slick in my opinion, and i had to fight my car threw the turns with the A ackerman?
I just put the C ackerman in and ill see what it does.

Gentleman81 hi, where can I watch the Robbie Collinsīs article?
In the web is possible?
Thanks

I have always used and liked the C ackerman. I find it gives just a bit less turn in, but carrys speed off the turn alot better. You can always tune the rear of the car to obtain your lost turn in.Stiffer sway bar stiffer spring or change the spacers in the rear of the car.

I run the B block. it works great for the parking lot track I run on. My car was so stuck tonight. I had the main won but I crapped a throttle servo 10 minutes into the 12 minute main. still ended up 3rd. but man the car was hooked. I guess I need to invest in some better servos. The one I fried was a hitec hs645mg. Any suggestions in a new one?

No they're evidently not...I recently had a Fut 9450 servo crap out on me, of course this was the 3rd or 4th car it has been in, I know Futaba will fix it up ... for a nominal fee I'm gathering up all my busted servos to send to them for repair.

Try going to the Kyosho PDS2344 fet servo, try Tower Hobbies, I think they are around $100.00 these servos have like 180 oz. of torque

its funny because the steering servo i am running, I had in my old car(ntc3) since day 1. it is a z590m jr servo. but I am on my 4th throttle servo in less than a year. I had a hitec 645 mg in there and it crapped on me too. it is supposed to have like over 100 oz of torque. man this is getting irritating. I hope my reciever isnt getting jacked up again, because that is what caused it last time it was glitching like this. I need to get rid of this jr crap. time to get an m8
