You just have to look at 1/8" washers for screws. For the onroad clutch by accident I came to 5x10mm washers in 0.2mm and 0.25mm thickness with 100pcs in a bag for a low price.

Hi Bill, shipping is crazy expensive from Trinity or even US in general to Europe. And Trinity availability in Europe is nearly non existent anymore.
Appreciate if you have any further suggestions.

Both big thanks,

I believe that every brand/release of motor is different, and I agree that 6A is not the standard for all motors, but folks should contact the manufacturer for a respective brand to find out what the optimal current draw is for their motor. For example Trinity recommends 5.6A for the MonsterMax and 6.5A for the Punisher, I have not asked what they recommend for the XFactor. I know some team drivers in my area are recommending 3.2A for their Tekin motors.
