    Shimming diffs - how tight?

    How tight do you shim your diffs? When I shim one of my diffs I can either use one shim less than in Thomas P:s fantastic video about bulletproof diffs making it feel smooth like butter when turning the outdrives (is that the correct term?), OR I can use the exact same amount as Thomas, and I...

    Outcast Out drive bearing shim !!

    Found a fair bit of play left and right with the diff in the rear gearbox case today. Does anyone know what size the shims are on the outdrive bearing that come stock on the rig I think I might need to double or triple them up. A link would be mad. Thanks Cheers !!!:)

    F/R Diff washers?

    I just got done rebuilding/ changing all of my diff fuild on my Outcast. The rear diff only had three factory installed washers inside. When I opened the front diff I found five! Just curious if anyone else has a similar story. I did check 10x to make sure.

    Kraton All the world is shimming their diffs......

    It appears that the entire world is shimming diffs right now. I've been trying to find team durango diff shims TD310475 but they are simply unavailable anywhere on the planet. Anyone know of a substitute? It's pretty frustrating.

    Outcast Diff Shim Heads Up

    Just thought I would give everyone a heads up that not all of the diff shims are the same thicknesses. TD310475 sun gear shim - .007" TD310476/Arrma satellite gear shims - .006" Mugen E0206 sun and satellite gear shims - .010" I know a lot of you use a total of 6 satellite shims, 2 on one side...

    Outcast Outcast Diff Shimming

    There's been a lot of discussion about how the Outcast's diffs need to be shimmed. I have an Outcast on the way, and I've also purchased some the shims recommended. Can anyone give me guidance about which gears need shimming and how many shims of what thickness are recommended? Thanks.
