Is there any adjustments or anything for the front pinion gear and drive gear somehow I keep eating up these gears and it's getting to be a pain and expensive this will be the third set going through

Inside the front cover
Did you use the factory shim next to the bearing? Thats how you take up lateral play.Inside the front cover
Also in your first photo of the diff: whats the line going around it,looks like a cracked diff housing.
My front and back diff had them as well as a spare i bought,but i can't find a part no. for them in my manual!Well I don't have one I never did or if I did it wore away, do you have a part number for it I'll order it up when ordering a main gear and drive gear again
Its probably .15mm or less,very thin and my Kraton is a V2.doesn't show in the manual,might need to contact Arrma to get a number.There easy to loose as they stick to the bearing.i don't think i would be able to have enough room for a shim in there neither for or rear has them i tore them both apart a few times and def not in there unless its like a very thin shim im talking 2mm or thinner im not sure ill look at my manual its in the book how old is your kraton?
I used xray 5x15x0.3mm shim in the bottom of the diffcup...satisfiedI too would like to know what part number .
The Kraton uses spiral gears and uses a shim,support might not know?Please post the pn if you can.Well I called support and they are going to send me an entire new front end to see how that goes he said there are two different gear cuts sprial and straight. the straight cut gears use shims and the sprial does not but he is sending some just incase so once I get them I'll post the part numbers as long as they have it on the package
The gentleman said it depends on the age of the kraton he said the new ones all use the sprial and shims. he said you shouldn't need them with the spiral cut gears at least that's what he's saying so I'll wait an see should have it by the end of the weekThe Kraton uses spiral gears and uses a shim,support might not know?Please post the pn if you can.
Shims come in various thicknesses of usually .1 mm - up to .2.
They are 16mm OD x 13mm ID and again, various thickness.
I managed to get a .1mm tekno brand shim in my rear Typhon case(I have Associated, Team Durago, and Tekno, all same OD and ID size, just different thickness). The front case was tighter and I could not get one in there.
It all depends on manufacturing tolerances. One case might be loose enough to fit a couple shims, one tight without any.
You can find shims from most of the favorite online places and possibly your local hobby store.
would you happen to have a part number for the shims you used on the outside at the bearings are the bearings 18mm i found some shims that i think will workI had lots of play in my Talion diffs and no shims came installed or in the box, luckily had some HPI shims from my Trophy that done the job nicely....you will end up eating gears if too much play is there thats for sure.
On another note i also shim the two bigger internal diff gears aswel as i had massive amounts of movement in the diff outdrives.
Those are shims for the internal diff gears which are also a must as there was huge play in the diff outdrives....(mind you newer v2 editions may have solved this)would you happen to have a part number for the shims you used on the outside at the bearings are the bearings 18mm i found some shims that i think will work
they are 5x18x0.2mm
