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 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

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.
I 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.
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
