I see they come in 2 sizes...1.5MM and 2MM.

Look at them and think of a use for them. :) They have an inside diameter of 3mm, and outside diameter of approx. 4mm, and a thickness of either 2mm or 1.5mm, so think of a use for them 'cause I sure don't know. ;)

They may be for larger scales... or any other use you could possibly find for them :P How large are the posts on the MR03/02 PCB covers for the dampers?

Those posts are 4mm OD, so you would need a 4mm ID shim on them.

Typically, the usage I see for the M3x2.0mm shims is to shim out the axle to use LM differentials on standard MM rear pods. It's a pretty elegant solution for that particular usage as the LM diff is 2mm wider on each side (+4mm in total) than a standard diff if I remember correctly. That makes these shims perfect, no need to deal with stamped washers of questionable thickness.

I thought they were for the knuckles on the AWD chassis.

Also true, I'm so out of AWD that I didn't even think of that, lol...
