Thanks JR! Do you know if you are using 2mm or 2.5mm bearing on your QteQ setups?

I just took a little closer look at mine and can better see what you did now.

Betting you used the 2mm thick center bearing, as its about the same thickness as the spur. I you had used the 2.5mm one, there would have been a gap between one or both of the AWD diff shims and the spur.

Went ahead and did mine like yours and hope it works better. Will have to let the CA set for a while... It was pretty stressful applying CA so close to the balls inside the bearing, but I think I kept the glue out because it still spins freely.

Thanks Junior!

mine is with the 2.5mm bearing then. I have the space between the shim and the spur on both sides since i centered the bearing... once i had the shims in place and the glue was dry i then filled in the gap with a small amount of additional glue...

fwiw... i sanded the spur, bearing and shims to ensure the glue would maintian its bond... i ahve been running all three diffs this way for some time now and have rebuilt them multiple times and have not had a sigle shim come loose...

this application works wonders for me and keeps the shim centered perfectly...

i also did this on the reflex car that i built for kevin from action and he ran the car all day at the east coast districts and loved it..

try it... you may just have to add another washer shim if you find there is still to much play... it should work fine though...

We're racing tonight, so I will through it in a diff when I get to the track. Wondering if you encountered an issue with the AWD shims. The ones I have (don't know what brand) are not perfectly flat. I didn't sand them like you did, and I wasn't sure what orientation would be best, curved out like (spur) or curved in like )spur( . Think I ended up with (spur( . Any thoughts on this?

when i glued mine on i then sat them with the shim down on my pit board and then put a weight on top so when the glue dried it dried perfectly flat.. it worked perfect... then i just did the other side the same way..

The car that Junior built for me for the East Coast Districts at MHS is absolutely sick. I absolutely love it. It is an all Reflex Car and I couldn't have been any happier with the way he built it for me Thanks Junior

I used a 2mm bearing centered equally inside the spur. I then glued one 6x8mm shim to the side that is closest to the right wheel. The left qteq hub was not sanded flat to the diff ring so it prevents the spur from rubbing that side. Everything stays centered now.

I used this shim set. http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...etric-Shim-Set
