I was told that 3-4 shims in these engines is common for using typical 1/2a fuel with 20-25% nitro. From the reading I've done, these engines with 0-1 shims is suitable for 5-10% nitro.

The piston seal is not the best and compression is not very good. I will pull all but one shim out and check it again.
