AFTERSHOCK 8E ~ Newbie ~ New out of box help!!
I will first start off like an AA meeting and say, Hi, my name is Paul, and Im a Newbie....
(Everyone else) Hi Paul!
Okay, down to business. Currently, my Aftershock is on its way from Arizona and I am playing the waiting game until it gets here on Tuesday. Eeeek! Iknow.
Anyways, I posted a thread on BYT and asked for help regarding these, and about my possible options on things to do to her. (Yes, its a her.)

One reaccuring statement I hear from a few followers is to make sure that I check my gears before running and make sure that they are aligned and don't need to be shimmed.
A few people had this problem and had to shim up their gears.
I am posting this in hopes of getting a little direction on how to know if they need to be shimmed or not, and if so,the process of doing this. Even though I am fairly new to the RCcircuit, and have some knowledge on tearing things apart, I am man enough to admit, that I DONOTknow everything.
So if anyone has any suggestions on how I can determine the quality of the gears, if they need to be shimmed and anything other that they deem necessary before bashing, please let me know.
I would love to hear some ideas for upgrades.Ihave seen a few things and would like some more input. Appreciate any suggestions.
I have hear of the following;
-Stainless steel hex kits to replace screws,
- 12mm to 17mm hub conversions,
- Replacing with bigger batteries (volt and mah), most obvious.
THANKS FOR YOUR TIME AND LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING OF SOME COOL STUFF.
Feel free to post pics of your RedCats to show some love. Cheers.
