I am trying the TF2 again, from everything I have read RC4WD has corrected a lot of the problems the older TF2s had out of the box.
I have just completed doing the normal stuff, opening up the axles, transfer case and transmission, checking for grease and putting Loctite on all of the bolts when they went back in. One must-do item from the older kits was to reverse the shims on the axle inputs, while they were apart I noticed that there was a shim on the outside, and no shim on the inside, is this the way they are built now, or am I missing shims?
So here is where I am at…

This weekend I’ll start putting the chassis together, and hopefully start working on the body as well. I have to relearn how to prep/paint a hard body, along with what paints to use, so I don’t think I’ll have the body in the booth this weekend.
After being chastised for not doing it, I have read through the tips/tricks pages, but any additional advise is more than welcomed.
