Tourque rods help stiffen the chassis and reduce flex in the main parts of the drivetrain I.E. the Diff case of the center diff case.

If you want to use the shims for the wheels, I just used the #8 washer that is mainly used in RC Airplanes. :)

...i need two #9 washers for my 1:10 buggy project but couldnt find any at the hardware store...there were 6s and 7s all the way through 12 but no nines :( Juju always try and HAVE the thing you want sized with you when you shop...makes life so much easier ;) I always seem to have SOME RC part in my bag or bulging in my pocket...you never know when you might find that missing link...
