OfficinaRC Tungsten Smart Shims

OfficinaRC have added these new tungsten Smart Shims to their existing aluminium and brass Smart Shim offerings. Obsessed with quality and attention to detail, OfficinaRC say they have added the Tungsten version as a follow up to the successful introduction of the aluminium smart shim. OfficinaRC have applied a laser cut on the side of the shim in order that you can immediately recognise its size so you will no longer have any doubts and no longer need a caliper. The material used, tungsten, plays a fundamental role, increasing the weight by 8 time over the Alu Smart Shim so at the lowest point it can consequently lower the centre of gravity and make the car even more stable. Measurements are defined by solid lines with each line indicating millimetres. Offered as a pack of 8 shims they are available in 2 sizes: 3x6x1mm and 3x6x2mm.  The Tungsten Smart shim are designed by OfficinaRC in Monaco and made in Italy.
