Charts for Quick reference:

















1) put inner bearing in hub
2) slide large shim over axle all the way up to the back of the axle
3) slide axle/bone into hub carrier
4) slide small shim onto axle through hub carrier
5) push outter bearing into hub carrier

using that i'm able to put my normal male silverback gorilla wheel nut tightening job and there's no binding. in the pictures that come with the shims (the pic socket posted) it seems like they want you to slide both shims onto the axle before sliding the axle into the hub carrier and like i said, that doesn't work.



I've traditionally done the diff screw head on the left side (driver's side), but have since switched to the Right side (passenger side) regardless of transmission type (3 gear RM vs 3 gear MM and 4 gear MM).

Kdub (Kurt Wenger, former AE designer) had this to say on the matter:

The right rear is the way the AE manuals state (or used to state). It really shouldn't matter since you go around turns both left and right.

Quick question first...which hole is correct for rear inner ball stud mount on B6? Two different pics in manual, (middle/outer) and set up sheet different again. (Inner!!)

Re manual a few other things here too...and have checked online version and same as my printed copy.

A few screws haven't matched manual, but mostly I've found screws are a more useable/correct length in bags, wrong in manual. Good example steering ball joints...manual says 6mm, box had 8mm...6mm wouldn't allow for any spacers if you needed/wanted.

Good build though so far; I'm 2/3rds in.

The sets are so unnecessary. It comes with green rears. Pick up white and grey Maybe black. I've never needed anything else on dirt.

Just start with the middle hole. It's all going to get changed anyway when you tune to your specific track.

With the laydown in the B6d last week at Amain most of the team used middle hole with 2mm. Brent and a couple others tried the outside hole and I think stayed with it.

Test and try for yourself.

I didnt specifically follow the bag number closely.
I just checked the B6D manual. Looks OK, screws look about right, but the B6 manual definitely has errors.

You're supposed to use M3x14's for the rear of the transmission into the rear camber block, B6 says M3x8, not sure M3x14's even got shipped with the kit, I used some M3x12's I had lying around.

Bottom of transmission B6D instructions are correct (4 M3x10, 2 M3x12). B6 is wrong (6 M3x12).

Just finished wiring mine. I'm by no means good but i've found I don't like the battery strap or the waterfall for clean wiring.
