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.

[QUOTE=abailey21;14603045]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.

looks great, I don't like the battery strap either for low profile plugs.

Shouldn't be long before a carbon fiber battery strap is available.

So I was at the track last night and a B6 was running there (mid to high bite clay track). I talked to the driver and he said the car is pretty easy to drive compared to the B5M (I was having a hard time keeping up with him) .... very easy to manuever around traffic and fast in the corner. The only thing that he was complaining about that the car is so light at the rear that the rear was fish tailing a bit. He thinks he needs more wait to tame the rear end. What do you guys think and the solution to his problem?

Default B6 Hybrid

This is setup for my B6 Hybrid
I think the best options for setup unless your carpet only is:
Buy B6D + laydown gearbox it will give you lots of options.

I am not the best driver, but after 1 race night, 1 practise to setup i qualified 2nd fasted for the night and placed 3rd in final
I am almost a 1 second faster than my b5m lite.

I have listed my setup and some pics to show weight
I will update with video and more info soon

This setup is very easy to drive on our local track.

hey everyboddy

one of the guys at my track at speed rc in mooresville, nc was running the b6d. He put a laydown transmission in it didn't even try the stock tranny that came with the car. he said that is the ticket you need. he said with the b6d with laydown tranny he said he cornor faster, and he felt the car jumped better. The accleration of this car with the laydown tranny is amazing.

He also set the fastest lap time with this car at the track. he said opitional weights are not needed for this car to run on clay.
he ran a 7.5 motor in it, with out of box setup on clay track.

here is a link to the footage I recorded

This is my thoughts as well, i went B6 then got B6D front arms and shock tower. I think i like the gear diff.

But my gear diff out drives wobble, is this normal?

i just saw a b6d with laydown transmission destroying it ON AN OUTDOOR TRACK with holeshots and ribbed fronts. I don't get it. He had the same traction as I did with my standup XRAY xb2 with 4 degrees toe. How?

I talked to Eric at the track and he actually said..the B6 is like half the Xray and the Yokomo. ... looks like the B6 is the car to have right now to go fast. I really think that it's so easy to drive a B6 if you have been running the B5 platform. It has loads of steering and super planted in the corners.

BTW... how do you measure your toe-in? The only toe-in gauge I know is made by RPM.

Toe in frequently set by pills in fr/rear hanger. B6 has way more droop than xb2.
