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.

Has anyone some more experience on the comparison between the B6D and B5m (FL) on loose clay with low/medium grip?

This car is faster and easier to drive than b5m lite. I'm on a b6d. I won my first rookie race at OCRC tonight on its maiden voyage. It's a keeper

Slash and used b5m lite didn't get it done for me lol

Thanks, had a look at ocrc and that's not a loose clay track for me
But good to hear. I think the advantage of the B6 inincreases if the track has more grip...

Ok so i sitting here putting together my nephews b6 it saids to use 2.5 toe in and 1* Anti Squat so that would be using the 0.5 pill now what about when using the Alum. D mount. We tried it with the stock D mount and put it on a Hudy set up gauge and the rear toe on the right was more then the left So we tried the stock D mount and the same Any help with this would be great Thanks

Other than being certain that both C-block pills are installed symmetrically, to maintain 2.5 toe, 1 anti-squat, put the center dot in the aluminum D-block.

The reference to remember is that:

center-dot on both the C and D blocks yields 3 degrees toe and 1 degree anti-squat. If you keep that in mind, you simply add or subtract values from that reference.

In your example, I have a B6 as well, (.5 out removes 1/2 degree rear toe) on the C-block and center-dot on the D-block, yields 2.5 degrees toe and maintains 1 degree anti-squat. Math checks out, all you need to remember is center-dot on both blocks = 3 toe. 1 anti-squat and adjust from there.

It gets confusing for some because with the alu D-block, you can also adjust values from there as well, whereas the plastic D-block is static at the center-dot.

So if your looking at the .5 pill there is also a dot on it that dot will tell you where the hing pin is going to sit right. After looking at the book again we have the .5 pill in the right way but do I use the pill 0* to give me centerNow on the D mount I want to use the 0* pill for center

I've found a pic of BT b6 and he has a pic of the rear and his .5 pills the one on the right is standing up right so you see the 5 the right way on the left the .5 pill is not the same way giving him 3* toe

I'm not too keen on the way the battery strap attaches, looks like we need a nut driver to remove the battery.

Sweet rig. Did you take the paint off the AE aluminum shock caps? If so, how did you do it? I also like all the other silver bits!

In that pic it definitely 'looks' odd but you need to pay attention to the dots. The hinge pin is moved further in by .5. Stock pin width is like the B5m with the GHEA +2 inserts. So you can alter it all quite a bit.
