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.

How often are you removing that nut? Is that an everyday occurrence or?

Build done, just need to hit the track to try it out and tune. I went 100% factory settings just to get a baseline. My b5m with lay down is set up to very different so I'm curious how it drives out.

Im running a 13.5 in blinky for pro stock. It's a small track like 16 seconds and faster and technical, I put in the 78 spur with a 32 pinion. Is that a good starting place?? Thanks

Default Chasis weights

I know these are not out yet, but what will they help out on. Trying to figure out if worth getting them for my b6 for indoor carpet Offroad. I am using the cav eos setup, but they only list total car weight on there setup sheets, they don't list what chasis weight or where they are putting them.

Because total car weight is more important.

That said, I believe they used both steel plates.

I may be wrong but I see it showing he was using the steel weights under servo and electronics.

When applying the 4 gear to the B6D, I see the specific Cover, Plate and Cases, but what you need for the idler gears?


Is it just 2 pieces of the same # 91717 these 26T ones?
