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.

The manual shows 0 but the setup sheet in the back of the manual shows +1, there is a couple other discrepancies between the setup sheet and the step by step part of the manual

Regardless of what the manual tells you to build or the setup sheet. It's just an adjustment for tuning to different track conditions. If you're running the Standup or laydown on medium to high grip. Start with +1, that's been a great feeling so far.

Ive tried all 4 positons on my home track which was medium to low grip indoor clay very dry and dusty, using the standup gearbox. +1 turned a single faster lap, the 0 position felt the best and was only 1-2 tenths off on fast lap.

I also ran at the JC summer indoor nats using the laydown and +1 was by far the best. +2 just felt sketchy and too free.

Also remember, each time you raise the hub add .5mm rear droop to the rear shocks to keep the static shock feel the same.

Default B6 kit build

Anybody having problems with missing parts on their B6 kits? I am in the process of building one right now and I have parts missing.... Hopefully they are tucked in one of the plastic bags in the kit.

The gear diff was a pain to build too. I ended up not using the outdrive shims because when I close the transmission case.. it binds and the whole assembly would not turn.
