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.

sweet, Jake Mayo is running Kyosho and Yokomo springs with 30 wts

That is exactly my spring setup for my B5M. Do you have all pins and gears in the diff with the stock 4K or are you running Jake Mayo's setup too?

Finished my B6D build! Everything went great, no missing parts!
Used the Brass stuff and some weight do match it my B5M FL setup for our loose clay track.

Maybe interesting:
B5m FL:
F 550g
R 1046g
(34/66%) and overall of 1596g

B6D
F 566g
R 983g
(37/63%) and overall of 1549g

Both cars shared the same electronics on the scale (HW V3.1, Savox 1257TG, 4200 Shorty and HW Fleta ZX 7.5T)

The numbers let me think of quite a loose rear

Has anyone had any issues with the steering system? I have the aluminium steering rack and set up up per the manual with a ko low profile servo. With the servo horn at the 90 Mark, the rack is off center to the left. I took it apart and rebuilt it bit no dice. Any ideas?
