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.

Just finished building my B6. Has anyone gone from box to high grip carpet to test out the stock setup? Any observations?

Only upgrade I've done so far is the front bronze bulkhead and a PL Trifecta wing. Waiting on the body to be finished. Planning on doing aluminum steering links and servo horn, rear aluminum D mount, the steel plate under the electronics, sway bars if I find that I need them and aluminum wing buttons.



Running a Track Star 8.5 setup, Savox 1258TG, SMC 60C 4400mah Shorty, Airtronics MX-V radio. Front tires are low profile PL Wedges, cut rim, no insert and rear are PL Pin Points stock insert.

My Ti screws and turnbuckles finally came in. So I was able to complete my build.

Looks really nice. I'm new to this c,d mount & pill toe in system. Is 5 degree max toe and 1 degree min toe using pills in c and d mount? Thanks

The latest setups seem to have mored toward narrower inner pivots.(if i my decoder ring is working correct) This would help calm down the rear end a bit correct? I am running the laydown on a mid bite track. My skill level probably should have me using the standup but the corner exit speed makes it really hard to do. Most of the issues i was having was with fresh tires but it was a handful

So you have the B6 and not B6D? What track surface type and traction level you were racing on? What tires and inserts you running? Thanks in advance.

Literally built one that looks similar to this last week on my Dreamer. I also have one for the laydown and one the outs the fan down on the chassis. Good work. Cool seeing other people's 3D printed stuff

Strange, my Savox has the same issue.

Very nice...

A welcomed change on the new platform is just how much room there is for electronics, even when running the laydown gearbox. Pretty much any modern servo, ESC or receiver can be made to fit easily.

I really liked that I was able to fit my huge receiver in there and not need to upgrade to a radio that uses smaller receivers. Between the servo/esc wiring, on/off switch and esc cap I used up pretty much all the space and only have a small nook to fit the transponder when I rent one at the track.

Is anyone running a D with a laydown on medium grip clay? Wondering if it's worth a try or just go with standard trany.
