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.

Servo is slightly shimmed up to clear the wire.

Has anyone referenced this spring chart from petitrc? I've found 3 kyosho charts and all three differ from one another in regards to spring rates and the color spring that it is.
http://site.petitrc.com/reglages/BuggyBigBoreSpring.pdf

Or does someone have a link to an accurate kyosho spring chart?

Schumacher yellow premounts. Mini pin rears with stagger fronts.

I heard about the nightmare of gluing carpet tires so I went with these.

Okay. I ran my B6 tonight at the track and when the track dries out a bit. The rear just breaks loose and loses traction when I gun the buggy exiting a corner. What should I do?

not all carpet tracks are ozite, many places don't allow foam tires. on some carpets/turfs the spikes are the way to go

Foam is no bueno on turf, they don't work.

I've tried the Schumacher mini pins rear and stagggered rib fronts on my T5M. I found the fronts a little too bitey. Is that a word? It is now ;P I actually switched to AKA Chainlinks for the front.
For the B6 I'm going to try the new Jconcepts Pindowns in rear and Swaggers on the front. I saw JR Mitch testing them at the Extreme Carpet Initative a few months ago. He, Blake Boggs, and a couple of the fast guys were running them as prototypes. They look good, we'll see how they fare. I hope for some long life out of them.

Hey all. After a 10 year plus layoff from RC racing, I've got the bug again and this car certainly has my attention. I'm curious, for 1/10th scale stock buggy racing, what's the general opinion as to how much capacity you need in a 2S pack? Would something in the 4000mah to 4500mah range be too small? Also what specs should I be looking for in steering servos for 10th scale buggy? Thanks for any advice you can provide.
