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.

Well moved the camber link back out (although not quite as far) and was good but still not much front and grip under power. Removed the 2x1mm washers under the front inner camber links and quite a bit of steering. Goes against all I've read but now you've explained what's happening I understand a little more.

Thanks, really appreciated.

Glad to help. You will find that you can explore other adjustments a bit more and arrive at a different setup that suits you perfectly.

If all goes well, today or during the week will test a couple outside the box tricks.

*edit* Yep, too stiff front spring and too low RC height. One could also try increasing shims bellow the front hub.

I was there Saturday trying to shake the car down but I had an 8.5 in there.

It's just too much motor for that layout

look in "setup guide" for info on camber links/link length and what does what.

I have other links on the first page that make for a good reading.
Nice. Thank you.

schelle updated the hubs to use with the kit inserts. I was thinking AE would update theirs too eventually.


Thanks for posting that!



I'll have a link on the front page once schelle update's their site.

13.5T/10.5T would be the best motor to have their to clear that triple.

I think if the indoor clay tracks were big like an outdoor track and had some big air jumps you would see broken shock towers same there in a frustrating way. I just don't think the speed is there indoors for the most part.




Where you breaking them? I seen a picture before across the hole of the shock mount point on the ends.

You know I'm racing outdoors!

Didn't yesterday though; ran at Ricochet raceway and LOVED it.

Outdoors the car is super stable. I haven't broke a tower, but then again, I don't make a habit of crashing

And the 25G laydown C just came out, as well.
