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.

Ride high 22mm front and rear

AE D mount and AE front bulk head
17.5 with slipper eliminator.
Gearing 31/69
B5M Schelle rear hubs

Car really wanted to push in the turns on power. I was told to drop the front oil to 32.5 and gray spring and this would help.

Any other ideas? Thanks for all the help!
Try this one. It was super easy to drive at SDRC, grip was pretty good that day though.

I've been out of racing for about 18 months. I have carpet and clay tracks near by and was thinking of buying the B6D and have the B6 parts on hand. Is it just best to buy both or consider the parts and swap out parts the night before?

Only used in 17.5 racing. Use in mod and you will destroy idle gears.

I'd go with the B6D and get the laydown transmission conversion kit ($30) and a gear diff. Best of both worlds and easy to swap back and forth.

His set up has a 3 gear stand up. I did not try his set up due to not having the parts. Last night at OCRC both Losi and AE had all the best out. It was crazy to watch them drive. Spinner was running with new Jconcepts tires and Jason timeing his his laps and others watching. TLR had its heavy hitters out too. Funny thing is only TLR drivers will help out us normal folks. Jake from inside and even Mayfield looked at my car and gave ideas. I would just like to say TLR guys are MUCH more helpful. To be honest I don't even race. I just enjoy going to the track when I can. Some day I hope to try but until then I will just enjoy the hobby of RC! This site has been a big help with everyone one it so thank you.

Thanks. Will give this a try.
What is the big deal with the long and short schock eyelet?

Long on the front for outside hole only. Long in the rear is for shocks on back of the arm only.

Default Servo

What did I do wrong on servo, simple but thought I would ask - throw hitting on cars right side of top plate. Using AE 25 tooth alum horn.

You have to use the plastic spacers on the servo mount with the Savox, else the bottom screw pushes the servo up at an angle --

Alternatively, you could use shorter servo screws.
