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.

I don't know if more tailored to the B6/B6D in shape, but very likely just a custom weight at 26 and 43g vs the 19 and 39g those others Reedy brand has.

Looking at the steering plate in the last picture made me wonder about different methods to adjust ackerman. Is there any benefit to adjusting it at the wheel/spindle vs. on the steering rack?

Download Associated's tuning app for your phone. Search for RC cheat sheets. Breaks down almost every adjustment you could think of.

Looking forward to running my B6D for the first time tomorrow. Swore I won't run 17.5 ever again because I refused to abide by the "Keep up with the Jone's" mentality of of stock racing. But I figured I'd try the B6D the try in stock class.
