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 definitely got that vibe in my emails with him. Super nice about the whole transaction.

The motor is not slow.

I'm just curious about laydown still. I do think it's gonna take over just like mid motor did over rear motor. I have the 6d with the laydown but only have a couple of packs threw it so far. It definitely is a little different. Is there a setup out that is for a medium bite indoor track that runs slicks.

For outdoors, no. For anything medium bite or more? Yes.

Sorry yes for indoor. I have been looking around and it seems like setups are all over the place. When I ran my b5m ce I put cavs roar Nats setup on it from last year and it fit me perfect. Was almost sad to sell it and get a 6d lol.

Take a look at Kurt's setups he has been posting to FB. They should also be on the Petitrc site. FB is either Kurt Wenger or Kurt "Coach" Wenger.

See you soon buddy Looks like you will be one of the first guinea pigs

Guys are running the D, but I haven't seen lay-down yet. Heading up there to watch tonight. Will let you know if I see anything interesting.

What's up Sean, I actually already did try laydown at mimis a couple of weeks ago. It wasn't terrible but I know it can be a lot better.

Hey KC - Tonight was my first time out with the B6D/standup, and ran it at Mimis. I practiced for 3 minutes to see if I wanted to run that or my SRX2. I opted for the B6D. We went right into the quals and mains (and I only did very minor tweaks after each qual). By main time I was feeling more comfortable and actually got the track record. It's the fastest I had ever run there, with my fastest hot lap. This was also on Primes that are a few weeks old. Unfortunately, I got 2nd in the main - Chris beat me and needless to say his name got to be on the board. Total bummer!

My only point is that kit form you don't have to do too much to get it to work at Mimis (at least with the standup). I have a total of 27 minutes on the car. I have a laydown on order, but I think I'm going to try to work on refining the standup setup for a few weeks, and then spend a few weeks on the laydown. Let me know what you end up with setupwise with the laydown (and I'll give you my standup setup when done!).

I continue to be impressed with the durability of this car (knocks on wood as he types this). Probably have 15 packs through the car now with TONS of cart wheels and pipe slappers and short of the rear wing looking a little more haggard, the car has had zero other issues.
