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.

with the help of a pm from 2slo4u, i got the shim situation with the pucks sorted out. you have to:

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.

other than the puck situation above, my build went well for the most part. stripped a titanium screw. the four screws that hold the rear shock tower on did not go in easily. i should have stopped, ran a steel screw through all the holes a few times and then try it. other than that, i think the AE titanium screws are fine. that was my fault that i stripped the one screw. pretty sure steel would have stripped too.

That probably needs a home in the wiki

Edit: Removed a reasonable response. You're right, I concede on all fronts. Non-satellite internet is superior even when its not available (which is why this sub-discussion started). End sub-thread.

Guys,

My search came up empty. Does the B6D kit come with the 4 gear stand up and gears?

My local track is super low grip clay.

Thanks for the help.

B6D comes with 3-gear, you have to buy the 4-gear separately or wait for the champion edition

I run on low-medium type clay, and am running the 3 gear standup and I thought it had a lot of rear traction. I was previously running a SRX2 with the 4 gear for the most part and ended up preferring the 3 gear once someone made it available. My lap times decreased as well (it was just faster in the corners, and I felt like I really didn't give up any rear bite).

Not the same car of course, but hope that sort of experience might convey and help.

Thanks,

Any idea on the part numbers for the extra idler gear, or is it the same as the other idler gear?
