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.

Indeed, your right...good eye.

Anyone tested 3x1.4 pistons In the rear yet? I'm curious to see how it effected the car?

Default Tessmann inverted shocks...

Anyone dare to try this?

That's some low CG.

Quick question, can a gear diff be put into a B6D if one wanted to?

Yes you can use the B5M gear diff by adding 91605 shims in the gearbox or buy a B6 gear diff which is basically a diff + the needed shims

Nope, my understanding, he ran it that way at the Nats.

The problem with mounting the shocks like this is that the pistons are sitting in the air gap at the top of the stroke so you have no actual damping at full droop

They use bladders so there is no air gap. At least that's how Gord Tessman builds them according to his youtube video. I suspect Tanner's setup is the same also.

Can anyone running a B6 gear diff comment on its ability to hold oil? I had one in my SC10 and within a few race days all the black grease would have worked its way out. I had one in my B5 and it leaked. I bought the aluminum cap and it was better, but still not great.

Did you sand the case? My B6 is on the way but haven't had problems with the B44.3 or RC8 truggy or buggy. I sanded them a bit tho.
