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.

Sorry for the newbie question. But Im wanting to buy B6D and race it locally.

I viewed the links on page one and see the electronics layout
site.petitrc.com/setup/associated/setupb6/B6_ElectronicsSetup/

What are 2 to 3 small resistor looking things next to the ESC in most pics? Do they come with ESC or are they separate purchase? What is their function?

Hopefully not the completely wrong place to ask :-)

They are capacitors that come with the esc.

No joke! Very flexible and feel cheap, B5M mounts way more rigid. Needs to be a running change made, possibly with a 10mm spacer for more rear traction.

Good call on the manual I agree use the middle hole and the length should be correct. The extremely positive camber is the red flags like the above poster mentioned. You will have to shorten the camber link if you use your previous ballstud location. Opps, noticed I responded to a much earlier post. My bad.

Built mine to this setup. I hope to take it on it's first run this weekend.

Also picked up a 15g motor weight since I didn't want to do all the cutting to run the 25g C mount with the 4 gear.

There's almost nothing to making the 25g brass mount work. It's a 10 second job. Just notch either the motor plate or the mount with a dremel and sanding drum. Simple and easy.

Essentially the setup takes the B6D back to a B5M setup meaning, narrower wheelbase.

where doyou get the carbon towers that Jason Snyder is talking about on the video on petitrc. I think he says rosby towers but unsure. They have 1mm more material above the shock holes.

When adding the 25g weight, are you adding some weight to the front too to reduce the pendulum effect or does it remain somewhat balanced?
