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.

Exclamation It may be just because they are a new design.

Finally got the chance to bring my B6D to the track today. Broke the rear shock tower on the second battery pack. Three dudes broke their B6D rear shock tower on my track today. So I am wondering: Any better choices than the stock shock tower?

I did the same. So far my Infinity tower is holding up great. It's .5mm thicker and has a little more material above the shock holes.

Glad to hear that. I also prefer aluminum.

Finished building this B6D late last week, but racing was washed out this weekend. Can't wait to get it on a track!

I changed mine to the ball because I'm just more used to running a ball diff. I had zero issues with mine when I ran it other than lack of knowledge on tuning with oils
