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.

This is the only one I know of - I imagine brass will also be available at some point:

Correct. That is the only D Mount available at this time. 3 C mounts, The aluminum version that comes with the car as well as the 12g and 25g brass versions.

So B6D + laydown, everyone is getting the brass D Mount (12g I'm guessing)?

What would be the next obvious parts to buy for mostly clay tracks, or watered down dirt? I'm running stock so will probably get a slipper eliminator when my driving gets better..

What about the rear hex screws?

Is there anything else besides rear shock tower that needs to be beefed up for reliability/performance?

If you're running stock, the MIP aluminum pucks system is a popular upgrade to lighten the drive train. But ultimately you're money will be best spent and see better results with good tires and track time. All the hopups in the world won't compensate for the wrong tires in terms of setup and track time to tune and get comfortable with the car will yield better lap times as well.

Agreed Chris, but sometimes I need to up an online order to get a discount/free shipping, so I actually need to buy more stuff..

Buy more tires........ especially in indoor/clay tracks. I have several pairs of the same tire with varying amounts of tread to tune for different track conditions. Really does make a significant difference. I would also suggest buying replacement diff and transmission parts. On clay tracks especially since the outdrives and drive pins wear faster, which will negatively effect handling. I see a lot of cars with hundreds of dollars in hopups, with sloppy suspension parts and worn out drivetrains. My point is to not get caught up in the hopup game. Tires and keeping your car fresh will do so much more for you.

Thank you Chris. How often do you replace your diff and tranny or suspension? (for the B6D+laydown)
