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.

You might be able to get a rough idea looking at some of the set up sheets on AE's website. Though their going to change quite a bit from driver to driver

Just looking for some reference. More or less expo, brake dual rate, steering speed. I noticed not much info on what people have so wanted to open a conversation about it.

It's all personal preference.

Maybe someone can laymen terms explain what you gain with the VRP towers with the outer hole removed and what conditions is it best for?
So can you use the 31mm shock body with the rear towers?

Has anyone tried the laydown with the long tower? I was pleased with it on the 6D. The rear just seem to hang on longer in the turns with more confidence coming out of the turn. Jumps better to.

I run my M12S & MT4S with all the settings they came with....I don't use any of that stuff and I'm not sure that I know anybody that does. I adjust the end points and brake settings, that's it. My HW ESCs have punch settings and WOT delay settings so I don't bother with the radio.

radio settings are personal preference. Depends on a lot of things. Driver, servo, esc setting, track. Take for example on the same car but different servos. One I needed 0 exp on steering and the other in at -25 on steering expo. Its all preference and best to go to track and try each adjustment out to make car drive better for you. I think Kinwald said that 80 percent of the way the car races is all in radio settings

The only settings that I use apart from sub-trim to centre the steering are:
EPA (ch1): L82, R104. I set these to the points where the steering just begins to move away from full lock, so that the steering servo isn't pushing against the locked steering.
EXP (ch2): -25%. To dedicate a bit more of the trigger throw to the lower/mid range of speed and give a bit more control when accelerating.

Thanks for the info. Looking at amain mainly as I have some credit there with them I want to use up


Looking to pick up some springs, thinking of going say a rate higher and lower than what is stock for the B6D and the B6 versus full kits, depending of course on price. I figure that could give me some options for indoor carpet as well as outdoor. Sound good or are you guys finding for AE springs there are just certain ones that you want to use all the time?

on that site does the (D) after the name denote that the setup is from a B6D base?

I think so....it doesn't really matter though. The setup sheet notes all the details.
