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.

A light mod car is a handful to drive, and the setups wont be exactly the same..most notably the shock package.

So the stock car should have a lighter shock package?

A lighter car will have a softer shock package, as it has less weight to suspend.

Would it also be wise to lower shock oil as well in a 17.5 car,vs a mod car?

Anybody running the gear diff / B6 with any success on indoor mid/high bite clay? Was hoping to make this work since I enjoy the low maintenance that comes with a gear vs ball diff.
