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.

hey guys, I'm mid build and I may or may not bomb you guys with more questions

but for now until I can figure out what electronics I want I'm going to try a VXL 3S to get moving, can someone recommend what spur/pinion? Specs say it's a 10T 3500Kv. I was thinking a 19/78

however, on the truck version I didn't have the issue, so it could have just been that nut and bolt. So who knows, maybe its more so when things are worn to watch for.


Right now debating getting the gear diff. I have the pucks based on what came with my vehicle, but ball diff installed from what I can tell. Is there any place that has the MIP outdrives specific for the gear diff in stock?
3 gear-same side. 4 gear-opposite side. Makes a difference, and diffs will loosen themselves not only on this car. But, whatever

For the diff screw issue. Set to what you want and then put a small amount of JB Weld on the diff screw head. It will lock it in.

This argument could last pages and pages...Do whatever you want and call it good.

Open up your toilet and see which way it flushes. If it's clockwise, you have to put it on motor side. Counter-clockwise, slipper side.

I used up all my JB Weld on my DIY "slipper eliminator". Will shoe goo work?

yes, it will "give" a little more and reduce torque steer.

Not sure that Northern Hemisphere vs. Southern Hemisphere really makes any differences for mounting a screw O_o

There are quite a few setups listed here: http://site.petitrc.com/setup/associ...tedRC10B6.html

But not many use a gear diff on dirt.

B5,B5M, & B4.2 manual says which side to put it on. I am pretty sure they were designed to be places on a specific side, too bad there's no AE design team support on here. I am sure every other AE manual I have seen also says which side it should be on. But neither here nor there... I haven't decided to go rogue and test out what would happen if I was a rebel and put it on the other side...

Same here, 1 of the screws in the bag that bolt the tranny down was 2 mm longer than it was suppose to be and it went thru the tranny case and hit the diff gear.

Thanks, but I did come across that page already. Looks like none of them tried to make the gear diff work on dirt/clay. Messaged received loud and clear...
