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.

I had a 22 rm before the B5, them b5m. I was racing outdoors and it was ok. I could never make it great. The b5 rm was much better imo. Then I moved and started racing indoor high bite and have run the b5m since. I really liked the b5m. I am hoping the B6D is even better.

i'm thinking the hot ticket at my track will be the laydown tranny with the flat front arms. so i'll probably end up buying the B6D and the laydown parts (i'll be curious to see the weight of this setup). i'll probably wait and see what the hot ticket at my track is. we already have a few fast guys that run a laydown.

Kody said the running weight "should" be lighter than the b5m lite. He didnt give any specific numbers that I saw.

Wow, my B5M lite with standard electronics and 3 gear was 1522 grams. B6D might be right at the 1499 gram weight limit then.

Even more weight savings if you fill your shocks half full.

I fill my tires with hydrogen gas to make them lighter.

I pre-ordered the B6D and plan to do the laydown swap too. I run a laydown gearbox now and love it, so the new car should only be better, amirite?

Pre-Ordered the B6 and B6D so I can use the trannys as needed and have some extra parts. Car looks refined, should see a losi 4.0 by the time we can drive the B6's .
