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 are correct. After I installed the turnbuckles, it didn't travel as far and comes no where near touching the top plate any more.

Just finished putting together my B6D and the front wheels rub against the steering ball cup. I'm assuming this is not normal, I put the kit together according to kit set up. Any suggestions?

Only thing bad about the aluminum hubs in the rear is no height adjustment. I will continue to use the plastic till a b6 specific rear hub comes out with the height adjustment.

Looking to join my local rc group after moving to a new state and thinking of going with the b6 for their indoor winter carpet racing series. what are some must have upgrades, or upgrades to make the b6 solid for carpet racing, or just more bulletproof in general. cost isnt an issue. thanks

Get the aluminum D mount for adjustability. For carpet you may want to pick up the chassis weights (aluminum or steel) for tuning. The car is pretty bulletproof out of the box.

Default Servo horn

Which aluminum servo horn is everyone using? I run a Savox 1258. I used the same servo horn I used in my B 5M and it hits the top plate.

On high grip carpet you just need the brass front bulkhead and an aluminium servo horn. The car is fast and smooth right out of the box.
I went with only 1mm Ackerman washers on the steering rack and the middle hole on the rear inner camber link.

I use this servo horn for Futaba/Savox 25T spline:

There is other good ones if you search B6 Servo Horn on AMain.
