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 use the stock open cell foams. I feel that the closed cell are harder and dont allow the carcass of the tire to flex as much thereby putting more stress on the pins which will wear faster.

Default 4 gear stand up

Just built the 4 gear stand up. Does it matter what side the ball diff hex bolt head faces?
In the manual for the standard 3 gear it mentions to have the ball diff hex bolt head same side as spur gear. In the sc5m manual which has the 4 gear it mentions the opposite. Ie ball hex bolt head opposite side to spur gear.

Thanks
Mark

Does anyone have the part numbers and/or information on using a turnbuckle, rod ends and insert in lieu of the waterfall brace?

Thank you in advance!

THis was answered over about 5 pages of internet engineers...

I ALWAYS put the head on the side that has the slipper nut so I remember which side it's on...

Thanks for the responses everyone. I guess our area is a little different and go through a bit more of those items. I have a feeling its more track challenge related than anything.

Obviously I've tried that with some of the extra parts I have but apparently I don't have the right rod ends and inserts laying around.

I figured since many others did it that they could assist.

My current track is dirt hard packed high bite, medium traction, should I just build the car with the lay-down transmission from the get go? is it that better?

What are others using? Base it off that...start where you will feel most comfortable. Nobody here can tell you how to build it.

If you don't have the lay down yet.. build it as is... order the lay down and switch it out and see which one works better for you. Worse case you're out $25 but you'll know for sure that you chose the best setup for how you drive.

I started with the 3 gear stand up and then as I became more comfortable, I switched out to the lay-down then eventually tried the shocks in front. I have a complete stand-up and lay-down that I can swap back and forth if needed.

which one you like better, is the difference in handling very noticeable?
thanks

Honestly it depends on traction level. low-med...standup & medium to high...lay-down. To judge on purely how both transmissions handle...lay-down all day long. You can carry more corner speed, jumps flatter and just transitions side to side much better. I run the lay-down with the 24g weight.
