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.

Everybody thinking B5R will be around and possibly become the RTR car and discontinue the B4.2 RTR. That will keep a 1/10 rear motor car in their line up.

Is 702 a spike tire (Pin Points) or slick tire (Primes) carpet track? Track appears to be an Ozite on-road style carpet?

The reason I ask is because our local indoor on-road club added a 2wd off-road class by putting some jumps on their Ozite track. Originally the rules allowed spiked carpet tires, but the club felt the spikes were harming the Ozite carpet so they've switched to a sauced slick tire rule.

Will a sauced slick tire on an Ozite track generate B6 super high grip?
702 runs spiked rear/wedged front tires for offroad... but it's not ozite. Its high traffic short pile office type carpet. it's only been a few months, but so far the offroad cars havent frayed or torn it up.

I assume sauced slicks would work too; on-road uses sxt 3.0 and it hooks up great.

48mm = 1.88976 inch. I think the current b5m is 2.06in.

You are missing front arms and front shock tower, and the body.

RCBuddha, thanks for all your work! One thing to note on the first page....Q & A on X-rings is great for B5M and B5 but the B6 & B6D come with x-rings (don't want to confuse people).

I am curious if the shock shafts will hold the piston on with a screw or E-clip??? I've never had a problem with the e-clips, but it seems like having the piston screwed on tight would improve smoothness and consistency.

i believe they will use V2 shafts (screw in piston).

I would have taken a screen shot of the whole page if I'd known it was coming down. I only wrote down the items I was interested in -I'm getting the B6D, so I didn't worry about the arms/towers.

I did get a few FT options down though:

91755 Ti Screw Kit
91669 Aluminum Steering Rack
91668 Aluminum Steering Bellcrank
