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.

Thanks for the help!
If your track allows them get some foams from Gone Bananas or make your own.

Hanger Pill adjustment: left mine kit middle middle. When tuning roll center, am I correct in my assumption that pointing the pins downward lowers roll center (same as more shims on rear tower camber link)? And pointing up is raising roll center (eliminating shims from camber link)?. Already set on anti squat, toe and track width just want to make sure I've got this right. Also, what makes this adjustment different from adjust roll center at the inner camber link mount? Thx all

Informal survey:

How many of you actually use the links to the aftermarket parts on the front page?

Very useful. Pretty sure most people check them out when first getting the buggy to decide on which hopups to get.
After getting their ride to their liking maybe check back every so often to see if anything new has shown up..

I've personally checked them out.

+1 I use it. very helpful.

If there was a way to post a mini review of things that we know have a known issue with it to watch for that would be cool.

Internal spacers in shocks. Or unscrew the the lower shock eye.

I saw a couple of those spacer when I rebuilt the shocks. Never saw that before. (Bought it previously owned).

Still clueless on how to actually do it though.. I'm sure it's super simple once I get it though.. will poke around some more when I get home.
