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.

Yeah, the spacers under the piston take away droop. Remove them and the shock will go to full droop. If that is not enough then unscrew lower shock eyes. Or for quick adjustments you can unscrew for tuning purposes.

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.
Internal limiters or stroke length

Also, what makes this adjustment different from adjust roll center at the inner camber link mount? Thx all

Pointing them down raise the roll center and moving them up lowers it.

Yeah I absolutely hate this design. On 1/10 touring cars we used to have the droop screws and of course on 1/8 too.

Yeah, basically, but I have never had to make droop changes in 1/10 as I have in 1/8th. I have used tie wraps to make some droop changes for testing. Wasn't exactly scientific testing but it worked.

Well, my first night with the b6d was a success. Was really pressed for time to make it this weekend, but was able to finish painting the night before and cut/trim the day of. Threw on some unprepared tires from my old b5 and was able to qualify 4th in the A in mod 2wd and then take 1st in the main in style with some close battling. Car felt slow, and while I was "on pace", I wasn't where I wanted to be and really needed to rely on clean runs vs all out ability. Went back up to the track the next day(today) and re-foamed my fronts with some new closed cell and boom, car was tits amazing. I figured I was gonna do some tuning but all it was was floppy front foams on high bite where lots of us run slicks or ghosted tires. I ran and won with the box stock setup with the long shocks. I'm definitely impressed with this car. Kit quality and drivability and competitiveness right from the box is just amazing.

72/36......I'm carrying over a 5.2 FDR (66/33) with a Team Powers Actium from my B5m..... I run a fan. Medium size clay (Tacoma RC Raceway) should be close with the 6 but going to run a SS Reedy Mach 3 from my TC....

I'm not changing gearing at all until I get my issue resolved. Apparently my XR10 justock esc's sensor port is not functioning. The 29t did increase my speed but it's been running without timing =/

I don't mind updating, but I'm starting to wonder how useful people find it...Let me know....
I use them a lot, I especially like that I can come back periodically and see all the new stuff available in 1 big list

yeah that was one of the pluses I liked on the Durango till I ran on really old school dirt and the perch the screw would go onto for the front would pack up with dirt. Made a special "shaved" bulkhead just for that reason to remove the perches.

Its a minor thing though but still cool to have, especially with the conditions we race on these days.
