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.

does it work with a thin battery? Looks like it would be too high with the brace.

If all these are correct I stand corrected and apologise if not I fear your a little too stiff

But each to there own
If Suby is running at Extreme Raceway in Spring Hill, then 'bringing the grip up' isn't an issue since (as far as I know) they don't allow tire sauce on their carpet. Look up Extreme R/C Raceway on Facebook you can see the track layout and draw your own conclusions.

Hey Aaron I missed the racing today. Work Next time they run I might stop by your pit and compare setups. So far my B6 is pretty good there and my driving is improving.

Sounds good man please do. I couldn't race today either unfortunately. Life gets crazy around Christmas! Hopefully I'll be getting the b64 soon, can't wait to get that car going.

Does anybody know how the offsets of the Schumacher wheels compare to the B5/B6 wheels? Looking at Cav's setup from the EOS race he is running the 6mm hex's, is that to correct for different offset wheels or because he is running a slightly wider pivot?

Also is this a pretty good starting setup for carpet? I have heard the Yatabe springs are better but I was just going to copy this setup to start with until I spend more money on stuff and know I like racing on carpet and start going there more. Thanks.

You can adjust the battery brace screws lower and it should work with the thin shorty's. I'll double check later today.

The turnbuckle thats included is the same length as a kit B6 turnbuckle. The turnbuckle included should be long enough to work with the stand up transmission as well. I'll check on that later today as well.

are the Kashima coated shocks just for looks, or do they provide a performance advantage?

When paired with the machined shock pistons they feel smoother....I don't think it equates to faster laps however.

I believe the shu wheels are about 1mm narrower offset

And yeah wider track narrow hex keeps track width the same it changes shock leaverages and roll centre the car will tend to be more stable when landing off jumps

Anyone have any insight when the new style rear hub and longer CVA bone is going to be available?

I don't think anything is planned or info released. there is speculation from one image of a unique hub being tested on Cav's car but that is it. Don't know if it has a longer CVA bone or not.
