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 am running the black edition savox servo 1258tg black edition if that matters, no servo spacers, stock steering other than the exotek servo arm and I have no issues.

Did you have to add foam to get it to work with the thin pack?

Doesn't that take an SAE ballstud, 4-40 IIRC?

Post a pic. Maybe remove the 2mm spacer from the bell crank?

If you're using no servo spacers, you have to use shorter screws.

I used the same in my B5m setup, use a body reamer to enlarge the mounting hole in the Losi servo arm just enough to start the AE ballstud

OK I'm getting confused with the Yokomo Springs comparing them to AE. What color F&R would I need for a B6 on astroturf?
I'm currently running the kit springs which is orange on front & blue on the rear. What Yokomo's are about the same?

Correct. I drilled and tapped one in a pinch.

Yes but not a lot. A thin foam pad under the battery strap itself is all you need.
