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.

Will the B5M body be compatible with the B6D?

It's true, when grip is up at LRH my YZ-2 CA can out corner every other traditional mid-motor car there.

Titanium screws and ball studs are last on my list of upgrades (at least they were on my T5M). I may just run the B6 stock for a bit and get a feel for it before doing any upgrades. THis will be my first buggy EVER so I expect it will be a completely different animal.

It will be, but not as much as you think

I think the AE screw kit was only $55 or $58, and it included the bottom side screws too. I'll get that kit. Part of the fun for me is building the car and using the "go fast" (bling) parts. The tinkering and custom building is what I find the most fun in this sport.

Cool Letdown Tranny

I wouldn't be surprised if there is already a part number for the Laydown tranny conversion
