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 was leaning towards a HobbyWing XR10 Stock, but not sure if thats the right choice or not. I need to get some wheel time in before getting a really quick motor. I was thinking of starting with a 17.5 and getting smooth and consistant before going hotter. I'd like to hear what others are using and running given some of my info. Thanks.
Your on the right track bud, but if your like the rest of us and get hooked and then you eat sleep and breathe RC then it really makes more sense for you to just buy the xr10 pro or whatever the top tier is then you will never have to worry about what motor you decide to throw in. With the lower amp models you may get 5 min of run time and be fine heat wise but what will likely happen is you and your bud are out there practicing and before you know 12 min gone by and your thermaling(not a word) your esc which is no good.
Long story short spend the extra money and guarantee your happiness!

Outer ball stud inserts yes. Toe inserts no.

I am using AE's original tool kit that had both metric and standard sizes. I like the fact the handle has a pass thru so you can get some extra torque if needed with another driver ran through it, at least, that is what I do

the MIP stuff I like as well, got the ball driver, however, wish they had a pass thru.

But for working on say the B6D, you may not need it at all. AE has a specific metric and hex nut tool set you could pickup that should cover you. They also sell an all in one hex driver handle with hex bits too that you can also use in a drill. That makes building so much faster.

Does a Spektrum S6240 fit in a B6D?

I was going to try one, but I think the wire/plug is in the way of the servo mount?

Yes that is a problem with that servo.

Has anyone run the BMI rear hub inserts with the new exotek HD puck bones? I know the bones are longer than the stock ones, just curious if they're long enough to run with the BMI inserts. Thanks.

Exotek makes those bones for the losi too. Just get the ones for the 3.0. They are 67mm.

Has anyone come up with a way to use LRP's Super Shorty in the B6D?
