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.

A lot of people at my home track are going to the Yokomo green rear springs. Are most people going to the yatabe arena version or is it the standard Yokomo version? Also, what's the difference?

I believe they're using the standard version. The Yatabe arena springs are stiffer, and shorter

count the number of coils. If I remember correctly the "regular" ones have 13 coils. I can verify when I get home, I have both versions

I'm currently running a b6 on med-high bite and want to try to flat front arms, do I need to swap the tower as well or will the gull wing tower work?

Yes you need to use the corresponding tower with the flat arms.

With all aluminum parts connected to your servo and you get hit. crash head on, land skewed...etc. Your servo will absorb all that force and obviously strip your servo gears. Reason i dont upgrade to those aluminum steering parts yet because I know I am not that good in avoiding those type of crashes and conditions.
