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.

Thanks for the replies guys - it's actually a ball diff I'm fitting the lay down kit in the b6d. Where would it need shimming - I didn't see it mention needing them in the manual. Thanks!!

Best way to describe it is it spins freely then feels like it's rubbing against the inside of the transmission case for around an 1/8 of a turn of the out drive.

No shimming is necessary with the B6 ball diff. Did you use too long of a screw bolting it to the chassis? This can cause the inside of the case to get warped.

I have done that before! I locked up the transmission completely. LOL

I would check the teeth, and in between the teeth, on the gears. It is wired it is only for 1/8 of the rotation.

I will post my B6D setup later today for very high bite clay. Local track is clay with dirt glue. Clay slicks, mega grip.

We are running the 67mm bones combined with the offset rear hub bearing spacers that move the bearings and axle out 1.5mm. The longer bones get the driveshaft back into outdrive in the proper spot. This combination on the laydown car makes the rear end squat real hard under acceleration. Gives more grip under power.

Also forgot to mention that we also switch to the AE 5mm or 6mm rear hexes.

Will these work for us?

https://www.amainhobbies.com/team-lo...232059/p553890


Or really, are there any bone options for the wide pivot that will allow the use of the MIP diff (aluminum outdrives)? Like maybe these:

Anyone have issues with the lay down gearbox rubbing internally? My outdrive and idler gear are having an issue when I mate the halves of the transmission - if I hold the rear of the gearbox open a fingernails worth with the rest snug - no problems though.

I should mention this is the lay down kit in for the b6d (ball diff)

Here are some videos to show what's going on better.

Video 1 shows internals:

Video 2 shows transmission moving smoothly when open a tiny bit in the rear and then how it runs when closed.

Thanks for all the help!

There are no obvious signs internally that could be causing the issue? Are those cut gears? Could be an issue there...
