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.

Only problem is I can not find the BMI spacers. Ive googled everything I could to try to find them and have no idea what they look like or what they do even. Their website is terrible, the online store does not work and their facebook page doesnt seem like its been used in years. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Yes, I know. My website has not been used in a long time. I used to make pan cars and stopped doing them 5 years ago. I check the Facebook page but have not been on this weekend due to a busy New Years weekend. I will be back in the office tomorrow so best bet is to shoot me an email and I will get you what you need. My email is jason@bmiracing.com. Just give me until the morning to send you all of the info. We are off today.

Yes, they will only work with the aluminum hubs. Either the AE or the Schelle.

How loose should the front and rear arms be ? My front arms will drop all by themselves when I pick them up, the rear ones will not (brand new, only half way thru the build)
I know When i built my Tekno vehicles it stated in the manual to ream the arms, the associated manual does not

Awesome, thanks for the reply. I have noticed that there are two facebook pages, the one that your website links to seems like an older one that is no longer used, but a search for BMI racing leads to a more current one.

I will be in touch. Now realizing that it only works with the Aluminum hubs has me second guessing because I dont have them. I have a pair on my SC5M but not sure I want to run them on my 17.5 car. I guess it cant hurt to try them.

MIP 16131 are the aluminum axles you want if you are running pucks or rollers with the BMI offset inserts. They are on my cars right now. You also eliminate the spacers on the axle with these bones.

Newbie question:

I am building a set of 31mm shocks and followed instructions per manual (middle of page 15 steps 1-10) and I am getting a stroke length measuring 18.5mm. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance!
