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 switched to 2 gear with 15K because my o-rings were leaking with the stock 4K

I don't know if you're looking for a lightweight battery but I just got the new protect lihv 3600 battery and love it. Without any weights and the 25 gram c block my car was 1452 grams. Added the brass weight plates and nondescript he electronics steel plate and needs the car handled best between 1541 and 1555 grams.

Is it possible to just pick up a gasket for the gear diff rather than buying a rebuild kit? Seems they sell them for some of the other vehicles...

Go back to page 332 post 4973 Official Team Associated B6 & B6D thread

I have the part numbers I used for the battery strap. For this battery, the stock strap does not work. It covers the battery post and doesn't cradle it right. The HPI Hot Bodies does the job perfectly.
