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.

Yep... I would venture to say the gear diff would only be beneficial on carpet/turf.

Yeah i agree but to buy the B6D and convert to the lay down is by far more economical than buying the B6 and other parts.

Most will not use the gear diff, gullwing arms and tower, they're great tuning options but most won't use them at all or even utilize them as an option.

Could we also get the setup database added to the first page? Not much there now, obviously.

Whatever one fits your weight, speed, and reliability needs.

It's more of a hint: Give us an idea of what you're after, then the suggestions can start. Also give an idea of budget before I start recommending KO propo stuff.

I'm looking at the D version, for some light racing. I don't need anything fancy, just the most reliable servo that won't break the bank, I'd like to stay under $100

I primarily look at the speed, torque and the voltage that the servo is rated at. Right now, I am at least looking for a speed of .10 seconds, torque of 100 ounce inches, at 6 volts. I say 6 volts because that is what my speed control b.e.c. is supposed to be able to supply.

Some speed controls only supply 5 volts and some receivers can't handle voltages above 6, but they are getting to be few and far between.

If you can share what radio system and speed control you are using we can let you know if there might be compatibility issues.

Default Gear Cover for lay-down

I realize that there is no gear cover for the lay-down transmission because it was born from the carpet world, but those that will be running it in there B6D... Will there be a gear cover for the spur and pinion for those running in the dirt?

The laydown in the B6D will be used on tracks that seal the track or produce very little dust. No gear cover needed.

That's very true. I run on an indoor damp clay track. The pinion and spur on my Tekno 410.3 seems to stay fairly clean. Thanks!

variety of good fast servos out there. I am fond of Futaba and hitec brand servos personally, but I have used some savox standard and low profile servos with my Hobbywing ESCs and no issues to report.
