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'm thinking about getting a new buggy as parts are easier for me to get for the B6's. Apart from the electronics, is there any difference between the B6D and the Club Racer?

The shock towers aren't carbon fiber, but that doesn't matter. 99% of everything else is identical, making the Club Racer a great deal if the included electronics suit your needs.

What's better for the shock towers? Carbon or the fiberglass? I'm not too keen on the fixed timing motors so I might be better off going for a B6D.

They both have good and bad attributes. Carbon are more rigid and a tad lighter, but are more prone to breaking.

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me what's going with B6 gear diff outdrives? Seems to be a supply issue in the UK. Rumour has it that AE are working on a new gear diff?

Thanks

I picked up one of both the 13.5 and 17.5 FT motors. Neither are slow. Don't be scared to give it a shot. Great motor.

Anyone know if you can run B5/B6 V2 slipper hubs on a B4.x? It looks like the pads are the same, but are the hubs interchangeable?

Yes, they are the same.

Well I havnt been racing in 4yrs and ran losi before I just pulled the trigger and got the B6D to start running again I havnt drove an associated car since the gold chassis and the org B1 looking forward to running again. Running mod starting with box setup and going from that point to get a handle on this mid motor craze. I got a few option parts cblock 25g D block I have plenty of springs also ordered laydown trans for when my tracks traction comes up in the winter with all the people racing .Is there anything else I should be looking to get thats functional and not bling that I might need later once I get used to running again. Also what chargers are good to have Im looking for one that reads the ir Thanks

Other than the laydown gearbox, is there anything else that needs to be added to the car to run it on astro?

If you are buying new the B6 comes with laydown gearbox. If you are converting from a B6D you will also need gear diff, springs, Gullwing (hard) arms, Gullwing carbon tower, carbon rear tower plus front and rear sway bars. Front brass bulkhead and the chassis weights will help get weight up to minimum.

I'm having some issues with my rear axles. I run the schelle hubs and bmi inserts. I was running the hd axles and mip pucks (in 67mm length). I put the AE 67mm axle conversion on the car tonight and when I crank down on the wheel nut, the clamping hex moves and binds the drivetrain. I didn't have this issue before and don't have the problem on my truck or 4 wheel. Any ideas?
