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.

Default Turnbuckles

Are the turnbuckles the same length as the b5's? Can I use my ti turnbuckles from my b5 on my b6? Thanks

They should work fine. If anything they would be about a 10th of an inch longer.

Thanks. I'm hoping so. Just don't know which receiver and transmitter I should go with. Any suggestions anyone? And the support here is mostly Sanwa, Futaba and a little FlySky

the sanwa MT4s is more than enough radio for club racers. The MTS looks good, but unsure how available they are yet.

Looks like Amain carries the mts.

And...if one is so inclined, you can even get a drop neck for this transmitter to make it really ergonomical! (How's it going Leigh?)
