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 planning to build my B6D with the machined shock bushings and machined shock pistons.

For the bushings I'm using AE 91494, but for the Pistons I've been debating between the AE machined and the Schelle. I'm leaning twards Schelle because they are sold in packs of 2 while the AE pistons come per 4 pack (I'm planning to start with the kit setup of 2x1.6 & 2x1.7). Any reason why the AE machined Pistons would be better than the machined Pistons from Schelle?

updated the front page and the wiki. As a reminder, the wiki can be edited by anyone, so if you see something that should be up there, add it!

The car comes with the machined bushings.

Edit: sorry, I see you mean the machined spacers.

I thought the same based on some early AE employee Q&A sessions I saw online, but like Wildcat notes above the manual says differently.

I went with the B5m. I actually bought two. One for my son and I both. A little birdy told me that they might actually be coming out with a b6 conversion kit. Heard it may be coming in November or early next year. Plus it was too good of a deal to pass up. $500 for two team kits and all electronics included. Except for receiver and radio which I already have.

No, they won't be. The entire car, from the shocks to every single piece of plastic is different.

The ONLY shared parts are few. Front axles, some of the bearings and a few others are the same.

Pretty sweet deals on these b5m's. Couldn't come close to finding something of this quality walking into a hobby shop and picking up 2 race ready buggies for a father and son. Congrats

Maybe a kit to convert a B6D, to a B6 and vice-versa. But a B5M to a B6... nope. Possibly a B6 gearbox conversion for the B5M, but that's doubtful too.

Default Rear shocks

Bummer, because I ordered what fit the b5m. Had no idea they changed the shock body length and I feel like I've read plenty on this car already. At least they both take the same shafts from what I can tell in the manuals. Just a little warning for those that are looking to get the kashima shock bodies. You will have to run the optional 91666 rear shock tower with the 31mm shock bodies.
Just get the longer rear shock tower and you can run the b5 rear shocks. I believe the part number is listed s couple pages back .
