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.

They have a coating that reduces friction. On the track you will most likely not notice any real difference compared to the standard bodies. You can feel a difference in your hands when you take a std body and molded piston and compare it to the kashima body with a machined piston though.

It appears the new car will be pretty lightweight right from the box. Looking at Rivkin's and BT's setup sheets from JC Spring Nats, they both ran 50-54g under the battery and still only had car weights of 1540g and 1530g, and that's with the brass C block. This will make the weight plates a pretty useful tuning option.

Rear B6 shock bodies are the same as the T5M fronts. P/N 91577 for the Kashima Coat.

When I watch a 4mm car turn I want to ask the driver if they have a porch to hang that swing on.

Kody said, nothing in planning for a +3 or +2. Something about they will look into later if it is needed.

So a local hobby shop posted today that AE plans for a coordinated July 11th release. Take that with a grain of salt, because everything on the internet is not always true. But...Amain still says July 11th on their site and Tower still says mid July....

Funny how an average guy like me can be right. I think the packaging is very time consuming and to be fair like to all hobby shops vs the big online retailers the shipment is set a certain way. Also worldwide launch, so you got to ship those earlier. And we seen the team drivers all look to get their stuff first as well as good quality reviewers in the industry.


Just think about how many kits Tower will get. Probably like 8 to 10 skids of these 2 kits initially. Lots of work.


Maybe I was wrong of the complete kit sealed and on the boat for the 10 day to 2 week ride over to North America. I guess the JConcepts Body add to the kit or just the majority of the parts were shipped and they are bagging them with some items made in the USA which would be nice for once to put it all together.


The world doesn't work on early. Either on time or late. AMain with their July 11 date or Tower with their mid July date (which is the 10th to 20th of the month) is basically pretty right on all along.


Just 1.5 more weeks I guess for you guys. I hope I can sell some older items to get a B6 first as I have a carpet track nearby and I will use the B5M Lite for outdoors for the rest of the season and then grab the B6D also.

Do you guys want me to continue to list all the aftermarket accessories for the B6/B6D on the front page? Or just links to the manufacturer's websites?

I'm wondering if having the list is useful or not.

Links I think would be good and easier.
