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.

Looking at stock class for now, slowly upgrading the important parts, then someday jump up to mod.
I had a 22 3.0, did not like it.

Yeah- I was pointing out that the Losi upgrade costs $180. more. Just not worth it to me.
And whoever said yellow wheels are faster; maybe, but they'd look like crap with my paint scheme so I'll be a bit slower but looking oh so good!

Don't let Mathew talk you into a 22 3.0 haha. Calebs and Jeremy's are dialed. My xb2 is a tad off so I am looking forward to the b6. Wish I could have it for this weekend at extreme.

I have a 3.0 too, and it's a really good car but....I'm getting rid of it and the B6 is on order! I had to chuckle early on when I was reading some people are mad at AE for releasing the B6 only 2 years after the B5! How would you feel to buy a 3.0 and then have them release a $180 laydown kit a few months later!?!? I'm seriously thinking of selling my 22sct and 22-4 and going all in on AE if this kit is half as good as I think it will be. My last AE kit was a RC10 Team Car back in the early 90s.

Speed. There's less dye in the yellow wheels, so they are slightly lighter than white.

How many grams are we talking here and is it the AE yellow rims only or does it go for aka as well?
I know a few grams per rim can make a difference when you're taking about rotational mass but has anyone actually weighed the difference?

White wheels are 2 grams lighter per wheel than yellow wheels measured on my postal scale. But jokes on you I special ordered clear wheels. 4 grams per wheel!!! 😂

The clears are nice, but they don't hold up to most of the traction compounds, so I don't recommend them unless you like going through a set of wheels faster than your tires.

Make sure you get the PET wheels, they have a number 5 in the recycle symbol on the insides of the wheels. And make sure you recycle them after you're done. Most of the bigger indoor tracks have a bin right next to the Coke machine.

Default Converting from b6D to b6

Is there a typo in this list? 91709. Is the chassis brace the same as the waterfall brace?
