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.

Didn't see this can you use a shorty pack in the b6. I didn't read where you can or can't use it just want to make sure..

For sure Shorty batteries are used in the B6 series.

I received my B6 a few days ago and did most of the build last night, I have noticed loads of mistakes in the manual! I also had some bags with the wrong size screws in!

Love the car though can't wait to finish it and run it Tuesday, I have been running a Centro C4.2 and I'm hoping to notice an improvement with the B6

I'm trying to prioritize my list of upgrades/aftermarket parts that I want for my B6D. Can't afford them all at once. I'm running stock on a mid to high traction track. I've got the titanium screw kit from AE at the top of my list because i can't figure any circumstance in which i wouldn't want a lower center of gravity. I looked at all the aftermarket parts Buddha posted in the beginning of the thread. Is there another part i might benefit more from in the beginning?

I would get the titanium front axles, aluminum D hanger with inserts and hard front and rear arms.

Initially the part you might want to consider is the aluminum D Block. Allows you to use the inserts and opens up more tuning possibilities.

I completely disagree on the Ti axles. They're heavier than the stock axles.

I agree on the Aluminium D mount.

I also always suggest pucks if you're running indoor.

Thanks for the input y'all. I had the MIP pucks high on my list. Combine those with the the MIP bi-metal diff and it sounds like you could cut the rotating mass way down. I'll probably put those two at the top of my list now. Could one of you post a link to the aluminum D Mount you're referring to?

Great advertising, RCBuddha. I'm assuming you work for A-E?
