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.

The bottom hole would allow for a lower ride height without the roll center compromise that just running the standard geometry lowered would have. Everything could be different of course but if this is based off of a modified world's B5, I'd doubt it
I was mainly referring to the design of the bellcranks. They are now far forward and opposite of how the b4/5 was, more of how the 22 series cars are.

B6 has taken all 3 rounds of EOS qualifying so far! Two to Cragg, one to Cavalieri. Great debut results for the chassis.

Just pre-ordered my B6. So excited! I was impressed with the B5M. I am sure the B6 will not disappoint!

Pre-ordered mine from Amain yesterday, had $10 store credit to use so I pulled the trigger. I really like the B5M and hope the B6D is just as good, get to focus on driving the T5M now till B6 comes out.

Default Inline battery

Do you suppose that battery strap allows for an inline set up? If not, I'm certain an aftermarket company will create one really easy. Hello Shape ways!

wow, this is how you setup a thread!

Buddha, it's a little old, but I also like this simple tuning guide (as well as some of the explanations) from elvo.

Table of Contents; Suspension & Handling Articles (click Setup Guide on left)

I might get really silly and order both and use a $100 coupon code.


I am not pre-ordering. Want to make sure both are in stock and time it with an e-cash promo week of the month. Then each kit will effectively cost $230 each, when the certificate arrives for $60 to spend on something else.


As a Super Saver Member. I just renewed 2 years for $10 last week as I forgot in February to do that.
