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.

That's just the first thing I noticed at the top/side views. Correct, link should be perpendicular to the bell cranks.

I thought I read it here somewhere but I can't find it. Is the B6 top shaft the same as the B5M? And will an Exotek slipper eliminator work? Thanks!

Pulled the trigger at Tower on the B6 just now. There is like 2 in stock left in Champaign, IL warehouse.


Funny watching it jump in and out of stock the last week. Like it trickles in or they find boxes fallen off the skids around the warehouse?






I'll race the B5M FL for the rest of the season on the real dirt outside.


If I buy the B6D it will lineup with the E-cash for sure for max discounts.

The two shafts are different. The B6/B6D shaft is longer but the exposed shaft outside the gearbox should be the same. The eliminator should fit.

A buddy coming from yokomo said the B6D outdoors is cheating.

I have compared the lines of the B6 and B5 body. They are a bit different and don't see the bodies being interchangeable.

No. The B6 is wider up front.

I ran a tap thru my ballcups as well and now my turnbuckles are money! Usually I try to use the drill method to get them on, but the tap works much better

Any idea why angle ball cups? I know the kits don't use them.

The Wiki post, which is why we have it at the top of the forum, says..NO the B5 bodies will not fit.

Wiki posts, great in theory useless if people don't read them.

Yes they will fit! I saw one last night! You need to trim back the front wheel wells, and cut some of the tail off!
