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.

Carpet tyre question above, yes to the schumachers.

Rears: Minipin 2 yellow compound with a tubby insert

Fronts: cut stagger low profile, yellow, no insert.

Minipin 1 has slightly less grip, as does as stagger rib, in comparison to those above, should you need to lose dorm grip at one end.

Default B6 carpet / ozite

The B6 is sick on carpet. The only change I've made from the kit setup is shorten the rear camber link from the inner most hole to the center hole.

Need to free up the car a bit, so much rear grip it's stupid. The odd thing is, I suspect our gray ozite doesn't have the traction that the new black CRC stuff does, but I need more steering at any rate. Running schuey yellow mini pins rear and yellow cut stagger slim low-profile front. You're mother could drive this thing. Rear end won't step out for nothing.

Any carpet/astro guys with ideas? Need a pinch more front bite. Is there a front tire with more bite than the one listed above? Considering trying the same stagger in silver compound.

Without knowing anything about what you are doing with option parts and setup....generally look at setup sheets from eos races. The cars all sport a front wing and brass pieces in the front. You are trying to make a car with a rear weight bias have steering. To do this you need to shift that bias towards the front. Both static and once the car is moving. A brass front bulkhead would be a good start. That kind of weight would help dig the front end going in to a corner and allow less transfer to the rear when exiting. Go to petit rc setups and have a look at the carpet section for the b6. Great place to start gathering the basic of ideas. Neil Craigg always has a balanced easy to drive car. Never a bad starting point for reference

Hard to do without the front and rear swaybars and chassis weights but Ryan cavs eos setup is what I'll be going with for a base setup.

Im about a page late on this, but I would not recommend sticky a$$ electrical tape for motor wires. Use snakeskin or heat shrink instead (or zip ties if you're out). And as for the ball cups, run a 3mm tap through them, the grease does practically nothing.

Grease doesn't work but Chapstick is dialed.

Unreal how many people are struggling with ball cups. Chuck a tie rod in your drill and run it in and out a few times. An extra 10 minutes goes a long way. Do all your right hand cups first, switch drill to reverse and do the others.

Anybody running a B6 on clay indoor track? (medium/high bite). I saw one guy running at my track and he was pretty quick. I gather if the gear diff is too sensitive for me... I can just get a ball diff.

I'd start with the Kurt Wenger setup. I really liked how balanced it was.

It can be found here:

It's no longer available on the AE website and PEtitRC direct linked to their website IIRC.
