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.

Medium grip is such a relative term. For $30, I definitely think the laydown is worth trying. The car just feels so balanced and has so much corner speed. If you truly have medium grip. I like this car so much. Easy to work on, corner speed for days.

We club race tomorrow night at LRH, and I have the rear shocks set up on the front of the arm currently. Really won't have much time to practice with it before racing starts. Just running 17.5 Blinky, wonder if I should change them to the back. Don't have any weights either except for battery weights (for now). Before paint I was around 1485 grams last night I think with a small shorty in there.
Whats interesting about this is just last week Hartsen preferred the stand up tranny at OCRC. It seems like they are narrowing ups the pivot mounts as well. I went by this afternoon and another one of the fast kids had them in front as well.

Finished cutting out the body and adding stickers at the track.



Running laydown with 6.5 on clay. Needed to turn the timing down, cut back the end points on the radio and still had to be easy on the trigger.

The car corners amazing and I had plenty of grip on our track with Primes in the rear.

Now I just need some track time to get used to all that extra speed.

^that. A bunch of went laydown and are not looking back. The speed is too much fun and I don't feel it lacks anything. I have no desire to go back to stabd up.

Kind of interested on how Laydown works in the low grip area of a B5R

Why wouldn't there be? They've been following that method since their inception. The only question will be time frame when it's out.

Anyone know the weight difference between the MIP puck system (all aluminum kit, orange plastic pucks, al CVAs, etc) versus the stock steel stuff with pins? exact weight would be great, but I can't remember if it was 20-35grams lighter?

I'm trying to figure out which brass D mount I'll want - 12g or 25g.

I'd recommend looking through the B5M thread.

My numbers may be skewed as I usually run drilled outdrives and Ti axles.
