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.

They have a time and place just like anything. Right now isn't the time and the place is in my bag.

Ah.

I'm sure with continued usage they're not true to their rating anymore.

I'll stick with the Yok and Kyo springs.

I haven't switched over my AE aluminum hubs yet from my b5m to the b6d but is it okay to assume that the ball stud height for the kit settings are the same for the aluminum hubs on both cars?

So on a B6D with lay down what is the best spring set up for clay (OCRC) track? If you have part numbers if different than AE please let me know. I have had my car built for over a week and have not had time to try it out.

I haven't had the B6D/B6 to OCRC. So no personal experience.

However, Kurt Wenger, the owner of Schelle Racing has been dominating 17.5 with his B6D, and his setup is publicly available. I posted the spring part numbers a page back.

All this talk about springs. Anyone buy a B6 and ran it on high bite carpet with the stock setup and springs?

I'm about to take mine out for the first time this weekend.
