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.

Wow, you don't get it. I'm talking about the surface you are currently mounting your esc and receiver to. On the actual chassis it self. It is "milled".

My electronics are not mounted on the chassis, they're mounted to the AE plate I posted.

Don't assume...

I'm talking in general...99% of people are currently mounting their electronics on the chassis surface. Do they not stick fine there? I do believe so. Our VRP weights look milled deeper than they are. You can run your finger across them and they are butter smooth. All you are seeing is the pattern left from being milled.

Cool. You kept saying "You" and were talking to me. That's what I was replying to.

I'm with Smiley here a bit. The chassis itself is not only milled markings but they hit the whole chassis with like a sand blast effect and then anodize. It is very slick for mounting anything. Trying a few different kinds of double sided tape and the ESC is still coming undone with the alcohol cleaning treatment.

In electric 1/8 and 1/10, I've found the gorilla brand clear double sided tape to work best. Super sticky, easy to remove.

Matt the 3M is the VHB clear gel looking stuff? Wildcat and Socket have given me their opinions on stuff.


I bought LePage (Canada Brand only I think) Indoor 35Kg stuff that is clear VHB stuff that was tacky to the touch and it did not work on the B5M on Saturday. I did get the Automotive foam based gray 3M body molding Super Strong stuff another one suggested. Still have to try it.

That Gorilla stuff is the first tape I've found that I liked. Smiley, I just ordered the AE plates, but I'm curious to see those VRP ones next time I'm over your way.

Yeah. Comes in a roll, has a jelly type feel to it. I've used that and the heavier duty gray 3m roll with zero issues. I used to tape my pack in with the gray stuff.
