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.

You could try looking at the manual for the TC7. It talks about anti-squat and pro-squat and what they do.

The weight sets can be used to alter the weight bias front to rear, not just add weight to the car in general. These cars have evolved to a point where it doesn't just matter the total weight of a car, but where the weight is on the chassis. You can use the heavy brass C block and no plates up front, or use the weight plates with the stock C/D blocks and have the same (or close) total weight, but two completely different weight biases. They're just tuning aids to help you get the desired feel that you're looking for.

So I ran my B6D last night for the first time at OCRC last night. It was good but, know it can be much better. Current set up is
2-1x6 35wt White springs up front
2-1x7 30wt green springs in rear
Ride high 22mm front and rear
Lay down with brass C mount
AE D mount and AE front bulk head
17.5 with slipper eliminator.
Gearing 31/69
B5M Schelle rear hubs

Car really wanted to push in the turns on power. I was told to drop the front oil to 32.5 and gray spring and this would help.

Any other ideas? Thanks for all the help!

Reduce front droop and/or increase rear anti-squat.

The AE plates are out already. Ordered mine yesterday. The VRP plates will give you an option of companies to order from though. Looks like they offer them in 9g and 13g just like AE. Solid first post.

Put Wenger's setup on it and start from there. His stand up car was nothing short of perfect.

I saw factory settings had the caster block shim on the bottom of the caster blocks. Putting them on the top should give you tighter turning. Saw a bunch at ocrc doing this when the buggy was released.This is what i did with my xray xb2.

Eliminate the slipper.

Lighter weight but drivetrain will take any impacts directly. Only really beneficial when grip is high.

If he got them from eBay then they would no longer be on eBay....

Yeah I got mine off eBay. But I've heard AE will have them soon on their site.
