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.

Start with Wenger's setup.

I'm running stock because I've never ran 10th and want to get a feel for the littler cars on a track. I do plan on going mod sometime in the future.

Since i had to purchase electronics batteries and the kit i had to budget some things, but I feel my choices will prevail.
I'm running 72/32 with that motor with the schelle spur and slipper lockout

What are the benefits of having the lay down? Is it just simple better aerodynamics?

Much more corner speed because lower cg & more front end weight. Plus alot more factors.

yes, but for another $10 or so, you could get the avid setup which is much better.

Oh yeah... I mistakenly ordered a schelle spur for this type of clutch and it's been sitting in my parts box. Might as well get the schelle version.... Thanks.

Is the Yokomo green spring softer or harder than the Associated green? What does that spring do for the car?

Hi Guys,

What is the best Servo Size for a B6? Is a regular Size to heavy? Or is it better to run a LP Servo?

I'm new to 1/10 Scale 2wd and I don't know what Servo Specs are needed. Is it hard to find an ESC with HV BEC?

Ive been told the protek 100ss is a good budgeted starting point. Obviously you can go with higher torque or speed from there. I ent with savox 1257
