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.

I just test-fit an old wing that I used on my b5m. The holes line up but you might have to do a little more trimming for the shocks.

Compared to my B5Mlite, I can push the buggy harder in the corners... in the straights, it's the same with the B5Mlite. The fan worked like a charm. had to put 3 layers of 3m double sided tape underneath it to take away that weird noise due to vibration. Motor was running cool and darn fast. My brother drove the car and broke this puny rear hub insert... do they make an aluminum version of this?

I have broken the same piece, i know this is a bit late but does anyone know of an aluminum replacement?

What is the difference in performance with your shock tower designs and the kits?
