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.

The horn is about .5mm - .7mm too small by the looks of it. I can't even line it up for the screw.

Yeah, from My B5, B5M and B44.3, they are tight but they are right.
I find that it's better to install the blue collar on the horn, then gently press horn on the servo with a hobby vise or similar. To remove, I just use a flat screw driver to slowly yank out

Adding front droop helped my push on my B6D.

Hey I just wanted to follow up on the servo horn for "Futaba" thing. I finally hammered it down with a small mallet that has one plastic hammerhead, made for wristwatch band link adjustments (can't post photos yet, cuz too new here). I basically had to slightly ream a new spline grove in to the servo horn. I was able to remove it with needle nose pliers, just prying it off. All good now!

Actually, lots is still there. If you go to the main page with setup links to all the brands/models you won't even see B6D.

However, you can go directly here and see B6 setups (as recent as 08/21/16):

Real close to Kurt's set up from Schelle

Thanks
Try lightening up the front spring. Go all the way down to green, and see how it feels. The pace the pros can push, plus the amount of brake they use in every corner makes their setup different than us mortals. Stiff front spring makes the car turn in harder, and easier/smoother to throttle steer out.

Adding weight can get you in to trouble too. Try going back to stock plastic. Between the 3 gear lay down, and extra front bulkhead weight, probably too much front weight bias for the grip the fronts can generate.

Default B6D Outdoor setups

Hi guys,

We have been working hard on low~med grip outdoor setups with the B6D in Australia and I've posted up some info on our latest setup sheet and what we have found. Any questions please ask.

Edit: Running stock

I can't search via mobile, so sorry.

What's everyone running for a battery? I picked up a Reedy 5300 70C. It was recommended by a local pro driver on the basis that it will be more consistent throughout the run on the track. It is however 60 grams heavier than the 3900 mah counterpart.

Im running the protek 4250mah pack. It's a full size shorty. There is, imo, no need for the slim shorty packs in this car.

Planning to get a b6d. This is my first 10th scale 2wd buggy.

What are some basic must have upgrades to start? I'm planning to run stock class at ocrc. Anyone know how much weight savings the titanium screw set and the turnbuckles give?
