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.

Can someone WIKI that thread? I would, but I can't seem to locate it.

EDIT - Nevermind, I didn't realize it was a post within this thread: Ask Ray Munday - JConcepts, Reedy, Associated Aussie Support Thread

I've picked up and built a few AE kits to build (enjoy that as much as racing) for fun and played a little, but no racing.

Now I've picked up a B6 and B6D. It's great to see the tech advances with Wifi radios, brushless esc/motors and LiPos. By far the most confusing to me is the LiPo technology.

Question time... AE's site says "7.4V LiPo or 6.6V LiFe battery (saddle pack, shorty pack, or square pack)". Looking around the web, the manual, etc I've only seen shorty packs used. How would you mount a square or saddle pack? What would really be best form factor for some stock buggy racing? Recommendations on LiPo specs?
Look for a shorty between 4200~4600 mah and a "C" rating higher than 65C continuous and 100C burst.

If you're racing at RC Madness he has New Wave, Max Amps , CRC and others at the track. If you race in Fitchburg, he has a few brands there as well like the Team Scream stuff.

You also should get a charger that does at least 10A. 20A is even better if your budgets gets you there, but 10A is fine for club racing.

Got my car built, all electronics in. B6D with laydown, neutral setup from manual. Ride height is higher than 23mm though. I let out the shock collars in the back and front, that lowered it some, but still at 27mm in the back and about 25-26 in the front. What should I do to get it lower?

Do you have the correct shock bottoms on? Read somewhere in this thread that there are two options.

Lol yes. Also, we will offer (like the towers pictured on my car) option towers that eliminate the outer hole on the tower that never gets used. By doing this, You now have the far outside hole which is the normal middle hole on the stock tower, your normal inside hole, then a new middle hole between the two.
