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 kinda want to buy one even though I only go racing like 2-3 times per year. B5 rear motor always left me slower than I would have liked, and now I'm going to be really outclassed.

I think I do, dirt looks like narrower in rear but could be playing tricks on me. Maybe the same chassis.

I don't think they are. The bottom shot of the B6 has the holes for the stand up transmission's waterfall. That side by side photo isn't perfectly to scale, the B6D looks smaller in every direction. I first noticed it looking at the size of the servo.

I took both pictures from the AE website and stitched them together. I agree that the B6D picture seems to be a bit smaller than the B6.

Same car, pictures taken at different times and placed side by side to make one picture.

The distance between the car and the camera are different which would explain the size dimension differences.

I like the battery hold down. Seems to have a clamping post that you set to your battery height then the nut (same 7mm hex as the wheel nuts) is tighten down. No more servo taping your lipos down.

The car looks great. The pretty much addressed every issue I had with the b5m. even the little clamping stops on the battery strap screws is a nice touch. no more battery foams. one piece front hubs. 1 piece alum chassis. And it looks like going from laydown to stand will be easy and cheap for most tracks.

Having the same impression. WE drive on loose clay and there is no reason to abandon the B5R...even the B5M has to be highly tuned to be as fast as a B5R. So no money wasted here
