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 was just looking at your website. Nice photos of the LRH Race. Go get yourself a B6! I just built up one after being out of it for the past few years.

Thanks so much Mellow. Raced for about ~8 years and sold everything to pickup camera gear...but hearing chassis' slap and tires screeching has got me hooked again. Good to hear you got back into things too!

There was no "mission". And you're either wrong about the avatar, or you're wrong about which mod you're referring to.

He's gone, end of story.

Thicker front oil / more caster / more front toe in, do one at a time

Im not new to RC cars just new to Buggy's. I have a couple of Traxxas Slash and have taken one completely apart to put a LCG chassis on and rebuild the transmission. thanks for all your help!
you could get done in 4 hours but I usually piddle around and remove stuff off old cars and break it up, I'm usually around 8 with it ready to roll, body on ready to rock.

You do know the mod in question and socket are real life friends and have known each other since they were 14 years old? But it goes like this. Let us say I have a friend working for me. I like him most of the time, but he is causing unrest with the other employees. So I let him go, for the good of the group. Not much of a difference here. Also, those 2 chat all the time on FB. Just because you are friends with someone does not mean everyone should have to listen to your "troubled" friend. My understanding is this "mod" stood up for Socket as long as he could. But eventually, defending him became harder and harder.

I know you're talking about me and you couldn't be more wrong. If you have a problem with me or something I did you are free to pm me and we can talk it out.

You all are incredibly wrong about the situation that led him to no longer be here. Stop spreading the rumors like you have first hand knowledge....because I guarantee you don't.

Loving my B6D in stock class on dirt. It was so cool, we had so many different buggies racing, five RB6's, three B5's, one 22 3.0 (mid), one 22 2.0. one Durango, one B5M and my B6D.

The top 5 of us all had different buggies. Although on target to take the TQ, I screwed up twice and ended up qualifying 3rd.

The previous race I had a turn-in push issue. It was mostly fixed with moving the front shock to the inside hole on the top and dropping front spring from White to Green. I was going to try Black next but somehow I only had one of them. I may go to brown or up one spring rate in the rear.

My motor (Fantom Apex V2) is also 3 seasons old so may be time to update. I won't ask for a motor recommendation, since I know the answer is a no real answer. Honestly I barely have run buggy and only when I had no option to run my Truck, really more of a truck guy but dang it this buggy is converting me.

Or rephrase "what camera gear do you use to take pics of your B6".
