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 tried my dangest to get a gear diff to work in my Durango SCT, went to ball diff and it was a completely different truck. Never tried it in a buggy though. A local AE sponsored guy tried it in the B5M and wasn't terribly excited.
Have a buggy on the way and may be stuck with the gear diff for a lil while.

I feel like it's binding when not bolted in still.

Didn't mean to open a can of worms with the bolt side. Just wanted to state what I did and if see if it mattered.

Anyway. I'm not sure what to do.. hmmmm maybe the diff is built wrong.. I'm a little lost right now. Mig by try to rebuild it and see what happens

See more towers at amain.

They give an idea on when they will have the front gullwing and the tall rear towers?

For you guys doing carpet or other high traction but have say "rumble" sections on the track, have you tried the tall rear towers and any comment on how well they work?

I have both tower types here buggy already setup with tall rears so could just give those a go on Nov 5th but would be curious if those who are in the know have ideas. One part of the track can be "rough" for carpet and when last running my DEX210F which is oriented more to carpet, I remember getting kicked around a bit more than I liked.

Since the down travel is the same only difference is the oil volume it should help more than hurt Imo. I do recommend running them in front of the tower though. If I go that way I think I will go with the schelle tower since it uses the short eyelets.

diff nut side topic....

It doesnt matter one bit what side the diffs go in the tranny. racer1812 alrdy told you guys like a million times this. Its a preference unless your building a 4wd wheeler or something like that.

if you THink it goes in a certain way. Fine, your right. Ill put it in the other way and guess what...its fine too.

Default Results 10/6 at highside.

Still couldn't compete with the Custom Works Rockets I raced against. But this B6D was really lightweight compared to my durango dex210 and B4.1.

I wonder if the diff nut should be replaced for those who feel it loosens on them and think it is because of on a certain side and the plastic material that is threaded is not acting like the lock part of the nut.
