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.

Just built my b6d. Gotta say the build quality is phenomenal. Only issues I had was I needed to use shorter screws with a savox servo and shorter screws on the gear cover since it wanted to hit my motor. My only complaint is the new Pistons are even looser than the older ones, virtually demanding the machined ones. Built with long shocks and tower.

Can't wait to hit the track

There is other good ones if you search B6 Servo Horn on AMain.
The AE B6 aluminum servo horn pushes the ballstud a little far forward than ideal for the Savox -- the steering link isn't perfectly perpendicular to the chassis, and is at a slight angle to the bellcranks ballstud. This adds mechanical expo to the steering.

B5 aluminum servo horn with no washers would probably be ideal -- like the B5/B6 plastic horn.

Plus id have to run a cooling fan on the esc and I don't wanna deal with fans.
The track I race on is small anyway and I wouldn't be able to open up a 5700kv.
Hey man. Is you're 4600 a 2pole? I'm building a B6 for carpet.
I'm going to run a CC 4600 2pole with a CC sidewinder gen1 I already have to get going. What gears are you running?

Anyone notice these shocks get super squeeky? I had someone rebuild my shocks for me, as he was taking all the blue anodizing off my car for a fee.... Wondering if taking the anodizing of the bottom caps on the shocks may have lefty some room for air to get in? It's odd all the shocks get squeeky even after changing oil and re-bleeding. This normal? Anyone else remove anodizing from shocks? Thx

What pill changes can I make to give me more rear grip on medium clay? I have stock pill setup in a laydown car with brass 12g c block aluminum d block with shocks in front of arms.

Are you sure it's not the lower ball end squeaking? The ball may just be binding. Squeeze the rod end with pliers to free it up.

Try moving the shocks to the rear, should give more grip than the front.

Do I need to move the axle height up with this change?

The ones that came with the kit. Maybe I got the wrong wheels also... the chassis brace isn't even the right one.

Wheels didn't come with the kit.
