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.

Someone on the FB page was asking about a particular dudes wiring and how clean it was.

This may seem like a dumb question but it was brought up that "he's probably using a PCB board" and I just wanna know does that even exist??

Also with the draw of 17.5 not being a ton like mod has anyone tested smaller 16g wire like the 12th guys use?

I haven't seen anyone using 16 gauge but 14 gauge I have seen used on other 2wd buggies, in particular for the connection to the motor.

Personally, I need my skills wayyy up there first before that will make a diff lol.

One thing you can look at too is that some 12 gauge wire as a much thicker rubber "sleeve" than other wire.

I use the TQWire 16 gauge, I haven't seen any drop in performance. I scanned with an IR camera and didn't notice any heat buildup from resistance. That's as far as I've gone scientifically to investigate.

Go to Petit Rc find Ryan Cav's setup it works great on carpet. Pistons are machined 1.6 1.7 and yes they make a difference. lots of extra parts from there to make it really go, brass front steal plate, sway front and back. Once its done it really cooks!

So what is everyone's opinion of slipper vs. locked for Stock racing? I run on medium to high traction clay and I've tried a few different sets of tires and made a few setup changes and it has got better but I still feel like I could use more rear grip on mid to exit of the corners, especially if there is a jump right out of the corner and I need to really get hard on the throttle to make the jump. I find myself losing forward traction and have been thinking it might be to running the slipper eliminator. I am thinking this weekend of throwing the slipper back on and trying it.

Other than that, I'm loving this car!!!

Oh btw, I am running the B6D with the laydown trans and shocks in front of the rear arms.

Cain I'm more looking at smaller and easier to hide wire. I like my clean presentation in the pits lol

Thats exactly what i was looking for, I used to run the TQ 16 in my 12th and with the lower weights of 17.5 2wd these days I was figuring it "could" work.

I am running RCShox Slipper pads I had from my days of the SC10 4x4 and they work excellent on carpet, no fade. I am assuming Mckune (sp) pads are similar and will do the job as well.

Made a quick tower brace up. I have cracked a couple on the narrow area where the shock bolts up. This should give it a little more more strength
