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.

When you guys switch to the turnbuckle support brace, are you finding it stiffening or softening the car?

Quality and durability the two seem to be the same to me.

The Schelle tower is a little beefier with a little extra material at the critical points and it's lower height so the B6 doesn't feel too tippy. Try the front towers as well with the front wing mounts. They have extra material and the wing mount is so convenient.

I have the Schelle rear tower with the 31mm shocks on my B6 and my son has the stock AE rear tower and shocks on his B6 and we havnt really noticed a big difference in the handling between the two but we are racing inside on smooth astroturf, I would say mine is a little more responsive overall with the longer shocks.
The Schelle towers might have a little less material milled out of the center but I have cracked a front Schelle tower too, only a front. the weak spot is the narrow ears where the shock bolts up so the extra material in the center doesn't help much IMO.
Before anyone gets all fired up about me saying I have broke a couple towers, I'm not bashing on the B6 cause I love it, I'm just stating that the tower is a little weak in that area. I'm not the best driver and my son is young and learning to drive. Other than the tower we havnt had any problems

I ran one of the pre production versions and it made the car feel just like the description that Kurt posted on the Schelle site. I really liked it. I ran it both at a medium bite/blue groove outdoor track and indoors at OCRC.

hmm, wonder if rawspeed could do something like the schelle with there design, maybe move the "mounting plate" part that would join to the turnbucke to another location since they don't have center holes.

Unless it's super high bite clay would start with a ball diff and the longer rear shock bodies and taller tower. That's all I did to my b6 for dirt and it's great.
