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.

The team have been running 1 degree up on the C &D pills lately. This would give you 3 degees toe-in and 1 degree antisquat and a HRC. Looks like he added .5mm spacer to give overall 1.5 degrees of antisquat for more forward bite. Looks like the grip was there but overall with the pill locations and such he was wanting more rotation in the corners on the tighter layout.

What the heck are those tires?

When using the offset rear hub inserts and 67mm rear bones it makes the car squat real hard under acceleration and adds plenty of grip. Lately most of us have been using a tad more antisquat. That's what he was doing by using the .5mm shim under the c block.

Actually watching the Jason interview with Spencer and he talks about the offset hubs AE is developing and mentioned it adds grip in all aspects. Can't wait to see when they come out.

Just finished watching it too. Seems like we're still kinda scratching the surface of what this car is really capable of. Scary considering how good it already is.

Re: The shock pins Rivkin is using.
What's the diameter on those? I have been imagining something like this for years but never got around to doing something about it. So do I need to drill the screw hole larger?

Also, i don't know why he drilled the set screw hole right on top of the pin instead of two between each of the mounting holes. Just back out the screw - move pin, screw back in. Wouldn't need a 3rd like the way he does it.

Would be really bad *ss if it was a ball detent pin but there would probably be some material strength issues. (it would either require drilling the same holes to realize the function itself, or the pin would go all the way through the arm and detent at one end or the other.

Maybe he machined the pin diameter down to fit the stock hole or down to 3mm and drilled arm out. Also, could have relocated the recess in the pin to where he has it located.

Edit...Actually looks like he drilled the first hole larger and the second is smaller. Maybe stepped down diameter?

Raising the C block definitely creates more pin angle up at the front of rear hinge pin, which creates more anti squat but it also does something else

since when did tebo start driving like such a d!ck? A1 and A2 several "questionable" pass attempts. 4:05 of A2 he looked like he just totally meant to drive through rivkin.

Question for you guys, I picked up a B6D for my daughter that came with some upgrades like the schelle slipper setup. How much of a performance difference are you guys seeing running this setup versus running say some garolite style pads (Mckune, RC Shox) on the stock setup (I am running this works great). Trying to keep things similar between us so not maintaining one thing special. The garolite pads work excellent, no issues there, but if there are things to the schelle setup that are work keeping around I am game since it came with a whole lot of spur gears.
