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.

Outside of the body, wing, battery brace and battery, this is what you can get with no aftermarket parts.

I just built a b6 gear diff and wow so smooth. Last week inbuilt a gear diff for my Rb6.6 and that must be the worst design and feel when built. Humans up again for team associated.

Dangit, I am also not running the stock body or wing with the light battery. Ok, it's official, I bring nothing to the table.

Hey there - I am very new to this rc world! I've spent hours reading on here - some great info but then again this thread does span hundreds of pages so forgive me if this has been asked..

I have the b6d and purchased the lay down transmission for it - since I won't be running the standup for the rear setup should I follow the b6 team kit setup instead of the b6d?

I'll be running on tight track, high traction clay, with slicks and a coating of traction compound. Thanks for the help!!!

Go check out Kurt Wenger's setup on petitrc.com. The B6 setup is geared towards high traction carpet conditions. Kurt's setup is a great starting point.
