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.

Or really, are there any bone options for the wide pivot that will allow the use of the MIP diff (aluminum outdrives)? Like maybe these:

It's these:

Couldn't tell you about puck driveshafts...I don't use pucks.

Hey there, yes they are cut gears but to make sure they aren't the issue I tried with the stock internals.. same exact issue.

The way you describe it makes me want to try it, but I got some questions first.

pushing everything 1.5mm out, how does that affect side bite? I run 5mm rear hexes vs the stock ones to narrow the rear of the car which has made the car easier to drive a little more aggressively in and out of the corners.

I have more but have to come back to this.

Make sure all the bearings are seated properly. Aside from that, try a new transmission case.

Bottom line, on the laydown car, this setup will never come off my car on dirt, period.

do you know if there are compatible bones that you can still run pucks and the wide pivot hubs?

I believe there is. Just look to see if mip makes their version of the losi 67mm bones

I'm sure this has been asked before so sorry but what advantage does removing 2 gears from the diff make?. I have seen quite a few setups that mention 2 gears.
Thank

They have bones for the losi's but it doesn't state their length.

Thanks for the help!

MIP #16131

It does not mention if they are 67mm or the stock length.

Okay, so you have me convinced to try it. I am gonna try it with the MIP axles as I do have pucks in the car now.

Only problem is I can not find the BMI spacers. Ive googled everything I could to try to find them and have no idea what they look like or what they do even. Their website is terrible, the online store does not work and their facebook page doesnt seem like its been used in years. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
