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.

J Concepts Stock Nats at OCRC in Huntington Beach, CA

Expert Stock Buggy

1st Steven Hartson B6d with laydown tranny
2nd Casey Becica b5m with laydown WWHD tranny
3rd Kody Numedahl B6d with laydown tranny

Great results for AE. Casey is a privateer and led every lap except the last one. Pretty impressive.

And a shorty servo....

The car out of the box is under weight... you will be adding some. No more hacking away to chase the 1499g dream.
