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.

WE have switched to AKA Rebars they changed it to loose dirt instead of clay. I believe other tires will also work.

This is the wheel you want, I chose the DE wheel because that's what you had. The Plus is the 60mm/2.4 wheel. This is the 2.2 wheel that works with the tires you had picked out. Good luck.

Only way the car works imo. We run em front and rear, and we run the thinnest ones. They make a huge difference on this car if you have it setup laydown

Good to hear... I picked some up and put them on tonight.. the thinnest one up front just seemed to limit droop but didn't offer any resistance on up travel.. changed out to the mid. Rear has the thin.
This is just desktop adjustments as it won't be till next week when I can get out to run it again...

Forgive me if already mentioned but what are people liking for steel chassis weights? I'm indoor high traction stock. Thanks.

It only happens when you put the two halves together, and I narrowed it down to the rub coming from the top-shaft area.
I ended up having to get a new case but make sure you set the bearings in as deep as possible. Seat the bearings lightly by hand and then use a 7mm driver to seat them in fully. You'll want to lay the case sides on something flat and hard and push as hard as you can to set them fully. See how that goes..

I was so frustrated I created my own thread for the issue here:
B6D Laydown Conversion internal Rubbing Issue

Hope it helps!

I'm running the Schelle long rear tower with the short shock eyelets and the shocks in the front of the arm. I want to try the shocks on the rear of the arm. Do I need to run the long shock eyelet when running the shocks in the rear of the arm with the Schelle long shock tower?

Ok guys I have a b6 lay down car that is dam dam good. The only thing I noticed was the when you put the rear shock on front of the tower u are moving the wing forward the thickness of the tower mount. I'm guessing about 6 mm has anyone tried running the wing way back in close to the position it would be in with shocks on the back of the tower? I think I. Gonna try it just to see. I'd emagine it would have more of a effect on high speed rear traction but that's probably it. And it might make it jump more nose high. If anyone's plated with this I'd like to hear your opinions. Thank you

It's been offered as a tip by BT and the team to run the wing about 10mm back of the tower when running shocks in front of the arm.
