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.

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
how are you going to do this? I saw ine guy in shapeways who offers shock tower spacers 4mm and 5mm thick to do this.

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.

Thanks Jon and Thanks cain! Ill pick up the de or the monos

Hey guys, figured I'd share some weight savings pics for the tranny. Although not much, it should help with rotational mass over powering the motor on braking and acceleration. And since I run a 1s motor, a little less to slow up would help.

This is the MIP top shaft, the RC Speed Secret cut gears and a smaller spur pinion combo.

Stock internals with 69 spur and 30 pinion


Cut gears and light top shaft with 66 spur and 29 pinion.


I haven't decided if I want to upgrade to the bi-metal MIP out drives yet. I had the pucks before and I was not a fan. Does anyone know if MIP has the out drives for bones?

What's the shaft size on that pinion? I don't think it'll take a 540 motor shaft.

Those work well. Also go to www.175rc.com. They have a full range of polymer pinions. Been running them in my buggy and truck without any issues.

Default Building Transmission

I am back in business with the new outdrive. I am just about to button up the transmission and it shows 6591 Diff lube on the gear diff. How much should I put in? Just a drop or two? Thanks!

Run the short on the front and the rear when using the Schelle Tower7

This will be an interesting experiment. Let us know the results.

Or you take a wing without mounting holes, hold the leading edge 10mm from the shock tower, Mark it and drill the holes from there. Don't let the dimples in the wing scare you
