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 went from a highly specc'd tlr 22 2.0 that podium'd at our nationals to a box stock B6 on carpet......... the B6 was waaaaaaaaaaaay better to drive. my laptimes were about the same, but i could reel off lap after lap after lap after lap at top pace compared to the inconsistant 22.

Question for you other carpet guys, or, maybe this is just a general question. Sitting down looking at the vehicles I have as well as a recent one I had, one thing I noticed is going from one brand to another, it seemed the setup that worked quite well used a much lighter spring package (this is from various caculations on spring rates for comparisons) than what I am seeing on my B6 for carpet setups.

I am curious in general when you guys go from one brand to another, but stay in the same general class, how often would you see big rate differences in what you would run? Reason I ask is that I am thinking of ordering some more springs to try or use the brand I have here as they should fit to try out a lighter spring setup than what I currently use.
I run yatabe greens rear and yatabe reds up front . Everything else is cavs setup for carpet on the ae website. I think on carpet you can run the same spring on a wider variety of track layouts . With the Yatabe springs I tqed and won 13.5 at my club tonight . I have more fun driving this buggy than my yz2 that i sold with over 100 races on it .

Running the same as a base too:

https://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/c...ieri_EOS_4.pdf

These springs I take it?

https://www.amainhobbies.com/yokomo-...s-1050/p417642

https://www.amainhobbies.com/yokomo-...as-800/p417646

have you run this in comparison to the springs listed on the setup sheet and have any thoughts on the difference in feel?

Here the track I would call has a few more bumpy sections, I am wondering if that could be part of the prob so may try next rate AE down on springs, the setup my daughter was running.

Just need a practice day ...

Yes those are the ones . Cavs eos springs were a tenth slower on the hero lap . I could hit fast laps more consistantly with the yatabe springs as the buggy felt more like my touring car used to.

How is this different from running 4 gears and thinner oil?

if I were to try this, would I simply remove just the two gears or the shaft as well?

Also, another benefit is more diff oil capacity. More consistent over the length of the run.

cool thanks. I'll keep those in mind. Is there a chart you recommend that breakdowns how those springs stack up rating wise compared to AE ones for comparison purposes (I know won't be exact, just curious for generalizations)

If I were to run a gear diff and try this, I'd leave in both shafts. Each shaft prevents the other from rotating. And the metal shaft rotating on the plastic housing might cause wear and misalignment. Just a thought.

Petit has a buggy big bore spring chart. I think some are measured and some are rated by oem. It's been helpful to me, even though it's not perfect. from the chart and the ones I've run, I would guess the Rear Yatabe greens are like an AE yellow, but with more pack at full travel.
