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.

Yeah totally vague I know. But tough to describe. I think I'm looking for more response all around. More rear bite, more steering. Just easier to drive. I know that's a ridiculous comment.

I guess let me know if there are any adjustments/tricks that everyone is for sure doing.

I would have recommended a B6D with a laydown instead of the B6 you describe. There are quite a few differences that are going to take away to
much grip on clay.

Have you been to Petitrc yet?

I am running a B6D with laydown. See my post. Are you saying go to flat arms?

Doesn't matter though. PetitRc is a great source for setup sheets. There are
several for SVRC.

Will try that setup. Thanks Logi Maker.

Anyone else with changes that made a big improvement?

I am looking for the bearing inserts that space the hexes out a bit so I can run the 67mm driveshafts.

Spacing the front bulkhead 1mm livened up the steering quite a bit. The flat arms are more responsive than gull wing. The middle lower shock hole also made the steering more aggressive. Also try the schelle +1 front steering plates. For the rear, try running .5 up in the pills o Venus 1 up. Shocks in front of to tower add steering as well.

Thanks for this Chris Brown. Will give it all try.

I used this set up but only change things I could with the stock kit. I also run 35 front and 30 rear for oil. My shocks are also stock setup in terms of length and springs

I do have a lay down. I love the way this drives. Great starting point setup. I even took it of a loamy track and it handled surprisingly well using duratrax equalizer rear and ribs front.
