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.

Funny you say that. I actually just finished putting mine on.
I do agree it's a nice piece...

Anybody using a different rear wing than the AE or J Concepts that is more durable? Somewhat of a newbie and I'm going through wings like a fat guy at Hooters.

I know this is blasphemy but I've been using the 6.5 precut losi wings. Those things last me forever and they're fairly thick. I just cut out the rear of the wing and pop 2 holes for the screws, takes a few seconds. They're pretty easy on your wallet too.

Pro line also has a double wing that you have to cut out. Its also high quality and lasts for a while. I'll get exact model names for you tomorrow if you need them when I go to throw down some laps.

Actually here's a link:

You can also try the pro line trifecta. I personally like these other 2 much better though.

I run a proline trifecta and I put a thin layer of shoo goo on the top and bottom of the wing over the mounting points to reinforce it a bit more in the area where it is most likely to fail and haven't had an issue on my 4WD or 2WD thus far.

I posted the same thing last year in the B5 thread! I had green springs stiffer than whites! The Kyosho springs are always right on the money.

I race with a Losi wing and an Xray XB2 body on my B6.... it works for me.

Since you are a rookie driver, I would suggest picking up one of the SWorks wings.

https://www.amainhobbies.com/sworkz-...800awh/p267311

They are made of plastic instead of lexan and will last a lot longer. They are heavier, but a new driver won't notice the extra weight up high like a more experienced driver will.

I still have my Avid springs from my B4. I think next practice day I'll test those. Only tried the Yokomo and AE springs so far though. I have so many things I want to try, but sucks when the closest track is 1.5 hours away!

Thanks! I was looking at those. Wasn't sure if they would fit the B6.

Losi just released their 2wd Stadium Truck, Associated shouldn't be far off.

Probably going to be called T6D or something wouldn't surprise me.

I kinda need it to replace my aging T4.2....lol
