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.

The diff is new. Not positive that your pucks will work. Only way to find out is to try it when you get the car.

They made a new part number for the b6 ball and gear diff.... But the gear diff parts sold separately all are compatible with the b5m...that's odd, furthermore the b6 ball diff out drives don't list as being compatible, but the cva axles and bones are compatible. A little bit of deduction based reasoning tells me that the b5m ball and gear diff will work perfect in the b6...can anyone prove me wrong?

ball diff: It will work with shimming. The outdrives have changed.

It's in the parts section of the B6D page on AE's website.

Spencer was running the aluminum stearing rack on his B6 so that seems like an upgrade that should help.

AE is teasing something new on snap chat looks like a new motor and something else. Maybe a ESC?

A new Reedy motor like Mach 4 or something? Or is it AE branded?
I wouldn't mind a new esc as long as they don't raise the price up with the Orion stuff

I don't have snap chat so any specifics on the new servos as far as speed and torque?
