Sanding and sealing carbon fiber 4

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.

Don't even know what a wiki is. I guess I do now.

Welp, it's after 5pm west coast and no manuals nor new items on the site.

Only real thing available are the two jc b6 bodies.

Doesn't matter. Manners are still manners. And people shouldn't treat newcomers of the Rc world like dirt because they may not understand something. I see too much of that in this hobby and it's ridiculous. Just treat people how want to be treated is all I'm saying. And maybe even be a welcoming person to newbies. It's how we grow as a hobby community and attract people to the same hobby you love. So what if you have answer a question more than once. Big deal, it's not gonna hurt anyone or anything.

Smile To all who contribute to the wiki's in all forums on RCTech.net

Good job on all the hard work. I do realize that it takes a lot of effort to post something like that for the benefit of the community. Keep it up!

We need people such as yourself in this hobby to grow and get better. Not everyone here is looking to keep you down. keep asking questions and we'll all try to help.

You seem to be confusing being "welcome" with spoon feeding. And having questions asked over and over does have very real consequences,plugging up search results and bloating forum archives. The search function and wiki are there for a reason. Did you even read the forum rules in the sticky?

Up at the top, there is a wiki. Read it.
And what exactly did socket say that treats you like dirt??? He simply directed you to the wiki.

http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...w-threads.html

You are breaking the clearly posted forum rules and yet you still insist we are the ones without manners?

While I agree with much of what you said, the point of a vehicle specific thread is to gather information, consolidate it and place it into one area--that area being wiki, so that people such as yourself don't have to ask questions that have already been answered. It's always best to read and search before asking, as repeating the same information to every new comer can be exhausting. Welcome to the hobby, ignore the pretentious dorks and outcasts who have nothing in life but toy cars, they will always be less than savory.

Did you preorder anywhere? Tower and Amain are pretty good about sending emails.
