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 track is not as flat as it looks and there is some interesting traction issues with the grain of the turf thats keeping people on there toes.
Not all turf is created equal.. When our turf was brand new I was heavily annoyed at how low grip it was..,, oddly enough a track down the road ordered the same turf and immediately way more traction was available... Plus every track change results in low traction till the lines are broke in. Guys are always going back and forth between the mini pins and the mini spikes depending on the track lay out. Dirt guys that think turf is just a joke and it's like a video game need to try it to understand it's not as high grip as people think... Plus, the fast guys run new tires because it's disastrous with worn out tires on turf.

And honestly, it was nicer than most of his posts..
I hadn't laughed out loud in awhile, but that did it.

I have raced once in the last 5 weeks.

And my next summer course and vacation are promising I won't race again for another 5 weeks...

Then fall semester starts...

If it wasn't for 4-10's I'd never see the track. 3 kids and a wife plus an auto detailing side business. Choose between earning extra money, mountain biking, dirt biking or Rc practice. This summer is probably out for Rc! And yet I'm still awaiting that b6!!!

A:The B6 diffs are 2mm wider (1mm per side). The new part number for the gear diff includes the needed spacers so you can run the B5 series gear diff in the B6. They are just using the rear axle spacers they made for when using the +4 C/D mounts on the B5. The small spacers are not needed.
are those spacers available separately? part #?
