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.

I doubt ups is even shipping on the 4th so even if it was very early July our kits would be delayed atleast a day or in my case my Nero won't be here until Tuesday or Wednesday i assume

I didn't see this explicitly covered in the wiki -- can you put a B6 gear diff in a B5M?

I ordered the B6, but am going to keep my B5M for my son and will probably throw the gear diff in there if it fits, just for easy of maintenance/durability reasons. I'll definitely be using a ball diff in my B6.

i dont think so; according to this post a few pages back:

Team Associated B6 & B6D thread

the b6 gear diff is 2mm wider than the one for the b5. you can shim the b5 gear diff to drop into the b6 but not visa versa

I should have a B6D next week in Australia, getting a bit worried about part availability.

Amain has nothing listed, LA parts has them listed but no stock of spares.
What are you guys doing for spares?

Parts should be available on or before July 11th. From rc10.com, your LHS, etc.

Also the car is VERY light! I built it with only a few option parts and only 1 of them being lighter weight which was the Ti Turnbuckles and weighed in at 1498 and that's with 25 grams under the battery, it is the Reedy 3900 low profile battery though. So if you add just the AE Ti screw kit & light weight body you will easily be able to run a full sized battery and the brass C mount and still be under weight.
