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.

Our local track owner got a B6 yesterday. AE did some testing here so they sent him a kit for letting them use the track. Pretty cool.

Thanks for trying to help, but I posted that right in the post that you quoted. I'd rather have had the shorter bodies but I can just buy them or the tower. No big deal.

The rear shocks being the same as the truck fronts has been talked about since the car was announced, not sure how you missed it. But at least you have an option to still use the longer ones.

Yeah, after I make another purchase. Like I said, not a big deal, but it wasn't listed in any literature from Associated that I've seen. I don't eat, sleep, and breathe RC so it's possible that I just missed it. Just wanted to give a heads up to those that missed it as well.

So I tried to order a b6d from LA Partshouse today with the 10% off for the 4th and it says sold out. Called and guess they are sold out of what they may get on the 11th so they will not take any more preorders.
That's crap as I was looking forward to my 10% off.

hello every one. First post on rc tech and i like what i see here. I race at trcr in tacoma with my b5m light,. t5m, and in a few weeks a b6d. I looked at the b6 and the b6d manual . Both are high quality cars and the build should go well but im sure a few duh questions i will ask. Btw, my last rc racing was back in 1987 so go easy.

Welcome back into the hobby! If you stick around in here long enough, you'll see a bunch of "duh" questions and might not need to ask them yourself. My advice is to read the thread from the beginning -a little long, but worth it- and you may answer some of your own questions that way. Use the first page and wiki, they have tons of information in them. If your answers aren't found there, or if you're still unsure of something, ask away and most of us will be glad to try and help.

You can get better than that at Tower Hobbies with their coupon codes. You can pre-order all you want and they will have stock for sure for anyone after the pre-order list as they get so many.

What battery weight is Ryan cav. Using on his b6 eos setup? All I seem to find is the servo and esc weights.
