I was missing two or three screws or small things I had extra of from running Associated for the past 9 years, but their customer support is usually top notch so I'm hoping it wasn't too much of a hassle to get that bag sent to you.

Are you guys running fans on both the speed controls and motors in the buggies, or just motors? Also, running fans on both the 6.1D and 6.1, or just one over the other based on the design?

Or Joona Haatanen`s.
I think the missing gear diff is a sign for you to go buy a ball diff

My build is finally coming to an end. This is my first experience building a kit, and I thoroughly enjoyed the process. Instructions were clear, everything went together seamlessly, and it looks like a pretty easy vehicle to service.
My last issue/question is, how do you guys that run indoor clay vent your wheels? Do you make holes in the rim, the tire, or both? I really want to get it right on the first try, thanks! Here's pics of how it turned out:

Default Aluminum rear hub

Hey guys looking to pick up the aluminum rear hub for my b6.1d but am new to tuning. What do the top holes ( facing towards the front of the car ) do and vice versa in terms of the link position? Do the forward holes raise the link at all? And the bottom ones lower it or are they different lengths? going from top to bottom? If so which position lengthens the link and which ones shorten it going from front to back.

It just really threw me for a loop trying to understand it. Any help would be appreciated!!!

It comes with this helpful sheet. The holes are all on the same horizontal plane, they simply change how close or far the ballstud is from the wheel, affecting camber gain. If you want to raise the link you need to use spacers like ballstud washers. Note that if you want to mount the ballstud low then you need a 4mm ballstud which doesn't come in the kit. I use 8mm ballstuds with the battery thumbscrews as spacers (and put the 10mm ballstuds on the aluminum piece of the chassis). I'm still learning what setup is most desirable, but I know these adjustments affect the roll center and camber gain.

EDIT: bit late

Oh alright I kinda got it now but when it says top row equivalent 3mm ball stud washer, does that mean that in the upper 2 holes itís equivalent to having 3mm spacers with no actual washer or is it saying to place 3mm?

also what do the different ball sizes do?
