I have the kit setup on this thing, what is the best way to free up the drive train? I have read about running the narrow rear pulley. Anything else?

Get rid of the front belt tensioner, it's not needed.

You can run slightly small dia bearings on the rear tensioner, and/or put an extra washer between it and the top deck.

+1 on Jonny's suggestions. I just recently went from using one 1mm spacer on the rear top deck tensioner to using two 1mm spacers. It made a huge difference. make sure the rear belt tensioner on layshaft bulkheads is at its loosest setting being all the way down.
Front tensioner is not needed however if you want it on just add a 1mm spacer.

I have heard people using a little Eureka pro lube their belts, thus rubbing a very little into the belts and letting sit for 1 to 2 hours, then wipe off any and all remaining residue. Its basically conditioning the belts.

Guys I bought the Lunsford titanium quick change shock mounts but they are too thin - they don't fit properly in the plastics shock caps. Any idea how to mount them ?

Did you use the kit plastic spacer ball things? If not, you need to.

Mine fitted really well, only downside I found was the posh alloy spacer ball things, don't fit over the threads.

Not yet & I had a massive crash the other week, flat out into a car on a long straight, which managed to bend the front drive shaft.

Does any one have any experience with the narrow rear belt drive set ? Does it really make a big difference in freeing up the drive train when running a 6.5t mod motor ?

I've got it on mine, never ran the car with the fat belt, but the narrow belt did feel better on the bench.

Yes the narrow belt is great. Drop the rear upper tensioner for a total of 1.5mm to 2mm works wonders.
