I also noticed, when turning the drive belt, that the spur gear looks like it wobbles by about 1mm..

Ive tried with the screws both lose, and tight.. maybe it just came this way?
I hope it wont be a problem :/
The screws you are using are too long. Try using screws .5mm shorter.

I actually used screws that were too long to begin with, then tried to find the shortest ones in the bag. I'll pull it all apart, and possibly file back the tips if i cant find anything shorter.
Thanks dude I'll poke back in with results.

There are 2 different types of cams for belt adjustment. Since you need 4 of the cams to complete the installation of the differentials, you have a total of 8 cams.

Both cams have an offset that when mounted up or down in the bulkhead adjust the height of the front or rear differentials respectively. The cams with the holes above the adjusting teeth have a greater amount of offset, which will raise or lower the differentials to their maximum values.

The correct screws for the spur gear are 3x5mm, while the upper shock mount uses the 3x6mm screws, as does the upper bumper mount.

I could be wrong, but let's see what the experts have to say. WD40 is not a real oil.... so I would say no...

Back in the day we use to soak the Yokomo belts in WD40 over night to loosen them up some. This worked back then so I don't see why it wouldn't work now.

i try not to use wd 40 it softens up the rubber to much i more or less want the oil to soak into the fiber strains so that they will streach ..

for everyone else i looked into and tried x ray 007 belts corally rdx belts and top belts for the synith (sp) and none of them work they are either to long front to spur or to short
