If you were to remove any of the bulkhead screws, you would want to remove the two closest to the center of the chassis.

Hi, Ive snapped a second rear belt again.

Since AE belts are expensive, I want to use Yokomo belts and diff pulleys.
Can anyone give me the Yokomo part numbers for these items?

A racer uses this setup, I want to use it as well.

Thanks

Replace the top deck with the itf top deck. Use 4 screws with orings and washers. You will have tons of flex. I would not recomend removing screws from bulkheads.

If you can just order the two chassis...I ran the Ft upper cut like you explained until I ordered the top deck, I just recently ordered the main chassis and Ill let you know how it works compared to the FT on Saturday...I would leave all the screws on there and try the o rings

Oops, fixed my typo in the previous post. I got a friend to tape my battery in for the next heat, but as I mentioned I was thinking of alternating batteries every heat, which would require a lot of battery tape and patience to switch them back/forth.

For what it's worth, I had threadlock on the thumbscrew/grubscrew part which is what the instructions recommend.

i dont have a problem with battery tape, i just undo the tape and pull out the battery still leaving the tape on the underside of the chassis and use the tape for about 6 or 7 more runs until it loses it's stick.

Battery straps also have a bad tendency to tweak your car too by putting too much pressure on it.
