y'know, i've never even thought about checking the geared ratio
Might do so if i remember next time i've got the gears loose in my paws.
Belt ratio would be 39:18... 2.167 or 2 1/6

Those parts are so strong that when you hit something. something else will broke than those parts you have change now.
Stay with the original parts.
modern aluminium designs properly relief'd aren't that heavy anymore;
when you're looking at making niche low-volume products it'll be
cheaper to get alloy CNC'd than to do injection molding
Glass-filled suspension components aren't as stiff as the Carbon-filled TRF parts... about 2-3X the price.
I wouldn't use alloy suspension arms usually, prefer to let those break
instead of taking out the gearbox mounts or hingepin blocks.
