One thing to remember is to check how long your grub screw is on your pinon I have had it catch on the belt and do some damage.

I've only been using them for a few weeks, but I haven't seen any rapid wear. I'm sure that they will wear faster than the stock belts. Just makes sense to me, but I wouldn't buy stock in them. They're holding up just fine and I haven't had to make any adjustments in the tension yet.

Well I got my Photon (USED) . For the last 3 days I have been going through it, cleaning, fixing broken parts, and just getting to know the car.

I have a spring question for you all. Do they make a spring kit? For the most part I have always raced X-ray? can you use those springs? I ask becasue I have a full X-ray spring kit, and well dont have any spring for the photon.

I'm using mine since almost a year on two Photons (driving twice a week) and none of the white belts have had much wear on them; the belts are superstrong!!

His lipo braces look to be a modification of the original plastic ones with some purple shims.

I haven't tried them on carpet yet, but Marcos J is running 10k in the rear on carpet. I'm running 10k also on asphalt.

Hello Tony. Regarding your fan setup pictured in the last page or two, do you get a better cooling effect just by glueing the fan to the chassis blowing on the motor as opposed to using a fan attached to a motor heatsink?
And on the topic of diff grease/oil, what viscosity grading system are you using? I've got a couple of u-pro gear diff's now, just running the rear straight out of the packet and I know I have to change the oil in the front for a stiffer action. 120K(?) i see is the go..
Cheers.
