Flounder.......I have never had that problem on the Axis 2....I did have the motor screws hit the belt if they were not the round head ones. Thats a strange one I ran alot of D4's in my old car and never had any problems with them hitting the belt

Well, I think I found the problem causing shredding of the rear belt on my Axis ll. I use a Trinity D-4 and the can has that black crinkle finish that is somewhat abrasive. The part of the motor housing the output bearing stuck out through the mounting plate far enough to actually rub the belt from vibrations under power. I shimmed the motor side to back the motor out further. Any one out there using a D-4 in an Axis ll? Nice sight! First one I've found with a Shumacher thread
I think it is the screw from your pinion. Check if it's sticking out a little bit. If so it can hit your belt.

We are working with some fast guys all over the country to get a few really good setups to serve as starting points for drivers going to the Carpet Nats.

Ron Atomic has a setup that has him running lap times 1/10th faster with the CS27GLR's than with his best setup on Sorex tires. He thinks he can make the set up faster and even easier to drive so stay tuned!

Brian Jucha, Timmy Heiser, RacerX, Jeff Whitman, Pat McCarson and Dominic Favarito are also hot on the case.

We had a good run at the Snowbirds. There was excellent sharing of information among all of the Schumacher Drivers. Sponsored and non-sponsored. We hope to have the same occur before and during the Carpet Nats!

ADRIAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!hehehhehe havent done that yet so I thought I would take advantage. Anywho, did you get Ron Atomic's setup for the CS27's yet? I am really dying to try it out, it sure would be nice to save a little money and not have to glue tires.

Eric-

My adaptor rubbed the upper deck.....at the edge of the opening for the spur. I beveled the edge around the spur opening slightly....seemed to fix it.

Where is the adaptor contacting the belt?

With a green machine 3, start around 116/33 with the 17, depending on size of track. I run mostly at SoCal Raceway. Hope that helps.

SirSpeedy...its not rubbing very bad....but bad enough to feel in the drive train. I will bevel the top deck tonight.

Its rubbing the belt slightly on the side of the belt. Before I put the top deck on it rubed very bad and both front and rear pulleys wobbled. Not sure if the wobble in the pulley is what is causing it or not. But its not rubbing as bad with the top deck on...but the deck is.
