I have to say I have never had a topdeck break throughout the 10 years I have raced Schumacher touring cars... the Mi3 one looks a lot more fragile as well than the previous ones, but still, this came as a complete surprise. One more thing to stock up.
Yes,mine broked at the Y area.is this normal?or the 4 screw was too tight?

Is there any other pulley one can use, like the xray 34t one?, as it is hard to find parts for the 414/ta04

Thanks
I dont know what other pulleys work, just know that the 414 pulley does work

Randy, how many teeth does the 414 pully have?? Must admit i 'd been thinking about it - xray i know has the same belt pitch - and if theirs is 2 teeth then i'd guessed that seemed about right.

As for topdecks. Have had no problems myself, but i have seen 2 break i think.

I dont have any of my stuff with me right now, but the 414 pulley has 1 tooth less than our pulleys. Only problem is we have rounded teeth on our belts, and the 414 pulley is for the older squared off teeth, still seems to work fine with no excess belt wear or friction though.

Yes I broke mine first time out...I put it down to the fact that a marshal put my car down in a high speed corner in front of cars aproaching at high speed and one ran up my arse!!! I have ordered the new flex topdeck as well as the stock one
