You can probably take off the top tensioner and run the bottom one 3/4 of the way to the top. Running mod, I take off the top and run the bottom tensioner all the way to the top of the slot. (full tension) Play with it a little and make sure you're not skipping a belt. Are you running the stock grey front belt?

I use the front belt from the R12 instead of the stock belt. You may also want to pick up a set of the Aluminum rear hub carriers as a tuning option, get the 2 degree castor blocks, again, as a tuning option, along with all the breakable spares, arms, spindles, castor blocks, hinge pins, etc... I'd also pick up a P-Dub front bumper.

Ok..
What castor blocks are best..2deg or 4 deg (for speedworld)? All around or just front or rear? And does the r12 front belt make a big difference? Ive got the P-dub bumper..hopefully that will save me some $$ in the long run..as I am pretty good at establishing where the walls are!....any other suggestions...as i have been focusing on work(airf force) and college full time for the past few months..i have forgotten what i have been told....besides practice time

Don't know about speedworld but on every outdoor asphalt surface I've run on the 4 degree blocks have been better. As far as I know, the R12 belt is a touch longer and allows it to be a little more free. I think it's a little stronger too if I'm not mistaken.

For speedworld you want to go with 4 degree castor blocks.

4 degree....are those the kit supplied ones.... or are those the 2 degree ones?
man...with the past 3 weeks Ive had....I cant wait to get my schui to the track and just focus on something other than work and college!
Last week My Dodge ram got hungry and ate the front bumper of a mustang cobra....boy, did that set back the rc funds and my secret stash of stripper dollars
well....cant wait for a sunny weekend to get the schui back to the track....

feel free to ignore the rambelings of a drunken rc'er

The shock standoffs ?

They are a Ti racing part, back from the original Mission. If htye are still available, hobbyshops can get them from Shumacher USA. I htink Schumacher may have a a purple standoff now....
