Protc3 - That's what I'm thinking it might be also? I may have set the guides slightly crooked maybe and that with the loose fence is rubbing on the belt causing it too weaken??

To everyone - how does your belt look after a race meeting?? As mine looks worn, like a feathering only after a couple of runs? Which may point to it rubbing on something?

Thanks everyone for your ideas, as it really is frustrating, I'm really starting to get the car handling awesome. This is the only thing holding me back with it.

So once I've got my Schumacher order with my parts in it, I'll rebuild it, double checking the guides and fences and I'll let you all know how I go on the weekend.

Just a thought but you're not running the alloy spur gear adapter are you? It seems you've tried everything else! Check the screws that hold the spur on the adapter aren't rubbing on the belt. This was the cause of my last belt shredding until I countersunk them.

Anyway, if I can bother you guys some more, would anyone know the part number for that or a pic of it? I'm already in touch with our schumie distributor here. I got a bunch of hop ups from them (the pretty purple ones) and i can't wai to try out the car again.
My post [here] should explain it all for you jayps, there is a pic as well. The spacers should come in the same packet as the towers or riser plates. As you dont have them any 2mm spacer should do the trick, the spacers you use to adjust the wishbone location between the pivot blocks are 2mm and should fit nicely.

anyone strip screws in the alu bulkheads?
They're made of titanium and a bit oversized and easily
rounded, but I felt like the culprit was the threads
in the screws or bulkheads.Dremeling them
out seems like the easy solution but just to my luck
they're all countersunk and since they're
holding the two most expensive parts to replace
on the car I'd rather find some other method, any suggestions?


Also regarding the earlier post about rear belts snapping
I managed to snap one hitting the brakes to avoid
the curb while using a bl motor and the aluminum
pulley, it was the first time I pushed the car to the extreme.
Could it be that the open design is contributing
to this, also the cars little belt slip say compared to
the xxxs?

Ian- if you have an aluminum 20 tooth, and it is nicked or damaged in the slightest it will cause the belts to frey and snap in just a few runs (i went through new belts in 10 runs or less). I didn't believe it at first (mine had one small nick- maybe .010 in dia), but I put on a virgin pulley, and havent had a problem since (months ago). You should get the RW delrin pulley, they are NICE!

spastik_m- Two things about the Ti screws. 1 you need a really good allen driver (no ball end or L-keys), and 2 the screws should have tread lock or be OILED. I know it sounds weird, but the aluminum needs to be protected from the titanium, as they will gall together if they are assembled without anything. You can try using a product called PB blaster (penetrating lube) applied with a needle oiler through the opening at the rear of the screw. Allow it to sit for a while, then try to TIGHTEN and then loosen the screw. You may have to tighten and loosen the screw in increments to get it out. Good luck-Jeff

i love this setup..my times are over 1/2 a second faster each lap. plus, (a big plus), its much easier to drive fast. the setup reminds me a bit of the way the old '99 sst felt when using that great only good for one run tire, the s-3's. anyone remember them days????...lol
mo's car was on rails at that race. it was interesting to see if anyone would finish on the same lap as he did.
