It's a slightly longer belt, with a different style pully ( tensioner
) I beleive it is to remove such a sharp turn it has.

Todd & Brian were running it at the Novak USTC.

Generally, set your ride height first (with tires on)... then remove the tires and set your droop... either by using the droop screws or by overlimiting your shocks and unscrewing the eyelets....

Some people will tell you to remove your shocks to set your droop but I would advise against it...especially on carpet with significantly stiffer springs....

He means setting the droop with shock length instead of the droop screws.

has anybody noticed when they got there kevlar gear, that it doesn't really fit in the gear housing. I bought one, and put all the bearings, pin(correctly), and it doesn't fit. I don't want to grind anything, cuz i'll unbalance it.

What's up Brad? When are you coming out next? Are you running the big race in March? I'll be running 19 turn if I have a car.

I took a close look at Kinwald & Lemieux's cars just now here at the Snowbirds, they are running a ton of new and prototype stuff. Should have pics up a bit later.

Among other things, they are running the new belt, tensioner and idler pulley, new towers, the BK bones of course, and a bunch of little stuff. Kinwald always has his own spin on stuff so that's worth a look no matter what.
