Default Belt Pulley

Kraig,

Any chance you could measure the correct pulley?

Thanks

How can you tell the difference?

The Pulley I got is Black and is bigger then the stock unit... but what is the difference beteween the XXX-S and the XXX4 New Pulley?
The pulley that came inside the package is the same size as stock... just black. The correct pulley was taped to the outside of the package and is larger than stock.

Kraig, thank you for the fast shipping on everything, I'll be racing the car on Tuesday

I have a question on my motor mount, my last one was very smooth and free, but this one binds up and wont even turn when it's compressed into the chassis. Do I need to take material from the chassis or motor mount to get it smooth?

I guess that's true... wonder why this one binds up though.

Got my black belt in for today. The car was quicer coming out but I was fighting the handling all day. Had a nasty push that wouldn't go away. But the belt was noticable.

Alright, I might just hope for the same. I'll propably end up building another car to use more often than this one anyway, this is made to be a carpet car with the way I milled the chassis...

Are the new BK bones out yet? And what do you all think of the new pulley system? I need to get that and give it a whirl before the big race here.

Thanks,
J

Canīt say anything about the bones. But the new drivetrain really works. Much more runtime. Most people wonīt know but it was developed last year by GM-Racing Germany.
