Hi Kevin,

thank you for the answer!

Ive got a nother question: the original belt of the TC6 is verry stiff I think! Do you youse the original belt or gives it something like a low friction belt for the TC6? Maybe from another car or another brand, or will asso bring another belt for the car in the future?

Thank you and greets

Dominik

Hi Dominik,

the belts might be a little tight fresh off the box but they loosen up very quick and with the cam holder having a big selection for tension you can get it loose enough. There is no new belt coming anytime soon. The one good thing about our belt is they last forever.

LRP motor question.
There was a debate in the pits at a local race about the timing inserts for the x-12 based motors.

When installed, should the dots be visible and at the bottom of the opening ?

example 2 dots visible at the bottom when the motor is assembled is neutral, would 4 dots visible when the motor is assembled be maximun advanced timing ?

Dots visible yes, up or down does not matter. The 2 dot insert is the exception does not make a difference which way it is installed. The other inserts will either advance or retard the timing depending on what dots are facing out. As an example, if you look on the back side of the 3 dot insert you will see 1 dot. Also 4 dot equals least amount of timing which happens to be 27.5 degrees.

No charge for the consult Keven.

4-dot = 27.5
3-dot = 32.5
2-dot = 37.5
1-dot = 42.5
0-dot = 47.5

You read the timing with the dots facing you.

Hi Kevin!
In the Setup from Bob Stellflue at the Reedy Race he wrote that he drives droop 2mm uptravel! What is the meaning of 2mm uptravel in this case?

Thank you and greets

Dominik!
