Any ideas on how the kit setup will work with foams on asphalt? I know foams aren't used almost anywhere except here so I wonder how good/bad the setup will be

I had some similar belt issues with my T3/12, found that the top deck was broken! Hope it's not the case for you but...

I would tighten the belt more. My car did the same thing so I tightend the belt til it stayed the right way.

Hi

Are your spur mounting screws facing the rear the rear belt? If they are not the front belt can catch in the gaps in the little plastic guide, as the front belt is a lot longer it flops around a fair bit. A good idea also is to run the optional belt tensioner 303071. It tends to stop the front belt twisting after a while.

Regards
Todd

Make sure the Eccentric holders (bearing carriers) are in the same exact position left and right. Carpet track, is with the pointer pointing towards the top upper deck.

The secret to using the strap, is don't clamp the battery tight, or your chassis will be tweaked badly. Make sure you space the posts correctly so you can move the battery freely. Once you do this and with a battery in, and the screw done up tight then twist your chassis and you will see at the screw end, the strap will move back and forth as it is slotted. The other end will pivot on the ball. Its also a good idea to use the Xray alloy battery backstops.

I hope this helps.

I have it and found out that if you adjust it (using shims) so that it holds the battery in place it tweaks the chassis so I stopped using it.
If you adjust it not to tweak the chassis then the battery can move ca. 1mm front - rear.
I now use hudy tape to strap down my battery. Lighter, easier and faster. One piece of tape will get you through a whole day on the track.

thanks, I guess the battery tape is the best method, finding the hudy tape is impossible, it is sold out every where, any other tape that is just as good, I have the top stuff and it is total garbage, so really at a loss to find a good method to keep the batteries in right now

The top tape is probably the best tape I have used. Never had an issue with battery movement running 17.5 boosted and modified. One piece of tape front to back, and one piece through the battery slots going left to right and it won't move.
