hi..

I got curious and managed to find a Fk05 front belt, installed it in my cyclone and I notice that the belt is a bit tighter than the normal cyclone front belt, for someone that put the fk05 front belt in, is that normal?
and I also notice that the drivetrain is a bit more free than to the normal cyclone's front belt.
I'll give it a try this week and let you know how that turns out.

You can always slacken the belt off using the bearing holders on the diff if it is too tight.

skill. yes, that would be my next course of action, however I wanted to wait till I get a couple of pack on the belt, it might loosen up.. . . I'm just wondering if other people who put the Fk05 front belt have the same problem initially.

Could someone do me a favor and post close up of the rear diff from the top of the car. Just wanted to look at something vs. the way I have my setup with the spur and one setup. I did notice the once I had the car built that the one way on the shaft has to be on the other side!!!!!! Found that out when I had a motor hooked up to run the car a tad and only the front wheels where turning. I read post about it but thought they would of fixed the directions by now.

I seem to have alot of slop is I keep the two idles gears tight to the spur gear. If I space the idler out some I can take away the side to side slop. Just wanted a close up of maybe some of your setups.

Thanks

manual error.
there should have been an addemdum sheet to place the one-way pulley on the left side of the car.

when I had mine...there is some space between the spur and right pulley gear to miminize the side to side slop.

1pic is mine..

2nd pic is Hara's from Vegas.
