Marcos, remind me to give you some to try...LOL.
good ole ASM. How have you been bro? I haven't talked to you in a while. I'll see if Michael Bruce has it in stock along with some other things. I don't want to pay to ship just a small thing of lube.....but if it works then hey....ship it away!

17.5,13.5 or 10.5 brushless. The pulleys are OK but I found the front belt to be a little long, there's no adjustment left once the tension is set. If it wasn't such a pain, I'd tear it down again and try a used (stretched) stock belt maybe. Overall though, it's alot easier to deal with the 2.16 ratio for brushless. I also run regularly on a smallish carpet track with foams.
I heard that the newer belts for the 18tooth pulley seem a bit too long. I'm mostly running mod some I don't need to run the lower gear ratio's but I may run 19turn every now and then and Hope I can hit the 5.2 ratio I like running the 10.5 at. Are people having problems with ratio's with the regular pulley?

Hey man everything is good....mostly just raising kids. Can you say 3 in college...with one more to go!! It's good to see you on the same thread. Remember those "old" schumacher days?

I have the new pulleys and belts and ran them for the first time last week-end. It was nice to be able to back down on the pinion size. Personally, I'm NOT finding any issues with belt length. Mine actually seemed to fit real nice.

the belts feel really good using the 18t pulley's with stock belts (62t and 169t)

Acutually the front belt feels so good I have chosen to remove the tensioner, it looks cleaner without it and has the proper tension.

hard getting into the low 5's FDR without going to a small spur and large pinions.

70t spur, 34t pinion is 5FDR on normal pulley&belts

outdoor closest i have got so far for 13.5 outdoor is 66/40 ~ 4FDR

Still feel the need for more push though

48dp pitch

Last edited by Woz; 01-28-2008 at 01:51 PM. Reason: pitch (64pitch wouldn't work), wrong pinion sizes

It's a stabliser, not a tensioner.....it's there to make sure theres no excessive up-and-down movement from the belt.
It should be set to be very slightly above the belt, not touching it.

Not a hardcore rubber tire guy but look this page http://www.petitrc.com/view_news.php?id=4553 for Phil Chambers - Starting Setup Carpet or Jean Marc Betticher - SITCC RD4, 23T or Jean Marc Betticher - CRF - Katana 23T

Hope that helpful
