Default stretched belts

Hi guys,

Has anyone had any experience with belts stretching.

Car has only had three race meets, first meet was spot on, then was crap thereafter. I then noticed the front belt was very loose.

After tightening the front belt and loosening the rear, the car seemed great again.

I hadn't changed anything from the first race.

So I am wondering now had the belt stretched. I race 13.5.

Brad

They do stretch and loosen up once they are broken in but that's normal

I set the belt tensions when new and haven't had to adjust them since, it sounds like maybe you hadn't tightened the bulkhead screws down and the cams may have moved, I did that after changing the diff and being in a rush I had forgotten to re-tightened the screws

It may also be possible that the upper deck has moved from a shunt, in this case the belt tension could change significantly

Cool A little something from the Awesomatix thread

Here a small update what we learned at the first outdoor races:
I have tested at the Worlds Warm Up and now at the ETS race a lot. At the ETS, traction was quite high so I ended up with the Alloy chassis. The car was very very easy to drive, just had a little understeer compared to the "steerkomos... " The Yokomos were unbeliveable fast.

Default Front Roll Bar Tweak

Anyone finding their front roll bars tweaked from new in black 14 kits? The last 2 i'v had the front roll bar is not flat on the glass and end up with one link about 2mm longer to get them balanced? Not sure if it makes a big difference once its balanced but i'd prefer if it was flat..

My kit was the same, bars could have been packed better

I have 2 2014 Black kits. The roll bar for the 1st one was tweaked and needed immediate replacement. The roll bar for the 2nd one was fine. I had assumed I was the only person who encountered this issue.

Last night I was installing the stabilisers on the rear of my BD7 RS. Slight oversight in design by yokomo on the mount holes for rear bulkhead.

First the supplied screws a M3x8. Holes are M2 either a depth less than 4mm. You can't still deeper because you will run into the screw that holds the top and bottom half of the bulkhead together. Needless to say, I had to search for a shorter m3x4 , and hope it holds in a crash.
