Nope - belt tensioner fit just fine for me with FMC. Why can't you use the belt tensioner?

It isn't sitting right, and the belt is to far over, and belt rubs on the carbon. Will take pictures and put them up later

Is there a rule of thumb for setting the belt tension? Like 3mm slack on center of the belt?

Problem resolved, the hole in the top deck was a bit to small and the belt tenisoner wasn't sitting right. But drilled right now

If you are saying theses belts require less notches than kit belts
That would be good, as it would align the diffs closer to lowest possible position

sorry other way as in they were much tighter then stock belts, so the front and rear diff do sit a little higher.

Ok. So I have the option to get a brand new 2014 car, As a trade. Is it worth it? Or should I not mess with the 14 and get a 2015?

Is the 2015 a far superior car?

Not a big difference between the 14 and 15. Lower chassis is interchangeable.
