What a missed opportunity.

The belt should run down the middle, the motor centred with the tension run going under and the slack run going over.

And they still cut battery tape slots.

Well, at least this leaves scope for me to finish my design.

I'm still not seeing an advantage of this over a conventional dual belt drivetrain. It has the same number of pulleys, so should have a similar level of friction.

with a single belt you can change motor positions like a TA07...

Also, with a single belt you only need one spare belt. Most designs require two or three belts, which are all different sizes and not interchangeable. So from a spare-parts perspective this is more maintainable. There's also only one tension adjustment to make.

Okay, from an adjustability and spares perspective, I can see an advantage. I do see many claims (not in this thread yet) that it's more efficient though, which I just can't accept without seeing some numbers to back it up.

Touring cars are full of redundant settings that make it possible to make the same adjustments several different ways. Why not have one more?
