I'm pretty sure that the 16 is gone ... I think they increased the size of the front pulleys for the front axle ... like the Shepard

I have no idea but I wouldn't be surprised if they have NOT done that. The 18/27 pulley deal is something Shepherd came up with AFTER Robert left and many Shepherd drivers don't use it.

One of the changes was the overal ratio, I believe the 20/48 on the rear is changed as they have done it on the Motonica.

So any idea what other bits may be interchangeable? Pinions? Spurs? Belts? CV's? etc etc.

From what I was told is that most metal parts like shafts, dogbones, balljoints, gearbox is the same. I think when mounting a MRX4 front upper wishbone you can use the normal front uprights.
The rear upper wishbone was the same. The lower wishbones have a different shockmount but it would not suprise me if you can use the MRX4 wishbones with a homenmade carbon adapter to get the right schockmount.

Hope the 5 will not strip the belt as often as the V8.

I have been getting the same belt life on my V8 as I did on the 4x. The only reason I stripped the rear one in the main at the Nats was because I didn't replace it when I should have. I knew it was getting old but just didn't have the time or energy to make the change.

I've never stripped a belt on my Shepherd. They really do last a long time just as the Mugen belts did on their cars. I've seen the way some guys set their belts on their cars. Some guys will pop a chain if that's what they had on there. Most of the time it's the DRIVERS fault. I've NEVER gotten a bad or weak belt since I've been racing.

So is it lack of maintennance or too tight a belt tension that makes belts strip?
