Read your post again. Check the belt tensioners too, that they are tucked into their pockets and again does not come into contact with the pulley.

There's really only one way the front pulley can be installed. The Clicker assembly shouldn't have an effect on that.
It was a trans screw that was to long

Kal-gard prep and shine. Spray it down electronics and all and then go over it with a paint brush.

That stuff is the bomb. Just can't find it locally.

I use WD40 instead.

Would a Reedy 4.5 550 be good motor to run? Indoor, high traction track

how big a track?

I found that with a 5.5 Tekin on a 50 x 50 track I am gearing 11T pinion 62T spur and it gets me reasonable temps (150s).

On a 100 x 50 I gear my 4000 pro4 15/62 and temp about 160 after 5 minutes.

Yeah, Ricks a good guy. Would love to see more input from him on the thread, especially with anything on the way as far as further tuning options like stiffer rear springs, etc.

Heck, curious too about his thoughts on the RC Shox product like, especially the whole center diff setup.
