Had a center belt pulley break off the black ring portion that keeps the belt in place. Be sure to check these because when mine fell off, it locked up the drivetrain and cracked the top deck. Just a few drops of CA and the pulley is fixed, but I wish I caught the issue beforehand.

definitely a known issue.

Xray T4 pulleys work and won’t come loose.

I had the same thing happen on Friday to both pulleys. I had read the warning on the Yokomo website so I was checking them often. I caught it in time, no damage and easy fix with CA.

I only adjusted the front camber link after my first run with it. Yes that ls me that made the main. Thanks for the congrats. The car felt great after this change. It does become a bit responsive in doing so.

Despite this recent big race success and how great this car has been for me right out of the box and the desire to try the hard carbon and magnesium chassis options, I am still convinced that mid motor/equal belt length designs are the future. I also bent my stock chassis in a really bad "tick boom" incident soooo... since I had to get something anyway, I ordered the Arrowmax Medius conversion via snail mail direct from Arrowmax (not sure if it was really in stock anywhere else).
I don't like how spread out the electronics are on the Zero Tribe and Cox. The Rebellion looks fantastic but it's very expensive and I have a lot of cars in the stable that I'd like to buff. So Medius it is

I also just found out that the drive pulleys are 19 tooth so 2.0 drive ratio (T4 conversion pictured so no shorty option on the BD9).

I will be getting a BD9 Aluminum Kit and AM Mid Motor Medius Kit soon.

Rebellion-RC announced a new tunable flex aluminum chassis ready in about 3 weeks or so for their mid motor kits too. Interesting. I don't think they had any aluminum chassis version before did they?
