can you show me parts of the belt tensioner.what does the belt tensioner do????????
Adjust belt's tension. The original 414mII only have one on lower deck. When you push the throttle, you will see the belt wabbling up and down. Which the power transfer can loss over there and unstable. I add one on upper deck like WCR to fix the problem. I use Square belt tensioner, but I bought the wrong color.

Yes...the SSG is most definately more flexible. Even the 3mm SSG shock towers are more flexible than 2.5mm normal carbon.....I noticed this immediately with my TA04 parts!

For long belt. The original 414 upper deck doesn't have that hole for extra tensioner. Only WCR and SSG does.

Hi Guys,
Just thought I'd throw something in here.
I am not completely familiar with the belt tensioner set up for the 414MII but is it really necessary to add an extra one?? It is actually better to run your car with no tensioner as your drivetrain will work better.
Unless your belt is skipping then I would say don't use one. They just add another point of friction in the drivetrain.
Belt drive cars are actually more efficient at full speed when the belts rise off the pulleys slightly therefore creating less friction.
A tensioner usually prevents this to some extent.
So in the end unless you really need them to prevent skipping the maybe do without them.

Just my opinion

Steevo
