hi guys, im new to the 08 world and enjoying it so far. got my car working very well and looking at doing a few little things to make it even better. i have a bit of a concern though regarding the wear in the rear belt. first time out, and after only 3 runs with a lipo/3.5 set up, the rear belt stripped ... or more like disintegrated! .... so i got the spare belt i have, slapped it on and have run 6 packs with it so far. although its still intact, it is showing very bad wear again and by the looks of it will likely give way after a few more packs.

i am running the standard pulleys (16t center pulley) and have set the tensioner to box setting - which is right at the middle notch in the bulkheads. tension wise, this makes it quite snug. but as mentioned, it dosent look like it will last very long and will likely have to change it after a few more runs. i try to drive smooth and im not very hard on brakes so dont think thats contributing to the wear... .and besides, its a common problem among the other 08 drivers at our track. we actually have a shortage of rear belts due to this, so as you can see, its a becoming a big problem ...

are you guys doing anything to avoid this from happening? as much as possible, i dont want to change the pulleys because the internal ratio is better for me when i run mod. are there alternative belts from other cars that are compatible or are there aftermarket options to consider? .... any help would be much appreciated!

.... appologies if this was asked previously, just dint have time to go through this long thread. thanks again!

This is why Xray sent the 20/34 in the EU kits later. You need to run the US gears. This will save your belts.

dodgeguy: i was affraid you were gonna say that. but thanks! kinda odd though as if im not mistaken the main reason for the 20/34 pulleys was to get the ratios required for stock-bl motors ... anyway, if there's really no other way then that leaves me no choice. thanks again ...

There are 2 rear belts on the 008. The US chassis is just a little longer than the EU car. So the US belt is longer than the EU. It had nothing to do with the pully count. I know this as I converted a US car to EU spec.

if you look at the spacer which surrounds the spur gear screws that looks like the orion logo.....

it catches ever so slightly on the belt under high rpm. if you chamfer the left notch of each spline of the spacer then this will cure it, if you need any more info then i can try and get a picture sorted out for you.

this will help dramatically with the belt wear, and will be perfect to use until you can obtain the US pullies
