I have an aluminium pulley (aluminum if your reading this outside of the UK!) but this pulley is narrower.
Anybody got any coment on how to overcome this, a spacer maybe?

Also:
a/ I have heard that replacing the 17t pulleys with 18t reduces belt slip is this the reason for using 18t?
b/ Do I replace have to replace all 4 off pulleys or can I just replace the centre pulleys (the 18t packet 503222 has 2 off identical pulleys so I have the same problem as menioned above i.e. they are both the same in the packet and the layshaft is sloppy so I just want to replace the centre pulleys and leave the original 17t pulleys for the long belt)
c/ Does using 18t pulleys affect the internal ratio of the car?

Any help here would be most appreciated!


Regards,
Steve
I hear you on that one man. I wish there was a billet 18t pully kit for the whole car . I'd buy it !

Doesn't the new 2009 version of the E4 address a lot of these issues? I think I read about it on Redrc.net nd it was linked to Team Magic's site.

It would appear that the exploded view listed against the '09 car just shows the same old pulleys and does not differentiate between the side pulley and the centre pulley ref PDF link below which was posted on the TM website last year but has it listed against the '09 car

I think I shall use ligthweigh 17t pulleys in the centre and Aluminium on the sides to over come this problem as I need yo sort it out before Sundays racing!

I think that's what you need for the center pulley, part# 503236

The 18t pulleys change the IR of the car. They are used when running foam tires. The 18t pulley can only be used up front when running a ball diff. If you’re having belt-shipping issues try the new PU belts they are a little tight at first but they break in nice. The 09 comes with the new belts.

I have a couple sets of the old belts NIP front, back and center if anyone needs some. My 21.5s haven't even stretched the originals out in the 3 months I've been running them.

Mine like a 94/43. I have a good balance between acceleration and top end and the motor comes off around 120 to 130.

The motor gets way too hot at 4.2. We experimented and the car started losing time the further we got away from a 4.4 in either direction. It might just be my cars, but its the same for both. If my driving and my son's wasn't so awful, they would probably finish in the top 5 every week.
