But do you think I will have much of a problem considering I probably won't run anything faster than 13.5BL?
If you are only running 13.5 the stock belt should be just fine.

I run your latest setup with one minor change I ran a a front diff. Find this easier to drive on a tight indoor carpet track.

I like the setup only problem I found was I am generating a lot of grip and steering now, to much infact to the point that the car was grip rolling on some of the faster corners.

I turned down the steering travel, this helped in the fast following corners, but the car then doesnt have enough lock to get me round the slower corners and it wont change direction. So I am basically back to where I was with my original setup.

Any ideas on how to remove the grip roll but keep everything else.

Thanks Anthony.
