the original MSX belt will work using wide pitch pulley from MSXX??? i do realise i can set the belt tensioner, but will it be too tight considering the white (wide pitch pulley has 36T)

Nope, There is plenty of range in the tensior to set the belts to the correct tension. Both the original 3mm black, and the white ones will work.
Obviously the MRE belts are slightly longer (but only by a tooth or two I think), meaning you can have the tensioner set tighter.

However, if you want to run 18t centre pulleys, then you will need new belts, no way round that.

Ed

Right guys, just thought I'd post my setup from the KO GP this past weekend. Didn't do too brilliantly myself (lack of racing recently, driving crap etc), finished 3rd in the C in 27t, but Jon Winter (whoose adjustments are in red on the sheet), TQ'd and won 27t, setting a new track record in the process..... so it's pretty much there

Regards
Ed

EDIT - Spotted a mistake on the sheet. The Rear suspension blocks should be A/E not X/D... opps

Question to the people out there using the 501x pulley. What pulley are you using on the front of the car? Is there a 37T pulley that will fit the MRE spool?

I`m using that normal 36t pulley with spool up front in my MRE. In the middle 501x 18t pulley so IR chance that 2.0 vs 2.25
