Nope, you need a xray rear belt and a HB front belt. Also, in order to fit the mre layshaft in a msx, you need to either to file the layshaft to fit the msx bearing holders or fit mre ones with mre upperbrace.

I'm pretty sure the MRE bearing holders are not required, as the spacing on the holders is the same, from memory. I may be wrong though...

So.. just to clarify.. to put a MRE spur setup in an MSX, you would need...

3454395 - Direct Center Shaft
51213 - TA05 16T Pulley
..would the 9804263 - 840 Aluminum Bearing Holder fit, or just stick with the old plastic ones?

Is it possible to put the MSXX spur setup into an MSX with these?...
3454477 - Center Shaft
3454478 - Spur Gear Holder
3454479 - Pulley Holder
51213 - TA05 16T Pulley

..or 18T pulleys from the 501X?
Anything else? Just making sure I can use the parts that I'd be buying...
Why would two cars pretty close together use different spur parts? Is one set lighter than the other?

The plastic bearing holders need to be reversed but a very tight fit so you can file them down to fit nice. I guess the MRE is lighter being the spur gear holder is a one piece made out of aluminum where as the MSX is aluminum with a steel shaft going through the center. Plus the MRE uses plastic gears vs. the aluminum that the MSX uses.So I guess it would be much lighter!

Hi Guys, i tried using the 36T and 18T converted Pulleys and Belts, but im having a problem in Front Belt Tension because it seems that the front adjustment notch is almost second to the last slot but the tension of my front belt is still not that normal tight. its a little bit loose! what will i do? Thanks!

I wonder why all of a sudden they went from the MRE's 1-piece spur/pulley mount to the MSXX's 2-piece...

Ah.. so if you want to use the MSXX with a solid center, you'd have to go get the MRE's, and vice-versa?

by original belts you mean the white ones?? You can use the MSXX ones, I think the white ones are a tight fit.

As you loose the belts with bearing holder it's acceptable at least on Stock race.
