Yeah I did at paved nats. It was Difuser's car. It handled great, just had duds for handout motors.

well my stabilizer is on the way.. Will tell you if the stabilizer solve my problems..

TRF415. I call it the bridge because it has the cut out for the belt to ride under.

Randy Korey did run that there at Nats it works good but not as well as it did with the E3. It will aid turn-in. To aid turn-in I have been running around 2mm under the front link. A bridge, play with the front block A-D and .5mm kickup. I also have been running thinner and thinner oils during the summer I was 40-50 with the 3 hole piston.

To clarify the A-D helps the mid corner not neccessarily the turn-in

really? I haven't fliped a belt since putting one on the car. I was running two notches on cam to tighten the belt, after it flipping on me at one notch. With stabilizer, went back to one notch and and it hasn't fliped. BTW, this is with white belts.

Default Belt Flip

The only time I've flipped a belt is after a crash. Its happened because my battery shifted due to old tape in the car and the battery seems to be the guilty party. Maybe some people's belts have more of a twist to them than others?

Default Belt Tightening, Notches?

Razzo and others,

When you say 2 notches, does that mean rotate the plastic pieces 2 notches forward(front long belt) from the small white mark on the bulkheads?

Thanks,

Blake

Blakesrc - yeah. I run just one notch tighter than the center setting (lined up with white line) so its one notch past the white line. It depends on your belt.

The funny thing is the time that my belt flipped, the entire belt was inverted so it was running on the flat side. And when it flipped, my car was still going around the track pretty good. That 415 want to just keep ripping it up.

Thx, my 415 is due for X-Mas, so maybe i'll just ty it box stock at first, and then i'll see where i want to go, if i want more mid corner steering will follow your tip.

Hmm....Belts probably streched. I'm running atleast 1 or 2 notches tight up front. Probably cause I got it used (like everything else expensive) The front D-block looked like it had been through a few stages of hell too...

I got a spare front white belt I'll replace it with...hopefully it lasts
