Not quite 300, maybe including postage. Still this is retail pric, not street price you'd expect it to be a little less street price. I still think Much More products are way overpriced and contribute a lot to the cost of TC racing, never seen so much useless bling than since they're here, but that's just my opinion.

Yeah, I would consider using one from another car first, machining you own could be expensive.
I'm not sure on the measurements, but one from a Cyclone might work. Best bet would be to measure one from a friend, and see if the distance between the outdrives is wide enough. If i'm correct, I think the pulley size is the same too.

Then again, if you make your own, you could always produce a batch and sell them to other drifters to help recoup some of the cost...

Ed, pulleys on the Cyclone are 39 teeth. It's only on the layshaft that they're the same.

HELP!!!!

In the process of doing some maintenance on the car I have stripped the heads on 3 of the 4 rear suspension blocks screws

Doesn't help that my 2mm driver is a piece of crap

How can I get them out? If I'd only stripped 1 on each block then I could have dis-assembled the car and rotated the blocks to loosen them, unfortunately one block has both screws stripped.

I tried to dremel a slot in the head - not enough room without damaging the chassis.

Any other ideas?

JB weld some allen keys to the stripped screws then twist them out when the JB weld hardens.

I've had the same problem before. I used a 2mm metal drill and slowly drilled the screw's head off. You'll find that it's binding to the carbon fibre rather than the aluminium. Once the head is drilled off, it comes out very easily.

if you have a dremel or access to one, use a cutting disk and make a slot onthe screw head. then use a flat blade screw driver and remove in the normal way. This way is very quick but be careful not to catch your chassis with the disk.

Thanks for the answers guys.

I can't really do the drill idea, can't find the right drill bit

Might try the JB Weld, all I gotta do is find where I can buy it from in Brisbane.

You can do with a 2,5 or 3mm drill too, it don't matter since you're only drilling the screw's head...

Hey Jason,

You won't find JB weld here in Brisbane (it's called araldite or 2 part epoxy/resin glue). What a way to wreck the bling!!! Hope you get it out without damage!!! And here I was concerned about you crashing.......sounds like the first 'breakage" or mass piece of destruction might come from your very own hands!!! J/K

Hope you get it fixed mate.

Or you could cut a slot into the screw head the un screw it with a flat head screw driver, but you might also put a slot in the chassis at the same time

the best way is to cut a slot in it and move it side so side if the other screw is out as you try to back it out the other way is I have a small drill that has hammer action set it to 1 and work your way up on the action 1- 10 as U do it go both ways in and out it works every time..
