Thanks
the 415 is good for being loose off power just add a bit of creep/pos trim and see how that works

Ran my refine 2 for the first time at my local club (very very tight low grip carpet with no additive and rubber tyres) and it was dialed. Roll bars were off, diff in the front and centre direct pulley with .5mm shims under every block (i added another .5mm shim under the rear front block) with a Ride Honda Accord (A type with Flap RW wing). I could easily keep up with the 19T cars (i was running a 27T on about 7.8) which were doing about 9-10 second laps

Alrigh-I solved my spinning out problem. It was a poorly glued tire!!

But unless I drive my 415ms like Miss Daisy-I over heat the rears in two hard driven laps and I am done.

Do rears over heat more from chassis set-up or insert? For sure my cars got mad steering so I really dont need to drive it that hard-its just in my foam tire nature.

If your using tyre warmers i would suggest not using them or turning them down. It could be that you have to much steering which is causing the rear tyres to slide which would heat them up to quickly (this is a possibility), or your tyres are of the wrong compound, for eg if your using CS-22s try CS-27s.

Thanks Charles. No tire warmers, but YES-my rears do slide and my cars very loose if over driven. Just looking for a set-up thats got steering, but isnt as loose. I might just be okay with going from saucing 1/2 front to 1/8" front. TIres are Tamiya type A with med firm thin inserts from Yokomo (TCS race!!). he track is med t hig bite with a black grooev as well.

I'm having problems with the Low Friction White belts - I keep loosing teeth from them. I must have used 9 or so in a year. I've tried running them loose, normal and tight with no difference. I only run 19t on carpet, but I have a very harsh throttle style.

Has anyone found a decent alternative to the Tamiya item?

Cheers.

What condition is your center pully in? I have only had this problem once and that was when the center pully had started to wear and the teeth had become sharp on it. I replaced the belt and the pully and that was the problem solved.
