Default Yokomo YR4 M2 Type J Help!

Hi,
I have a Yokomo YR4 M2 Type J that I plan on running stick packs in which I've heard is fine. The problem is that I've moved the centre pulley and spur up to the top mounting so the stick pack fits under the belf but the centre belt is now really tight (it doesn't touch the battery) and I'm scared of running it in case I damage anything. Can anyone help me at all I really can't find any other info on the car.
Thanks in advance,
Lee.

Ova you are right, Chris didn't drive the car, I am not real sure Barry drove it either . I had one, loved the look (not sure if it was a J type) What I was saying was that Chris had the connections at Yokomo (Masami for one) to find out about the car.

Default Yokomo YR4 M2 Type J Help!

Managed to find my instructions. Apparently the car did come with two belts originally but guess what I only have the short one. Anyway does anyone know of another car that uses a 477 tooth drive belt (or thereabouts) because I'm struggling to find one in the UK (Yokomo USA only ship to the US with there spares and aren't replying to my emails).
Thanks again,
Lee

Like I said Parksie try Chris Tosolini's thread he may be able to steer you in the right direction.

Default yo yo yo

there are a ton of places that will sell you belts for that car.

that belt is not 477 teeth! it is likely 477mm long with a 3mm pitch length. 477/3= 159t.

try these links. the only problem is that most of these guys have a $25 minimum. but the belts are like 3 or 4 dollars. no lie.

http://www.york-ind.com (awesome customer service)

http://www.fennerprecision.com (great technical site)

http://www.beltcorp.com

some of these guys will even cut them to custom widths for ya.

give it a shot.
