That's the problem. It's near impossible to get XXX-4 belts. I've tried to get them made and it's tough... very tough. The size isn't common enough to justify the 5k in tooling so I hear.

Piece of cake if I can have a sample to work from, either stock one or carbon one.

How many teeth less are your belts compared to stock if I may ask?

With the aftermarket belts available to us now, xxx-4 belts are of little relevance IMO... All I care about is having an adapter that lets me run Josh's belt Even if I had a XXX4 belt, eventually it will be useless after enough use. Keep it simple I say.

Will be picking up a Fathead adapter as soon as it is available!

I think replicating the MF roll-center (hinge pin) mounts would be great. Some DJC's would be really cool.... though I'm guessing not the cheapest thing to produce in small batches.

Arm mounts shouldn't be a problem, but not really in a position to do driveshafts.

Anyone have pics of MF mounts next to standard ones?

I was google-searching, found a batch of MF parts that were sold together once.

http://www.rctech.net/forum/attachme...g-dscf0016.jpg

The rear blocks are shown at the bottom of the pic. Basically they were two-piece and you could alter the height of the blocks (depending if you ran them as one piece or two piece / stacked). I have some I could send if needed....
