Actually the instructions regarding the eccentrics are backwards, you need to put them the other way around, i think it is around the third from the other side.

And I didn't notice a bit of difference at all in the tension of the belt. Its so bad I can roll the front belt off the diff pulley if you coax it a little. Is this something I should worry about? My last belt touring car was a hpi mini that had a belt tensioner. And input would help, the belt does seem to tighten some on power so I guess I'll see what happens at the track?? But so far I think this kit is really free, and is more free than my associated that is being replaced by this kit.
hi pal,
i think you may have put the eccentric hubs in the wrong locations. i've had to put mine in the 4 oclock position(initial instructed setting was to put in 6 oclock). give it a try, it should be ok.

Jesse, there correct. I spent over 2hrs. assm. and dis-assm. the frontend until I found out the instructions were backwards. I've since made a tensioner out of a servo horn with a couple of bearings. Now I don't have to rip the front apart again just to change the tension. I run it loose in stock and semi-tight in mod. I ran my EVO2 outside with rubber tires had an 8x1 in it and I walked every nitro car at the track on the straightaway!!! I love the car.

Has anyone tried to convert the old Serpent shocks to the new Evo 2 shocks with the alloy shock bodies??

I tried tonite and found the plastic cap holding the O-ring in place does not fit the new Evo 2 shock bodies!!! There is a very slight difference.........

The servo saver solution is signifcantly cheaper and does exactly the same job........the front belt tensioner appears to be one of thought "after thought" mods that Xray came out with.....does not look too pretty.....well...as bad (or good) as a servo horn mod!!!

Someone on another discussion board found out the same thing you did about the shock bodies.

The wheelbase clips are a pain to file down....but you will be thankful for it in the long run because if you do it right you can achieve zero play AND also a free moving A-arms. With most cars you get to choose one or the other....but rarely both!!

I agree with dtm on the clips. Worth the effort. I have done this twice as I have c-hub also.

If you end up with a bit of play, just stick a teflon shim in till your new clips arrive.

I am having to order a new top deck, there was a section of the track that had changed from others hitting the turn......and I let off the throttle to adjust and the guy behind me pushed me into the turn. I snapped only one side of the top deck at the base of where it splits so I was able to use a home remedy and glue to continue with my last qual and main.

That added flex seemed to agree with the car, so I will try the original flexible top deck this weekend and see how it runs.
