It's probably cheaper and better to purchase the Ti screws seperately.. that way you have extras when you need them.
I was able to get a pack of ten Ti screws for as little as $3.20 from RainbowTen in Japan.

Low ratio pulley's made the drive train free spin much longer. As for acceleration I felt the 2.125 pulley's have a more punchy feel. My suggestion is small tighter tracks run the 2.125 pulley's and for a larger more open track run the 1.77 pulley's. Top end seems to be a little better with the 1.177, but corner to corner I like the 2.125.
Wow RB, that's exactly the opposite effect that pulfer and I felt the pullies had, We felt like the car had no SNAP with the 2.125, so we went to 1.77 and the same roll out felt like it had a ton more punch off the corner. We also noticed the car seemed to brake harder off throttle. Weird that you would feel the opposite.

I haven't driven mine yet with the new pulleys but that's what everyone else in our club says about the 1.77 seems to have more punch. I guess cuz of the less rotating mass.

They are mainly for better efficiency of the drive train. The new pulleys allow for a freer transmission by not bending the belt at such a sharp angle.

Ok, I've gotten the car fully assembled, and the only problems I had during assembly were screwing the eyelets onto the bottom of the shock shafts. That was one hell of a bare, well actually 4 hell of a bears . But In the end I figured it out and got the last one on rather easily. The other problem I had was I kept putting the wrong screw in some places (so many of those screws look exactly the same but are actually a little different in legnth) , and so I would have to take it out and replace it with the right one, not a real problem, but certainly annoying after the 3rd time .

The front belt is still pretty tight, any ideas on how to loosen it up? I did find that you could loosen the screws for the top plate, tug up on the belt a little and than tighten the screws back down and that would loosen it up some, but I tought that would also tweak the chassis in a bad way? I really like the shock bladders, it was a major pain building shocks for my tc3 without bladders. They make it really easy to get equal rebound action.

If you have an Evo 2 look in your Instruction Manual on page 10 and make sure your adjustable bulkheads are in the correct spot. If not, the plastic ring that goes into the bulkheads that has a notch on it is how you adjust the tension on the belt. There are 5 positions on the bottom of the bulkhead, Xray recommends in the manual to start in position 3 (COUNTING FROM THE FRONT OF THE CAR TO THE REAR). If you need to losen the belt move the notch towards the front of the car, position 2. I bet you do not have that set correctly.

Hope this helps

Jbackslash: Here's the pic you requested. I've included in the pics a normal female Corally plug (so you can see the difference in size) and a male mini-euro plug. You may want to use the mini if you intend to use a fan alongside the motor endbell. It will let you mount a fan closer to the endbell. Otherwise, the normal corally plug will do.

Also, if you can notice from the photo ... the female mini plug have hole on the side so that you can solder your wires perpendicular to the plug.

2? My manual stated 3, why did you use 2? I just finished my kit also and my belt is fine-I see no need for a tensioner.

I have tha raycer porshe.And I noticed that the front belt is much more tighter than any of my other rays.It's a little strange but I think that I will just run it box stock and see how it fares against your fast car.

How do you know? Did you weigh them?

My personal opinion is that the low ratio pullies make no difference at all assuming you go back to the same FDR or rollout. Maybe Ralph can see a difference in lap times, but nobody including myself at our club races are capable of driving the car well enough to see a difference in lap times. Cypress and Rob- I'm curious if you have actually made back to back runs with teh same motors and batteries only changing the pullies to see if there is a change in lap times? I'm betting there isn't, but I have been wrong before...

I'm sorry if I seem like a pessimist, but I come from drag racing and we made one change at a time. If it didn't help, we went right back to what we were using before. When I was running my Missions I never saw one little tiny bit of help from chaging pulleys, putting pretty purple aluminum parts on the car, or upgrading to the new style diffs. Why? Cause the car wasn't any faster with that stuff, with me driving it. It was just eye candy or durablility. I just paid $7.50 for aluminum servo mounts on my T1R. Will it be faster? No- I'm just a sucker. (my alum. servo mounts are irrelevant to LR pulleys- just thought I would share )
