I thought the smaller black belt went on the right side of the car...

Cheers mate. Time to burn some carpet

chattering usually happens when you have to heavy of a spring rate and too lite of a shock oil.

Does the front end roll too much (as in plowing/nose diving) in the front going thru the corner? That can cause that!

The servo saver is bolted to an aluminium standoff, on the follower side the standoff is one piece with a small button head cap screw to hold it in place. This assembly is far more rigid than the standard version.

Yes the belts have been reversed and the motor mount is closer to the centerline of the chassis.

Whats the reasoning behind moving the belts then. I noticed u havent got any tensioners on... dont they catch on the decks ?

The belts were switched to get the motor mount close to the centerline. The tensioners will go on when the belt stretches out a bit more. Since this chassis is ultra stiff the belt is just right as it is.

Great results and congrats to Mo, BigDog, Stlnlst, and, of course to Cornerspeed. Wishing I could have been there, but work and hunnydo's have been tough lately (still paying back for the Nats and the Reedy Race). The tab there should be taken care of and I plan on preping for the upcoming Carpet Regionals by running this Sat. The Cop also said that Soccer season will be ending soon and he'll be back out too. Hope to see you this weekend...

man, I am in need of a racing fix!

Quite a few interesting changes there. I like the bridged top deck ends, and the blue belt guides. My only question, why dont you have battery slots to lower the batteries?

When will the kit be available and how much will it be?

Nice chassis design.
Still not sold on the Belt switching and the motor placement but nice.
