I`m thinking that same, to change them "regulary" ones

But i bought my RDX couple weeks ago.. and not driven it at all yet

Hey. Is it good starting point to use Simo`s last year Kissimmee set-up for asphalt, because our rules allow only Take-off cs27 tires.?

T1FK05 thrusts are blowing out....... Only use ones that have been in stock for a while at your shop. Otherwise you'll waste money.

1.How important is the Belt tensioner on the RDX, is there anyway to tighten or loosen the belts without using belt tensioner.
I know you can slide the spur gear up and down, is that how you loosen the belts.

2.When I slide the gear higher the front belt got tighter, when I slide the gear lower the rear belt got tighter. what is the intention on the spur sliding up and down.

3. I would rather run without the belt tensioner is this poosible.

Just make sure they have the brass cages and not the silver ones.

You should put this on a setup sheet on the website. That would be a big help!

I run the layshaft always in the up position. That is the tightest on the front belt. I have never used the tensioner and still have my original belts from 6 months ago.

I haven't had a problem with the rear belt tension in this position either, and all I pretty much run is 7 turns.

If you run modified, you're best off running the layshaft in the high position as it tightens up the front belt, like Jeff said. If you run stock, run the layshaft right in the middle. It makes both belts as loose as possible, and makes for the most free drivetrain.
