I used the stock rear tension but loosened the front up by one of the little marks on the bulkheads. The belts seem to loosen up a bit after you run them for a bit.
For droop I started with 6 in the front and 5 in the rear and it seemed pretty good

The stock tension is actually alright because the pulleys are larger now and the belt doesnt get pinched as tight over the pulley. It takes a few runs for the belt to break in but it will be fine once it does.

Wouldn't you need the rear diff pully to build a diff?

LOL
That is great.....
My BD has made its way through the old testament but just started the new...LOL
Great pic though....

Got my Boca Bearings today....Even though I am sick I still went ahead and cleaned them out of the heavy lube and then put in some ACER ceramic bearing oil....well it is just the same as Royal oil but a tad bit thinner. These bearings are very nice...Fit perfect but it seemed I needed to add a couple shims in all the diffs...Oh well probably just wear....But the drive train feels silky smooth now. Ran the new bearings in for about 20min @ 2.5V with a stock motor... The car doesn't make a peep of a noise now...
Will run some lap times to see if they really make any difference...
If I ever get over this silly cold....Came out of no where...

Thats Sleightys car, we had left all the wires long because we were using batterys that had differently positioned connectors etc, and there was a possibility that things may have had to be swopped over from different cars so we figured just leave them long

The only reason the reciver wires are stuck up like that is becuase they were taped, it was very wet
