Yes, 2 pins.

...might i suggest re-shimming the center pulley, so as to take out the side to side play... also a larger outer diameter washer would be good to hold down the 2nd pin in place

I'm here, I guess it's the start of monsoon season here so it's been raining pretty much every day. It's hard enough planning a racing trip up to Seoul without the weather, now it's about impossible.

Matt, just curious... did you ever shave the lower left steering arms on your BD? It slightly eats up the belt... or the belt actually eats up the aluminum steering arms. Just wondering if anybody out there shaved theirs to further free up the drivetrain (front belt).

hi ian, i shaved my left lower steering post and my belt now clears any portion of the steering post...

although, i think that im the only one that actually shaved some material from my BD, the others didn't seem to have any problem with their post... although you could see that someof the blue anodizing has somewhat faded where it contacts the belt.

Yeah, I might do the same... not that it really affects the car at all, but it's better to be safe than never. Who knows, the belt/aluminum contact might cause glitches... but never really had a problem so far.

The anodization is slightly worn off of the edge of my left steering post but I'm not worried about it. There's no way this is going to affect the efficiency of the car, at least by the slight amount mine is touching.
