I just adjusted the belts on my car after about 4 or 5 runs. I had to do 4 clicks on the rear and 3 on the front to get it back to where it was initially. This is the first time I've adjusted the belts. I'm curious as to whether they will keep stretching or if there is an initial bed in period and then they stretch less. It's just that I only have 2 slots left on the rear and 3 on the front so after another 5 or so runs I'll be looking at replacing my belts. Seems an awfully short life for belts.

Oh, I'm running a 19 turn motor which is probably putting a bit of strain on it compared to a stock motor.

thanks for any info.
As far as I know, the B are no longer available. I wouldn't recommend the B2, they seem to be a bit too hard. As are good for cold weather as Max have mentioned, and the B3 is the choice for warm-hot weather.

My stock and Aramid belts stretched slightly initially, then haven't done much after that.

Ah, well it didn't go so good after I adjusted them. Earlier in the week, the front belt had flipped around but at the time I just flipped it back over and didn't think much of it. I guess what happenend is the belt had worn into the gear on the spur and rubbed through some of the teeth so when I ran it today, ti lasted about a minute, jumped off, pushed the other belt across and then wore through the spur gear cover.

So now I need a new centre gear. I have a one way from a 415 lying around. Would I be able to put that in until I can get a new centre gear?

The Xray diff lube works great! Doesn't fling off and seems to last for many runs.

sounds like they were too loose. I've never had mine jump off or flip over.

Pretty sure you can't use the 415 pulley, but I may be mistaken.

Well, unfortunately it did.
Like I said, the belt flipped over during the week but when I noticed the car was only runnign in rwd it was a bit of a distance away so I just drove it back to me, I imagine that is when the belt damaged the gear enough that it would jump off and onto the other side of the gear.


I've seen a photo of a 415 running the TA05 centre gear (no idea why as it's plastic and the 415 is aluminium) so I might see what I can fandangle up although just looking at the two it looks very different.
