Hi professor, re the belt guide. If you mean the tensioner, in my Ghost manual it states in Step11 that it is not included. Even in my D05 manual it only takes 1/2 a page, Step 10.

Yes the guide/tensioner is the part I am speaking of. I guess I didnt read the part about not being included. Thanks for the info. Still think its odd to have steps for a not included part.

I am very interested in how well the car performs and how durable it is. I am considering a new VTA and the Ghost with a price tag of $300 looks interesting.

Took the Ghost out last night for the first time and WOW. Car ran great for for a box pretty much box set-up. Only needed a couple small adjustments to get it in the zone. Still trying to find the sweetspot. Once the tires get broken in I'll really be able to get it dailed in. Overall I am very happy with the kit. I may get the shock towers and shock shafts to convert my 05.

Is that size for the bearings that go inside bellcranks over the post? What size wmthe flanged bearing thst sits inside the rack be?

Thanks for the help guys.

Car is actually really good, just getting frustrated with some traction rolling issues. It has soooooooo much steering its ridiculous. Some guys at the track are pretty impressed with it, and they really like all the cool white parts. I just might get some more, and the shock towers off of the 06 and make myself a carbon fiber Ghost out of my D05.
