Manticore that is interesting. I have been running the Kawhara rotors and pulleys on both my V-One-R and MTX-2 for 8-10 months with no problems what so ever. Regarding your friend wearing out alloy pulleys after a couple of leters of fuel I find that extremely hard to believe unless his belts are made of 60 grit sand paper, mine still look brand new.
by the way, how often you run your V1R/MTX2 in this 10 months?

Fishcake: At one of the clubs a i race here in Brisbane, Australia you have to run a .12 pullstart motor (.8hp max) which rules out the use of a non-pullstart....

The reason they have made everyone use a pullstart is to make sure that all the cars in this particular class are all running similar cars. Basically the only motors you can use is the Os Cv-x or a Force 12. They do have other classes including a Pro Touring Class (Run to IFMARS rules for Pro Touring 1/10th 200mm) that i could also run, but the gas tourers (pullstart) class have up to 30 entries a night and everyone is within a second of each other so the racing is really close.

Now replaced it with the stock old and trusty disc on it. The stock old has been with my MTX2 for one years and it is in great shape.

I will post the picture of the worn out kawahara disc later on.

I need to check if my friend put sand paper as drive belt or not !
Yes the adapter holes do wear on the kawa discs....the pullies also......but I'm not the one Manticores is talking about!!!!

I was convinced, but was actually laughing at the way you expressed it.. I do not use brakes too, only in conditions when I really need to, for eg: overtaking cars( seldom, in fact, NO CHANCE!), avoid a collision with the other cars..
