Be aware that the stock side belt for the G4 won't fit the overdrive pulley system of the RR, but K-Factory do make one that will fit.
The part number for the overdrive belt is K 1404, if I recall.

I had a bad experience with those belt guys.. Mine not last long - it striped/worned the belt gear pitch within 4 Heat!. Maybe i had bad component. Just sharing.

Yes, same here. Our side belt only lasted one meeting also before I noticed a couple of missing teeth and a couple more ready to let go.
Also, I wasn't able to notice any better free roll compared to the SP belts, and they last for ages.

Thanks for your much appreciated help
I improved on my lap times/heats and momentum alot at yesterdays club meet. which = more consistancy and control

Taylor, esham: Thanks for the word on those G4 belts. I was going to try them out if my SP's start tearing on me ... but they haven't.

Bmain: Listen to these guys, hope you didn't get the G4 belts yet. You should find them at Tower.

The car rides good as hell but the back it has no downforce because of no 4th hole so I can't go fast because it spins out.

Yes, everybody told me to get another body, but it is easier said than done, they work and I don't. And it's not because i'm not looking for work, I do look for work, it's just nobody is hiring me. So i'm really on a tight budget.
We've been known to staple a strip of lexan across the rear window to allow for different body posts on a shell that was just too good to throw away.

And, yeah, save your money on the Kawahara flywheel. Your lap times will be much better served with the Evo conversion even if you have to wait a while to get it.

There is no way i can afford the evo conversion, i spent my last dollar on a new radio, having a good radio is more important than upgrading and already good car

also I did something similar to the back window but it doesn't help much.

Bmain, what TR means with the overdrive system is the different side pulley. with the VoneR it had a 1:1 drive ratio with a 27t side pulley. The RR onwards has a 25t side pulley which changes the drive ratio. As a result of a smaller pulley the belt legnth changed by a few mm. Hope this helps.

Default Kawahara Micro Clutch

Hey guys, I'm using the Kawahara Micro Centax Clutch and I was wondering if any of you know where to get a spare clutch shoe for it. Or if there's another brand that would fit.

I has a 3D clutch and used shoes from my other Reflex's clutch. So if you know of any other micro clutches, I'd appriciate it if you pointed me in whatever direction.

Default Carbon Composites for RR-Evo

Has anyone tried the front or rear bulk heads? Are these parts lighter than stock?
