there is a rear belt tensioner available, that would sort the 18t gear

What about the 20T when the belt is going to be tighter?

I'm just speculating because I haven't seen the gears yet but I believe they have probably tried to keep the actual diameters very close and are using a wierd tooth profile to get the tooth spread to what is needed. we have all seen that with pinion gears at times. same type of deal I figure.

look at the picture of the two gears on TM's site (the silver side ones. Note the spacing between the teeth. the 18 is wider and the 20 is narrower. Like I said I think the od is is constant.

won't work with belt and pulley. with pinion and spur is ok because the number of teeth in contact between the pinion and spur is 2 at most at any time, the pinion's and the spur's pitch can be off a little. with a belt on a pulley, approx. 40% of the teeth is in contact at any time, the pitch on the belt must match the pitch on the pulley. can't maintain same pitch without changing the diameter of the pulley.

Here in Hawaii we usually get track temps averaging around 135F throughout the year. Tires used are usually Sorex 36R and 40R, Yokomo 138GF and 138GH, and recently the Take-Off CS-32 and CS-37.

As far as inserts go, Sorex thin firms, reg soft and HPI soft and med are regularly used.
Track temp today was up to 40 degrees at about midday

I had the same problem until I switched to the new clutch and spring. No problems after that.

you need the k1410 clutch spring, weights, and shoe upgrade. the weights have brass inserts in them for more force.

I'm using stock clutch shoe and fly shoe. But I use new red spring. It works fine to me. I got 5th in A main in our National yesterday. (more than 50 entries)
