Thanks Kev. I don't know how it survived. Mike nailed me after traction rolling and landing in his way, I also nailed Dan Alvarado after he spun out from trying to get out of Chris' way. The traction rolling messed up one of my rear tires badly. I'm glad I haven't looked the car over yet, scared to find out

Is the belt tensioner available yet?

I heard that MRX4 suffers from front belt failure frequently as well. Since Evolva and MRX4 both have premature front belt failure. I wonder whether it could be a design flaw in both cars instead of belt material problem.

I don't think we are dealing with design flaws - we are pushing, to the limit, all of the elements in the drive train. Have you noticed: the pins on your dog bones need to be replaced more often, the pulleys seem to "creep" around the lay-shaft (even though you know they were tight), your pulleys aren't lasting as long, your two speed cam seems be have a constant flat spot? We are putting down more power than ever in the corners - the cars are flat awesome!

As the cars develop - the need for the "strongest" components will be more critical than ever - if you want to win. We, also, have found the Bando Kevlar based belts are the best - so far.

Yasu has all the parts before any other site on the net even shows them. If you see something you want and can't find it, Yasu probably has it.

Default relube evolva bearings

The evolva bearings are not plastic shielded. Is it still possible to take out the metal shield, and grease the bearing balls with lithinum?
