The new, shorter side belt should be available within the next weeks,
but for sure before the season in most of the countries will start.
The new chassis will not be a part of the 2010 kit, its not a need to have part, you can see it like a setup option part.

Thanks for the Information,

Just to make sure that I'm going to buy a 2010 kit. Could you give me the ref number?
Does the car come with the upright?

Hey,
well the 2010 kit will have the same item number like the "old" one.
You will have to ask your dealer if he already have the new batch.
The new kits are shipped since last week.
You also should check if the distributor already have new ones.
Just ask them.
What do you mean with the uprights ???

Alex

I mean the front and rear Exentric upright.

Thanks again I'll check with my dealers about the car. I hope they'll have it.

OK,
this uprights are in the kit for a long time now. You only need to buy the aluminium excentric parts and the ballbearings.

Thank you.
Mugen clutch and Velox are very similar. You should have no problems, however you can go to CEFX.com and download Josh's set-ups for the Shepherd and he has good settings for the clutch in there.
Hope this helps!

Default Rear (low-friction) belt tension

Hi everyone,

Could I have some opinions on rear belt tension? I normally run the optional/low-friction belts in the tightest ("C") setting, but do many people run the belts in the normal, or even loosest settings? How is the life of the belt at these settings?

- As much as I'd like to reduce the belt tension a bit, I'm afraid of stripping the belt during a race.

Thanks,

Kronos.

Kronos, we always run the LF belts during competition, normal belts during training. We place the belt tentioner on normal, not on tight. The belt wear depends a lot on the track (dirt and surface). You could also grind the top of a normal belt to extend its life a bit and have an almost similar LF-effect.

I ran my belts ont the car the whole time at the winternats. Practice 6 quals and engine break in. I didn't have to change them for the main but did anyway. Belts seem to last a long time if you ask me. They where the soft belts so...
