I've got a stripped center section mount and need to get a replacement.

This, to me, is where the aftermarket aluminum stuff goes on.

I would suggest getting the shooter or SATO one, they are cheap and good.

Sato parts are made by Kawahara, Shooter parts are heavy as hell.

It is an optional belt made by a Japanese option house called "kawahara".

too bad you can't use belts, you run a MT12!

I have talked to a number people in Hk who are quite familiar with the production of aftermarket option parts, and almost all of them say that big chances Kawahara and perhaps maybe square is made in the same factory as 3Racing.

And also by looking at the machining techniques (with the use of a particular set of tooling), it is easy to tell 3Racing OEM stuff I've been told, and that they have a specific way of manufactuer. Besides, CNC machines are expensive, and not every company (esp small ones) can afford them

To me, it does not matter that much, as long as the quality control is good, its all good.
