Pointless for me.

The settings go Neutral, Tight, Extra Tight.

When I set it to tight, the belt was way to tight, unless you have a unprepared surface or driving on somthing really bumpy, it's useless.

I can't imagine how tight the tightest setting is.

You want as little friction as possible.

What it comes down to is, if your driving on a surface thats stripping belts, it may come in handy, if you arnt damaging belts, I don't see a reason you would need it.

Very nice tool to measure end-play.

For Bridgeport, the neutral setting is fine, any more and you're just creating friction for the car.

Bridgeport has a pretty smooth surface, its usually the little things that fall off the trees and grass that get your belts, those will get you no matter how tight your belt is.

If you find your self driving on a rough surface where you might need it, it's a different story then but you say you've had no problems.

If that's the case come out this sunday as a big crown may be headed up for some laps. I'll be in the next town over so I'll see if I can get my MRX4 there too.

Default New kid on the block...

Just wanted to post here that a new neighbor is on the stable (here...) is a MRX4-R just to make companion the other Mugens (MTX3/4 & MRX3... who said that 3 is a good number? ).

Along the new guy sports a Ninja R01 engine, just a pair of pics before being installed all the radio gear and linkages (mostly stock, blade rear bar, rubber belts and upper Ti screwset in on order). Tomorrow is the great day with the break-in the beast.

Photo 1

Photo 2

Edit: The engine, for a little less than 500Euros with complete exhaust is a thing to be seriously considered, specially if they hold well against JP's, Sirios and Plus3-21's...
