agree , new bumper, something like the wide lower one for the 720.

with the 2 speed shaft, id like to see the side pulley adjustable like the 720, to be able to change how the pinions to spurs line up. if you can move the whole shaft inwards, or outwards a couple of mm, then its easier to be able to setup the alignment alot easier. i think the only 2 things needed.

Glad to see that I'm not the only one. Fixed mine with an XRay bumper mod some time ago. Maybe I'll try a 720 bumper next time.

What I would really like to see is some sort of rear belt tensioner. Despite having the rear chassis stiffener, it still didn't take up any slack in the rear belt.

+1

Also I'd like a slimmer steering bellcrank to give the front belt better clearance.

Roger, the diff eccenters are there to act like a tesioner, just set the eccenters to full tight, although you dont want the belts too tight, they wear out faster and create too much drag on the drivetrain if its too tight.

Steve, I know about the eccenters and even at its limit with a new "wide" belt, its still too loose.

Besides, how would you know anything about the actual car because you hardly ever run yours.

Are the rear belts jumping teeth? Mine are loose but they don't skip.

I have one of the earlier cars and my rear belt is only decently tight when maxed out. Dosent skip teeth even if i have it looser. I noticed some guys showing up with a Newer kit and the belts on the rear are tighter than mine. Maybe the chassis is bent? Or did they move the mounting holes by some small amount. No idea. LoL
