Thanks!
I inspect all my pulleys when I change my belts... If the pulleys are worn and damaged by a pebble or something, I'll change them... One thing I've found is that I've gotten longer belt life and more stable setup using the original RRR belts and not the SP belts... The SP belts I've found have a few issues...

Car, we'll keep that in mind. With that said, I was adviced by our local boy who was Nat champ in outlaw sedans 2 years back. In order to go fast and make run time, they go out at like 270, come in at 302. Couple of times I would come in at like 270, which isn't that bad at all, still good smoke. If I come in @ 240,I wasn't going to make 5 mins at all.

On another note guys, when the EVO top plate comes out, I'm switching over...

To have the throttle servo laid down is cool and all. But after seeing my teammate had to change throttle servo because a gear went out... that took ages to do! It wouldn't be so bad if you can access the screws from the outside, but when they are come out from the inside, it's PITA!

On the way home he asked me, "When are the EVO parts going to come out?"

In case you guys didn't notice, Josh Cyrul is testing the Team Orion WASP REV with his RRR. It also looks like he's got a part for the Ultimate X.

Check out the Team Orion CRF Wasp Rev X-Dyno results thread in the Exclusive Nitro Engine Zone...
