The tensioner is that far back for a reason, it is to clear the manifold. With the tensioner toward the middle, you might not get the belt to clear with the lowest position. We have to account for the slack it develops during accleration and braking and still clear the manifold. Those rubber belts are not going to like the heat from the manifold.

That's why Kawahara is coming out with a re-designed reverse belt tensioner:

All I can say is: WOW

One question tho, have you weighted the car yet? Does it feel the same or heavier?

Nope, I haven't weighed it yet. It feels about the same.

I am going to try running it with the tensioner reversed. It is closer to the manifold, but I will still test it that way at our next race.

The 25t pulley is aimed at people that run rubber tires. So has anybody run the car with the 25t pulley on rubber tires? I don't know if I will ever run nitro on rubbers, but it might be interesting.

I have a comment I just put on the radio plate mount. The two rear battery holder screws go into locknuts that are held on this part. If you need to change batteries in a hurry, there is nothing to hold the locknuts in place. If that part of the radio plate was thicker and just threaded, that wouldn't be an issue. Just think if you are running a bigger race and have to change your battery pack because you bump up and only have 5 mins to get ready for the next heat.

Hm....that sure is a draw back for me, cuz the one made by Shooter has every hole threaded:


Thanks Scott for pointing it out.
