Yes, i am talking about the one packed separately with a piece of red paper. it is very loose when i put it on(with the tensioner all the way down).
So, it comes with 1 side belt, right?

So, may i know how many belt does it ship with? 1 or 2? Mine is only the one with the red paper.

the answer from mugen japan is, d nont use the 23 pulley.
if you use the 24 the different from front to rear is 2,485 mm to get 1:1,
when you take the 23 it is 5,05 mm.
we have tested it with 2,5 mm and the 24 pulley and the car feels great

Either that or what if you bought two kits and used the parts for the second rear diff an used the front diff case? Would that work???

so to get the rollout correct, a 2.5mm split....hmm. Progressive. a better calculation would be: RearTireDim X .9617 = FTD.
or FrontTireDim x 1.0397= RTD.
This would calculate for different tire diameter, correct?

Yes, but then you blow a whole kit to get one more front diff! It would be cheaper to buy the diff gears/outdrive/pins. They are the same as MTX3.

not the diff case, "4" and "3" r different
