Butcher:

There's going to be a ton of us: me, Brad Toffelmire, Tennesee Brown, Tracy Grieger, Bob Baxter and the illustrious Dennis Ritchey. I'm sure we can find a corner somewhere. Plus, most of the other Mugen team guys will be there as well. If you haven't been to Speedline before, it's an absolute blast. It was my first big race outside California. Make sure you bring goggles.

Most of us will be there Thursday.

funny thing Chris is I flew out west in early november and went to crystal park on a sunday. I walked the pits and bs'd with a few guys I knew but know one else recognized me even though some of them had my engines in their cars. It was actually kinda cool flying under the radar for a change. The funniest thing was during one of brads qualifiers the announcer accused him of having a cheater motor. I actually started laughing and had to grab hold of the drivers stand to keep from falling down.

Number of teeths on belts.

Anyone knows the number of teeths of the front and middle belts? found a place where can do kevlar belts at a really cheap price: 12 Euro for the three belts of the car.

Mine problem: Blowed another front belt (aaargh! is the second and I don't bang the boards ) and plan to order some sets of these belts but destroyed part of the front belt and need the exact number of those. Anyone?

Stock ones that came from the car. Belts start scoring on the external side, shows the lining and on this moment, belt is dead... you'll never know when break, but you get for sure a thing: those belt rip and break.

Got another set of new pulleys thinking that any can be damaged with a rock or something, but examined it and are on perfect shape.

Corse-R: Check the mid bearing block(the slot right under the belt), your belt maybe rubbing against it.
