Nope! I use the FiveStars BLUE on front. My current car setup is now using all FiveStars BLUE.

Don't remember who else showed me the car with all the Al pulleys on it. Is it Corse-R? Well, he also claimed that it was still in good shape after many liters of fuel. I'm really in doubt...

Manticore's car main diet is FUEL. And, Belt is considered as an Appetizer. Wonder what it'll be getting for dessert?

man... Nothing is missed from the eyes of RClover...

The camber link was fixed from the tip given by Manticore: using the good old 6mm ball cup, then cut them short, instead.

thanks for noticing that. When'll you'll be running the 24K gold shock shafts?

Well, any alloy pulley will eventually wear down, regardless of brands. It may matter just a bit that which wear faster than the others.

Harden Steel Pulleys, anyone?
