A slightly shorter and slightly more closed gearing (good for mid to high and strong 2nd gear shift) could be 21/59 with 25/52 and let your engine whine at the top end.
By the way, for those who use the 0.8 gearing system, when I was in Japan, I remember seeing the harden steel pinion on this type of system, make sure you seek them for your car. I don't remember who makes it.

I surely will look for ones for my Evolution.

Weight difference is not much. However, if you can afford buying new ones all the time, stick with Al. A lot easier to find and a bit cheaper.

alvinm: the belt for the 16 tooth rear pulley/19 tooth front

hardwarehobbies.com carries them...the last time I checked
(5 days ago), they had 8 in stock. Pick up an extra set of
the Mugen plastic pulleys (TO221) and you are all set...if you
want to run 0% overdrive, the front needs to be 3.72 mm
smaller...most of the guys on this forum topic seem to like
a 3.00 mm spread which is about a 1.3% overdrive which
still gives the steering but helps to tuck the rear end in
when you get on the power coming out of corners.

i tried both kawahara 363mm belt and the one corse-r sent me

the kawahara one is softer (less friction???) and the one corse-r supplied is beefed.

the kawahara one just wont last and the belt strip after a gallow or so.

I have been running corse-r 363mm belt for a few gallow and it is still in good shape.

I still have one kawahara belt left. who wants it?

Default Kawahara Rear Sway Bar

I already got the Sato rear brake brace. Will the Kawahara
rear sway bar fit or do I need to get the Kawahara rear brake brace as well?

Thanks.

To everyone who's considering the belt conversion, I recommend that you stick with Corse's belts.

They are affordable and they are made by Pirelli!!

How do they say: Power is nothing w/o control...

Nope, with the 16/19 conversion you will not lose steering, at least you will gain a little of, because of the small launch of the chassis. I tried it myself before all and liked the way was.

Stefan and Manti, thanks for the compliments.

hey dave,

can you peek or ask those drivers what they use? I'm sure they'll be more than happy to tell you.
