Looks great for LOLA body users! I saw some guy who went to Japan and he brought back some nice hop ups. Carbon fibre disk brakes, carbon fibre brake calipers etc. I think I better make friends with some Japanese!!!

Does anyone know how to tell the Mugen cvd's and the old rd logics cvd's apart?

Also whats with this 16/19 belt conversion I keep hearing about? Is it the side belt? What kind of pullies would I need for this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

all CVD have the same construction and this also applies to mugen CVD.

Thanks for the reply, I bought a used car and it had different rear cvds than front however both of them were the style u showed in the picture so I am trying to figure out which are the mugen ones and which are the rd logics ones. One of them had all black coating and the others had silver coating where the bearings mount.

Any ideas?

Ok thanks, if there is a difference in putting the shorter ones or longer ones up front? Which is better. I think the longer ones would bend easier and bind a little more, am I right?

the cvd with long bone is supposed to be placed at the front. if you go for shorter front track width, you might need the shorter one

newbie question.

i've read somewhere here that the 16/19 belt conversion is supposed to address the issue of tire wear (someone correct me if im wrong though). will this be a major issue as well if i only use rubber tires. where we race, rubbers are often used (for one reason or another) so i'm just wondering if there is any real advantage of doing this 16/19 belt conversion considering i use rubber tires most of the time. appreciate any input/s on this.

Default This conversion

I appologize, I know this whole conversion thing has been beat around this thread probably waaayyy too much but it seems this may be my chance to jump in. I just bought a few of the belts for the conversion and was wondering what else do I need. I think I move my front side pully to the rear side and mount a new 16T in the front side or something like that???? Any input is most appreciated!!

you need tire split of 4mm between front and rear to start with and at the end of the race day you wont be having a bigger front tire diameter. some other advantages is the smaller front tire wall with less diameter that you have to give you more solid front end while cornering. i do believe with the lower front tire size does affect the front roll centre.

the 16/19 pulley conversion is very simple but you need an extra 16T pulley from spare pulley bag.

the original 19T at the side of main shaft (2speed shaft) relocated to the front of the side belt and you put the extra 16T to the rear of the side belt then you are fixed.
