I like GxM, it is the best optional product available in the market. While I travel around the world, I always bring some GxM stuff as souvenir to my friends. Whenever I am back to my home town - HK, I will sure visit their shop in MongKok and empty out 1 or 2 of the show-window.

I have done that for so many years, and now, most of my cars are blue in color. It make me feel so good. Even the friends in my local track are always "looking" at my cars and amazing how nice it is.

I do believe GxM product. No doubt, sure win.

PS : Personally, I am not a racer, but the blue stuff makes me feel like an A-main driver.

how do you rate this pulley as "new" or "badly worn" after 3 week end?

Ugh! that's why ever I said the best pulleys were the plastic ones rather than the cheesy and ricer aluminium ones. Ever preferred the ugly plastic ones besides the cheesy and good looking aluminium.

that's right, but i think the plastic on flows with the car's look, not ugly at all

I will take pictures of the pulleys I ran since I got my car ad post them tonight.

You might wanna reconsider your belt tension or something, but mine look like new against yours.

I'd just like the oppertunity to try the GPM knuckles....Hey Stef, now that you see how long they last, do you have a set to sell me?

It was on Chay's car that the entire right side got taken off of, he was "helped" into the boards at Ft Myers.

19 days and a wake-up till WinterNats!!
