Default belt tension.

..Here's a vague question. How tight are the front and rear belts supposed to be? I just finished building the car. Are the belts supposed to be somewhat tight? I know the bulkheads have adjustment left, but how tight do you go?

Also, what is everyone using for the adjustable rear swaybar? I need to get one, and I don't think Empire's is out yet.

Thanks,
Steve

Steve,

The bulk heads are similar - you don't have to change. It is cool to use the "new" version - it allows you to run the rotating mass lower in the chassis. The "cam" can be positioned to lower the one-way assembly - pretty cool.

I don't like the belts to feel tight. They rob power. We run the belts loose - that is to say the rear will "deflect" 3/16".

Our rear sway bar assembly will be out in three weeks.

The first sets will be ready 3/14. Thanks for the interest. The one in this picture is a prototype - final color will be the same as the pictured radio tray mount. The production units will not have the "drop-down" post.

In reference to our front sway bar brackets: We currently have, in stock, the '03 sway bar mounts. The '05 versions are almost complete. To answer your question; no, they're not universal. 03's can't use 05 and 05's must use the 05 version.

Hi Steve,

We are using the '05 style bracket. It has the suspension pin set further out board. We also run it with no "spacers" - or as low as possible. Come over and check Scott's car out. Hope I've made sense.

Rich
