I have had no problems with the aluminum pulley that is on the 2 speed shaft.
Make sure the pulley is seated properly, directly over the flatspot on the shaft. Use Loctite on the set screw before screwing it in.

Also make sure you have the aluminum pulley aligned evenly with the 51 tooth solid axle with the rear belt on. If you do not have these properly aligned you will have a much higher chance of destroying the rear belt.

Hope this helps.

After installing the new lead you have to let it seat at least overnight, then it should be fine

No belts getting eaten but I have had the grub slip at least half a dozen times. I finally got so fed up I drilled and tapped another screw hole on the opposite side of the pulley and put in a second screw. Problem solved.

The first ones where to narrow, I don't know if that is fixed. Do they still offer this product? I any case, we don't use it.

Alu srewset, lipo, LGC, hollow middleshaft, light lever's, QC wheel axles or CV, light weight body ... our car can be less than 2500 grams

Roll more light? This is a matter of perfect material matching and apply ceramic bearings. The mechanical roll will come after some driving

Okey, i will get alu screws and titan screws... maybe the lgc, the light steel axle...

As far as i know the pro belts are doing this very good.. the car rolls reaaally smooth and light

i think i would get some titanium parts..

Be aware that titanium parts and steel do not mix! (bearings on a axle)
We tested the pro belts, the rear is to long... We only apply them as sidebelt.

Aluminum screw set is by far the best bang for the buck when it comes to lightening the car. Lipo is nice, along with Titanium Pillow Balls.

You must be thinking of hydrogen. Helium is not explosive.

Aluminum brake pulley is great. I wouldn't run without it! Had problem with stock set-up...set screw backing out & getting jammed between adapter & plastic pulley. What a pain! Set screw is fully visible for inspection on alum unit.
