yes the belt can get up against the side of the battery pack just slightly but we have not seen any issue with the belt wearing or the belt wearing on the battery pack. the belt tends to run to the outside of the pulley and so far we have had no issues of any kind nor have I had anyone tell me or show me a belt wear or pack wear problem. If it becomes an issue for you let us know.

One thing you need to do is push inward on the battery then tighten the screws to the top deck so it is sitting inboard. Once the mount takes a set it will stay that way.

Belt does run very close and sometimes touches, same with the front belt on the upper chassis frame, but this is only light touching.
The RRR I had the side belt was always rubbing on the exhaust manifold, but even that did no damage to the belt (put a hole in the manifold though after 5 meetings).

I assure you will have no belt issues. The chassis on the side has not changed in its outside profile and the belt location has not either. In 5 years it has never been an issue with the chassis wearing on the side belt. However you will se a small line that develops in the center of the belt. (relax its not the belt) Its caused by rubber from the tires being squeezed through the space between the two belt tensioner bearings. It creates a line of rubber on the belt. If you wipe it down with some alcohol you will see it comes right off. LOL

For the lastest setup which is with a one way and a solid axle, just a change of springs it seems was the difference. I have this on my website... www.racedayhobbies.com and click on the setup page.

Hope this helps you.

Same shocks

That depends on who you ask

You will need to check with the AUS distributor.
