As for the tight belts did the previous owner run mod? They might have been tight to stop the belts skipping with a high power motor. If you're running a higher turn motor just adjust the cams so the belt is looser. I run mine fairly loose with a 13.5.

Okay, thanks. I busted out the calipers last night and checked everything, and it all seems to line up. There is in fact play in both diffs, I just couldnt tell because of the belt tension. It's also not quite a mm, maybe half a mm. I will just leave it.

Regarding belt tension, I don't know what the previous owner ran it in, but it probably was mod. I'll loosen them up a bit. Thanks.



Oh, and while I'm at it, is there some sort of master guide to setting this thing up? There are so many adjustments on this car, and I don't know what some of them do..
