TC-FD.R.B. 2.0 CS

Postby DocV3030 » Sat Nov 19, 2011 4:14 pm

Props to Katsumi for helping me with this CS set-up! The drive belts were tial and error, but eventually I got the belts to fit nicely.

DRB/BD5 40T Front one way w/74T front drive belt stock 18T front center pulley (direct fit= no shimming or trimming)

20T Rear Solid Axle w/156T rear drive belt and stock 18T rear center pulley(needed a 1mm thick, 10mm diameter shim placed over the long end of axle)

That's pretty much it. I haven't had the time to mess with the chasis set up for ride height, camber, caster, toe in/out, shock and spring set up, tires, ect...
All I know is that ever since I went from 50/50 to 2.0 on a stock chasis, it slides very nice, tight switchbacks, and medium to long sweepers are ok, but I feel the need to hold cs longer. The front steering block is currently at 2.5 toe out, and the rear is at 3.0 toe in...It was recommended to me to decrease rear toe to allow the chasis to hold a longer cs. Any tips on chasis set up would be greatly appreciated.

Thanx, I know....hb needs to catch up or try not to get everyone's hopes up next time. For a kit they claim to have cs as an option, shouldn't have been advertised as such without having the cs option available...IDK why they do that...
I'm thinking of how to get 1.5 through 2.0 with just a rear pulley and belt combo for each cs ratio.
Something like 40/20 with a 75T or 76T drive belt up front (static)
I wonder if this would work...if I increase front center pulley by 2T then wouldn't that increase the front while decreasing the overall cs ratio...so if I went up 2T on the front center pulley with a 75 or 76T front drive belt, thereby increasing the front wheel spin by 0.2, which then decreases my overall cs ratio (2.0) down to 1.8, yeah?
something like
40/18/18/20=2.0 (current 2.0 cs) a variable ratio for the rear as in:
40/20/18/20=1.8 w/156T rear drive belt
40/20/16/20=1.6 w/155T rear drive belt
40/20/15/20=1.5 w/154T rear drive belt
Correct me if I'm wrong, I assume that the rear will still be spinning faster than that of the front with the 20T solid axle, regardless, IF the front remains STATIC @ 40/20...
