manual says there's 4 spurs in the kit:- 105, 112, 120, 128 @ 04mod

kit pinion is 38

there's only max 4mm in motormount screw slots to move front/back, be less in perpendicular to spur


diff pulleys are 37, the other 4 small pulleys are all 18

the 1st small pulley (driving front diff) CANNOT GO BIGGER as it'll hit motor cave
but then you'd not need for a bigger pulley here anyways, only smaller = ok.
Also there is no tensioner here except for diff mounting cams.

2nd & 3rd... no constraints afaik :) layshafts are 46mm apart
Nothing in their way, spur/pinion in different plane
so you'd be really trying to make belt foul motor shaft.
Tensioner moves up/down maybe 1mm.

Image

4th pulley can't go much bigger than +3mm radius (12.5 - 9mm) or you'll hit the CF backbone.
Rear tensioner moves up/down maybe 2mm & also diff mount cams.

This will have me busy for a few evenings. Thanks for info, do you have any iOS device to test prerelease version when it's ready?

P.S. VDF1 had several spurs included too, but build instructions mentioned one particular teeth count. Which is it for VDF2?

VDF has same 112/120/128 spur trio in the kitbox, manual shows 128 being used

VDFii manual shows 112 being used (& the 128 is pictured blacked out "unused")


haha are you an iOS developer? i signedup yrs ago but haven't done anything further :yawn:
