The only drag about this is the variation with a half inch belt.
Just don't get enough.
I've got some ideas.
1. Machine the hobbit pulleys to be more steep, so a 1/2in belt can ride all the way up.
2. Change the rear side of the tensioner pulley to be smaller as to raise the ratio. In theory you could increase gearing to extremes never before dreamed of on hobbits.
I'm so surprised that I've never seen this built before. it's so dumb and amazing.
Now for tuning.
I'm going to first lighten the weights and spring as much as possible.
I gotta add that Variator brake but that's going to require some weed and some pondering and Cy Thoth in the garage. Maybe today.
Do I have any more brake calipers tho? Idk.
And my motomatic pulley is fucked, all bent up. Those gy6 pulleys are such fucking garbage. I gotta either bend it true or pop out the center taper plug and press it into a jog or Zuma rear pulley.
