Good question!

If it is too loose it will hit it's selt in boom and cause a tail glitch!

If it's too tight it will brake!

Might broke I CRASHED!

When I get my part in I,am going with what the manual says.
With light pressure you should be able to push it in to 1/2 of the front drive pulley.

I run mine a little loose and if it touches itself when pressed with light presure "its too loose". Also I spray it down with lube from time to time and it seemed to improve the wear factor as my belt still looks brand new.

I keep mine where with a decent amount of pressure it can bearly touch the other side of the belt. Also, before I put it in, I sprayed a coat of WD-40 in it so the belt went in easier.

You know you have to many heli's only when your wallet is empty.

it is really easy to give it a light coat of the spray oil of your preference (i prefer Rem-Oil, doesnt evap) if you spool up a little and BE CAREFUL...use the little spray tube and shoot it right on the rear belt pully as it is spining around.....takes no time.....

dont over do it, it needs almost none
