Hi Guys,

I have just bought 2 Ninco Imprezza's off ebay and the previous owner has removed the 4wd pulleys and belts. I am looking to get these back to standard but was wondering if these were single or twin belt. The Ninco refs are 50257 and 50308. I have had a search on google and here but could not find any answer.

Thanks in advance

Ste

I've got 2 Ninco Imprezas (50451, 50385) and both are single belt. Of all my 6 Ninco WRCs, only the '05 Lancer has twin belts.

you can make them whatever you want. 2 belts seem to be a little "firmer", but you can then also choose from 3 different belt lengths & 3 different spring strengths on the shocks; these cars can be tuned very nicely & are always a threat in competition.

Hi Guys, thanks for your answers. I have also checked with a club member who has confirmed what Stu said also the only twin belt Impreza's are the pro race ones.

Thanks Again

Hey Guys.

From my experience, it is better to run two belts slightly slack than to run one belt tight !!.

When using a car with a seperate motor pod, the single belt pulls to one side.

This affects handling to a remarkable degree.

All my quick 4x4 have two belts for that reason.
