ehm your pinion has mod .5 and the idler .6 that would be a problem with meshing teeth.

Using @waterbok link he posted it appears the pinion is a 16t .6 mod.  I shredded a 48 pitch 16t RRP today with the MIP improved idler.

I have one of these on order and I will let you know how it works.

Have been in a bit of a holding pattern with this for a bit as there are still questions to be answered about the transmission as well as trying to locate a decent windshield/glass for the 3B. Additionally, the more I think about it, the staggering of the front and rear wheels (which are now narrower) will likely be a problem stability-wise; I'm pretty sure it will make a tall vehicle more tippy than it already is. I have seen some "axle lengtheners" on cheesebay but they don't look like they'd do the trick. Anyone have knowledge about these?

So that's where this project is at the moment, not going any place, but not going forward either. :-\
