    Let's convince Daox of his next modification then. I'm thinking a Torsen unit would suffice. Apparently Mitsubishi has already used them in the Pajero and the Triton.

    Do you notice any particular wear pattern on the pulleys and/or belt?

    The only wear was on the one edge of the primary clutch. There are some light marks, no gouges though. Name:  IMG_0679[1].jpg

Size:  91.7 KBI was expecting the primary to be spring loaded like a skidoo or at clutch but it just slides freely. You can open and close it easily. The secondary is tight with very light marks on it. Name:  IMG_0682[1].jpg

    Are those marks necessary for CVT operation, like some texture helps the belt do it's job?

    I'm asking because I don't know much about CVTs.

    I'd guess they're not necessary. They look like wear marks and are only on the one edge. The other side looks smooth in comparison.
