awesome carrier. i like this one more than the "lite" version you created. any chance of seeing a version with an updated belt attachement point at the back? one that aligns the belt with the pulleys. thanks for all your work

Nice design, very clean. There are some shortcomings though, there is no allowance for hardware clearance on the fan mount. The fan sits right up against the mounting plate and would hit the screw head. I am also not sure about the rear belts, no provision for those?

You're correct - I only have one screw holding the fan on at this point, but I think I'm going to replace that fang altogether with a more efficient design. The belts need to be attached to the rear, like in the original X design that this was remixed from - instead of the mounting plate used in the original design, I simply used a bolt & screw to secure it. This will also be addressed in V2... and I'd like to incorporate some sort of belt tensioner as well.
