2 Belt is much more efficient and it is easier to work on. and there is not many way to place a 1 belt drivetrain with that layout either..

Cool, I'm hoping I can make it. Might have to catch a ride with some people over here.

Hopefully I'll have my hands on a Type-R by then .

It's simple why the new sedan has been pushed back. Losi is owned by Horizon. Horizon sees more $ in the Monster truck and 1/8th scale vehicles. They get the go ahead while the projects that generate less income get pushed back. Even their 1/10th scale truck isn't on the radar. And historically a new buggy or truck is followed by the other. Even AE is plagued by this.

Sadly, large and micro scale vehicles are hot at the moment, so that pretty much means we sit back and wait. And wait. Hopefully they'll get around to 1/10th scale soon. Hopefully.

What custom tools do you feel you need besides a metric nut driver for the wheels nuts? No one is doing a single belt car that I am aware of. I thought that was just unique to the XXXS.

No custom tool are needed to work on the car, the only thing that you will need is a 7mm nut driver for the wheel nuts, other than that nothing more than you already have in your pit box.

I use the small Novak black fans on my car #5651, but any fan that is 25mm x 25mm will work.

I just hope they don't pull a PS3 type thing and they only release 700 kits in this first batch. Then the unlucky ones like me that didn't get one will have to wait until mid July for the full production. Let's hope and be positive this doesn't happen.

Is a one way or spool going to be released when this car is released? I am looking to buy a new car for rubber tire on asphalt and it seems the Mi3 and the T2 007 EU are the only ones taking rubber tire into account from the factory.

At our club track, the 540 class usually will gear their motors as high as possible. Can you fit a bigger pinion gear on and still get a good gear mesh?

thanks guys
i have got a green spur 88 teeth
i have got a 86 spur 86 teeth
with a 34 pinion it runs better with the 86 tooth red spur
so in other words i need to fit maybe a 37 or 38 pinion
is that correct
thanks
