I can't wait to hear how they hold up. For those that don't know, Js600 is also a test driver and will help in giving results. He joins skater-deez1 in trying to get as many laps on these belts before they are released to the public. This is only the beginning. If you guys are happy with them and all goes well, I will be trying to get some arms made for the front since they are becoming impossible to find. Hope you guys are half as excited as I am.

I was wondering what is this list?

I bought my XXXS back in the day, used an old FM crystal radio and had trouble with interference at my local race track so I put it on the shelf for years. When I tried it again using a brushless motor it stripped the teeth off the belt first run. I got a TC6.1 because everyone was running the new cars and I wanted to be competitive but I like the handling of the XXXS better. Currently set up for VTA, I think it would be good for stock as well. Still testing (Got two blue belts online)

This list was for people interested in belts and how many they are interested in having. If you read back through the thread a bit, I started doing some research and R&D on a belt that seems so far to work for it with a slight chassis mod. I posted pictures and will be releasing them to the public the second week in November if all goes well. This is not a for sale thread, I just want to share my info and let people know that the XXX-S isn't dead yet. The money I am able to get from the belts is just going to go back into development of more parts such as arms that people cannot seem to get anymore. Everyone still seems to love the XXX-S and I really love it too.

Also... Congrats on your first post! Glad to see you sign on.

I guess Rubbaneck, myself and the other 8 of us should have signed up to be test drivers.
We've been running our XXXS on dirt rally for some time.
Can't wait for the release.
We will definitely give feedback.
Looking forward to it bud.

Hey, if you guys want what I would consider to be "first run belts" to try... I'm more than happy to sell them to you. I just don't have enough for everyone. If it's something where you guys are interested in just getting your hands on a belt to use and beat up, I think we can arrange something. Tell ya what, I'll see about getting more belts in earlier than expected. I suppose I didn't realize so many people would want them but I'm very glad there's a need I can help fill. I really really wish we had VTA here so I could run mine.

Thanks Josh,
We sure would give you feedback if you can get us a couple to try.
We will find out quick if they will survive dirt rally, that's for sure.
LMK or Rubbaneck as it will most likely be our cars that do the testing. We are always up for testing!

Again, glad you are doing everything you can to keep XXXS's alive and having fun.

Well, I wouldn't mind having more people testing. Unfortunately, I still need to charge for them as I have a lot of cost. If you two want to be guinea pigs, I can give you my email and we'll chat about it more. I just hate for the majority of people to feel left out... but I do understand what you're saying about wanting to try it for your specific purpose.

Email received skid plate. Going to try to get ahold of Horizon today to see if any tooling is left from the car. That would speed up getting parts for you guys by a TON.

Thumbs up Initial Test Runs!

Ran a couple of packs today with a 4.5 lrp and expected to stretch the belt some,didn't happen it held up perfectly! Hoping to get more than 3 runs in tomorrow,started to sprinkle a little so I pulled the car.While it may have been ok I'm not a big fan of getting electronics wet.In short though the belt worked well!

Awesome news. I was really worried about a mod motor simply because I've never run one... but that kevlar does it's job and keeps the shape consistent. Great to hear!
