Thanks! I have a pair of spare pulleys and know idea what count they are. On another note does anyone know of a source for the 4-40 screws used in the chassis? I only need a few not the whole set.

Thanks in advance!

I just discovered that, while in storage, the belts for my XXX-S became brittle - the one in the car blew apart when I tried to run it... No - problem - I had gotten spares "back when" - pulled out a spare - it had gotten stiff and brittle too.

Is there any way to "recondition" a new/unused belt...? I know there are "belt conditioners" available in automotive parts stores...? WD40 (it seems to do a million other things)...? What is frustrating is that I have enough new-in-the-package belts, but they all seem to have gone "bad"... Weird...

Ideas?

When they fall apart, they're garbage. Losi's belts had a shelf life and most all are expired by now.

The yellow belts are the worst, the blue ones, not so bad. What the difference was, haven't got a clue.

Yellows had more rubber and blues had more urethane I believe.
